Minor Football

Our minors were beaten by Gaultier in the championship last Sunday in Dunmore on a score line of 4-7 to 2-9. They play The Nire in their next match at home in 2 weeks time.

U21 Football

Our U21 team play Tramore in the eastern final on next Sunday 3rd March at 3:00 PM in Kill. Please come along & shout on the lads.

Intermediate Football

Our intermediates had their first competitive match of the year in the intermediate football eastern league last Sunday at home to Bonmahon. With both teams fielding under strength, we started much the better but failed to make the most of our domination of possession in the first 15 minutes, but still led 4 points to 2 after the first quarter, despite kicking a number of bad wides. However in the next 10 minutes, Bonmahon kicked 1-4 without reply as their more economic use of possession played dividends. We replied with 3 John Kirwan (Cool) points before the break to leave the halftime score Rathgormack 0-7, Bonmahon 1-6. Bonmahon stretched out their lead as the 2nd half progressed, & with 10 minutes remaining they held a comfortable 6-point advantage. With the game entering injury time they were still 5 points up with no hint of a home comeback but 2 points from Daniel Drohan & John Kirwan (Cool) in the 60th & 62nd minute left a goal between the sides, & when John Kirwan lobbed a free into the square a minute later, Seanie Lacey got a fist to it & it finished in the net to give us an unlikely & possibly undeserved draw when the final whistle blew with the kick out. Final score, Rathgormack 1-12, Bonmahon 1-12. Team: Padraig Hunt, John Crotty, Anthony Power, Liam Walsh (Mothel), Liam Walsh (Bally), Johnny Quinlan, Muiris Quinlan, Tony Power, Seanie Lacey (1-2), Steven Kirwan (0-1), John Kirwan (Cool) (0-6), Daniel Drohan (0-1), Mikey Halpin, Paudie Whelan (0-2), Donal Larkin.
