Coolaney/Mullinabreena GAA Notes June 8th




Coolaney/Mullinabreena secured another two league points against neighbours Cloonacool last Monday June 1st at a scorching Nace O’Dowd Park. The mercury level peaked at a scintilating 26 degrees Celsius leaving conditions difficult for both sides. Nonetheless, the teams produced a decent affair with the home side winning out deservedly after a stern test from a good Cloonacool team. The sides meet again in two weeks time in the league and also later in August in the Championship. Final score: C/M 1.08 Cloonacool 0.6.                                                                             Team: F Brennan, S Walsh, B Kivlehan, A Walsh, C Connolly, S Marren, J McGowan, R Gallagher(1.01), P McHugh, M Conlon, D Doherty(0.1), T Sexton, S O’Brien(0.2), O Lee, K Finan(0.4). Subs: B Coleman for M Conlon, A Duggan for O Lee, W Kivlehan, A McGowan, B Finnegan, J Connolly, S Gorman, C Gorman, M Healy. We are fixed to play Eastern Harps on Friday June 12th at 8pm in Keash.


Our U-14 side defeated Coolera/Strandhill last Friday evening at Nace O’Dowd Park in the A Championship quarter final. The score finished 3.16 to 2.05. The team now meet St. Marys in the semi final fixed for Friday June 19th at 7 pm in Nace O’Dowd Park. This represents great progress for the club to be performing at the highest level in the county. We wish the team and coaches Bernie Finan and Kieran Finan the best of luck in two weeks. Panel: Keelan Gannon, Kieran Gannon, Brendan Doddy, Stephen Connolly, Eoin McDonagh, Pearse Gorman, Gavin Feely, Christopher Lee, Niall O’Dowd, Cathal Finan, Clyde Carroll, Nathan Mullen, Michael Mulvey, Edward Burke, Conor Doyle, Keith Kirrane, Fergal Burns, Ryan Mathews and Enda Gallagher.
