Scealta na Seachtaine

November 8, 2018

Scor:Yes, next Saturday is the big day with the All Ireland Scór Finals in Killarney. An All Ireland Scór Finals without Leitrim would be like All Ireland Football finals without Kerry. By the same token, any year Seán O’Heslins are not in the All Ireland Novelty Act, people would be wondering, “where are Seán O’Heslins”?

Fixtures:Our first senior league game is on Saturday when we play Fenagh in Fenagh at 6.30. We would like to see good support at the game. So far in the Shield we have won three of the four games and lost by a point to Dromahair, all games played without some of our more experienced players. With the league campaign starting we would appreciate more support,
Comhbhron:The Sean O’Heslin’s Ladies wish to extend their sympathy to Ray O’Connor and Family on the death of Ray’s mother last week
Seniors Beat Aughavas:Our seniors had their third win of the shield and their most comprehensive to date when they beat Aughavas on Saturday. Again they were forced to field a fairly inexperienced team due to injuries etc but they put in a great display especially in the second half. Aughavas led at half time by 0-6 to 0-4 but they were playing with a very strong breeze. Anton Arandelovic, Sean Murray, Wayne McKeon and Freddie Walsh got the first half points.
Liam Ferguson got our first second-half point, and then Wayne McKeon fisted a point. James McWeeney got another and then particularly good points followed from Wayne, Anton and James McWeeney. Aughavas still had the ability to get points but the score that settled it was a good move from the left which saw Wayne McKeon pass across the goal to the unmarked Enda Quinn who made no mistake in fisting it to the net.  Seán Murray quickly followed with a superb finish to the back of the net and that was that. It finished O’Heslins 2-12 Aughavas 0-9.
U14s Beat St Marys: The under 14s had a great start to their league campaign with a good win over St Mary’s on Friday. They led well at half time with Dean McGovern getting two goals. Carrick came back into it more in the second half but a great goal from Abdul Ahmed really finished it. The Ballinamore lads won by 4-8 to 2-8 at the finish. Their next game is on Friday in the Park at 7.00 against Drumkeerin
Boys School Make Progress: The boy’s school have played three games in the Schools competition winning two of them. They beat Carrigallen in their first game by 2-9 to 2-6. The beat Carrick on Shannon by 4-12 to 1-2 and last Monday they played Mohill and Mohill won by 4-6 to 1-5. The team last Monday was: Fergal Curran, Brian Leyden, Daire McNiffe, Niall McGovern, Conor Moran, Brian Banks, Evan Moran, Nathan Gallagher, Keelan McHugh, Luke Murphy, Daire McGovern, Donal Feely, Patrick Connaughton, Billy Williams, Ronan Maxwell. Subs: Conor Maxwell, Denis Appleby, Michael Denn, Peter Reynolds, Oisín McCaffrey, Dara Reynolds, Daragh Murphy, Ryan Doyle
Girls Beat Drumshanbo:Ballinamore girl’s primary school played Drumshanbo NS in Ballinamore on 17 April. Drumshanbo got the first point but that was it for a good while. The Ballinamore girls played very well in the first half with lots of scores from Niamh Flynn and Laura Creaven who worked very well together. The backs were brilliant at defending and gave very little chances to the Drumshanbo side. By the end of the first half the Ballinamore girls knew they were walking away with this game. Drumshanbo put up a great battle but at the end the final score was Ballinamore 5-13 Drumshanbo 1-6. Ballinamore panel: Bláithín Sharpley, Aoibheann Flynn, Sarah-Beth Reilly, Breda Began, Méabh Gleeson, Ellen Wrynn, Siobhán McTague, Niamh Flynn, Laura Creaven, Róisín McHugh, Eilís O’Dowd. Subs: Leanne Flynn, Aoibheann Boyle, Éadaoin McGourty, Niamh McGourty, Lisa Maguire, Rachel Creamer, Ciara Flynn, Lea Melaney, Ruth McNiffe.
Night At Dogs: For the past few years we have had a Race Night on the eve of the first round of the Connacht Championship. This year we will have the same event but with different animals running. Some thought it would be Camel Races, but no it is for Dogs. Yes, our “Night at the Dogs” is in Saturday 14 June in Priors. Tickets are out to buy a Dog at €10 each, so make sure to have a dog in the race.
