St Malachys GAA club notes

August 07, 2018


On Sunday last, we played our second round of the IFC against Caulry. Unfortunately, we didn't leave the pitch with the 2 points we wanted for the championship table. It was a draw game at 62 minutes on the board when Caulry found the blackspot and put the ball over the bar, leaving them a point ahead with seconds left to play. We fought hard to come back from being 7 points down at one stage, and the dedication of the players really showed in coming back into the game. Final score: Malachys 2-06 Caulry 1-10. Team: D.Sheehan, J.Gallagher, L.Varley, E.Quinn, D.McDermott, S.Clavin(0-01) , J.Clarke, A.Clarke(0-01), J.Bermingham, C.O'Brien, D.Ruane (0-02), N.O'Brien (1-0), N.Kirby, A.Mangan (1-02), R.Whelan. Subs E.OgClarke, E.Mullarkey, S.Clarke, L.Cassidy, D.Clarke, C.Lynch, P.O'Suillivan, P.Kane, D.Kiernan, R.Burge, A.Gavigan, N.Mckenna (inj.)


The winning numbers this week were: 1,3,8,23. There was no winner. Five people had 3 numbers. Marcella Dunne, Pat Clarke, Mandy Jackson, Margaret Hackett and Bernie Corcoran. Promotor prize went to Dermot Garvin. Next week's draw is €9600 in Drakes.

Underage - Lilliput Gaels

The under 14's played Kilbeggan on Thursday night last, coming back from being 7 points down at half time to win 2-06 to 2-10. Well done to all involved.

Unfortunately, our under 12 side were not as lucky against Miltownpass, despite a great comeback in the second half.
