Allen Gaels GAA Club Notes 07/08/2018

Niall Higgins Tournament – The annual Niall Higgins Memorial Tournament took place in the park on Bank Holiday Monday and Clann na nGael from Roscommon emerged victorious in the final with a 4-01 to 0-08 win over Allen Gaels. It was a great day’s entertainment and we thank Clann na nGael, Shannon Gaels/Kilmore, Mohill, St. Mary’s Kiltoghert & Glencar Manorhamilton for travelling and making the tournament a big success. The U-15 competition provided a series of very enjoyable matches and the results were: Allen Gaels 5-08 G/Manorhamilton 1-02; Clan na nGael 7-04 Mohill 4-04; Shannon Gaels/ Kilmore 2-08 G/Manorhamilton 0-06; St. Mary’s 2-08 Mohill 1-04; Allen Gaels 4-07 Shannon Gaels/Kilmore 1-04; Clann nGael 3-03 St. Mary’s 1-06. In a thrilling final Clann na nGael prevailed against Allen Gales 4-01 to 0-08 with a man of the match display from the Clan goalkeeper, Neil Hannon, who repelled a barrage of goal chances from the home side. Many congratulations to all who took part and a big thank you to Cyril McKeon & Mal Guckian for officiating the matches. Thank you to all who helped out in the clubhouse during the day, to the umpires and well done to the organising committee especially Farrell McKeon, Angus Fee & Stephen McWeeney. A special thanks to Paddy & Mairead Higgins who attended on the day and to Paddy for presenting the medals & trophy.
