Club Notes – 16/08/17
Our seniors played Leitrim Gaels in round 3 of the championship in Drumshanbo last Sunday afternoon. Despite missing a number of players, our lads got off to a blistering start with two Colm Kiernan points either side of a Eoin Ward goal giving us a 1-02 to 0-01 lead after 6 minutes. An uncharacteristic mistake from Enda Lyons gave Leitrim Gaels a foothold in the game and at halftime time they lead by 2 points, 1-05 to 1-03. Both sides continued to exchange points in the 2nd half but a converted Gerard Percival penalty in the 9th minute of the 2nd half proved to be the crucial score. Leitrim Gaels immediately replied with 3 points in as many minutes but our lads kept going and scored 4 further points to hold out for a 1 point win, despite relentless pressure in the last 5 minutes. Final score: Carrigallen 2-09 Leitrim Gaels 1-11. Team and scorers: Enda Lyons, Anthony Kenny, Darren Reilly, David Reilly, Danny Lyons, Barry Dolan, Ciaran Kenny, Brian O’Rourke, Eoin Ward (1-01), Gary Reilly (0-01), Gerard McDermot (0-01), Marc Dolan, Colm Kiernan (0-02), Ciaran Flynn and Gerard Percival (1-04). Subs: Andrew McManus for Gerald Percival. Our next game is against Kiltubrid the weekend after next.
Junior “A” Championship
Our juniors play Allen Gaels in round 2 of the junior championship in Ballinamore next Saturday at 5:30. Please support.
St Joseph’s U13s continued their recent good run in the championship with a win over Kiltubrid in Aughavas on Thursday evening. Playing against a strong breeze in the first half, we were two points down at half time on a scoreline of St Joseph’s 2-02 Kiltubrid 1-07. We were fortunate to be as close as we were at this point as our first half performance left a lot to be desired with many misplaced passes and overall lack of energy contributing to a disappointing opening period. The second half was much better as the lads upped their work rate and with the wind at their backs were able to run out winners on a somewhat misleading final score of St Joseph’s 7-13 Kiltubrid 1-11. Well done to both teams and the referee. Next game is away to Drumkeerin, date tbc.
Well done to St. Joseph’s U15’s who had a comprehensive win over Allen Gaels in Drumshanbo last Monday. Our next game is against St. Mary’s in Carrigallen next Thursday at 7pm.

Good luck Jessie:
Best of luck to Jessie McManus, daughter of Carrigallen and St. Mel’s legend, JP, who plays in the halftime exhibition game between Mayo and Kerry next Sunday. Hopefully this is the only time we see Jessie in a Mayo jersey.
