Senior League Match

Well done to the lads on a fantastic victory on Saturday evening against Glencar Manor in the pairc, the lads put in a good display and were deserving winners with the final score 2:13 to 0:12, the result leaves the lads in second place in the league one point behind Mohill on 11 points. Next up for the lads is an away match on Saturday at 19:00 against Gortletteragh.

 

Division 4 

Aughavas conceded the match that was due to be played on Sunday, this puts our lads in to a play off match with Aughawillan this Sunday to be played at 12:00 in Fenagh, your support would be greatly appreciated.

 

John West Feile

The Connacht Feile started on Friday in the Pairc with our MacDiarmada Gaels boys meeting the team we were hosting JK Brackens from Tipperary and our girls team meeting  Erin’s Own Castlecomer from Kilkenny.

The lads were first in action at home playing Aughrim and Mohill on Friday, winning against Aughrim but losing to Mohill, this left us with a chance to progress to the quarterfinals on Saturday morning with a victory against JK Brackens, the lads won and we headed to Sligo for a quarterfinal match in the cup competition which we were unfortunate to lose against Patrick Rankins Armagh with the final score 3:01 to 0:08.

Our girls team played their opening matches in Mohill on Friday beating Mohill and losing to eventual all Ireland winners. Two mile house, before they returned to meet up with Erin’s Own who they defeated on Saturday to earn a place in the quarterfinals where they played and unfortunately lost to St. Dominic’s.

The Feile experience despite the losses was fantastic for both our teams and their players and it was an experience we are sure they will not forget.

It was also a fantastic experience for everyone in the Ballinamore and Kiltubrid clubs who helped make it such a special occasion for our own and all the visiting teams to Ballinamore, the welcome all the teams were given was second to none and certainly no one went away hungry with over 750 cups of tea and coffees served with a mountain of baked goods, sandwiches, pizza, chips and with over 400 burgers and 200 sausages prepared and served at Saturday nights BBQ it was a sight to behold.

It was great to host our new friends J.K.Brackens GAA and Erins Own Gaa, our girls and our MacDiarmada Gaels lads May have not reached the finals but they certainly made lasting memories and friends. The visiting teams should be proud also, again they didn’t make the final but two finer groups of players you would not meet anywhere they were a credit to their clubs, mentors and Families and conducted themselves so well over the weekend..

Special thanks to all our sponsors who helped us make the weekend such a success Micheal Scollan Meats, Donohoes Supervalu Ballinamore, Tesco Ballinamore, David McBrien’s Family Butchers, Fresh Today Extra, Priors @ High St and Gallogly Catering. Special thanks also to all the people that helped over the weekend cooking, cleaning, serving, the mentors and trainers who have helped the players prepare over the last months and of course all the host families we couldn’t have done it without ye !!!
