St Malachy's club notes

September 09, 2019

Mattie Corcoran Memorial.

St. Malachys GFC would like to invite everyone to the unveiling of a memorial plaque to the late Martin (Mattie) Corcoran on Saturday next, 14th of September at 1pm at our club grounds in Castletown Geoghegan.

Mattie was a tremendous servant to our club both as a player and as an official and fostered a great love of both Gaelic games and the Irish language in the local community throughout his life.

His children and grandchildren have continued the proud legacy that Mattie has left and they all continue to assist our club both off and on the field of play.

We hope you can attend this event and share your memories on the day of a gentleman, a character and one of the best clubmen that St. Malachys ever had.


Under 14  Championship 

Lilliput Gaels   3-14   , Moate AllWhites  3- 09
Moate were the visitors to Ballinagore on Thursday evening last and made our lads battle all the way in this tough encounter. The game was very evenly balanced in the first half and with Jack Mulligan in fine form from play and frees and Ronan McLavin bringing off some fine saves we went in at half time leading by 2-5 to 0-7. The game was won in the opening quarter of the second half where Philip Reynolds kicked over several long range points and a Peter Murphy goal gave us a twelve point lead with ten minutes left. Moate made a spirited comeback in the final five minutes when they fired in three goals but we held on for a welcome win as we strive for a semi final spot in the premier championship.

Panel: Ronan McLavin, Oisin Kiernan, Sean Jackson, Eoin Robinson, Dylan Franzoni, Killian Jackson, David Costello, Jack Gannon, Peter Murphy, Shane Corcoran, Philip Reynolds, Adam Clarke, Adam Cassidy, Andrew Dalton,Jack Mulligan, Christian Dowling, Sean Macken, Luke Robinson, Jack Maloney, Morgan Redmond, Shane King, Evan Dalton, Patrick Maloney,Cian Corcoran.
