Mohill GAA Club Notes 29/08/2018

Recent Deaths – The Club extend deepest sympathy to the family of John Hynes who died last week. John was married to Kathleen Mitchell a great footballing family in Mohill and was uncle to players Ronan Gallagher, James and David Mitchell. He worked in Quinns of Mohill for many years before the family moved to Leixlip but always kept close contact with the town he loved so well. May he rest in peace.

Richie Flynn RIP – Condolences also to the family of Richie Flynn who died last week leaving behind a grieving wife and two very young children. It is so sad for all his family as his father Liam only passed away a short time ago. Richie was also a member of a great footballing family in Mohill and supported the Club always. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.

Senior Championship – After a slow start in Ballinamore on Saturday last the seniors finally got the measure of a strong Drumreilly challenge and emerged worthy winners in the end.

Intermediate Championship – The Intermediates were beaten by three points in their game with Ballinamore at the weekend. It was a close game all through with all players giving their all.

Under 17 – The minor boys collected some silverware on Sunday last when they narrowly beat Dromahaire in the Div 2 Shield final. Dromahaire were ahead for most of the game but our lads showed great heart to dig deep and get this victory. Most of the players are eligible for next year so hopefully 2019 should be a good year for them. The panel and scorers was, S Moran, C Donoghue, F Cassells 1-0, J Murphy, L Ellis 1-1, D Duignan 0-2, G Reynolds 0-1, C Quinn 1-2, S Bohan 0-1, C Keegan, C Mulligan, A Nitche, C Wuabah, A McCrann 0-2, N McNabola, S Curran, D McCrann, Well done to John Baxter, Matt Gaffey and Paul Tighe who looked after these boys all year.

Latest arrival – Congratulations to Ursula and Niall Beirne on the birth of their little baby Rían. We wish them joy and happiness.
