Dunnes Bar Division 2 – It’s been a busy week for the team & management with two games in 4 days. We travelled to Drumreilly last Wednesday evening and after a titanic battle emerged with a share of the spoils on a scoreline of 4-11 to 3-14 in a cracking encounter. We led 1-10 to 1-07 at the break and with Caleb Duffy in imperious form were looking good for the points but a late goal for the home side earned a draw. Our scorers were: Caleb Duffy 3-06 (4f); Thomas Mulvey 0-02; Martin Beirne 0-02; Shane Walsh 0-02; Martin Raftery 0-01; Diarmuid McKiernan 0-01. On Sunday morning we had a home game against Glencar Manorhamilton and after another high quality game we came out on top on a scoreline of 3-10 to 0-13. Again this was a great battle and if Manor had converted some goal chances then it would have been a closer affair. We led 1-06 to 0-05 at the interval with Bryan Beirne finding the roof of the net in the 4thminute. Martin Beirne scored a goal in the 35th minute with a great finish from a tight angle and Thomas Mulvey secured the points when he coolly slotted home in the 52nd minute. Scorers: Martin Beirne 1-07 (5f); Thomas Mulvey 1-01; Bryan Beirne 1-00; Caleb Duffy 0-02. Best of luck to the squad & management in the remaining games as we chase promotion. We are fixed to play away  to Dromahair on Wednesday evening at 8:30pm and at home to Annaduff on Saturday, the two teams above us in the table. This means we have to play 4 games in 10 days which is a very big ask of players at this time of year with lads having to travel for 2 consecutive Wednesday night games. If the Fixtures Committee feel this is a reasonable situation then all clubs should have to play the same schedule and this is not the case!

Westlink Coaches U-15 Boys – The boys played their hearts out on Friday evening in Pairc Sean in the 15 aside league final only to come up short against Mohill. After a terrible start where Mohill netted twice in the opening minutes & missed a couple of other goal chances early on the lads settled and worked their way back into the game. Points from Arik Oberwan, Ciaran McMorrow (2) & Mark Reynolds stemmed the flow before we struck for 2 goals ourselves from Ciaran with a fortunate long-range effort and Radek Oberwan after a super pass from Shane McKeon. Ciaran added a free and remarkably we led 2-05 to 2-03 at the break. Unfortunately, Mohill struck twice for goals early in the second half after high balls into the square broke for them. Radek added a point & converted a penalty, Ciaran scored from play and Rory O’Donnell made a brilliant save to deny another goal as Conor Flood hit our last point late on but Mohill ran out deserving winners. Overall this was a very encouraging performance from the team who have grown throughout the league and with the return of Sean Lynch, injured in the semi-final and Ronan Moran, unavailable last week, the lads can look forward to putting it up to this fine Mohill side in the championship. Well done to the whole squad and to coaches Farrell McKeon & Angus Fee.

Dunnes Bar Division 2 – We lost to Bornacoola on Saturday evening in a downpour in Ballinaglera on a scoreline of 0-13 to 0-06. We trailed 0-05 to 0-02 at the break after missing a host of chances especially in the opening quarter. Despite the lads best efforts we missed 2 great goal opportunities in the second half to close the gap and Bornacoola added 3 points in injury time to secure the points. Nicholas Moore was our only scorer on the night with 4 frees & 2 from play which tells its own story. Although understrength this was a sloppy performance and there is lots to work on in the coming weeks.

Thanks – A big thank you to our neighbours Ballinaglera for the use of their pitch on Saturday evening. A special word of congratulations to the club on the installation of the new electronic scoreboard which even though it didn’t make good reading for us at the weekend is a great addition to the grounds so well done to all concerned.

Swan Bar Division 3 – We have a home game on Sunday morning against Glencar Manorhamilton but the pitch is still closed for a couple of weeks so details of the venue will be circulated later in the week.

Dunnes Bar Division 2 – We had 5 points to spare over Kiltubrid on Saturday evening played in Kiltubrid on a scoreline of 2-09 to 1-07. Two early points from play from Nicholas Moore settled us down before James Gill pointed a free for the home side on 9 minutes. Caleb Duffy found the net on 14 minutes with a great finish, quickly followed by another point from play from Nicholas and a second goal in the 18th minute from James Flynn after a good team move left us in control. Emmet Mahon & James Gill pointed frees for Kiltubrid in the 25th & 28th minutes before a soft penalty call brought the home side back into contention as Keelan McKeon finished to the bottom corner. Nicholas added a free in injury time to leave the score at the break 2-04 to 1-03. James Flynn from play & another free from Nicholas Moore extended the lead in the opening 5 minutes of the second period. James Gill pointed a free in the 36th minute before Ciaran Walsh & Nicholas both found the range from play to leave 7 points between the sides entering the final quarter.  Mickey Earley struck Kiltubrid’s only score from play in the 47th minute and James Flynn replied immediately after great work by Martin Raftery. Emmet Mahon & James Gill added 2 frees in the closing minutes to leave the final score 2-09 to 1-07. Well done to Michael McGovern who performed well in goals on the night. Our scorers were:  Nicholas Moore 0-06; James Flynn 1-02; Caleb Duffy 1-00; Ciaran Walsh 0-01.
