Shamrock Gaels GAA Club notes

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. They now take on Drumcliffe/Rosses Point in the semi-final away next Saturday at 3.00PM. The team was: Daniel Lyons, Evan Lyons, Ben Tuohy, Daniel Murphy, Alan Kelly, Karl McKenna (0-2), Andrew Flynn, Michael Kilkenny (0-1), Enda O’Connell, Daire Kearns (0-1), Darragh Hailstones (0-5), Luke Flynn, Shane Deignan (1-4), Cian McDermott, Mark Kearns. Subs: Partrick Benson for D Murphy, Seamus Hailstones for A Flynn, Steven Willis for K McKenna, Marc Keegan for L Flynn, James Carroll for M Kearns.
