Fr McWey Finals are a big success

November 8, 2018

The Annual Fr McWey Parish League drew to a close on Sunday 11th Sept with the finals day. Although the weather threatened to play havoc with the day we were fortunate to escape with just a small shower during the afternoon.


The Fr McWey Parish Football League is a wonderful summer league for our U8 & U10 boys and girls. The games are small sided giving everyone an opportunity to be involved in the game. Over the ten week period of the league we had over 120 children involved in the league which is a wonderful stepping stone for the children into competitive Gaelic Football.


The U8’s were first up and three wonderful games were played by all the teams involved, however the A final between Fr Kearns and Daniel O’Connell’s teams was the highlight of the day. The teams were tied on 3 points each at full time and a further period of extra time resulted in one point each. As they could not be separated both teams shared the cup and their respective captains received the Clarence Gray Memorial Cup from Mrs Sheila Donegan, a niece of Clarence Gray.


The results in the U8 Finals were


A Final


Fr Kearns 0-4 Daniel O’Connell 0-04


B Final


Wolfe Tones 0-1 Padraig Pearse 0-4


C Final


Col Perry 0-6 Thomas Davis 0-1


The U10s final then took place and again some excellent displays of football were on show from all six teams in the finals.  Following the games the U10’s were presented with their medals, however before this took place Garrett Reilly on behalf of  Edenderry GAA thanked all the players and their parents for their attendance at the league over the previous 10 weeks. He thanked the parents who had helped in any way with marking the pitch, refereeing and coaching the teams. All of the players then gave their parents a round of applause. Each player came forward to accept their medal and refreshments. The A final winners were the last team to come up and receive the cup along with their medals.


The results of the U10 Finals were:


A Final


Padraig Pearse 0-6 Wolfe Tones 0-04


B Final


Thomas Davis 0-3 Daniel O’Connell 0-4


C Final


Col Perry 0-6 Fr Kearns 0-2



Edenderry GAA wish to thank everyone for helping with the organisation of the Fr McWey League throughout the summer in particular all the players who turned up each week to display their talent and skill.
