Under 14's

Well done to our Under 14 side who returned to form last Thursday with a comprehensive win over Tubberclaire in the league. Final score St. Malachy's/Ballinagore 4-15, Tubberclair 2-10. Panel: Conor Bolger, Glen Bolger, Paul O’Sullivan, Fiachra Heeney, Pádraig Kane, Ciarán O’Brien, Robbie Keegan, James Murphy, Eoin Deegan, Ben Glennon, Nathan Brudell, Oisin O’Donoughue, Naoise McKenna, Stephen Clarke, Eoin Jackson, Shane Meehan, Normski Doyle, Keenan Carroll, Adam Gavigan.



Under 16's

Hard luck to our U16 team who had to give best to The Downs last Monday evening in Pairc an Bhodhráin. It finished St. Malachy's/Ballinagore 0-08, The Downs 1-12. Team : William Hayes, Liam McNally-Woods, Alan Kincaid, Eoin Mullarkey, Johnny Bermingham, Conor Kane, Andrew Corbett, Liam Cassidy, Stephen Fagan, Pauric Kincaid, Cathal Daly, Brandon Carey, Michael Creegan, Cormac Deegan, Paddy Doody, Brendan Heeney, Joseph Fagan, Brian Pidgeon.



The minor team took to the field in the fifth round of the league last Sunday morning in Pairc an Bhodhráin vs Maryland/Tang. This was the most entertaining minor game so far this year and the football played by both teams is to be commended. Playing against a very strong breeze in the first half the home side held their own until close to half time, when Maryland/Tang snatched a goal to give them an edge going into the second half, the score being 1-6 to 0-6 at the interval. The lads rallied and cleared the deficit before the visitors struck for another well taken goal. Once again the decks were cleared but amazingly Maryland/Tang struck for a third goal with seven minutes remaining. The natives once again made inroads into the lead but time was running out, and eventually it did with just the minimum between them at the finish. Final score 3-10 to 1-15 to the visitors. Team: Cathal Daly, Alan Kincaid, Enda Claffey, Stephen Fagan, David Pidgeon, Seán Mullarkey, David Keegan 0-1, Conor Glennon 0-2, Alan Clarke 0-1, Paddy Doody 0-1, Ciaran Glennon 1-6 (3f), Liam Cassidy 0-2, Eoin Mullarkey, Frankie Deegan 0-1, Pauric Kincaid 0-1. Subs Used: Liam Varley for David Pidgeon (inj.), Eoin Quinn for Eoin Mullarkey.

County Football

Best of luck to Michael Ennis and Westmeath in the first round of the Leinster Championship this Sunday vs Louth in Navan. Well done to Westmeath Ladies in the Division 3 league final last weekend, and especially to Fiona Claffey who scored a vital point to earn a second chance for the team. We wish them the best of luck in the replay.



Well Done Brendan

Congratulations to Brendan Robinson who completed the Belfast city marathon on Bank Holiday Monday. This was a great achievement considering he had pulled his calf muscle in the weeks leading up to it. Well done Ned!!
