Senior Football

We suffered a heavy defeat to the hands of The Nire in last weekends final championship league match. The tone was set for the match in the 3rd minute when a Nire forward latched onto a breaking ball inside the 14-yard line before despatching it to our net for the first score of the match. We were having trouble making any inroads against The Nire defence, but despite this, we contained their scoring threat for much of the first half. However the match was ended as a contest in the 5-minute period before & after half time when The Nire scored a total of 1-8 to decide the contest. Half time score was Rathgormack 0-2, The Nire 1-6. We scored a few good points in the second half but never looked like closing the gap on this very strong Nire team, who have come through the league section of the championship unbeaten, & winning all of their matches comfortably. Final score was Rathgormack 0-6, The Nire 2-14. We have qualified for the quarter-finals finishing fourth in the group, & therefore play Clashmore who finished top of group two. This match will be played on the weekend of the 23rd September, & with a few players to come back into the team we would be hopeful of pulling off a shock & advancing to a semi-final.

Team: Brendan Crotty, Ger Kirwan, Tony Power, Mark Mears, Michael Crotty, Paudie Larkin, Nigel Skehan, Ronan Cahill (0-1), Michael Curry, Conor Walsh, John Kirwan (Bally), Ronan Crotty (0-1), Paul Drohan, Franny Halpin, John Kirwan (Cool) (0-3). Subs: Billy Power for Tony Power, Donal Larkin (0-1) for Paul Drohan, Michael Sexton for Franny Halpin, Paudie Whelan for John Kirwan (Bally), Jack Nugent for Mark Meares.

Cul Camp

We had a weather interrupted Football camp last week, with no camp on either Wednesday or Friday due to the heavy rain. As a result, the camp has carried over to finish on this week, with the final day on Monday 20th August. The club would like to thank all those we made the camp a success for the approx. 90 boys & girls who attended.
