County Final

The stage is set for the biggest day in Leitrim Club football and Mohill has the privilege of being part of this spectacle. You just don’t walk into a final without massive effort and our panel and management have put in months of training in sometimes difficult conditions to get where they are. The whole parish and surrounding clubs will be out in numbers to cheer you on and may the best team win and may that be us

Club Colours

The town is resplendent in the green and white and it’s still not late to put out your flag and bunting. The local businesses have been very generous with their help and donations and deserve your custom. All will be mentioned in the programme on Sunday.

Missing Supporters

So many of our faithful supporters passed away before their time this year, the list is too long to mention but their nearest and dearest will know who we mean. They will be sorely missed on Sunday next.  May they all rest in peace.

Junior B Final

On Sat next in Ballinamore, we meet Glencar Manor in the Junior B final so everyone can go there and support these young and not so young players. It will give people a chance to practice their cheering in preparation for the senior game the day after. Best of luck to players and management Shane Quinn and Domhnall Flynn

Under 17

These young men played the last game of the season on Saturday last when St Joseph’s beat them by one point in the Shield semi-final. We thank the panel and management of Matt Gaffey and John Baxter who put in endless time training. We say goodbye to Tadhg Doherty who now leaves us to play with his club Cloone. Tadhg has played his heart out for Mohill –as do all the Cloone and Eslin players- since he was Under 12 and has developed into a handy player who will be a great asset to Cloone. The team and scorers was S Moran, F Cassells, J McGuiness, J Murphy, J Bohan, C Quinn, N Keegan 0-1, S Bohan 0-1. P ONeill, J Boyle, M Tiernan, J Reynolds 2-6, T Doherty, N McNabola 0-1, N Lennon.

Minor girls win

At last our lovely ladies have got their hands on a trophy. The Under 18s achieved this in a nail-biting Shield Final against Keeldra Gaels on Sunday morning last in Kiltubrid. The score was 4-1 to 1-9 and nerves were frayed all through. The panel and scorers was: Michele Hackett, Evelyn Reynolds, Sinéad McNabola, Sarah Doyle, Niamh Beirne, Emma Quinn 1-0, Alannah McGuiness, Clodagh Mitchell, Rachael Stenson, Gemma Stenson 3-0. Subs used were, Chloe Mulligan, Laura Casey, Emily Harkin while the rest of the panel was, Bella Rowley, Sarah Murphy, Ellen McGuiness, Sophie Ferns and Geraldine Reynolds. The victory was a fitting reward for Simon and Siobhán McGuiness who keep training the girls through thick and thin.

Senior Championship

Thanks to the hard work of mentors and players over the last nine months the people of Mohill can now enjoy the build-up to the County Senior Final in two weeks time. St Mary’s were at their peak on Saturday last and only a point separated the sides at the end of a tough but sporting encounter. Glencar-Manorhamilton will be our opposition on October 8. Get out your flags and buntings now and light up the town.

Under 13

After a long year of disappointments and near misses, the Under 13s, at last, got their hands on silverware, when they beat Drumshanbo in the shield final in perfect conditions in Fenagh on Sunday morning. This was a brilliant game of football with all the skills on view and only a point separating the teams in the end. Luke Bohan pulled off some great saves in goal while Adam McGuiness, Daniel Scott, Michael Tiernan, Eoghan Duignan, Jack Rowley and Cathal Donoghue were heroic in defence. James Foy and the towering Conor Keegan played very well at centre field, Conor covered every inch of the pitch and saved many attacks on the goal, he also scored 1-3. The forwards worked tirelessly and took their scores well, Senan Curran, Thomas McNabola 1-0, Colin McNamara 0-1, Shane Duignan, Matthew Murphy our top scorer all year scored 1-10 and Michael McDonagh. Subs were, Aidan Mulligan, Diarmuid Casey, Brandon Logan, Liam Flynn, Shane Mulligan, Anthony Lubey, Harry Boyle and the two injured goalies Oskar Moj and Aaron McCrann. We thank Paul Murphy, Seamus Tiernan, Kevin Curran and John McGuiness for looking after the boys.
