Fenagh St Caillin’s GAA Club Notes 03/10/2017


With two championship semi-finals up for decision, last weekend hopes were high of reaching the final in both. In the first game on Saturday morning our u17 team took on St Mary’s Kiltoghert. The first half was closely contested with Mary’s going in at half-time a goal up. The Fenagh lads hit some good form as the second half progressed and hit goals at crucial times running out winners on a scoreline of 6.11 to 2.09. This win sets up a County Final meeting with neighbours Sean O’Heslins on Sunday 15th October. On Saturday evening the Junior B semi-final took place with Glencar Manor the opposition. Despite Fenagh starting well and leading through the second half, Manor got a goal at a crucial time and try as they might Fenagh couldn’t respond with Glencar Manor holding out in the end for a 2 point victory on a scoreline of 1.09 to 0.10.
