Club Notes: 28th October 2020

Notaí CLG Tulach an Iarainn sponsored by Goalpost Ireland Tallow .

Deise Super Draw: It is going ahead on the 4th of November. Could any money owed be handed over to ones promoter over the weekend please. 

The Championship without a Pulse: Watching a few games over the weekend and while both were high scoring it doesn't  mean that they were necessarily good . The empty stadiums have taken some of the soul out of it and atmosphere for the most part did play a big part. They seem like glorified league games but the players can only play what rules and regulations are in front of them. Waterford play Cork this Saturday on Sky Sports Mix  ( yes it sounds like a bag of sweets) or WLR and there is no form guide going into it and people are totally unsure what to expect of us. A win here were be huge to the team.

I was given to a picture and a letter this week that I said I would share. The letter is an invotation for Mick Curley for play for Ireland in London. The competition I'm unsure of (possibly the Tailteann games) played in London I would say sometime in the thirties
The letter went as follows.

M.Curley esq.
GAA Tallow,
Co Waterford. 

A Chara,

             As you are aware , you have been picked to play with the Irish team in London. You are to travel to London on Saturday morning next. 
I enclose two tickets: one for Tallow on Saturday morning and one from Waterford to London. You can travel on the Dunlaoghaire boat on Saturday evening, the train may go on to Dunlaoghaire. Anyone at the Kingsbridge station will tell you what train to get for the boat, if your train does not got to Dun Laoghaire.
The remainder of the players will be on the boat and you will be accompanied by an official. Please bring two hurleys along with you. You may return on Monday evening as you desire.

Mise, le meas,
P O'Coaig.

Waterford Team Picture is from 1937 and was taken in Cappoquin in April . Given that he was April it must have be the National League and the opposition was Clare. We had three men playing that day. 
Back Row (l to r) Dave Doyle, Paddy Duggan, Christy Moylan, Charlie Ware, Jackie Haplin, Willie Barron, Doyle Walsh, Johnnie Fanning, Tom Greaney, Nicholas Kelly (suit).

I don't know the identity of the young boy. 

Online lotto: We are hoping all going well that we will get it going this weekend. 

Keep on Running: Georgina Cunningham our medical officer did a virtual marathon at the weekend and we would like to commend her on her great undertaking.
