MICHAEL GLAVEYS   Michael Glavey’s 5-11 Boyle 2-9. Our U-14s had an excellent win against Boyle on Thursday evening last in the league final. It was an evenly matched first half but Glaveys for their part put some good moves together in the second period and goals from K. Fitzmaurice, P. Morris and S. Burke put the game beyond Boyle.

Hoare or Michael McNeela.

The first half was a hard fought affair with Tulsk dominant and playing well but wasteful in front of goal sending 8 or 9 wides, Tulsk went into the break a point down. The second half proved more successful, Tulsk upped their game all over the field and with Jack Conlon kicking 3 fine points helping Lord Edwards to a 4 point victory. It was a solid team performance with hopefully more to come. This weekend is the first big weekend of the summer with the Intermediate team taking on Shannon Gaels in Tulsk on Sunday. After a great run in the O’Gara cup this is the first real test at championship level. There has been a lot of hard work put in since January and a large crowd is expected to attend. The club would like to wish luck to Tommy and the lads on Sunday. The game is fixed for Tulsk at 2pm but check fixtures to confirm.    ST MICHAELS   In the Intermediate Championship St Michaels play neighbours Boyle on Sunday evening at 6.30 p.m. at Ardcarne Park, Cootehall. Both sides have already lost to Castlerea so this game is a knockout fixture with the winners progressing to the quarter finals and the losers facing a relegation battle. Alan O’Hara ended his distinguished career as a Roscommon county minor on Saturday with an outstanding performance against Laois in Thurles. Alan and his colleagues have brought great pride and enjoyment to the county and their supporters over the past two seasons and can hold their heads high despite Saturday’s defeat. ST JOSEPHS Due to adverse weather conditions and water-logged pitch, our championship game against St. Aidan’s was called off. Apologies to all players who travelled long distances to be at the game, and also to those who travelled to support the Joes. The match will be rescheduled for a later date.

We also thank the girls from Kilglass Gaels and Strokestown for their effort. Barry’s had a comprehensive win against Western Gaels in the Junior A Championship game played at Elphin.  We wish a speedy recovery to Eamon Leavy who suffered a severe knock in last Sunday’s game in Elphin.
