Annaduff will win

Annaduff – Bornacoola Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 07:00

This is the last time Bornacoola have won a Senior title, but hopefully this will be rectified in the forseeable future!! Beirne, Tony Hayden, Vincie Faughnan, Mick Hussey, Noel Hayden, Frank Donnelly, J.P. 1957 was a great year for the club, as Bornacoola took the double, beating Melvin Gaels 3-7 to 0-5 in the Championship Final, and overcoming Aughavas in the League Final. McGushin, Gerry McGarry, Eddy Duffy, Tommy Shanley, Michael J. Newton, Stanley Cox. The 1957 winning team was: Packie Greene, Charlie Devine, Jack McNally, John T.

However, games became irregular due to the Leitrim Minor's historic success, and the County Commitee decreed in early 1999 that the unfinished leagues would be abandoned, ensuring Bornacoola another year in the top flight. However the most significant victory for the club was the Minor A Championship, which was captured along with the Minor League title, the first time for the club since the 50's. The Junior team were unlucky to be defeated by Cloone in the Division 3 Championship final. 1998 and for the first time since the 60's, Bornacoola were playing Senior football. This outstanding achievement created an all-time Leitrim record in winning 3 championship and league doubles in successive years and remaining unbeaten in the process!

This could be the tightest game of the weekend and really is too close to call. I can see both teams winning but Carrigallen might just have an edge in scoring power but then Ballinaglera have been running up big totals too. In fact the north Leitrim men have actually averaged more a game than Carrigallen, hitting over 21 points a game to the just under 20 Carrigallen have registered.

Marys led at half time by 1-5 to 1-1. St. Marys ran out easy winners by 4-6 to 1-5 in the Park on Sunday. Our four second half points came from a 45 by Niall Hanrahan, a point from Cathal Cox and two points from Niall Maxwell. Annaduffs goal came from Niall Maxwell after 23 minutes with Seamus Mulvihill getting a point a minute later. Best for Annaduff were Nigel Cox, Noel Ward, Micheal ODowd, Niall Hanrahan and Niall Maxwell.Annaduff : Niall ODowd,Fergus Beirne, Dan Reilly, Nigel Cox, Noel Ward ( Capt),Thomas Flanagan, Ronan Cox, Micheal ODowd, Niall Hanrahan ( 0-1),Niall Maxwell (1-2),Paddy Garvey, Padraig Dunne, Seamus Mulvihill ( 0-1),Cathal Cox(0-1), Timmy Cox.

That was a tight and tough encounter and I expect no different here. They get a hesitant vote - but only just. The sides met two years ago in a brilliant quarter-final clash in Aughavas with Carrigallen recovering after a slow start to win 3-10 to 1-10. Ballinaglera have the numbers in their favour but for some reason, I'm leaning towards Carrigallen.

The replay is set for next Friday evening, September 13th, at the same venue with 6pm throw-in and extra time to be played in the event of a further draw. While extra time had been provided for in the 6.30pm fixture, it was deemed unsafe by the referee to continue as darkness descended very quickly at the venue. The eagerly awaited Newtowngore Engineering Minor Championship Final between St Marys Kiltoghert and Mac Diarmada Gaels ended level this evening at Avantcard Pirc Sen Mac Diarmada.

Sean McNabola leads the line but you definitely feel that the entire attack is contributing far more than they did last year in the run to the Intermediate Final. Annaduff started slowly and were lucky to draw the first day against Drumkeerin but interestingly, their tally of 2-8 was their lowest of the campaign so far and they have been regularly hitting the 20 point mark.

OConnor), Michael Faughnan (0-01) (for C.McLoughlin) and Colm Cox (for A.Cox). Subs: Conor McLoughlin, (for Gene Cox), John Faughnan (for A.

There is real talent there - the veteran James Flynn leads by example in the full-forward line and is good value for scores while the movement and pace of Ciaran Walsh and Caleb Duffy can cause problems. The Gaels have shown flashes of ability and have gone toe to toe for long periods with the likes of Aughawillan, St Mary's and even Ballinamore but sustaining their effort is the problem.

The last Senior Team to line out for Bornacoola was in the first round of the Championship against Melvin Gaels, the match being played on the newly opened Pairc Sean MacDiarmada. McGarry, Shay Reynolds, Liam Shanley, Noel Hayden, Charlie Shanley, Seamus Hayden, Michael Mallon, Jimmy Geelan, T.P. Shanley and Pascal Diffley. The team was as follows: Sean Farrell, Joe Daly, Tommy Shanley, John Tom McGushin, Gerry McGarry, Michael J. The sixties proved unfruitfull to Bornacoola, and after a number of demoralising defeats, and problems with numbers, the club ceased to exist in 1964.

Planning granted for advanced technology building in Carrick-on-Shannon

All in all, the project has cost 2.8m and will be a jewel in Leitrim GAAs crown, while serving as the proud home of many future generations of Leitrim GAA players. We have waited a long time for the conclusion of an almost 15-year long project but can be very happy with the end product which, when officially opened, will be practically debt-free and that, in itself, is an achievement and something well worth the wait. This is inclusive of the 250k that was made available from the opening of Croke Park to the FAI and IRFU in the noughties. We are indebted to Croke Park and Connacht Council GAA for the contributions incrementally made, to a total of 2m, over the duration of the development. Leitrim GAA Clubs are to applauded to have taken the decision back then to hand over that grant towards the project.

Ballinaglera dropped just three points in the campaign, a one point loss to Eslin and a draw with Bornacoola while Carrigallen lost to both Annaduff and Leitrim Gaels, not a bad sign there against two of the big teams and they were competitive in both games. Like we said, there is not much in it and defensively, Ballinaglera have conceded just five points less than Carrigallen.
