Coolaney/Mullinabreena GAA Notes June 22nd





Our intermediate side played out a draw with neighbours Cloonacool at Nace O’Dowd Park last Sunday afternoon. A goal down at the break, the home side showed good resolve in the second period by clawing back the lead and found the equaliser through wing back John McGowan with a punched point. Team: F Brennan, Shane Kivlehan, Brendan Coleman, S Walsh, C Connolly, A Walsh, J McGowan(0.1), S O’Brien(0.1), P McHugh, A McGowan, D Doherty(0.1), T Sexton, E Kivlehan, K Finan(0.6), W Kivlehan. Subs: O Lee for A McGowan, M Conlon(0.2) for W Kivlehan, J Connolly, K Duffy. The fixture against Drumcliffe was postponed last week and will be rescheduled. The next game is against Eastern harps on Thursday evening at 8pm in Nace O’Dowd Park.




Pride of place this week goes to our U-12 team as they clinched the B Shield championship in great style at Markievicz park. They defeated St. Johns by eight points to two in the semi final and overcame Geevagh in the final by twelve points to ten. Well done to all the players and coaches Eamon Gorman and Gerry Connolly for all the effort throughout the year. This is a great achievement and further evidence of the strides that the club is making at underage level. Panel: Shane Gormally, Daniel Mullen, John Gilmartin, Barry Gorman, Kieran Tuohy, Niall Haran, Conor Haran, Enda Gallagher, Cathal Finan, Clyde Carroll, Nathan Mullen, Brendan Connolly, Oran Mulvey,  Paul Feely, Eamon Gorman, David Ruttledge.­ ­
