Club Notes 16th Oct

MAURA CURRAN
It is with deepest regret that we have to talk about the death of our friend Maura Curran, who in her life time was one of the greatest supporters of our club. Along with her late husband Michael she always had a keen eye on how our club was progressing and was always on hand to help with all our fund raising activities especially our club Lotto which she had a special interest in,been the overseer of Lotto Procedures up to very recently. We have lost a special Lady and a friend and she will be sadly missed by all who support the Old Borough.The club was saddened to hear of the death of our first lady club secretary in the early hours of October 15th 2017. Maura became our secretary in 1983 and she served in that capacity until 1995 during which time she oversaw the purchase of our club grounds and our three in a row County senior football titles. Maura also served as PRO from 1995 until 2000 and she was served as either membership officer or on the committee until the year 2008.

INTERMEDIATE FOOTBALL
We travelled to Cappoquin last Saturday to play the Western Football Semi final against Ballyduff. Yet again we were beset with a slow start and we had to wait for the first goal to settle and for a while it looked like we would score more goals than points. We came away with a good win and now have a Western Final to look forward to, we do not know who we are playing as the other semi final between Colligan and Modeligo was a draw. Well done to all concerned.

About Dungarvan GAA Club

Dungarvan GAA Club was affiliated to the Gaelic Athletic Association on June the 1st 1885 - the first club in Waterford to do so. Through thick and thin, good times and bad, we have stayed the pace, and to-day we are the oldest - and I dare say the best - club in the county. We stand uniquely alone as the only club in the Decies to have won county championships in every grade from Under 12 up to senior in both codes.
