Results: Int Football League: St Mary’s 5-05 v’s Ballyhogue 1-16 U-16 Hurling: Forth & Bargy lost to Rathgarogue Cushinstown

Hard luck to David Murphy and the Wexford Football team on their defeat by Meath last Sunday. Wexford were so near and yet so far from another Leinster Final performance. All roads now lead to Longford for the Qualifiers.

Hard luck to Liam Griffin and the Wexford Minor Hurling team on their defeat by Laois last Sunday week in the Leinster Semi-Final. In truth a combination of a below par performance from Wexford and the ability of Laois saw Wexford go down on the day.

As part of the up-coming Kilrane / Rosslare Harbour Festival – St Mary’s Rosslare will run a bottle stall on Sunday week as part of the village fair. This stall proved such a success both for the promotion of the club and as a means of fundraising last year. The success of the stall is dependent on the generosity of the members, players and supporters of the club. To this extent we are asking that all would consider donating bottles for the stall. The bottles can be bottles of alcohol or minerals. The more bottles we can collect the better chance we have of raising much needed funds for the club.

All bottles can be brought to training in the coming days or next week or they can be dropped to Trish Kavanagh, Paul Murphy or James Sheil also. If anyone has any queries they can contact Trish on 087-2771168. We would ask all to be as generous as they can as all funds raised will be used to support all aspects of the club.

The Next Order for Club Gear will be placed on 15th July and on the 15th of every month there after . Anyone who wishes to order Gear can contact Trish Carroll on 0862655655 or Corinna Sheil on 0868681925 or from the Complex on Monday’s from 7:15 – 7:45pm
