Rosemount GAA notes

July 09, 2018

Gaa: With promotion to Div 4 of the league already secured, our junior team travelled to TEG Cusack Park Mullingar last Friday evening to take on Shandonagh in the Div 5 league final. It was a perfect evening for football and both sets of supporters were treated to a very enjoyable game with both teams playing an attractive style of play. Shandonagh started the brightest and put 1.04 on the scoreboard in the opening few minutes. Our lads grew more into the game, and some well taken scores from David Fox, Lorcan Daly, Padraig Geoghegan , Shane Tone , and Richie O'Brien got us back in the game. We went in at half time level, and with it all to play for. In the second half our lads began to dominate, our defense was brilliant throughout, our midfielders ran themselves to a standstill, and our forwards were working very well as a unit. A penalty and a point from play by Ben Cox got us in the lead. From there we kicked on and finished strong with scores from David Fox, Lorcan Daly and Cathal Daly to give us the win by six points. After the game the cup was presented to our team captain Paidi Keenan. The final score was Rosemount 1.20 to Shandonagh's 2.11. Well done lads on a great win, and league campaign. 

Walking track lights in the park are now off for the summer months. Only those with membership paid are permitted and insured to use the walking track. 

Well done to Emma Kelly who lined out for Westmeath Ladies in the Leinster Football  Final recently against Dublin. A fantastic achievement, well done Emma.
