Big Wins opens up questions on West and North Roscommon future

St Brigids and Padraig Pearses advanced to the Hudson Bay hotel Roscommon SFC semi-final at some ease.

Collaborative teams North and West Roscommon were no match for the established club heavyweights.

Padraig Pearses 1-13 West Roscommon 1-7


Padriag Pearses advanced to the semi-final with some ease, finding the net with just four minutes on the clock through Paul Carey.

Lorcan Daly, two Carey points and from Conor Payne saw Pearse 1-4 to 0-1 ahead on 11 minutes. Fintan Cregg with West Roscommon’s point.


To be fair the West team didn’t lie down. Another Cregg point and Dessie Carlos goal made it a two point game on 18 minutes. Pearses leading 1-4 to 1-2.

Pearses responded strongly. Declan Kenny (f), Carey (f) and Jack Turmulty sending over points as Pearses led 1-7 to 1-2 at half-time.

Pearses were never threatened in the second-half and points from Paul Carey, Ronan Daly and Declan Kenny plus three from Eoin Colleran (2f) saw them home.


Fintan Cregg sent over four frees with Gerry Gregg another a final point for West Roscommon as they lost out 1-7 to 1-13.

Clann Na nGael or Boyle await in the semi-final.

St Brigids 7-15 North Roscommon 0-7


North Roscommon were caught totally out of their depth in the second SFC quarter-final.

Matthew Burke opened the scoring on three minutes with a North Roscommon point. Alas, it was their final score until the 30th minute.

Ben O’Carroll ran in two goals and a point with a goal each from Ciaran Surgue and Bobby Nugent seeing Brigids lead 4-6 to 0-2 at half-time.


The North side was made up mainly of junior players and although rallied somewhat in the second-half were not match for Brigids.

Ben O’Carroll completed a hat-trick of goals on 42 minutes. Ciaran Surgue grabbed his second goal of the game a minute later. O’Carroll grabbed his fourth four minutes from time.

O’Carroll finished the game with 4-3 with Ciaran Surgue scoring 2-4 as Brigids ran out 29 point winners, 7-15 to 0-7.

Brigids will face Oran or Roscommon Gaels in the semi-final.
