Carrigallen GAA Club Notes 06/11/2017

Sympathy – It is with great sadness that we note the passing of John Joe Dolan, Church Street. A member of the famous Tully team of the 40’s, John Joe is surely Carrigallen’s most decorated footballer, holding a McRory cup medal with St. Pats; a Leitrim senior championship with Tully; as well as Connaught Minor and Junior championships with Leitrim. He also represented Ulster in the colleges’ interprovincial team. The Dolan family have had an unbroken association with the club throughout the years with John Joe’s grandchildren, Barry and Marc current players on our senior team. We extend our sympathies to Con, Michael, Marie, Geraldine and Colette, daughter-in-law, Bernie, grandchildren and extended family members. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.

Michael Kenny Memorial Tournament: We held our 3rd annual Michael Kenny tournament in the park on Bank Holiday Monday with all proceeds going to Leukemia Trust. Minor teams from Carrigallen, Aughavas, Fenagh and Rinn Gaels participated. After some keenly contested games, Carrigallen and Fenagh battled it out in the final, with the hosts scoring the winning goal in the final seconds to take the title. Fittingly, Mary Kenny presented the cup to her son, Ciaran, in his final game as a minor. Thanks to all our club members who volunteered on the day ensuring everything ran smoothly. Thanks to our sponsor Darren Reilly, Philip McIntryre for the sound, Paula Kiernan for music and especially James McCaffrey and Fintan McBrien who refereed the games. Thanks also to all the ladies who helped with the food in the club rooms.

Well Done Girls:

Well done to St. Joseph’s ladies who had a great 0-11 to 0-09 victory over Dromahair in the senior championship final replay played in Bornacoola last Saturday evening. These girls have shown fantastic character to continually come back despite suffering defeat in so many finals and would not be denied on Saturday in a tense encounter. Well done girls and enjoy the celebrations. 

U13 Championship Final:

St Josephs U13’s played Fenagh in the final of the 13-a-side championship on Friday evening at the centre of excellence in Annaduff. Unfortunately for our lads it was a game in which they struggled to gain a foothold against a physically stronger Fenagh team who enjoyed a comfortable victory and are deserving champions. Hard luck to our lads who put in a great effort all year and have made good progress and hopefully they will have better days in the future. The panel of players on Friday evening was Jonathan Harkness, Ben Harte, Fiachra Casey, Eanna Mc Namara, Cathal Mc Namara, Liam Mc Intyre, Pearse Kenny, Declan Brooks, Kalum Mc Loughlin, Aodán Harte, Harry Wilson, Cian Mimna, Darren Shortt, Dylan O’ Connell, Tommy Kearney, Fionnan Harte, Gary Mitchell, James Quinn, Keelan Furlong, Padraig Maguire, Jack Mc Intyre, Matthew Mc Cabe, Kevin Doherty, Cian Mc Hugh. Thanks to the large group of supporters who attended the final and other games all year and helped provide transport to away matches. Thanks also to Ciaran Harte, Fintan McBrien, Noel Shortt and Padraig McLoughlin for their huge commitment throughout the year.

U15 Championship:

St. Joseph’s U15’s played Fenagh in the U15 (15-a-side) championship semi final in Carrigallen last Monday. We performed very well in the first half against a formidable Fenagh outfit and led by 5 points at half time. Fenagh began the second half strongly, and after converting a penalty, our lead was reduced to the narrowest of margins. However, an excellent final quarter saw us score three goals and run out winners on a final score of St. Joseph’s 3-11 Fenagh St. Caillin’s 1-08. We now meet St. Mary’s in the final, date and venue TBC. Keep the green & blue flags out in support of these young lads.

Intermediate Championship:

All roads lead to Ballinamore next Sunday when we take on Aughnasheelin in the championship semi final at 2:30pm. We have had a great run in the championship after a poor 1st game and hopefully our lads can deliver another performance on Sunday. Good luck lads.

Intermediate Championship:

Our seniors had a good win over Ballinaglera in the quarter final of the intermediate championship in Aughavas last Saturday evening. We got off to a blistering start and, inspired by an outstanding Eoin Ward, we led by 2-06 to 0-04 at half time. Things got even better in the second half when a third Eoin Ward goal left us eleven points ahead. However, Ballinaglera responded immediately with a goal of their own and scored an additional three unanswered points to leave just five between the teams. The crucial moment of the game came with six minutes to go when Enda Lyons brilliantly saved a Ballinaglera penalty when all the momentum was with the North Leitrim men. Two points from Colm Kiernan and Ciaran Flynn in the last three minutes of the game put the result beyond doubt. Final score: Carrigallen 3-10 Ballinaglera 1-10. We now progress to the semi final where our opponents will be Aughnasheelin. Team & scorers: Enda Lyons, Anthony Kenny, Barry Nash, David Reilly, Darran Reilly, Barry Dolan, Barry Reilly, Eoin Ward (3-05) Gary Reilly, Ciaran Kenny, Daniel Lyons, Gerard McDermot (0-1), Marc Dolan (0-1), Ciaran Flynn (0-2) & Colm Kiernan (0-1). Subs: Thiernan O’Rourke for Marc Dolan, Matis Polis for Gerard McDermott and Andrew McManus for Ciaran Kenny.

U13 Championship:

Intermediate championship:

Our seniors travelled to Cloone last Sunday morning to take on Kiltubrid in round 4 of the intermediate championship. The early exchanges of the 1st half saw both sides swap points before Carrigallen took control of the game mid way through the 1st half with a well executed Eoin Ward goal after great work from Gerald Percival in the build up. However, we failed to build on our advantage, allowing Kiltubrid back into the game and trailed by a single point at half time. The second half followed a similar pattern to the first with Carrigallen building a 4 point lead thanks to points from Gerald Percival (2) and Ciaran Flynn and an Eoin Ward penalty after some great work from Daniel Lyons. This left us 4 points up with 13 minutes to play. However, we failed to score for the remainder of the game and Kiltubrid scored 4 unanswered points to draw the game. Final score: Carrigallen 2-10 Kiltubrid 1-13. Team & scorers: Enda Lyons, Anthony Kenny, Darren Reilly, David Reilly, Barry Reilly, Barry Dolan, Daniel Lyons, Brian O’Rourke, Gary Reilly, Marc Dolan, Eoin Ward (2-0), Gerard McDermot, Gerard Percival (0-6), Ciaran Flynn (0-3) & Ciaran Kenny.
