Senior Championship – Our Senior Championship campaign continued on Saturday last when we faced Aughnasheelin in Cloone. Bornacoola were much sharper than they had been in their opening encounter with Allen Gaels and led early in the game as they took the game to their opponents and managed some good scores. However, the key score of the game arrived midway through the first half when Aughnasheelin grabbed a well worked goal and that was to prove a decisive cushion throughout the remainder of the game as the Aughnasheelin men went on to record a deserved 1-17 to 0-13 victory. This Saturday we face Glencar/Manorhamilton in Ballinamore at 5pm. Team on Saturday was: Danny Farrell, Jason Conory, Gary Mc Closkey, Conor Mc Cauley, Kevin Mulligan, Anthony Mulligan (0-1), Allan Croghan (0-2), Damian Moran (0-3), Colm Farrell, Cian Mallon, Sean Mc Keon (0-2), Ollie Vaughan (0-1). Philip Howard (0-2), Michael Duignan (0-1) and Ronan Mulligan. Subs used were Brian Conroy and Mervyn Howard (0-1).

Fun & Sports Day 2018 – Our annual fun and sports day takes place on Sunday August 19th at our club grounds in Dromod. The 6k run/walk gets proceedings underway at 12 noon and will be followed by mass and sports events. Sports activities will include underage games, fun races, tug of war, face painting much more, A great days fun and activities are promised for all the people in the parish of all ages and we look forward to seeing you all there.

Minor Championship – Rinn Gaels had a good victory on Monday week last when they overcame Glencar/Manorhamilton on a 3-11 to 1-9 scoreline in the Minor Championship. The team are in a strong position having won 3 out of their 4 games to date.

Ladies Championship – Bornacoola/St Mary’s were back in action on Friday evening last as they took on Fenagh in their second match in the excellent Aughavas facilities. Having won their first match comfortably, this turned out to be a much more competitive affair with the girls eventually prevailing on a 1-10 to 1-5 final scoreline. Despite Sarah Reynolds hitting the back of the net in the very early stages, the Fenagh girls were not to be deterred and served their intent with some fine scores from play throughout the half. Indeed the first half was very evenly matched and a late penalty converted by the Fenagh ladies saw the teams enter the half-time interval on level terms 1-4 each. On the resumption, Bornacoola/St Marys played with renewed determination and greater pace and with the defence holding the opposition to a solitary point over the half hour, they added six points to their total to establish the match-winning margin after a highly competitive and enjoyable championship match played in an excellent spirit by both teams. Well done to the girls on their efforts so far in this championship season which have guaranteed a semi-final place with two group matches still remaining against St. Francis and Mohill later this month. On duty on Friday evening last were: Kathy Butler, Hannah Reynolds, Jasmine Maye, Joanne McGushin, Enya Guckian, Lorraine Guckian (0-1), Emily Reynolds, Alison McKeon, Kasey Bruen (0-1), Sara Crowe, Aisling Leahy (0-4), Rachel McGarry, Sarah Reynolds (1-0), Kelly Howard (0-4), Lisa Guckian, Hannah Farrell, Isabelle Chandler and Ellen Woods.

It will take place on Sunday night October 28th in The Copper Still; tickets will be on sale shortly and four lucky people will have the chance to Spin the Wheel for the top prize of €1000.

U12 GIRLS – Well done to our U12 girls’ team and management on retaining their county title on Monday in epic fashion.  Once again, the girls showed their never say die attitude and it paid off in the end, winning by the narrowest of margins.  This group of girls has come such a long way in such a very short space of time.  While each of the girls on the field worked tirelessly credit must also go to their equally dedicated teammates on the sideline who got behind the team from the very start to get them over the line. Hard luck to an excellent Manorhamilton team, we knew it wasn’t going to be easy as the teams couldn’t be separated in the group stages.  The final result was St. Mary’s 1.10, Manorhamilton 2.06.  Wishing Nicole Glancy who broke her wrist in a game last week a speedy recovery.  We hope to see Nicole back on the pitch playing again before too long.

The panel on the day was Emmanuella Olabiyi, Victoria Moore, Emily McGovern (0.01), Chloe Murphy, Kayleigh Earley, Mairead Lowe, Áine Morgan, Keelin Cronin (C), Emily Reynolds, Faith Lynott (0.01), Ellie Butler (1.03), Rebecca O’Neill (0.01), Ruby Lowe (0.01), Sarah Lowe (C) (0.01), Holly Corcoran, Nicole Glancy, Sarah McTiernan, Amber Hickey O’Flynn, Hannah Walsh, Micaela Gallagher (0.02), Hanora Brady, Holly Slevin, Caireann O’Grady, Caoimhe Doran, Chloe Costello, Lauren Deegan, Elodie Maye Gazzonet, Laura Faughnan, Tiffney Hughes, Urwah Imran, Mia Gately, Zara Cronin, Isabel Lowe

Senior & Junior Ladies – Congrats to our Senior Ladies who topped their group with a comfortable 8-16 to 3-6 win over Oughteragh Gaels on Sunday morning last in Leitrim Village.  At halftime the game was very much in the mix as the Manor ladies went in five points ahead playing against the breeze. After halftime and aided by the breeze the Manor girls built on their first half performance to claim a valuable two points. They have now qualified for the Championship semi-final to face Dromahair, who had a comprehensive win on Sunday evening over Aughawillan to qualify for the semi-finals. The semi-finals will be played in two weeks time with Kiltubrid and St Joseph’s taking the other two final four spots.

U12 Girls – Hard luck to our U12 girls side who lost by the narrowest of margins to St Mary’s in the County final on Bank Holiday Monday. Played in front of a good crowd, the Manor ladies started brilliantly to go in at halftime Manor with a 1-04 to 0-3 point lead. Unfortunately, a late scoring spree from St Marys grabbed the win on a final scoreline of Manor 2-06 St Marys 1-10. The girls did themselves proud on the day and throughout the season under the watchful eye of Brendan McLoughlin, Vinnie McMorrow and Grainne Rooney. Thanks to the girls and the management team for all their hard work throughout the campaign.

Senior Football Championship Round 2 – We headed to Cloone to play Bornacoola Saturday eve  – game started at a fast pace with Bornacoola getting on the scoreboard with a point from Brian Conroy in the first minute Brendan Mulvey got us off the mark with a good point followed by a point from Barry McWeeney both teams traded points  with Gavin Sammon scoring a good point a good move up the field saw Wayne Gilgunn  score a great goal – think it could be a first for Wayne in Championship football – Gavin Sammon got his 2nd point followed by Ciaran Cullen with 2 points and Brendan Mulvey got our last score before halftime – at halftime it was very close 1 7 to 7 points.  Ben McGirl started for Christy McNulty in 2nd half – Fintan Fitzpatrick had a point from a free in the 1st minute, Fintan also got our next score followed by a great point from Ben McGirl – we had a great chance for a second goal but didnt happen, Fintan was back with another point followed by a good score from Sean McWeeney – Bornacoola got some nice points and stayed in the game we pulled away in the last quarter with good points from Fintan Fitzpatrick, 3 points from Gavin Sammon, and our last scorer  was Damian Gilheaney with a good point he had  replaced Kevin McWeeney and Dean Flanagan came on for Gavin Sammon  – over all this was a good team performance and a well deserved 2 points.

Next Saturday we play St Marys in Drumshanbo at 530 – please along and show your support for all involved.

Connacht Gold Leitrim Senior Championship – It was a hard-fought draw for the senior lads on Saturday in Cloone when they took on our neighbours Drumreilly in the second round of this year’s championship. As was expected Drumreilly were a stern test and led by 1 point at half time with the score 0:07 to 1:05. The second half started well for Drumreilly with the adding a couple of quick points to give them a three-point lead, the lads rallied and after 10 minutes the sides were level. Both team continued to trade points before Drumreilly scored an important goal to lead by three with 14 mins of the second half gone. It was nip and tuck for the rest of the game with the lads levelling and then taking the lead only for Drumreilly to level near the end, with the final score 1:12 to 2:09. The result leaves the lads on second in the group on 3 points level with Drumreilly and one point behind Mohill, the next match is on Saturday in Pairc Sean against Dromahair at 1730

It was a tough match for the lads who eventually lost to this very experienced team, the lads never gave up and fought to the bitter end and showed how far they have progressed over the last year and it was fitting that Kian McGovern received the man of the match award at the end.

The tournament was a massive success which gave the lads some very competitive games and they picked up some excellent skills in these last few months.

A huge thanks to their great management team of Niall Connelly and Paddy O’Connor for their dedication to these young hurlers.

Niall Higgins Tournament – The annual Niall Higgins Memorial Tournament took place in the park on Bank Holiday Monday and Clann na nGael from Roscommon emerged victorious in the final with a 4-01 to 0-08 win over Allen Gaels. It was a great day’s entertainment and we thank Clann na nGael, Shannon Gaels/Kilmore, Mohill, St. Mary’s Kiltoghert & Glencar Manorhamilton for travelling and making the tournament a big success.
