Rathcline Club Notes 17th April 2017

posted 18 Apr 2017, 09:56 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

All County League

Saturday evening last was our second game in the Division 2 league and our first home game when we welcomed Sean Connolly’s to Clonbonny.

We had a great first half turning over at half time with a 6point lead 0-11 to 0-5. The second half was a back to the wall half where we struggled to maintain Connolly’s comeback. As we approached full time we were hanging on to a 3-point lead when Connolly’s pounced for a goal to level the game. One final attack should the determination of the team when they went down the field and Liam Connerton scored from a free to leave us 1 point victors.

Well done to the panel and management and it is great to have two victories in the first two games.

Saturday evening next, we travel to Ballybrien to play Ballymore in the third round and we look forward to a good number travelling to support.

Get Well

We wish Conor Mc Grath a speedy recover as he recovers from surgery following an injury sustained in the game on Saturday evening last.


Monday night last the 50/50 took place in the Yacht Bar. The winning pool amounted to €388 and the winner was Gerry O’Donnell, Curraghroe. The club says thank you for your continued support.

The trip to Punchestown is a great day out for Longford Football. This year we hope that we can gain support from all local racing aficionados and those interested in a great social day out to the Annual Punchestown Festival on Wednesday 26th April 2017 in support of Longford GAA. Rathcline will be entering its usual table and we are looking for support and we hope that we can fill 2 tables -20 people.  Anyone interested should contact Liam Connerton, Albert Cooney, Gerard Farrell or Cathal Chapman.
