The Kildavin Clonegal GAA lotto
WAS held in Osborne's Lounge, Clonegal, on Sunday, 13th July.
A group of athletes and volunteers from Carlow Special Olympic Athlete leadership Programme (ALP's) spent the weekend raising money so that they could purchase a defibrillator for local soccer club, St Fiacc's FC in memory of their late Chairman, Pat O'Keefe, who passed away suddenly last year.
Naomh Brid's Senior hurlers started their championship campaign at a blistering pace against St. Mullins in the J.J. Kavanagh Senior hurling championship Round 1 at Dr. Cullen Park on Sunday evening.
Defending Carlow Senior hurling champions Mt. Leinster Rangers were held to a draw by a lively Ballinkillen side in the opening game of the 2013 J.J. Kavanagh and Son Senior hurling championship at McGrath Park on Friday evening.
Even though Naomh Eoin enjoyed most of the play over the hour it was two goals from Robbie Foley in the second half that decided this J.J. Kavanagh Intermediate hurling championship round three game at sun-drenched McGrath Park on Sunday.
While it didn't quite attract the crowd that organisers were hoping for, those taking part seemed to enjoy themselves at the 5km Fun Run for Setanta GAA Club.
Of the three games played in the opening round of the J. J. Kavanagh Senior hurling championship Naomh Eoin were the only winners defeating Erins Own by five points at Dr. Cullen Park on Sunday evening, the other two games finished level.
It's back! Championship hurling in Carlow has come bursting back to life after the weekend and already it looks like 2013 is going to be very tight.
Mullingar had almost everything on Sunday from championship weather to championship football but sadly there was a complete disaster when it came to the public trying to get their hands on tickets.
It's a wonderful feeling leaving a championship game when your team has won and for the Carlow hurlers that feeling is something which no Carlow team had ever had before Saturday.
SCORING 3-7 in the second half would win a lot of games, but it wasn't enough for Carlow Minor hurlers as they came up two points short to Kildare before bowing out of the Electric Ireland Leinster Minor hurling championship at Dr. Cullen Park on Saturday.
The football leagues continued at the weekend and another surprising string of results are the talk of the football community among Carlow folk.
Carlow secured their rightful place in the Irish Daily Star National League Division 4 final following this comprehensive win over neighbours Kildare in the semi-final clash at Mountmellick on Sunday.
There are only three rounds of football played so far this year but at Junior, Intermediate and Senior levels the standard of refereeing is becoming alarming with inconsistency the main complaint among Carlow football followers.
At half time in this Minor hurling match there was only slight cause for concern for the Carlow team as supporters may have felt they didn't use the stiff breeze to its full advantage.
St Anne's got their league campaign off to a great start with a 2-6 to 1-7 win over Palatine ladies in Palatine on Friday evening.
The Carlow Coyotes ladies rugby team just keep on winning and there appears to be no way in the world to stop them.
