Padraig Pearses – Boyle Match Prediction | 30-09-2019 09:45

Full time Padraig Pearses 2-9 St. Brigids fightback then followed and when Brian Stack dispatched a penalty to thenet,we found ourselves four down, a ten point turnaround in as many minutes. Thankfully we finished the game stronger and had a penalty of our own scored by Hubert Darcy before he rounded off the scoring with his first from playto put us back into alead, whichwe held to the38thminute final whistle. That score also brought all six of our forwards onto the scoresheet, a positive sign ahead of the championship getting underway next weekend.The inevitable St. It was a tight and tense opening period, and despite scoringonlya point from play we went in level four points apiece at the break.The second half was amore open and freeflowing affair, and we got off to a flying start moving 1-7 to 0-4 ahead when Conor Payne got a fantastic solo goal.

But Clann have very competent performers in Ruth Finlass, Kelley Colgan, Megan Kelly, Emma Kildea, Kara Earle and Kayleigh Dunning and the major success at underage level that they have had in recent years will surely soon transfer into senior titles. Ollie Lennons side has loads of experience and with the likes of Tara Taylor, Rochelle Mullaney, Siobhan Tully, Sinead Clabby, and Alice Kelly on board it is hard to look beyond the champions.


Roscommon Gaels quest for a first senior title in 15 years is still on course after this enjoyable quarter-final played in Strokestown on Saturday evening. Liam McNeills men faltered a bit during the first half when playing against the strong breeze, but once they got going in the second period they pulled away to win with a bit to spare.

We have been drawn in a tough group with Strokestown B, Kilmore B and Boyle B. Junior B The An Tin sponsored Junior B team will be commencing their Championship campaign in the next fortnight, with fixture details tbc. Anybody interested in getting involved is asked to contact a member of the management team Padraig Kelly, Mike Dolphin, Brendan OSullivan or Tom Grenham.

Its also a testament to the status of the Co. The link between sport and good causes has always been strong and the recent Pat Smullen Champions Race for Cancer at The Curragh has now raised in excess of 2.5 million for cancer research, which is a staggering amount. Offaly man who is suffering from pancreatic cancer at the moment.

Clann and Pearses can make last four

Points from Natalie McHugh and Aisling McGuire followed before a mis-hit shot from Nicola Tully deceived Paula Daly and managed to creep under the crossbar to leave Kilglass ahead once more. Ciarans responded with a Laura Fleming free, however it was Kilglass who would finish the first-half scoring with two frees from Nicola Tully leaving them two up at the break. Kilglass then had a purple patch of their own.

But Nigel Dineens Town side stepped up a gear after that and it was a really tense contest in the final quarter. It looked likely that Fuerty would keep their noses in front as they were always able to match Stokestown score for score in the third quarter. Fuerty didnt score for the final 20 minutes and that cost them dearly in the end. By the 43rd minute, Fuerty led by 1-8 to 1-5.

Club Notes August 18

Outstanding points from play from Gillooly (2) and Carolan (2) saw the margin grow to four by the 42nd minute and the Gaels never looked in trouble from then on. Aaron Brady converted a long-range free and Fintan Cregg kicked a couple of fine points, but it was a lost cause at that stage for Elphin. The Gaels capped a commanding second-half display with a great team move which finished with sub Richard Hughes fisting home a goal in injury-time.

Clann look a very hungry side and they desperately want to win this title. I went for Kilbride to win the match last weekend on the basis of their firepower and experience, but now Im not so sure. Im going to flip and predict that the Johnstown girls will be a point or two ahead when the final whistle blows.

Conor Hardiman was resolute at the back, fought hard for every ball, supported the midfielder s and thwarted many attacks on the day. He also got forward to score a wonderful point from an impossible angle. We were in control of all our games during the day. In the spirit of go games every boy played and came away from the day having had great fun. On a blustery but dry day for football, we had 2 teams participating. Culainn Green used his strength to drive forward at every opportunity while also intercepted vital balls in defence. For team two, Donnacha Whyte was dependable and strong in the tackle, made vital interceptions and also scored a fantastic goal. All the lads showed great pride in the jersey and a willingness to improve in every game. Aidan Og Gallagher was outstanding on the day. Enda Browne once again showed his class with brilliant work rate, superb score taking and never say die attitude. Each team played 4 matches. Noah Glennon once again showcased his neat footwork and side-stepping ability to create numerous scores for himself which he duly converted. The teams were of mixed ability and it was an opportunity for the younger players to test themselves against the older boys. The u10 management would like to thank the parents for the continued commitment, encouragement and support for the teams. Equally, Joe Johnston and Diarmuid Killeen impressed with their super performances, winning 50-50 balls, kicking scores and tackling crisply. Jason Carty was simply unbeatable in defence with his great reading of the play and outstanding block downs. Our u9s relished the challenge and really rose to the occasion. Jack brooks covered every part of the pitch, worked tirelessly for the team and took outstanding scores under pressure, John Murray new to the squad showing a willingness to work and is improving with every session. For team one, Dylan and Daniel Goode excelled in midfield as usual, kicking an array of scores and delivering pinpoint passes to the forwards. Pearses had 16 warriors on the day including Diarmuid Kileen, Culainn Green,Daniel Goode, Dylan Goode, Jack Brooks, Jason Carty, Joe Johnston, Donnacha Whyte, John Murray, Noah Glennon, Conor Hardiman,, Enda Browne, Sam o Brien, Anthony Gallagher, Aidan Og Gallagher, Michael Brooks, Ava Hardiman. Brigid's also competed. This coupled with the exceptional play by our more senior players provided us with a very strong platform throughout the games. While down numbers due to holidays etc the boys who were in attendance were fully committed to the cause. He stopped many attacks with his glue-like marking and ability to get in front of his man. Both of our teams settled into their games early and played some excellent football throughout the schedule of matches. Overall the teams should be very proud of their performances. Sam o Brien showed great energy throughout, tackled tenaciously and was always on hand to help a teammate. Anthony Gallagher showed great leadership, worked hard when we didn't have the ball and scored many points with his trusty left boot. Pearses u10 footballers attended a go games blitz hosted by Roscommon Gaels on Saturday, August 17th. Michael brooks was a rock in goal, sound under the highball and delivered super kick-outs. Also a special mention for Ava Hardiman who stepped in to help our numbers and showcased her excellent football skills. Along with the host club, Clann na Gael & St.

Key Events

Some even argue (quite legitimately) that theres no guarantee Ireland will be the biggest fish in their own pool. Ask most Irish supporters and theyll tell you our Team of Us are outsiders behind the likes of New Zealand, South Africa and, perish the thought, England. The general consensus is that this World Cup has come along a year too late for Joe Schmidts men and the world ranking doesnt accurately reflect the current state of world rugby.

Long before a ball was kicked in this championship Pearses were the choice of many people to go on this year and finally break their duck and win the Fahey Cup for the first time in their history. There was a question mark over their attack, but Hubert Darcy, Paul Carey and Conor Payne were all excellent against Brigids and are coming into form at just the right time. Still, they finally showed what they can do in a confidence-boosting win against St. Mouth-watering is the clich that immediately comes to mind. Brigids. However, Pat Flanagans men stuttered over the first few hurdles, doing just enough to win, and in fact they lost by a point to Clann. Readers wont need to be reminded about the ability of the Dalys, Davy Murray and Shane Carty in the Pearses defence. Conor Daly will be back from suspension.

It remains to be seen whether or not Scott Oates and Cian Connolly will be able to return from the Middle East again this weekend. Strokestown will have to restrict the supply to corner-forwards Carolan and Gillooly if they are to keep the Gaels at bay. Given their panel, the Gaels look the stronger. If the Gaels maintain their solid form, it should be enough to get them through. In any event, they have Richard Hughes back in action and Mark Nally has returned from abroad too.
