Despite numerous club teams taking to the playing fields over the past week, it is our U.12 Girls who deserve top billing after their nail biting one score victory over Owenmore Gaels in the “C” shield final on Sunday morning last. This marked the first piece of silverware won by the club in 2020. Played in breezy conditions in Curry, our girls lead from start to finish running into a 3 score lead at the half time whistle. Owenmore Gaels to their credit rallied strongly in the 2nd half to bring the score back to the bare minimum (3 scores to 2), our girls playing with the aid of a slight breeze were guilty of some wayward shooting but still managed to kick one long range score to put them 2 ahead. Their opponents drew level moments later, when they kicked 2 scores on the trot to draw level for the first time in the game. Scores proved hard to come by and the next score was always going to be vital, to the delight of our restricted supporters it was Geevagh girls who got the vital point to emerge victorious. Great credit to both sides on an exciting game from first whistle to last. Nothing was spared by either side in effort. Afterwards, Charlie, Chloe, Ava & Ailbhe receiving the winning trophy on behalf of their team mates.


U.12 Panel was:

Abbey Fallon, Zoe Conlon, Chloe Egan, Charlie Wilson, Ailbhe Corcoran, Ava Duggan, Emma Brady, Mary Mc Dermottroe, Aine Mostyn, Aoibhe Mc Donagh, Leanne Egan, Laoise Ryan, Katie Bruen, Leah Harte, Kylie Moran, Juliette Taylor, Lana Corcoran.

Well done to Maureen, Mairead and all the parents who helped on at training & on match days.


Our U.14 “great entertainers “Girls team lived up to their billing with a fantastic 4-point victory over Drumcliffe Rosses Point in the “C” Championship semi-final on Thursday evening last. This talented group of footballers don’t do boring, dull games, they lead from first whistle to last to emerge victorious on a 4.8 to 2.10 final score line. Sharp shooter Ruth Killoran kicked 2.5 of her sides total, but this was far from a one girl show from keeper to corner forward every sinew was stretched to the limit by all players to ensure victory. The now play St John’s in the Championship Final on Saturday Sept 26th.


Our senior ladies have another day out after rallying in the last ten minutes of the championship Final to earn a draw with Tourlestrane in Markievicz Park on Saturday last. Played in difficult wet & windy conditions, Tourlestrane ran into an early lead with two goals in a matter of minutes to take hold of the game. Another goal from their opponents saw our ladies behind by seven points at half time. To their credit our ladies never panicked at any stage and kept the score board ticking while still knowing that goals was what would ultimately bring them back into the game. These two precious goals landed from the boots of Elaine & Stephanie to bring them right back into the game, Elaine Reilly levelled matters late in the game, despite the fact that both sides had a chance each to grasp victory, it finished all square at the final whistle Great credit to our ladies for sticking to the task and always believing in themselves. The replay is fixed for Saturday next September 19th, in Connolly Park, Collooney at 2,30pm.


Our senior men held onto their Senior Championship status for 2021 with a deserved six-point victory over East Division rivals Eastern Harps on Saturday evening last. Played in Corran Park, Ballymote, this game was a tale of penalties scored & missed. The mercurial Darren Kearns going full stretch to save a Harps penalty in the 2nd half and midfielder Kevin Henry tucking his sides penalty away to help them on their way to their most vital victory of the season. Further scores from Daniel Devine, Donal Conlon and Pat Hughes left our lads on the right side of a 1.9 to 0.6 score line.

Well done to all involved with the senior lads set up this year.


Our U,12 boys defeated St Michael’s in the last championship game of the group stages on Monday evening last. Playing without a number of injured players this didn’t deter our crew and they stuck diligently to the task in hand. They lead at half time by 9 scores to 3. Michael’s battled in the 2nd half to bring the score by to 9 scores to 7 before our talented bunch kicked to further points to put the game beyond doubt.

Good displays from keeper Sam O’Connor, defenders Ailbhe Corcoran, Aine Mostyn and sharp shooter Niall Foley ensured our U.12 victory. They are now rewarded with a home “B” semi-final, to be played in a few weeks’ time.


Condolences to the Family, Relatives and Friends of the late Bridget Stone (nee Kearns).
