Glenroe GAA Development Project
New AstroTurf for Glenroe GAA
We thank everyone who has donated so far to our amazing project of the astroturf field that is now up and running. We have received an amazing €143,000 from Sports Capital and a further €70,000 from Tomar Trust to get our Project. We ask people who haven’t yet contributed if you can support this great project. We recently held a family fun day which showcased what a brilliant facility we have, there will be a number more events that will be organised in 2022/2023 to ensure we reach our target. We are asking you to consider sponsoring a square of AstroTurf at a cost of €250. This square of AstroTurf can be sponsored by an individual or a family. We also ask that if you do wish to support our campaign that you do so through the Tax Relief Scheme. All what this will imply for you is the filling out of a form but the financial gains for our development project will be huge.

Forms for Tax Relief Scheme available from the club or any member of the fundraising committee. You can also donate online through Swoofee on the Glenroe Social Media Pages.
Glenroe U21’s get off to a fantastic start to Championship in Glenroe
Glenroe got off to a fantastic in championship at home to Ballybricken on Sunday. Glenroe started a bit slow with Ballybricken getting the first two points of the game but then they quickly found their feet opening up a three point lead inside the first ten minutes some excellent scores from Liam Dennehy, Shaun Moloney and Zach McCarthy. The Glenroe pressure kept going doubling their lead in the next 10 minutes with Liam continuing his good form and Darren Frewen with some lovely scores from the inside line. Glenroe kept the difference between the two team the same going into the half time break with another 3 points on the board. Half time scores Glenroe 0-13 Ballybricken 0-7. Ballybricken started the second half in a quick fashion with two points to bring the lead down to four, however they quickly turned this around with some great scores from Darren Frewen and Shane O’Donoghue. Glenroe started to pull away with Liam Dennehy having a fine day on the frees and Shane O’Donoghue having an excellent second half. Glenroe kept putting on the pressure with Liam Dennehy, Shane O’Donoghue and Darren Frewen all adding to their tally’s and despite Ballybricken getting a late goal Glenroe were too far ahead for them to get a late comeback. The final score was Glenroe 0-25 to Ballybricken 1-11.

Glenroe Juniors fall short in the South Semi-Final to Bruree
Glenroe Juniors just fall short of a South Final after defeat to Bruree last Wednesday night in Doon. Glenroe suffered a setback quick into the game with Bruree scoring a quick goal inside 5 minutes, however Glenroe got back into the game with a big wind aiding them with some great scores from Bob Frewen on the frees and a superb score from the sideline from Sean McGrath. This was then followed by a great goal from Killian Meade, Glenroe were in the ascendency and looked to get a lead going into the second half playing against the wind. Glenroe got this by a long strike Johnny Tallon that went directly into the net, however the games big turning point came soon after when Kieran Tobin saw red from the referee. Bruree capitalised on this by scoring a goal before the break. The half time scores were Glenroe 2-8 Bruree 2-3. In the second half it was always going to be a struggle for Glenroe playing against the wind and having 14 men, however Glenroe were hanging on to their lead with some excellent defending and a couple of frees from Bob Frewen to keep them ahead. The Bruree pressure became too much for Glenroe in the end and Bruree got a crucial goal late in the second half which was a killer blow to Glenroe, this along with a couple of points was too much for Glenroe to turn around unfortunately. The final score was Glenroe 2-10 Bruree 3-11. It was a disappointing way to finish a fantastic year for the Junior B’s resulting in a South League Title, a County League Final appearance and topping their group in the championship. Thanks to Shane Hennessy and Damien Cremins for their commitment throughout the year and the team which put on some memorable performances throughout the year.
Team: Alan McSweeney, Keelan Riordan, Tommy O’Donnell, Danny Hayes, Conor Fenton, Kieran Tobin, Paidraig Gallahue, Johnny Tallon (1-0), Dave Lane (0-1), Killian Meade (1-0), Paidraig McGrath, Daniel Hennessy, Sean McGrath (0-1), Patrick Shanahan, Bob Frewen (0-8, all from frees)
