Our juniors played Allen Gaels in Round 2 of the Junior “A” Championship in Ballinamore last Saturday.

However, Allen Gaels dominated the early exchanges of the 2nd half, scoring 7 unanswered points, before a Colm Kiernan goal put the game beyond any doubt. Final score: Carrigallen 3-14 Allen Gaels 0-11. Team and scorers: Darren Kenny, Evan O’Connell, Maris Polis, Conor Gray, David Percival, Ciaran Reilly, Ciaran Gray, Ciaran Kenny, Gary Reilly (0-1), Sean McCabe (0-3), Gerard McDermott (1-0), Eamon Dolan (0-1), Ciaran Kellegher (0-3), Colm Kiernan (1-4) & Conor O’Neill (1-2).

St. Joseph’s U15’s had a hard fought draw against St. Mary’s in the championship last Thursday evening in Carrigallen.

However, a more determined second half effort saw us leading by 1 point heading into injury time, only for St. Mary’s to snatch a draw at the death. Final score: St. Joseph’s 3-08 St. Mary’s 0-17

St Josephs U12s took part in Mohill Festival tournament on Saturday. In the group stage we recorded a win over Drumlish and defeats against Ballinamore and Mohill.

We are saddened to learn of the tragic passing last week in Florida, USA of Kelly Rooney Leonard. We extend our sympathy to Kelly’s mother Jacqui, father David Leonard, her step father Eamon Quinn and her brothers Kevin and James. Ar dheis dé go raibh a anam dílis.
