  • The Gaels U21 team advanced to the semi-final of the A Championship with an impressive 2-18 to 0-9 win over Curry last Sunday. We go through on points difference with all three teams finishing level. The Gaels had given a disappointing display on Friday night losing out to St Molaise Gaels on a scoreline of 1-12 to 1-9 which led to them having to win the Curry game by five points to qualify. A different Gaels turned up on Sunday and brought a greater intensity to the opening fifteen minutes racing into a nine point lead with Sean Carroll scoring an impressive goal mid way through the half. Curry responded well scoring three points in a row to finish the half strongly. The Gaels however took control in the second half and after five minutes they never looked like losing the game with ten players getting on the scoresheet. The team was: Daniel Lyons, Alan Kelly, Evan Lyons, Ben Tuohy, Enda O'Connell, Karl McKenna, Patrick Benson (0-1), James Carroll, Dillon McDermott, Sean Carroll (2-0), Shane Deignan (0-1), Daire Kearns (0-1), Darragh Hailstones (0-8), Dylan Willis (0-1), Seamus Hailstones (0-3).

  • We made our exit from the Connacht Intermediate Championship after a disappointing performance against Fuerty (Roscommon) on Sunday in the semi-final. The Gaels never got going and unlike in previous games were lethargic in the first half and never got up to the heights of previous games. A much more determined Gaels emerged in the second half with a significant improvement in performance. They needed early goals to get back in the game, however these never materialised with Fuerty running out deserving winners on a scoreline of 2-12 to 0-6. Thanks to the team and management of John McPartland, Gerry Monaghan, Seamus Cawley and Hilary Lyons for their work this year in what was our most successful season for many years, consolidation of our position in the Division 1 League and winners of the Intermediate Championship. With such a young emerging team, today was not the end, but the beginning. The team was: Donal Tuohy, Ben Tuohy, Paul Higgins (C), Evan Lyons, Keith McMorrow, Karl McKenna, Declan Willis, Joe Henry, Dillon McDermott, James Carroll, Frank Quinn, Brian Boyd, Darragh Hailstones, David Quinn, Shane Deignan. Subs: Dylan Willis for D Hailstones, Michael Kilkenny for D McDermott, Seamus Hailstones for B Boyd, Eoin Carroll for J Carroll, Daire Kearns for F Quinn.

    Thanks to Owenmore Gaels GAA Club for their excellent organisation and presentation of their impressive facilities for the game.

  • The Gaels advanced to the Connacht Intermediate Championship semi-final with a narrow win over Fenagh St Caillins (Leitrim) last weekend. This proved to be a difficult challenge for the Gaels having just played the County final replay last Sunday, however despite tiring legs the Gaels clawed back a second half deficit to win by one. Playing against a strong breeze in the first half the Gaels were well on top for most of the half, however a late penalty and a strong finish from Fenagh saw the Gaels behind by two at half time. In the second half Fenagh consolidated their lead and were six points up mid-way through the half but the never say die attitude of the Gaels, which has been evident on many occasions this year ensured that the Gaels dug deep and clawed the deficit back to two points as the game entered injury time. It was again substitute Dylan Willis, the hero of the county final who stepped up and showing remarkable skill scored a goal to put the Gaels one up with three minutes remaining and despite heavy legs the Gaels held on to record our first win in Connacht. Next up is Roscommon champions Fuerty in the Connacht semi-final next weekend. The team was: Donal Tuohy, Declan Willis, Paul Higgins, Keith McMorrow, Ciaran O'Connor, Karl McKenna, Evan Lyons, Joe Henry, Dillon McDermott, James Carroll, Frank Quinn, Brian Boyd, David Quinn (0-7), Shane Deignan (1-2), Darragh Hailstones (0-1). Subs: Seamus Hailstones for C O'Connor (inj), Dylan Willis (1-1) for B Boyd, Joe Quinn for D Hailstones.  

    There was no winner of the lotto draw last weekend. The numbers drawn were 1, 5, 9, 30. There was one match 3 winner, Mary Quinn while Eamon McMunn won the house draw. The next draw is on Saturday 17th in Des McDonaghs with the jackpot at €5,000.

  • It has been a long time coming but it was worth the wait when the Gaels lifted the Intermediate Championship beating Curry in the replay on a scoreline of 1-13 to 1-10 in Bunninadden last Sunday. The Gaels got off to a blistering start racing into a five point lead at half time, however a different Curry emerged in the second half and chipped away at the Gaels lead only to go one up with five minutes remaining, The Gaels however confounded the critics and dug deep as they have done on so many occasions this year to level the game and it was minor star Dylan Willis who had the final say with a goal in the closing stages to give the Gaels a deserved victory and our third Intermediate Championship. The team was: Donal Tuohy, Declan Willis, Evan Lyons, Keith McMorrow, Karl McKenna, Paul Higgins (C), Andrew Flynn, Dillon McDermott, Joe Henry, Shane Deignan (0-1), Brian Boyd (0-2), James Carroll, Darragh Hailstones, Frank Quinn (0-1), David Quinn (0-9). Subs used: Ciaran O'Connor for J Carroll, Seamus Hailstones for S Deignan, Dylan Willis (1-0) for D Hailstones.  Well done to the team and management John McPartland, Gerry Monaghan, Seamus Cawley and Hilary Lyons.

We now take on Fenagh-St Caillins from Leitrim next Saturday at 2PM in Enniscrone in the Connacht Championship.

  • The Senior team will have to do it all again next weekend after they drew with Curry in the Intermediate Championship Final last Sunday.

    It was disappointment for the Senior Ladies in Cloonacool as they lost the Junior Championship final to Curry on a scoreline of 3-11 to 1-10. The Gaels gave a solid first half performance and led by four at the interval but playing against a strong breeze in the second half the Gaels never hit form with second half goals from Curry proving decisive.

  • It was a disappointing weekend with both minor teams making their exit from the Championship.

    First up was the Minor Girls who lost 3-15 to 0-6 against Galway Champions, Kilkerrin/Clonberne in the quarter final of the A Connaught Championship. The Girls were well in the game in the first half, however a stronger Kilkerrin/Clonberne slowly pulled away and we were left with a mountain to climb in the second half. The Girls however never gave up and went down fighting encouraged on by the large vocal Gaels contingent who had travelled to support the team. Thanks to the team for all their work this year and to managers Fiona Lyons, Michelle Tuohy and Aoife O'Connor for their work with the team. The team was: Meabh McDermott (C), Lisa O'Callaghan (Amy Healy), Aoife Morrisroe, Roisin Durey (Ellie McDermott), Isobel Clarke, Jade Lyons, Kate Brady, Eala McDermott (0-1), Louise Merrick, Rachel Boyd (0-3), Erin Mullaney (0-1), Roisin Kearns, Makayla McLoughlin (0-1), Mairead Tuohy (Chloe McTiernan), Jane Benson (Andie Brady). Kate Brehony, Nadine Hargadon.

    The Minor boys had a heartbreaking loss to St Molaise Gaels in the Minor A Championship final. Having been in control of the game after clawing back a six point deficit in the second half, the Gaels went two points ahead in the closing stages and while they had chances to extend the lead, it was St Molaise Gaels who finished strongly scoring a goal in injury time to snatch victory on a final scoreline of 5-7 to 4-11. This has been a great year for the minor team and it was disappointing to lose in this way and only the team's second loss in both league and championship. Well done to the team who gave it all and to the management of Glen McDermott, Eugene Carroll, Hilary Lyons and Paul Higgins. The team was:  Daniel Lyons, Dylan Burke (0-2), Evan Lyons, Bryan Johnston, Seamus Hailstones (0-1), Sean Carroll, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Dillion McDermott, James Carroll (0-1) Michael Barry, Patrick Benson, Aaron McKenna, Lee Deignan (0-1) Dylan Willis (4-0), Shane Deignan (1-2). Subs: Brendan Hailstones, Adrian Benson, Christian Monaghan, Conor Kearns.

    While today was disappointing for both minor teams, we should reflect on their achievements over the last four years as most of these players move to adult football. Both of these teams represented Sligo at Feile in 2014, with the Girls winning the Feile All Ireland Shield while in the same year both teams won their respective U14 A Championships on the same memorable day in Collooney. They then went on to win many other titles with many of them representing Sligo at various levels and this year the Girls won the A Championship and the boys won the A League to round off a very successful underage career.  They have brought great success to the club with many memorable and enjoyable days for parents and supporters and we look forward to both teams going on to represent the club at senior level in the years to come.

    Congrats to Tourlestrane on making it three in a row and well done to the Enniscrone/Kilglass club for the very successful hosting of the County finals today.

  • The Gaels advanced to the final of the Intermediate Championship after a hard fought semi-final replay win over Enniscrone. Despite playing with the benefit of a strong breeze, it was Enniscrone who dominated the first half and led by a point at half time.

  • The U21 team advanced to the semi-final of the B Championship with a last gasp win over Curry in an exciting game played in Curry on Sunday. Curry raced into a five point lead but the Gaels kept in touch and pulled the deficit back to the minimum at the break. In the second half both teams struggled to assert themselves, however Curry looked to be coming out on top when they were one point up going into injury time. The Gaels, however finished in style when a great turnover from Daire Kearns set up Seamus Hailstones who’s decisive run split the Curry defence and he laid off to Shane Deignan who was clinical in dispatching the ball to the net to put the Gaels into a two point lead. There was still time for Darragh Hailstones to get the insurance point from a free to give the Gaels a 1-13 to 0-13 win.

    We made our exit from the Intermediate Championship losing 0-11 to 0-8 to St Johns in the semi-final last Sunday.

  • It was with sadness that we learned last week of the passing of Club Patron, Greta Quinn in her 98th year. Greta had a long association with the club since its foundation in 1972 along with her late husband Dominic who was one of the founding members and Joint-Treasurer on the first committee. Greta was for many years a critical member of the backroom team looking after the various team kits and always had them in pristine condition for match day, a tradition that her family continue to this day. Greta and Dominic have left a significant legacy with their sons, daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren heavily involved in the club at all levels, executive, administration, coaching and playing. We will always remember the part that Greta played in our club's development and she typified all that was best in the GAA carrying out her role in a quiet unassuming way without looking for reward or recognition. We extend our deepest sympathies to the Quinn family and extended family who have given, and continue to give so much to Shamrock Gaels. There was a minutes silence observed at all the Gaels games at the weekend in her memory. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.

  • The Minor team completed a great few days for the club capturing our second county title of the week when they were deserving winners over St Farnans in the Minor A League final replay. The Gaels had a fantastic first half and raced into an eight point lead with some impressive forward play and scores only matched by great defending that limited St Farnans to two scores in the first half, one being a penalty in the closing stages to leave the half time score 0-9 to 1-1. It was St Farnans who were on top in the early stages of the second half and helped by two quick goals found themselves two points ahead mid-way through the half. The Gaels dug deep and Andy Flynn fired home a goal to put the Gaels three up after points from Steven Willis and Darragh Hailstones had leveled the game. St Farnans did pull one back before Flynn again pointed to restore the Gaels advantage. Despite a strong finish from St Farnans the Gaels' resilient defence absorbed all that was thrown at them and we went on to win on a scoreline of 1-14 to 3-5. The team was: Daniel Lyons, Paul Harrington, Ben Tuohy, Evan Lyons, Alan Kelly, Karl McKenna, Daniel Murphy, James Carroll (0-1), Enda O'Connell (Capt), Andy Flynn (1-3), Darragh Hailstones (0-3), Daire Kearns (0-3), Dylan Willis (0-1), Steven Willis (0-2), Seamus Hailstones. Subs: Patrick Benson (0-1) for A Kelly.

  • It was a great weekend for the Club with the Boys U14 and Girls U14 both winning their respective A Championships. The Boys were first up taking on Eastern Harps. The Gaels had a tough time in the first half playing against a strong breeze, however a Michael Barry goal just before half time gave them a lifeline. The Gaels burst out of the traps in the second half and 2 goals from Dylan Willis and one from Shane Deignan gave the Gaels a commanding lead mid-way through the half and eventually ran out winners on a scoreline of 4-9 to 1-12. The team was: Ultan McKenna, Adam King, Sean Carroll,  Shane McCann, Evan Lyons, Patrick Benson, Bryan Johnston, Seamus Hailstones (0-1), James Carroll (0-1), Dylan Willis (2-2), Daniel Lyons (0-1), Dillon McDermott (0-4), Michael Barry (1-0), Shane Deignan (1-0), Brendan Hailstones. Subs: Christian Monaghan, Paul Leyden, Killian Walsh, Ryan Brennan, Adrian Benson, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Eoin Dwyer, Dylan Mullen, Dylan Burke, Kian Johnston. Well done and thanks to the Management team of Glen McDermott, Rosario Johnston and Michael Tonry for their work with the team for the year. 

    The Girls started against Drumcliffe/Rosses Point playing with the wind, however some wayward shooting in the first half meant the Gaels went in a point down at half time. However just like the boys the Girls came out in the second half with a flurry and three quick goals gave them a commanding lead and they went on to win 4-5 to 1-6. The team was: Maeve McDermott, Lisa Callaghan, Aoife Morrisroe, Katy McCann, Katie Little, Jade Lyons (0-1), Lousie Merrick, Chloe McTiernan, Eba McCann, Roisin Kearns, Rachel Boyd (2-1), Erin Mullaney (1-1), Jane Benson (0-1), Keeva McDermott, Makayla McLoughlin (1-1) Subs: Ela McDermott (0-1), Mairead Tuohy, Aine Brennan, Leah Monaghan, Kate Buckley, Aine Kearns, Erin O’Sullivan, Isobel Clarke, Rachel Healy.

  • The Senior team drew at home with St Marys in the opening group 3 game of the Kiernan Cup played last Saturday in difficult weather conditions. The Gaels got of to a great start with a point from a free from Joe Quinn and a point from play from Brian Boyd, however St Marys soon got to grips with the game and dominated the following twenty minutes scoring a goal and three points to go into a four point lead mid-way through the first half. The Gaels responded well and finished the half stronger scoring three unanswered points to trail by a point at half time.

    The second half was only moments under way when a lapse in the Gaels defence let Marys in for a goal to go four points up. This was to be St Marys last score as the Gaels took control and dominated for the rest of the game - with the defence in particular snuffing out the Marys attacks however the Gaels struggled in the final third with a number of wides which on another day would have gone over, nevertheless the Gaels did claw their way back with subsitute Eoin McDermott getting the equlaising point on twenty five minutes.

    The final score was: 0-9 to 2-3. The team was: Mark Tuohy, Colin Harte, James Lyons, Shane Barry, John Craig, Paul Brennan, Keith McMorrow, Liam O'Connell (0-2), Paul Higgins (0-1), Brian Boyd (0-2), Enda Tuohy, Derrick Davey, Joe Quinn (0-3), David Quinn, Johnny Quinn. Subs: Niall Craig for C Harte, Eoin O'Connell for E Tuohy, Eoin McDermott (0-1) for D Quinn.

  • Senior Football

    Under a new management team consisting of Glen Mc Dermott, John Lyons and James Conlon, competitive action got underway on 12th February with the Kiernan Cup, in which we won 1 game and lost 2, thereby failing to progress to the knockout stages for the first time in a number of years. 2011 saw our return to Division 1 of the Senior League, which commenced on 5th March. Our campaign was hugely hampered by injuries and emigration from the outset. Despite this, it was heartening that we retained our place in Division 1 with a record of 11 games played, winning 3, drawing 3 and losing 5, to end up in eight place. We also participated in the Leo Kenny Cup and reached the quarter-final by defeating Dromahair but were subsequently beaten by Tourlestrane in the quarter-final. In the Championship, we were drawn in an extremely difficult group under a new format, with Eastern Harps, Coolera / Strandhill, Molaise Gaels, Ballymote and Easkey. We lost our first 4 games in the group and drew our last game with Easkey to once again find ourselves in the relegation process. In a tense encounter in Ballymote we emerged with a 2 point win over Tubbercurry to preserve our Senior Championship status.
    In many ways, 2011 was a mixed bag for the senior squad. As I've said, injuries and emigration were unfortunate elements during the year and these factors prompted the progression of a number of Minors to Senior football and it's fair to say that these young players were not found wanting despite the big step up. Nevertheless, given the retention of our Division 1 and Senior Championship status we remain in a great position to kick on and hopefully realise the undoubted potential within this squad in 2012. Our sincere thanks to Glen, John and James for their huge commitment and professional approach with the senior squad in 2011.

    Junior Football

    2011 marked a significant milestone for the juniors with promotion to Division 3 being achieved. The League campaign got underway on 9th April with a walkover against Owenmore Gaels. Our record was; played 11, won 7, drew 2 and lost 2 to end up joint second on 16 points. We subsequently beat Drumcliffe / Rosses Point in an exciting playoff game at Oxfield to gain promotion to Division 3. In the Championship, which commenced on 17th July, we turned in equally impressive performances in beating Easkey in home and away legs to qualify for the semi-finals, in which we comprehensively beat St. Farnans. Our good form deserted us however in the final, which was played under lights at Sligo IT against neighbours, Geevagh. We never really played to our potential in this game and lost out by one point in heartbreaking circumstances. Nevertheless, the junior panel and team management can look back with some satisfaction on 2011, which saw real progress. Well done to all of the squad for their efforts over what was a long year and a special word of thanks to the team management of Vivion Boyd, Eugene Carroll and Shane Quigley and also Vincent Henry and Hilary Lyons. As has been repeatedly said before, the fortunes of the senior team are closely linked to those of the juniors and the Club faces a big challenge in 2012 as we field teams in Divisions 1 and 3 of the Senior League.

    Under 20's
    Mark Tuohy, Derrick Davey and Joe Quinn again took charge of the under 20's in 2011. This year we were entered in the 'A' Championship and hopes were high for a good run for this promising squad. Following a walk-over against Coolera/Strandhill on 9th October, we comprehensively beat St. Mary's in the next game. Our final group game was at home to St. John's, a must win game in which we never played to our full potential and ended up losing by three points. The disappointment at this result was underlined by the fact that St. John's subsequently went on to win the title. Once again, many thanks to the management team of Mark, Derrick and Joe and as I said last year, it's very encouraging to see senior players taking on such roles within the Club.

    Bord Na nÓg

    After a solid League campaign, the Minors reached the Division 1 League final on 21st July and despite losing the final by 5 points to St. Mary's, this was a game that could have gone either way in what was a thrilling exhibition of football played in a great spirit throughout by both teams. We had somewhat more mixed fortunes in the Championship, which got underway on 4th August. Our record was that we played 5 games, winning 2 and losing 3, thereby failing to progress to the knockout stages.

    Despite operating with a limited panel, the U16's put in a very good performance in Division 3 of the League, winning six of their seven games to top the League. They then defeated second placed Drumcliffe / Rosses Point in the League Final on 16th May. Our fortunes in the Championship were not quite so good, losing two and winning one of our three group games. This saw us enter the Shield competition, in which we comprehensively defeated Bunninadden in the semi-final before going down to Drumcliffe / Rosses Point in the final on a scoreline that didn't do justice to our efforts on the day.

    The U14's reached the semi-final of Section 1 of the Division 1 League, where they were beaten by Tourlestrane. They defeated St. Michaels in the first round of the Championship before going under to Calry / St. Joseph's in the quarter-final. They then faced St. Michaels again in the quarter-final of the Shield competition. This time however St. Michaels narrowly had the upper hand in a high scoring game. The U14's also took part in a blitz in Roscommon, in which they won 2 games and lost 1.

    Once again we were fortunate to be in a position to field two U12 teams in 2011. Our Section 1A team had an indifferent League campaign, losing 6 games and winning 1. Our Division 2B team had a great run however, winning 5 of their 7 games to end up in joint second place in their League. We went on to contest the 'B' Shield semi-final where we were beaten by Coolaney / Mulinabreena and to win the 'C' Shield Final by beating Eastern Harps. A lot of input was necessary at this grade given the number of players involved so well done to all concerned for their work with both squads during the year.

    In the U13 Feile Shield competition we had a very successful run, winning all six of our League games to advance to the semi-final, where we comprehensively defeated Coolaney / Mulinabreena. St. Pat's were our opponents in the final but were outclassed by a talented Gaels team who now look forward to the possibility of representing Sligo at the National Feile in Laois later on this year.

    Our thanks also to those involved with the U8's and U10's who continued to run well attended Saturday morning training as well as organising our participation in a series of blitzes around the county during the season. Unfortunately we were unable to host the Dominic Quinn Cup this year due to an inexplicable decision by Coiste na nOg. Hopefully in 2012 we will be able to find a suitable format for this Cup, which has been an eagerly anticipated part of our Club's calendar for many years now.

    Our U12, U14, U16 girls & Senior Ladies teams had mixed fortunes in 2011 and a lot of work continues with these grades in sometimes difficult circumstances and we hope for a brighter 2012 for Ladies football within the Club.

    The under-age awards were held in the Folk Park on 5th March and again proved to be most enjoyable and well attended event and provides due recognition to our young Club members. Thanks to all involved in organising this event and to the Folk Park for making their facilities available. The awards on the night went to:

    U10 Boys - Dylan Mc Dermott
    U10 Girls - Rachel Boyd
    U12 'The Shamrocks' team - (Boys) Steven Willis

    The 2010 Minor B Championship winners and the 2010 U14 C Blitz winners were also presented with their medals on the night by Frank Quinn.

    We held a very successful registration night on 12th February and I would like to thank our new Club Registrar, Paul Brennan in helping out on the day as well as helping to assemble a club database of player members.

    The VHI Cul Camp was held at Shamrock Gaels Park from 25th - 29th July and thanks to everybody who helped out over the week.

    Other

    Congratulations to Gus Chapman on his appointment to the National hurling referees' panel for 2012.

    Congratulations also to Declan Loughnane on his appointment as manager of the Sligo Senior hurlers.

    We had the Club Dinner Dance on 19th March, at which the Vincent Boyd Senior Player of the Year award went to James Lyons. Ruth Tighe was awarded the Davina Duncan Memorial Cup for Ladies Player of the Year whilst the Club Person of The Year award went to Cormac Kearns. The 2010 U20 'B' Championship medals were presented to the panel by County Board Chairman, Cyril Feehily. Our special guest on the night was Sligo Senior manager, Kevin Walsh, who made presentations to Frank Quinn, Mark Tuohy and Joe Quinn who were members of the victorious Sligo All-Ireland Junior panel.

    The annual Golf Classic was again held in Castle Dargan on 21st May and once again this was a very successful and enjoyable event. Thanks to FBD, main sponsors and all of the other sponsors and all of the teams who participated as well as Eugene Carroll and the organising committee. First prize went to Eoin Carroll, Conor Mc Keon, Mark Kelly and Donal Carroll. Thanks again this year to Castle Dargan for assisting by way of reduced green fees.

    I wish to thank Sligo Folk Park for the continued use of their magnificent facilities for various Club events during the year. I also wish to thank Riverstown Park Committee for the use of its facilities in 2011.

    As we do every year, a very sincere word of thanks to John Joe, Margaret and Katie Mc Goldrick for the way in which they continue to maintain our clubhouse, which is a credit to them. We were presented with the 2010 Sligo Club Grounds of the Year in February and this is a testament to the way in which our grounds and clubhouse are maintained.

    In April we organised a very successful scrap metal and used clothing collection in conjunction with Arrow Harps. A lot of hard work went into this venture and many thanks to everybody involved. It's fair to say that this venture galvanized a lot of Club members and as we face into what is bound to be another challenging year financially, I would strongly appeal to all Club members to row in behind the Club as we continue to build on the progress of the past number of years. I wish to sincerely thank all of our sponsors and all others who contributed in any way to the Club during the year

    Again, I wish to sincerely thank Mrs. Quinn and the Quinn family for their preparation of Club kit across all grades. This is a job that may sometimes appear to be taken for granted but it is sincerely appreciated by the Club.


    On 12th November we held another in a series of special Club Forum meetings in Sligo Folk Park, which was exclusively devoted to the development of coaching policies and general footballing matters across all grades from under-age to Mens & Ladies adult football. A number of good ideas and policies arose from this particular forum and I hope that the year ahead will see us implement some or all of these.

    Our annual Club Mass for deceased Club members was celebrated in Gleann on 25th November. During the year we lost a number of friends of the Club, however I want to particularly remember our Club patrons, Fr. Francis Quinn and Mattie Quigley and also Mrs. Anne Henry, Joe O'Grady and John Mulvaney, who all passed away during the year. Ar dheis De go raibh a n-ainmneacha.

    In conclusion, I wish to thank all of my fellow members of the Executive for their work during the year and look forward to what will hopefully be a great year for the Gaels.
