Senior Hurlers:
Congratulations to our senior hurlers on completing an historic Senior Hurling Double in Monaghan on Sunday to go along with the Kilmacud All Ireland Sevens Shield after a 0-18 to 1-10 win over Castleblayney in the League Final. This Sunday they begin their Ulster Championship campaign against Lisnaskea at 3.30pm in Pairc Grattan.

Intermediate League:
Last Wednesday we picked up our fifth consecutive win, beating Aughnamullen 2-10 to 0-08. Our final two league games are scheduled away to Tyholland and Aghabog on 9th October and 24th October respectively although these depend on the progress of our senior hurlers in Ulster.

Raft Race:
The annual Inniskeen Raft Race takes place this Saturday, 2nd October, at 3.00pm. The water level is being closely monitored to ensure the race can be run safely. This year will also see the inclusion of a kayak race. The cost of entry is €120 per Raft / €35 per Kayak. The race starts at Magoney Bridge and finishes in Inniskeen Village. The race will be followed by a night’s entertainment in the Inniskeen Social Club. Contact Noel Brady on 0879529238 for more details.

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. We have been forced to push back the date of the draw due to a delay in the distribution of tickets.

Bereavements:
