Easkey GAA Club notes

Senior Football

Our senior team played out a thrilling 1-12 to 0-15 point draw with local rivals St Farnans last Sunday in round 3 of the Kennedys Intermediate championship. After a good start to the match, we led 0-4 to 0-1 but St Farnans playing with a strong breeze took control and went in at half time leading 0-9 to 0-4. Our lads came out after half time and clawed back the deficit before Mikie Gordons goal and a further point put us back in the lead by 2 points in the dying stages. Two late points from St Farnans levelled the game in what was probably a fair result.

Our lads have no game next weekend and look forward to playing Castleconnor in round 4 on Saturday 24th August in Quigabar, Enniscrone at 6.30pm.

U16 Football

Our Easkey/St Farnans u16s lost to a strong Shamrock Gaels side on a scoreline of 2-10 to 1-6 last night Monday 12th August in round 3 of the u16 football championship. They play St Johns next Monday night 19th August in St Johns for round 4.

Rounders

11 adults travelled to Tymon Park in Dublin to compete in the mixed event along with 10 teams from all over Ireland in the National Junior Adult Rounders Feile. This was the teams inaugural event and after a few initial teething problems they settled in and played some great rounders. Losing out in the quarter finals 12-19 to a strong Limerick side na Piarsaigh. We would love new members from the wider Easkey GAA club who maybe semi- retired from football/ hurling to join rounders and see the level of skill, athleticism and thinking that is required for this exciting sport.
