Allen Gaels GAA Club Notes 03/10/2018
St. Francis Ladies – Congratulations to the ladies who won a thrilling Intermediate Final in Ballinamore on Sunday with a 2-12 to 3-07 win over Mohill. Mairead McCawley struck an early goal to settle the nerves and we were on top for the early stages but Mohill staged a recovery and led by 5 points at one point but the girls showed great heart and determination and a second-half goal from Ailish Cornyn put us on the road to victory. Great credit goes to both teams and thank you to all the supporters who turned out to cheer the girls home. Well done to Paul, Gareth and the squad on a great achievement.
Division 2 Playoff – We play Dromahair in the long-awaited league playoff in Drumkeerin this Saturday at 4pm. As this will decide promotion to Division 1 for the coming season it’s a hugely important game so please turn out to support the lads. Good luck to Sean, Angus, Paddy & the team.
Minor Ladies – The ladies face St. Mary’s in the final which may be played this weekend so please watch out for the fixtures. Best of luck to Ciara, Dermot, Ann and the girls.
U-15’s – The U-15’s had a good win over Mohill in Ballinaglera on Sunday morning on a scoreline of 3-13 to 0-09.

We play Leitrim Gaels at home on Saturday morning at 12noon so good luck to Farrell, Angus and the team.
