Sponsor Our Sod Fundraiser
Work is planned to commence next month on the development of a state of the art all-weather playing pitch and training area on the recently purchased 5 acres of land adjoining the current Caulry playing facilities. This project will be completed with the aid of a recently acquired Sports Council Grant coupled with sponsorship monies to be raised by the Caulry Club itself. To this end the club are launching a 'Sponsor Our Sod' fundraiser initiative, whereupon  present and former club members, players, supporters and friends of the club are invited to sponsor a sod on the new playing pitch for €50 and in return all sponsors will have their names permanently displayed and celebrated on a special plaque to be erected on the club grounds. All sponsors will also be entered into a special draw with excellent prizes to be won which will take place at a special club function to be held in Egans, Mount Temple on June 25th next. For more details and sponsorship cards please contact any Executive Committee Member or call Padraig at 086 4083946 or Irvine at 086 8578257. A committee member will be calling to all houses this week.

Junior Championship
Caulry 1-9
Garrycastle 0-8
Caulry got their Junior Championship campaign off to a winning start with a good win over neighbours Garrycastle on Friday evening last.
Caulry raced out of the tracks with an early goal from Stephen Brookes after a superb pass from Eoin Donohoe. With a strong breeze on their back, Gary Flanagan and Paddy Sleator pointed for the homeside. Emmet Nally defended well to earn himself a point on the quarter-hour mark. Garrycastle kicked their first score of the game to narrow the deficit. Some superb defending from Conor Dolan and Ernie Buckley allowed Mark Fitzpatrick and Stephen Woods to add to the scoring tally. A late point for the opposition left the scoreboard reading 1-5 to 0-2 at the interval.
The teams traded scores early in the second half with Alan Daly on target for the homeside. Michael Carroll brought off a great save in goals to keep Caulry’s noses in front. The defence held tight and two pointed-frees from Alan Daly stretched our lead. Gary Flanagan had a strong game in the middle of the field and good defending from substitute Harry Hughes allowed Sleator to add to the scoring tally. A Garrycastle point late in the half left four points the margin at the final whistle.

Senior Championship
Caulry 0-11
Coralstown/Kinnegad 1-6
Our senior team followed suit on the following Sunday evening where they fought hard to earn a two point victory in their opening game of this year’s SFC on a scoreline of 0-11 to 1-6.
Caulry were first off the mark with a point from Paddy Sleator inside the opening 60 seconds. Coralstown/Kinnegad were slow to settle with their first score of the game coming on the 4th minute. A pointed-free for the opposition meant they took the lead for the first time. Alan Fitzpatrick and John Maguire fielded well and some superb play from Damien Dolan allowed Eoin Fox to point for Caulry. Declan Donohoe and Kevin Maguire defended well as both teams traded scores, with Robbie Hickey on target for Caulry, to leave the scoreboard reading 0-3 a piece at the halftime whistle.
On the resumption the opposition raced out of the tracks and pointed to take the lead once again. Points from Hickey and Kevin Maguire narrowed the deficit early in the second half. The opposition rattled the back of the Caulry net on the 8th minute and after two missed goal opportunities it looked like it was not Caulry’s evening. However, our defence held strong with Conor Dolan and Ernie Buckley valiant in their endeavours. Caulry began chipping away at the deficit with two scores from Conor McCormack. Joe McMahon brought off a great saves in goals, the rebound which was tapped over the bar. Another Coralstown/Kinnegad point left Caulry trailing by two points with just two minutes remaining. Our lads dug deep and a pointed-free from Hickey left just one point the margin. Substitute Emmet Nally worked hard and tapped over a superb score to leave it level pegging late in the half. Further points from David Brookes and Nally meant Caulry escaped with the victory on a scoreline of 0-11 to 1-6.
