Scor Na nOg

A great weekend was capped off at The Downs on Sunday when St. Joseph's retained the Scor na nog Set Dancing crown after a masterful display. Having reached the All Ireland Final last year, certainly hopes were high but Westmeath titles are hard won and today was no exception. We claimed both the Moira Barden cup and Sarah Barden award for winning the Set. The girls will now travel to Oldcastle next Sunday for the provincial semi-final.
Our Novelty Act team didn't get the nod on the day but were hugely impressive in the competition and must have been very close in what was a very strong contest. They did themselves and the club proud and we would like to thank everyone who has represented our club in all Scor Na nOg contests in 2019.


St Joseph’s Ladies Minor Champions 2019


The final day of November was the last outing for the year and what a way to finish a long and successful  year for the club with a victory in the Minor “C” Championship final over a strong Clan Gael’s. We came out of the hat first to claim home advantage and we set about our task right from the opening whistle and within the first 5 minutes we had registered two unanswered goals for Karen Keegan and Roisin Kealy. Clan Gael’s opened their account in the 6th minute with a well taken free. We responded with another goal, this time from a penalty spot, Roisin Kealy took the kick and duly delivered with an emphatic finish. Our purple patch continued with another goal from Laura Conlon who netted the fourth of the first half. We traded points with our opponents with Erin Pettit and Sinead Robbins getting on the score sheet but as we knew from previous encounters, Clan Gaels were not going to go down without a fight and just before half time they had the ball in the net to finish the half on a score line of St Joseph’s Ladies: 4-2(14) Clan Gaels: 1-5(8)


The girls knew they had to keep the pressure on in the second half if they wanted to take the prize on offer. Erin Pettit opened the scoring in the 3rd minute with a well taken goal followed by an unanswered 1-02 from Roisin Kealy. Clan Gaels opened their second half account in the 13th minute with a pointed free. Points from Karen Keegan which included a stunning long-range free conversion and four super points from play from Sinead Robbins kept the scoreboard moving in the right direction. Our final goal of the game came from the very industrious Lauren McDonnell. The final whistle blew to great cheers and excitement from the home team and the assembled crowd, a good job, well done!  Final scoreline was St Joseph’s Ladies: 7-9 (30) Clan Gaels: 1-6 (9)

A big thank you to the management team of Pat Conway, Pat McCormack and Noel Robbins.
