Monday 2.05 am.
The big games for the club this week begin this evening Monday with the trip of the U 16s’ to Ballintubber to play St. Croan’s at 7.30. Any support would be very much appreciated. The seniors have a difficult task on Friday evening when hey travel to Kiltoom to take on St. Brigid’s in the Abbey Hotel Division One League.
The Club will host the Keenan Cup Final between Tulsk and Castlerea St. Kevin's in the Abbey Park on Tuesday next 9th August at 7pm.
Our U14s are awaiting the commencement of the Garda Cup competition.
The Cooney Motors/ Cooney's Centra team lost to a stronger Clan na Gael outfit in the Conty Junior ‘A’ Championship on Friday evening last in Boyle. Special thanks to Kathleen who organised the catering at short notice in Friday evening. They will meet the same opposition on this Wednesday evening in the Tansey Cup at 8.15pm in the Abbey Park.
The McGovern Directional Drilling team will resume their O'Rourke Cup campaign on this Friday when they will make the long journey to Kltoom to take on St Brigid’s at 8pm.
Thanks to all who purchased full tickets or shared tickets for the upcoming County Board Draw and thus enabled the Club to achieve its sales quota. Hopefully some of the prizes wil come our way.
There will be a very important meeting of the Club on this Thursday night in the Clubroom at 8.30pm to advance the preparations for the Club's ambitious fundraising project-"The Road to Croker" when the Club will walk to Dublin on the week leading up to the All Ireland Football Final. All members of the Senior and Minor Club and the Ladies Club are asked to attend as this is a joint effort involving the officials and players from all three sections of the Club.
Congratulations to Donal, Enda and Tadhg and the entire Roscommon minor panel and managementon their excellent victory over Armagh in Croke Park on Saturday. Comiserations to Sean and the Roscommon senior team and management who bowed out of this year's championship with a brave performance against Tyronee. Hopefully they will build on the sound foundation that has now been established.
(ntdwgaa; I believe there were a number of thefts from cars in the Forest Park over the week end so if going there of having friends go there be vigilant and alert the Gardai if you see something obviously amiss. It is a holiday spoiler for visitors. T.C.)
Is it Ml. Gilmartin who is the pro for the golf club? Nice one in the golf notes this week. "The prize for the longest drive on Ml. Keville's Captain's day went to Gerry Lavery who drove all the way from Kerry".It was great to see Mayo upset the odds with their fine win over Cork. Another bad call in the disallowed Kildare goal. I was pleased to catch up with Justin McCormack, in Maye's bar in Dorset St. Dublin on Sunday before the big game. Justin is making a name for himself in team management in the capital as manager of St. Brendan's who are nicknamed 'The Dark Force'. A touch of Star Wars Jedi/ Darth (?) Vador about that. The clampers were out in force for GAA supporters around Croke Park on Saturday afternoon].
