Rathcline GAA – Club Notes – Sunday 19th May 2013

posted 19 May 2013, 12:49 by Unknown user

Reserve League 2 – We are now in the business end of this competition with a home semi final against St. Columbas next weekend on Saturday 25th May in Clonbonny at 7pm. This is a magnificent achievement for Joe Rooney and his team in achieving four consecutive semi final spots in as many years.  This year has been the hardest of all with diminished numbers to pick from as well as contending with an injury stricken panel throughout the campaign. We hope that as many supporters, members and parishioners will come out on Saturday to support the team in their bid to claim a place in the final against the winners of Ballymahon and St. Mary’s Granard.

Club Rathcline Lotto Draw - The Jackpot total of €800 was not won this weekend with numbers drawn as follows: 3, 6, 10, 30, 37, and 45. Congratulations to our four €25 winners this week as follows: (1) Tom Kelly – Cloonadra, Ballyleague (2) Paula Kenny - Fermoyle (3) Jim Mulvihill – Newtowncashel (4) John L Farrell – Rathcline. Next week’s Jackpot will €900.

Senior League – Commiserations to our senior football team who suffered their second defeat of the year to the hands of Mostrim in Clonbonny on Friday night last. Final score: Rathcline 2-07, Mostrim 2-12. Most people would agree that it was a case of Rathcline throwing away two points and not pushing on while we had the ascendency in the critical point in the second half of the match. The result puts Rathcline in mid table with a game in hand. There is now a two week break before Round 4 of the League. Rathcline play away to Fr. Manning Gaels on Friday 31st May in Monaduff at 8pm. This is followed by a quick turnaround time to play Dromard on the following Bank holiday Monday on 3rd June at 2:30pm. Photographs and match report can be seen on the Club website: www.rathcline.gaa.ie or on Facebook page. We would also like to wish a speedy recovery to Michael Hanley who sustained a very heavy knock during the match.

Sympathies – The Club would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Cullen Family, Rathcline Road on the passing of Chris’s sister – Ann Whelan on Wednesday last 15th May. Funeral mass took place in Clonegal in Co Carlow on Friday last.

Extra vigilance needed – Due to the increased occurrences of robberies throughout the country, especially at GAA Clubs, we are asking all our patrons be extra careful in terms of leaving valuables in cars in the parking area during matches / training sessions.

Congratulations to Fermoyle National School 5 aside soccer team on reaching the All Ireland final next Saturday afternoon in the Aviva stadium. The team qualified through the group stage competition which was recently held in Navan. The team is managed by Denis Connerton and we wish all involved the very best of luck on Saturday.
