CRECORA-MANISTER GAA CLUB NOTES
Our intermediate footballers suffered a disappointing 1-10 to 0-9 defeat to St Patrick’s in the intermediate football championship relegation semi final last Sunday evening. The opening quarter was a tight and tense affair with points exchanged between the two sides with a Richard Murphy free and Karl Moloney effort making 0-2 apiece at the first water break. The second quarter of the game belonged to Pats however as they outscored us 1-5 to 0-0, the crucial goal coming just on the stroke of half time. We began to eat into the deficit in the second half with Richard Murphy frees and a fine Cormac Flanagan effort but the city side were always able to keep us at arm’s length as it finished 1-10 to 0-9. Team: Rob Sweeney; Cian Leahy, Tim Moloney, Pa Dolphin; Evan Moloney, Sean Fitzgerald, Mark Shanahan; Cormac Flanagan (0-1), Karl Moloney (0-1); Sam Riordan, Richard Murphy (0-7f), Darach Skelly; Shane O’Connell, Mike McCormack, Gary O’Connell. Subs: Cathal O’Neill, Donnacha Connolly, Conor Burke, Tomas Connolly, Conor Kirby, John McManus, Dom O’Connor, Cian Donohue, Killian Scanlon, Rob Greer, Sean Keyes, Eoghan O’Connor, Shane O’Connor, Micheál O’Neill (inj.), David Macken (inj.). Next up is the relegation final with Monaleen on Saturday 16th October in Claughaun at 4.30pm.
