Intermediate League:
We faced an away trip to Donaghmoyne last night, Wednesday. Result next week. We are scheduled to play away to Doohamlet next Wednesday, but this may be postponed due to our senior hurling team’s involvement in the championship final.

Senior Hurlers:
The senior hurlers have qualified for the final of the Senior Hurling Championship to be played on July 31st/August 1st against Castleblayney after an impressive 6-13 to 0-06 win over Carrickmacross. The club would encourage all our members to come and support the team as they look to win the club’s first ever Senior Hurling Championship.

Reserve Hurlers:
The reserve hurlers take on Monaghan Harps tonight, Thursday, in the semi final of the Reserve Hurling League at 8.00pm in Pairc Grattan.

Fund Raising Draw:
Tickets are now on sale for the Inniskeen Grattans Development Draw. The 1st Prize is €5000, 2nd €1500 and there are 10 prizes of €100 to be won. Tickets are €20 each or 3 for €50 and are available from any committee member.

Raft Race:
The annual Raft Race which has become a huge local attraction in Inniskeen will be run by Inniskeen Grattans GFC this year. It is hoped to run the event in the autumn time, but this will depend on the water level in the Fane. This year will also see the inclusion of a kayak race. More details to follow in the coming weeks.
