Allen Gaels GAA Club Notes 20/09/2018

Senior Championship – We bowed out of the championship on Saturday evening in Pairc Sean losing to defending champions Mohill on a scoreline of 3-17 to 0-08. After an encouraging opening 20 minutes, it was all Mohill as we faded out of the game. The final margin was harsh on the players who put in a big effort. While we showed flashes of promise this season, we certainly learned that Division 2 is no preparation for the senior championship and it is important that everyone remains focussed for the coming weeks with a crucial league playoff with Dromahair to come that will decide who joins Annaduff in Division 1 next year. We wish Mohill well in the remainder of the championship and well done to the players & management for their commitment all year.


St. Francis Ladies – The intermediate final is due to be played the weekend of September 30th so best of luck to Paul, Gareth and the squad as they prepare for the big game.


Minor Ladies – The ladies play Keeldra Gaels in the championship semi final which is a home game for us on Saturday morning. Best of luck to Ciara, Dermot, Ann and the girls.


U-15’s – The lads play Glencar Manorhamilton away in the next round on Friday evening.  Good luck to Farrell, Angus and the team.
