*NSW GAA League Round 4 results*

First up for the day were our Men’s footballers. They faced a determined Bondi Gaels side and came away with a 3 point victory on a scoreline of 1-13 to 1-10. Our lads controlled the game for large parts but couldn’t make it count on the scoreboard. However they’ll be happy to get the win on the board going into the Easter break.

Next up were our ladies who came up against a Central Coast side who were undefeated in the league coming into today’s game. Coast started the strongest and led by 3 points at half time but our girls worked hard in the second half and came away with a draw. Final score was Cusacks 2-10 Coast 3-7. Both sides will feel they could have won it but a draw was probably the fairest result with each team keeping their undefeated record for 2019 intact.

Our Camogs were up straight after the ladies football also against Central Coast. Coast started off the strongest and had built up a convincing lead at half time. Our girls dominated the second half but could not find that all important goal they needed and went down on a score line of 2-10 to 0-12.

Last up were our Hurlers who were back in action after having no game last weekend. They faced Craobh Phadraig and controlled the game from start to finish and came away with a convincing victory on a scoreline of 2-18 to 0-11.

Our B footballers were given the points by Bondi who were missing players and unable to field.

Well done to all our players today!

No games next weekend as it’s the Easter break but we’ll be back in action for round 5 on April 28th

Player of the matches today were:

Men’s football: Ryan McEnaney Carrickmacross Emmets Co Monaghan

Ladies Football: Sarah Nix
Feohanagh Castlemahon Co Limerick

Hurling: John O Donovan
Barryroe Co Cork

Camogie: Karen McMullan Castlewellan Co Down

Today’s Camogie match also marked the last one for Karen McMullan, who shortly makes the move home to Ireland. Karen, we wish you all the very best, you will be missed by us all! We look forward to seeing what you get up to back at home!

Congrats Sarah Nix and Karen Mc💪

Another one bites the dust!

We recently said goodbye to one of our longest serving Cusacks - Padraig O Reilly better known as Podge. Podge arrived back in February 2005 and after 14 years with the club has returned back to his home club, Clonguish, Co Longford.

Asked how we came about join Cusacks he said,
”My mate I travelled with was good friends with Gerry Nugent a Cusacks stalwart. I actually started working with John Ganley, a die hard Young Ireland’s man and he told me he wouldn’t have work for me unless I played for Young Ireland’s. But we had already been training with Cusacks and the craic was good. Thankfully John didn’t stick to his word and I worked with him for 6 years despite having a chronic case of Monday-yitis.“

His fondest memory of Cusacks: “Too many to pick one but they mostly revolve around days/ nights/ weeks out having the craic. From trips away, bus journeys back from Gosford or Mad Monday’s, some great times that I can barely remember but the bits I can are some of my best times in Australia. Melbourne Cup trip in ‘05 probably stands out. I’d just gotten my tax back so quit my job and lived the dream for about 4 weeks till the money ran out! 🙈

On the pitch probably ‘05 stands out again, maybe because it was my first year with Cusacks. We won the league beating a fancied Young Ireland’s team who had Tyrone’s Brian Mcguigan and Kevin Hughes in their side. I think we barely left Durty Nelly’s for a week!”

Podge was hugely involved in the club both on and off the field; referring men’s football for several years-both in Auburn and Ingleburn, as well as always putting his hand up to help with events – lining the pitch for our own All Sydney GAA tournament was always one of his favourite jobs! He also part trained and managed the men’s footballer in 2006-2007 all amidst of also playing.
Podges commitment was recognised back in 2010 where he was awarded with a framed jersey for playing over 100 games with the club at the dinner dance. He was also vice-captain for a NSW compromise rules teams that played the Aussies, and then also played for NSW against the Ireland team in 2008 in a lead up to the International Rules Series.
Podge returns home with a long list of honours:

⭐️ Michael Cusacks’ All Sydney GAA Championship 2015
⭐️Central Coast Competition 2006, 2009
⭐️Cormac McAnallens Beach Competition winners, 2012, 2016, 2018
⭐️Penrith Tournament, 2016
⭐️Tasmanian GAA Annual Competition winners, 2008
⭐️NSW Leagues in 2005, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016
⭐️NSW Championship 2010, 2011, 2016
⭐️Michael Cusacks Men’s football player of the Year 2008


Sydneys loss is Irelands gain; from all the club we wish you all the best at home Podge!⚪️🔴

LEAGUE ROUND THREE⚪️🔴

First up was our Camogs who were playing against Cormac McAnallens GAA - Sydney. In what was a very evenly contested game which could have went either way, both sides will be happy to come away with a share of the spoils on a scoreline of 3-7 to 2-10

Next up was our Men’s footballers. They also played McAnallens. Macs were sharpest out of the block and built up a 6 point lead at half time.Our lads battled hard in the second half but Macs came away with a deserved victory on a scoreline of 1-17 to 2-11

Our ladies footballers were next up against Penrith Gaels GAC. In what was a one sided game our girls kept their 100% record intact with a comprehensive victory.

Lastly was the turn of our B footballers, they played a strong Cormac McAnallens team who were very clinical on the day. Our lads workrate could not be faulted be Macs had too much firepower and came away with the win.

Our hurlers had a bye this weekend.

Player of the matches today were
Camogie
Emma Fogarty Kilcormac Killoughey Co. Offaly

Men’s football
