Bornacoola Club Notes – 30/08/17

Senior Championship We suffered a disappointing defeat in Round 4 of the Senior Championship when Dromahair were deserved 2-11 to 0-14 victors over the Bors in Ballinamore on Saturday evening last. The dismissal of Damian Moran in the first period was a significant blow for Bornacoola and one from which we never recovered. It now means that this weekend’s game against Drumreilly is a must win fixture – throw-in in Páirc Seán for this one will be 5.15pm.


Lough Rynn Harvest Festival & Vintage Day The biggest day in the parish calendar comes to pass again next Sunday when all roads lead to Lough Rynn Castle for the 2017 Lough Rynn Harvest Festival and Vintage day. And what a day it promises to be with a bumper list of attractions – something for every member of the family. So come early, enjoy the festival and the beautiful venue and then relax and finish the day (with a dance) to the great sound of Mick Flavin and his band. Club members will again be performing stewarding on the day and we’d ask as many of our players and members as possible to make themselves available to help out on the day.


Club Draw Our thanks to Derek and staff at the Copper Still for hosting the August Club Draw on Saturday night last – winners were: €100 Ruby Shanley €20 Paddy Joyce, Pat Farrell (Esker), Deirdre Mc Keon, Gerry Gearty and Mervyn Howard.


Junior B Championship The Junior team exited the championship on Sunday morning last when they were overpowered by St Caillins on a 2-16 to 1-9 scoreline. Goals in either half for the Fenagh men proved crucial and it was the victors who led by 1-8 to 0-5 at the interval. A second goal put the game beyond the Bors although a late John Shanley effort briefly offered some hope. Team on duty was Conor Hackett, Luke Jones, Brian Reilly, Kevin Mulligan (0-1), Tony Shanley (0-1), Liam Mulligan (0-1), Gearoid Mulligan, Mervyn Howard, Daniel Farrell (0-1), Roy Keenan (0-1), Liam Jones, Jonathan Duffy (0-1), Gerry Gearty, John Shanley (1-1) and Noel Mc Enroe (0-2). Subs used were John Bohan and Declan Conboy.


Ladies Championship The Bornacoola/St Mary’s Ladies team face Annaduff this Sunday (September 3rd). Time and venue to be confirmed but keep an eye on our facebook page later in the week for same. Best of luck to all involved.


Golden Goal Mayo will aim to end 66 years of hurt when they face Dublin this year’s All Ireland final and we will once again be running a Golden Goal competition for the big game – the first prize of €500 will be paid to the person who purchases the ticket with the correct time in which the first goal will be scored in the final on September 17th.
