SENIOR FOOTBALL: With most pitches saturated from the wettest winter on record, the heavy rain on late Saturday afternoon (13th Feb) really put the kaibosh on our Town League (R1) game going ahead at the Mitchels pitch later that evening.
So it’s now in the lap of the gods as to when any game will be played in the immediate future. With the Mitchels game to be rescheduled, our round 2 Town League game, against Na Gaeil is due to go ahead in Caherslee on next Sunday (21st Feb) at 12noon.Then we have away games against Ballymac (28th Feb) and Kerins O’Rahillys (13th March). The top two teams qualify for the Final, on a date to be confirmed.
BEST OF LUCK: to David Mannix and his DCU team as they take on UUJ in the Sigerson Cup semi final in Belfast on this Friday afternoon (19th Feb) at 3pm. In the other semi final UCD will play UL.
MINOR FOOTBALL: Like our Seniors, our Minors also had their Town League (R3) game against Ballymac postponed, also as a result of unplayable pitches – this after our round 2 game (against Na Gaeil) was postponed from the previous weekend.
Round 1 of the Co. League is scheduled for next Saturday (20th Feb). This game, against Firies, has now been switched to Farranfore, commencing at 4pm.
Our remaining games are away in rounds 2 and 3 – against Listowel (5th March) and Gneeveguilla (12th March).
In the two closing rounds of the competition we are at home – against Kerins O’Rahillys (on Easter Saturday, 26th March) with the 5th and final round, six days later, against Dr. Crokes (Friday, 1st April).
CONGRATULATIONS: to former Club Footballer, Don Shanahan and his wife Karan on the birth, last weekend, of a baby girl named Lucy – a grand daughter for Ted & Mary Shanahan and James & Assumpta O’Driscoll.
