Rathcline GAA – Club Notes – Sunday 11th August 2013

posted 11 Aug 2013, 15:28 by Unknown user

Championship 2013 – Our Senior team were held to a disappointing draw against Carrickedmond in the second round of the championship in Leo Casey Park on Sunday afternoon last. This is a second draw result in as many games and the club need to win at all cost in the third and final group game against St. Patricks Ardagh on Sunday evening next. The game has been provisionally set for Devine Park in Mostrim at 7.30pm but keep an eye on fixtures/website for more details.

Minor Championship – Pride of the parish lies with our Minor team this week with a fantastic win over St. Colmcilles in the Championship semi final last Monday evening in Dunbeggan. In what was surely one of the games of the year, Western Gaels progressed to the final by beating the North Longford men after extra time in a historic victory for the club. It has been 17 years since the last Rathcline team contested a championship final; the last of which was managed by Joe O’ Brien. This time round Kevin Hanley is the man in charge and guided his young team to peak in the exact right time of the season. This has been a long term project for Kevin with training starting last October. Hundreds of hours of work has gone into this setup and it is fantastic to see the rewards coming to the fore. The final is scheduled for Thursday evening coming against our good neighbours Southern Gaels. Venue and time has yet to be confirmed but keep an eye on Fixtures, Club Website and Facebook for more details. We really hope that the whole parish will come out and support the lads this week in their bid to land a historic title for the club. Well done to all concerned.

Rathcline Ladies – The second round of the Championship is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 21st August when the girls take on Mostrim. A win will guarantee a championship final spot for the team. Given that the evenings are beginning to close in, the likelihood is that the game will be scheduled for Cashel under lights at 8:30pm. Confirmation of this game will be on next week’s notes and we wish the team well in their preparations for the big game.

Club Rathcline Lotto Draw - Preparations are ongoing for Phase 2 of the Lotto campaign and it is hoped to have the fundraiser rolled out in the next couple of weeks. Many thanks to all our patrons who participated in the last lotto and we look forward to your support for Phase 2.

Shannon Gaels – Coaching for U6, U8, U10 and U12 will continue in Clonbonny on Friday in Clonbonny from 7pm to 8pm as normal.

U16 – The first round of the championship is due to take place on Thursday 22nd August with an away match to St. Colmcilles. Rounds 2 & 3 will be followed on the subsequent weeks with games versus Clonguish Og and Northern Gaels respectively. Training with the Minor team this week continues per the normal routine.
