Club Notes

BOYLE The U-14 team had a comprehensive 3 -22 to 1-10 win over St. Brigid’s in the Division 1 League. Their next game is against Clan na Gael on this Thursday at 7.30pm.  The McGovern Directional Drilling team continued their winning ways with a victory over Elphin on a scoreline of 0-12 to 1-6 on Saturday evening in Elphin. They have one outstanding game against Oran, which will be played in the coming weeks.  The Abbey Park was in resplendent condition on Saturday for the Community Games Sports. The preparations for the sports were interrupted by the unexpected arrival of a helicopter as the breeze from the rotor blades scattered the track markings throughout the pitch. Congratulations are extended to Mark O’Donoghoe who won a Connacht medal in his first appearance in the Roscommon junior colours in Pearse Stadium on Sunday. Congratulations are also extended to John Brennan (son of club stalwart Michael) and his bride on their recent wedding.  Good wishes for a speedy recovery are extended to legendary Boyle full back and supporter Anthony Keenehan who underwent an operation recently. CASTLEREA ST KEVIN’S Our Gilmartin’s Cash & Carry sponsored senior team play Roscommon Gaels in the O’Rourke Cup this weekend. We had a great win over Kiltubrid, Leitrim on Tuesday evening last in the Leo Kenny Cup, there is also the possibility of a Tansey Cup game on this coming Sunday. Congratulations to Roscommon juniors on winning the Connacht junior final in Galway on Sunday last, Michael Killilea played a vital role in this victory. Commiserations to Roscommon senior team on their defeat against Galway on Sunday last. Geoffrey Claffey and Gerard Heneghan were both members of the team and Enda Kenny was a sub, also hard luck to Roscommon minor team who lost out narrowly to Mayo in Castlebar on Saturday night last. Niall Collins, Bernard Carty and Michael Sweeney were all members of the panel and indeed Niall Collins was one of the best players on view on the evening. Hurling: Our U-14’s lost out to a stronger Roscommon Gaels side in the B county final on Saturday in Rockfield in a very sporting contest. The weather was ideal and the pitch was in excellent condition, thanks to the Oran Club.  The absence of the injured Garbhan Madigan was a severe blow but all our lads gave 100% until the final whistle and did their managers and the Club proud. Hurling training for the Under 8s, 10s and 12s will continue in the Community School pitch on Thursdays at 6.30 pm.  O’Rourke Park: Work on re-sodding O’Rourke Park is now complete but the ground must be rested for a period of time before use. We hope that very shortly all teams will be able to return to the park for games and training, in the meantime training for the different teams goes ahead as scheduled either at the Community School or at the C.P pitch in Tarmon. We are very grateful to the Community School and the committee of C.P soccer club for allowing us use of their facilities for training. We extend sincere sympathy to the Hanmore Family, Harristown, on the death of Michael Hanmore, a former club player; also to the Cahill family, Main Street, on the death of Ted Cahill, brother of Frank Cahill.

Although the score line suggests an easy win, this was anything but, as with less than 10 minutes to go the result was very much in doubt but the Clann girls dug deep and finished in style scoring 1-5 without reply. Player of The Match went to Rebecca Naughton who never stopped running and carrying the game to St Mary’s. Captain Karen Nicholson received the cup from County Secretary Francie Keane and thanked everyone including the management team of Kevin Naughton, Terry O’Neill and Mickey Dunning. Busy Weekend: It was a busy weekend for many of the U-14 Girls. On Friday night they secured the league and cup double with a 2-1 win in Tullamore with Bealnamulla girls under the guidance of Mickey Dunning and Aisling Egan. After the county final on Saturday some of the team took part in the community games soccer finals, with the U-12s winning 2-0 and the U-15s winning after a penalty shootout.

Registration forms are available from club coach Caroline Geraghty in the schools or from the underage managers. CREGGS Both Creggs teams have been enjoying mixed results in recent games. On Friday evening the Division 4 team was defeated by a strong Roscommon Gaels side by 1-14 to 2-5 in a keenly contested league game at Hyde Park. Creggs fought back strongly in the second half but the Gaels powered by Francis Noone and Ross Shannon pulled away with some well-taken scores. Creggs had some good performances also from several players, with Robert White, Micheal Keany, Ronan Kelly, Enda O’Rourke and Kevin Raftery outstanding. On Saturday Creggs played Glenamaddy in a challenge match, which ended up all square at 1-9 to 0-12. On the May Bank holiday weekend, Creggs division 4 team defeated Oran in the Declan Harrington Shield played in beautiful conditions at Rockfield. Thanks to Oran GAA who invited us to participate in this worthy tournament and congratulations on the excellent organisation on the day.  O’Gara Cup: Creggs 0-9 St. Croans 0-14 – St Croan’s pulled away in the closing stages to claim victory in this league game. Brian Mullin at full forward gave a fine exhibition of free taking and this proved decisive in a contest in which Creggs failed to make sufficient use of a strong wind in the first half, leading only by one point at half time. The Creggs defence worked hard throughout, with Joel Mc Philbin and Daniel Keane outstanding. EIRE OG The Intermediate team are back in action this weekend. They’re due to play St. Brigid’s in Kiltoom – check fixtures for details. The following club players participated in an U-10 Blitz in Frenchpark last Wednesday evening: Shane Quinn, Eoin Walshe, Ronan Dooney, James Lafferty, Ronan Cahill, Conor Coleman, Jarlath Lavin, Matthew Webb, Lee Corrigan, Sean Groarke, Kieran Lavin, Kieran Dolan, Ciaran Walshe, James Walshe, Aaron Woods, Mark Finan, Jason Tuithe, Hayden Impey.  Congratulations to Mick Jordan and his Roscommon Junior side that overcame the plucky challenge of Leitrim to claim the Connacht title at Pearse Stadium on Sunday.

U-14s – On Friday evening last our U-14s had home advantage against a strong and powerful Eire-Og. However, our boys had the chinks in the Eire Og armour well sussed early in the game and they proceeded to put on a fabulous display of football. The Green and White were well-deserved winners on the day. U-12s. Wednesday saw our young squad in Hyde Park for a challenge match against our good neighbours Roscommon Gaels. A beautiful evening with a good entertaining match provided for the spectators. We took a long time to settle, but edged out narrow victors. U-10s. Our U-10 squad had the busiest week, with the semi-final of the Kilglass Gaels U-10 tournament on Friday evening against Tulsk. A tough match, with Kilbride 2 points down at half time. The pep talk must have been something else because they came back out with all guns blazing and their shooting boots on. This saw them through to the Final on Sunday evening against Fenagh/St Cailan’s. Our boys and girls fought bravely but credit where it is due, Fenagh won comfortably and deservedly. Our thanks once again to Kilglass for inviting us to the tournament. KILGLASS GAELS The club would like to commiserate with Seamus Nugent on not been elected treasurer of the Co Board on Tuesday night last. Seamus lost the vote on a count of 29 to 37.   Seamus is a credit himself his family and the club because all the work he has done for Roscommon GAA throughout the years has meant that the whole Nugent family have been needed to stand at gates or sell tickets or raise funds. We congratulate Seamus on doing the hard work and wish him the best of luck with life away from the county board. They don’t know what they are losing.  Fixtures: Everyone in Kilglass must have been eating ‘crunchies’ as we had that winning Friday feeling with the club getting in to two county finals and winning a Tansey cup game as well.  In Kilteevan our Siobhan McHugh sponsored  U-14 girls had a great win over Castlerea in the co semi final. Our girls played very well they won by three points in the end and advanced to the final. Next up was the Rooskey Transport sponsored U-16 boys team who yet again were in a semi final in Kilteevan. St Croan’s were never going to be easy beaten and both teams showed heart and determination and a never say die attitude and they fought hard for their place in the county final and won by two points and they now advance to play Oran in the final which will be late next week. To complete a great weekend Kilglass beat Kilteevan in the Tansey cup. The club would like to wish Sinead Connellan a speedy recovery after her recent leg operation and hope to see her back on the playing field very soon. The annual Kilglass sports day will be held in the pitch this Sunday at 2.30. KILMORE The King and Moffat sponsored junior team were defeated 4-9 to 0-11 by Strokestown on Friday last in the league.

Final score St Barry’s 1-9 St Croan’s 0-9. This was a great display by the girls and it augurs well for the future of the Barry’s ladies football. The girls are entitled to all our congratulations and we also acknowledge the role of the management team in the great work they are doing with this squad of players. They are a small group but full of enthusiasm. Congrats girls. We send our Congratulations to Johnny Harte who won a Connacht Junior medal on Sunday last in Galway where Roscommon defeated Leitrim after extra time. Also well done to Finbar McGowan and Martin Guildford who were part of the panel. It was a great weekend for the St Barry’s club.    It will not be much consolation to David Keenan, his club congratulating him on lining out for his County on Sunday last against Galway, but the club were very proud of him and we are confident he will have a long and positive role with Roscommon senior football. Friday evenings on the Barry’s pitch is a sight to behold. The small dedicated bunch of people with 50 or 60 youngsters been put through their drill is the order of the day. So we need to ask can we help out in any way, I am sure the backup would be appreciated, so have a word with Seamie, Pat Peter, John, Seamus or whoever and see if they could do with a little help. Training for U-8’s and U-10’s takes place on Friday evening at 6.30pm at St Barry’s pitch.

Over the bank holiday weekend the Intermediate produced a great team performance, against a strong wind to defeat Creggs in the O’Gara Cup.  The junior team hosted Castlerea in the Tansey cup on Bank holiday Monday and this local derby ended in a two-point defeat for Croans. However a much improved performance saw Croans defeat Fuerty in a highly entertaining game on Sunday last. A quality team performance in the second half saw Croans come back into the game and aided by two goals from Declan Lannon, they were deserving winners by a two-point margin. Many thanks to Seán Hoban Tiling who sponsored a set of jerseys for the junior team.  The minor team were well defeated by St Aidan’s in the league on Sunday the 4th.

Brendan Hanley is back to his best again and with new young players such as Dec Dowling, Daniel Byrne and CC Corcoran coming through, Dominic’s are quietly confident of a good run this year. Junior Football Championship: St Brigid’s defeated Dominic’s on Friday evening last in Kiltoom. Our U-14 footballers played Padraig Pearses in the League in Knockcroghery on Thursday last and if ever there was a game of two halves this was it. Dominic’s were totally dominant in the first half but could just not finish off the moves while Pearses were on top form for most of the second half and levelled matters midway through the half but Dominic’s were then awarded a penalty when Sean McGloin was fouled and Donnelly crashed home from the Spot. Dominic’s only scored one other point and Pearses went on to win by 6 pts.  U-10 Football: Dominic’s played Roscommon Gaels in a blitz on May 1st in Hyde Park and this was a very enjoyable evening for all the players and parents. Both clubs had in excess of 30 players and all players got a game over a three Match Blitz. Dominic’s would like to thank the Gaels Club for hosting the Blitz and the refreshments after. Dominic’s will host the return Blitz in late May. U-8 Football: Dominic’s played Roscommon Gaels in a blitz on Thursday evening last in Knockcroghery and this was a very enjoyable evening for all the Players and Parents. It was nice to see a photo of the youngsters on the Sunday Independent on Sunday last. On Saturday last St Dominic’s Ladies U-14 team travelled to Kilglass Gaels to compete for the Division 2B title against Oran, the sides had previously met in the league with Oran coming out on top on that occasion. It was cool day which benefited both teams as the game was played at a furious pace from the off. St Dominic’s 1-10 Oran 2-5. No one could argue with Player of the match, which went to Caroline Gunning (Oran). We would like to thank all who travelled down and supported the girls. Well Done. Training times: U-16 training returning the 3rd June, 6:30pm. Newcomers welcome. Anyone who has not registered please contact the trainer on the night.

It was a weekend to forget for Donal Casserly, Seanie McDermott, Cathal Cregg and the Senior Team. Michael Higgins played on the minor team that lost to Mayo on Saturday evening. He won’t have much time to dwell on it as he has a big game coming up on Wednesday. He will captain Castlerea Community School in a Connacht C Final.
