The latest news from the Thomas McCurtains GAA club

Thomas McCurtains’ camogie team began 2017 in fine style by triumphing in the Shield competition at the Erin Go Bragh Festival in Birmingham.

After a splendid first season in 2016, the Goodmayes club continued their impressive form, with Aimee Duncan awarded player of the tournament.

It was not such good news for the men’s footballers as they were beaten 1-9 to 1-7 at home to Eire Og in the preliminary round of the London Junior Championship.

McCurtains had started the brighter in Goodmayes, with a Conor Murphy goal seeing the hosts lead 1-4 to 0-5 at the break.

The second half, however, saw McCurtains struggled to find their range, with Eire Og taking full advantage to come back and win.

McCurtains women’s footballers are on the lookout for a new manager for the forthcoming campaign.

Anyone interested in the role should call Deidre McArdle on 07523 109547, or alternatively contact the club through social media.

New players are always welcome to join the club, with Gaelic football and hurling teams for both men and ladies from under-eights up to adults.

For more information, find the club on Facebook and Twitter, or alternatively email thomasmccurtains@hotmail.com.
