Connacht SFC Leitrim v Roscommon – Good Luck to the Leitrim team when they take on Roscommon in Pairc Sean on Saturday next. The Club wishes special good luck to Gaels lads Emlyn, Darragh and Cillian.

Dunnes Bar League Game v Aughnasheelin – On Sunday the Senior team had a good win over Aughnasheelin in Melvin Park. Playing without the County players, the Gaels had to dig deep to secure a valuable two points in this game. They got off to a great start and had a five-point lead after the first ten minutes. Aughnasheelin fought back and went into the break leading by two points. In the second half, the Gaels took some good scores and ended up winning on a scoreline of Melvin Gaels 2-10, Aughnasheelin 2-8. Well done to all the players and mentors.

To get your “Mark on Melvin Park” contact Spar, Kinlough or Pat at 0871787194 or Katherine at 087 287 0086 or go towww.kinloughcommunitycentre.wordpress.comEveryone knows that the facilities at Kinlough are not up to the standards needed to facilitate the Melvin Gaels Club. The Club has been successful over the years on the playing field and we want the facilities planned for this project to match this success. With the help of all the Community, this can happen!
