Mohill GAA Club Notes 18/07/2018

Liam Flynn RIP – The Club extends deepest sympathy to the family of Liam Flynn Hill St. who passed away last week. Liam played football with Mohill for many years. He won a minor championship in 1954 and went on to play Junior and Senior in the fifties. He was a prominent player when Mohill won the Junior League and Championship in 1957 and he and his family have remained true supporters all his long life. Ar dheis lámh Dé go raibh a anam dílis.

Dunnes Bar Div 1 – Mohill played two games last week in this division. On Wed we had a home game against League leaders Glencar/Manorhamilton. This was a fine open game with both sides eager to play football. Mohill won on a scoreline of 1-11 to 2-6. Scorers for Mohill were J Reynolds 1-3, R Kennedy 0-3, D Flynn 0-3, R Gordon 0-1, S Quinn 0-1. On Saturday we met Gortletteragh and the win there was overshadowed by a serious injury to star young player Jordan Reynolds, Jordan sustained a double fracture to his arm so he will be out for a number of weeks and will be a great loss to Mohill. We wish Jordan a speedy recovery. Scorers on the night were, D Flynn 0-4, J Reynolds, C Kennedy, J Mitchell, K Keegan, S Quinn 0-1 apiece.

Newtowngore Engineering Under 17 – These lads were missing some key players due to injury when they played Manorhamilton on Monday last, nevertheless those present all played well and with a bit of luck could have pulled off a win but were beaten by a goal in the end. The scorers were, N McNabola 0-3, C Keegan 0-2, K Curran 1-1, A McCrann 0-2, C Macklin 0-2, S Bohan 0-1.

Barna Recycling Under 13 – This age group played their first round of the championship and a draw was a fair result 1-12 to 1-12. Our panel and scorers was, L Bohan, A Mulligan, A McGuinness, J Rowley 0-1, C Donohue, M Tiernan, L Flynn, S Curran 0-1, E Duignan 1-3, C McNamara 1-1, M Murphy 0-7, C Walpole, D Casey, D Beirne, B McCrann. The reserve side played very well and had a good win, scorers were, C McNamara 1-3, K McCaffrey 0-3, D Beirne 2-1, S Curran 1-1.

Well done Eslin – Congratulations to Eslin who won the League final on Saturday with a victory over Aughavas. Best wishes in the forthcoming Championship
