Because of the Bank Holiday next weekend,  the Lotto draw will take place, as is customary, on Monday evening May 7th in Connolly’s Lounge, Scotshouse.



We had two league fixtures in the last week, with mixed fortunes. On Wednesday in Monaghan  against the local Harps a late injury time free gave the Monaghan town side a draw and on Sunday last in Scotshouse, the failure to have a legitimate score registered and the denial of a late free gave the Carrick team a slender one point win. While we are under no illusions that maintaining senior ranks will be difficult, a certain amount of ‘the rub of the green’ will be necessary for to make this happen. In both games our defence has been excellent with Conor and Enda Mc Caffrey and Ben Clerkin adapting really well to senior ranks. Fergal Connolly in goals has been stability personified while up front Stephen Smith has been superb, being our top scorer  in all games.
