Glencar/Manorhamilton GAA Club Notes 04/09/2018

Senior & Junior Championships – Well done to our Junior team who defeated Mohill in the Quarter Final of the Pyramid Bookmakers Junior A Championship on Saturday evening in Leitrim Village.  They now await confirmation of their semi-final.  Our Senior team play Allen Gaels in Round 5 of the Connacht Gold Senior Championship this Saturday evening at 6.30pm in Páirc Seán while our Junior B team face Aughawillan in the Pyramid Bookmakers Junior B Championship playoff in Drumshanbo on Sunday at 12 noon.  Good luck to both teams and management. Please show your support.

Senior Ladies – What a great occasion it was for our club in Páirc Seán on Saturday evening as our Ladies contested their first ever Senior Football Final.  Unfortunately, the result didn’t go their way on the day but we are so proud of their achievements during the season which included winning the Senior League title for the first time.  The girls would like to acknowledge the fantastic support they received at home and in Páirc Seán on Saturday evening and the generous sponsorship received from McPartland Fuels/Sligo Fuels, MacManus Pharmacy and Fox Monumentals in the lead up to the final.  Massive thanks also to Shane Devaney, James Glancy, Eamonn Devaney and Dessie McNulty for their dedication in coaching and mentored this fantastic group of 45 talented footballers all season.  Finally, we congratulate St Joseph’s on a fully deserved victory.

U13 Shield Winners – A stellar performance by our U13s saw them overcome near neighbours Dromahair in the U13 Shield Final played in Glencar Community Park on Friday evening last in front of a large attendance of supporters from both clubs.  Joint Team Captains Shaun Sheridan and Conor Galvin were delighted to accept the Shield on behalf of their team mates and gave special mention to their management team of Adrian Croal, Kenneth McMorrow and Dominic Kelly. We congratulate the team on their wonderful achievement and applaud their management team for their commitment to this young crop of players all year which led to this well-deserved title. Finally many, many thanks as always to team sponsor Felim Gurn (Gurns Milestone) for generously sponsoring food for the winning team.
