Bornacoola GAA Club Notes 03/10/2018
Senior Championship – After a period of 21 years in the senior ranks our team lost their senior status on Sunday morning last when Dromahair proved the superior team in the senior relegation final in Drumshanbo. The early exchanges pointed to a close encounter and Dromahair held a 0-5 to 0-4 half time lead. Two goals, including a penalty, in the last ten minutes proved to be the key scores that saw the North Leitrim men win on a final score line of 2-10 to 0-6 . Team was Daniel Farrell, Damian McGuinness, Jason Conroy, Brian Duffy, Sean McKeon, Conor McCauley (0-0-1) , Mervyn Howard (0-1), Anthony Mulligan (0-1), Gary McCloskey, Cian Mallon, Philip Howard, Ronan Mulligan, Ollie Vaughan, Damian Moran (0-3), Brian Conroy, Subs used were Michael Duignan and Allan Croghan. The journey in the senior championship since 1997 has been a good one with many special memories including county final appearances in 2005 and 2008 and many players have been great loyal servants to the club during this time. A special thanks to our manager Morgan Shanley and selectors Jonathan Duffy and Gary McCloskey for all their work with this team during the year. It is appreciated.
September Club Draw – The September club draw took place on Saturday night in the Copper Still bar, Dromod . The winners were €100 Mary Callaghan Mallon, €20 each to Sean Farrell – Dromard, Jim Busher, Drumsna, Orla McGuinness, Declan Bohan and Denise Busher, Drumsna.
Spin the Wheel – Thanks to everyone who has supported our “Spin the Wheel” fundraiser to date and the second lucky person who will spin the wheel on Sunday the 28th of October was drawn on Saturday night. Well done to young Senan Woods, Clooncolry, Dromod who had the lucky ticket. The third draw will take place on Saturday the 13th of October so there are lots of opportunity to be one of the four winners to spin the wheel.
Sympathy – Our deepest sympathies are extended to the O’Beirne family, Clooncolry, Dromod on the sad passing of Bernie’s mother, Margaret Lennon, Doory, Ballymahon last week. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sí.
