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
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.
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
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.
