Mohill GAA Club Notes 03/10/2018
Senior Championship – The seniors will contest the championship final with Aughawillan on Sunday October 14. Manorhamilton were obviously not on form on Saturday last in the semi and three games in a row took their toll. Nevertheless, Mohill are coming good at the right time and the pairing in the final should be very competitive. Lots of work still to be done on the field and around the parish to prepare for the greatest day in Leitrim football. We were sorry to see Eslin bow out after a great campaign but we congratulate our near neighbours Annaduff and Fenagh who will contest the Intermediate final
Intermediates – The second string strived in vain to maintain their Intermediate status on Sunday morning but Aughavas were the winners in this relegation battle in Cloone. On a positive note we saw the return of young Jordan Reynolds after a serious arm fracture and he surely made his presence felt with outstanding scores.
Ladies Final – Mohill Ladies gave a fine display of football in the Intermediate final on Sunday last and we congratulate the St Francis team who were worthy winners on the day. It was a very exciting game with two evenly matched teams but our very young team have made amazing progress in nine weeks since the same St Francis team beat us by 30 points. The Ladies Club thank Gary and Shane Canning, Darragh Gordon and Caillin Canning for looking after the team all year. Good days ahead le cúnamh Dé
Under 15 – TheU15s came up against tough opposition in Allen Gaels, who deservedly ran out winners by a margin of 3-12 to 0-9. Mohill missed numerous opportunities in the first half and it was Allen Gaels who drove on in the second half. This was our first defeat of the year at this age grade and over the next two weeks they will hope to put it right. The team and scorers was, L Bohan, D Scott, F Cassells, G Reynolds, B Donohue, D Duignan, T McNabola, C Quinn, C Keegan 0-1, K Curran 0-1, S Bohan 0-2, A McCrann 0-2, J Rowley, C Macklin, M Murphy 0-2. Subs, E Duignan, B David, B Logan, J Foy, A Lubey, C Donohue, A McGuinness, A McCrann.
Fundraising – Fundraising is the bad F word at the moment but it is essential to keep the club running. It is difficult to survive without calling on the generosity of the people and our sponsors and we are forever indebted to Lough Rynn Castle and their Manager Ciaran Reidy for their continued sponsorship over the last few very successful years. The club are at present holding a monster draw with tickets selling at €20, First Prize is €3000, Second Prize €1000 plus numerous other prizes. Be generous when we call to your door, the club is doing a great job for your children and the whole community.
Walking Track – On Sat. Oct 13 the new Walking track around the pitch will be officially opened by ‘Ireland’s Fittest Family’, The Beirnes. International athlete Eanna Madden will also attend. Time to be arranged. More details next week.
