Gaelic 4 Others
Gaelic 4 Others is a new initiative for ladies who wish to play football for fun and enjoyment in a non competitive environment. Earlier this year many ladies in our parish of Drangan and Cloneen expressed an interest in forming a Gaelic 4 Others ladies football team. Shane Ivors took up the manager’s role and training started with the 20 plus ladies who wished to take part.
On Wednesday April 11, the first match of the year was against neighbours Ballingarry. Any notion that this was just going to be for fun were dismissed as soon as the ball was thrown in as both teams gave it their all in what was a well fought sporting game. St.Patrick’s started well and had the better of exchanges in the first half. Goals from Sally Duggan and Marie Meaney and points from Camilla Tobin and Fiona Shanahan gave St.Pats a 2-2 to 1-2 lead at half time. Ballingarry fought back well in the second half and when Helen Barrett ended a long run from centre field with a well taken goal there was nothing between the sides. Both sides gave a sigh of relief when referee Paddy Ivors blew the whistle for full time as they had given their all.
Both teams were delighted with their performance and everyone enjoyed the game. The evening ended with both teams returning to Amby’s bar for refreshments kindly provided by the Ballingarry club. St.Patrick’s ladies will take great heart from this game and will look forward to their next game with greater confidence.
St. Patricks team: Tess Burke, Ann-Marie Ryan, Emma Horan, Catriona Boland, Marie Meaney, Katie O’Brien, Margaret Hogan, Amy O’Connor, Fiona Shanahan, Leona Ivors, Camilla Tobin, Mairead Foley, Katie Kearney, Sally Duggan, Ailish O’Brien, Cara Danagher, Shiela Butler, Shelley Moloney and Catherine Ryan.
Juniors had a challenge game against Clonmel Commericals on Saturday evening past in Clonmel. Despite best efforts in the first half, Commericals run out easy winners, so a lot of work to be done in the coming weeks and months!
The next league game is an away game against Cappawhite B scheduled for next weekend.
Registration for all players will be take place on Thursday May 4, 7pm to 8pm in the Clubrooms in Cloneen.
Best wishes to our junior player and u10 coach Helen Hogan who sustained a recent injury. The club and particularly the u10 girls wish Helen a speedy recovery .
