Melvin Gaels GAA Club Notes 24/10/2017

Dunnes Bar ACL Div 1 Final

On Saturday evening in St Mary’s pitch Carrick on Shannon the Gaels took on County Champions, Mohill, in the Senior League Final. “Storm Brian” made good football difficult and nearly impossible. The Gaels played well and were ahead by two points at halftime. They could have been further ahead but scoring was very difficult. In the second half, Mohill got the vital scores that ensured they had a one-point win at the final whistle. The result was in doubt up to the end and the Gaels were unlucky. This group of young players have done the club proud in the League and championship this year and but for the long list of injuries, it could have been so different. Well done to all players and mentors.
