Harps GAA look forward to Championship 2016
Championship Time: It’s that time of year again when the very much anticipated Hurling Championship commences. This year, our Senior Hurlers will face local rivals Ballinakill in what promises to be a mouth-watering tie next Sunday, July 24th at O’Moore Park, Portlaoise. This game is due to throw-in at 7.30pm, however there is a chance that this game may be played earlier in the day, so please keep an eye on the Club’s Facebook Page, Website or Twitter page for any updates.
The Junior Hurling Championship sees The Harps pitted against Ballypickas the night before (Saturday, July 23rd) in Mountrath GAA grounds. This game throws in at 7.45pm and promises to be a hotly contested clash – so please come along and support the lads.
The Minor Hurling Championship has already begun and The Harps overcame a hotly tipped Castletown side to progress to the next round. The Harps lads gave a magnificent performance against the favourites and after extra time ran out winners on a 6-15 to 3-16 scoreline. The Harps will now play Na Fianna in Shanahoe on Tuesday evening, July 19th at 7.45pm. We again appeal to everyone to get behind the young lads and cheer them on this Tuesday.
Our Junior Footballers will take to the field for the first time this year to face Ballylynan in the Championship. Crettyard GAA will host this game on Thursday, July 28th at 7.45pm and we appeal to everyone to make the trip to the southeast of the county and support the lads.
Garth Brooks Experience Night: The Harps GAA would like to thank everyone who supported the recent Garth Brooks Night fundraiser held in Lennons Venue. There was a great crowd on the night with many local people and folks travelling from far flung places to hear the band who provided excellent entertainment, keeping the crowds on their feet dancing all night long. The club would like to thank everyone who helped out in making the night a success – whether it was cooking, selling tickets, managing the door or advertising – it was all much appreciated.
