St. Brigid’s club notes week ending Sunday, June 20th 2021

Division 1 League: It was a good weekend for our first and second adult men’s teams who won their opening league games.

On Saturday evening, our first team faced Boyle in Kiltoom in the O’Rourke Cup, winning convincingly on a scoreline of 4-16 to 1-7.

Like Boyle, our first team were missing our county players, including our U-20 cohort, and we had to drew on some of our junior squad who had played the previous evening.


Despite it being their first competitive game in nine months, our players showed little sign of ring rust and built up a five point lead at the break, 2-6 to 1-4.

As our team went through the gears very quickly after the break, they served up some scintillating football, outscoring Boyle 2-10 to 0-3 in the second half to secure a comprehensive victory.

It was also impressive to see ten different players getting on the scoresheet and the game also showed a growing strength in depth in the squad.


A very solid team performance all round with Pearse Frost and Conor Gleeson the pick of the bunch over the hour or so.

It was also great to see Garvin Dolan back who capped off a good day’s work with a fine point.

Team and scorers: James Martin, John Cunningham (0-1), Peter Domican, Conor MacNeice, Pearse Frost, Alan Daly, Ronan Stack (0-1), Niall McInerney (1-0), Garvin Dolan (0-1), Eoin Sheehy, Gearoid Cunniffe (0-2), Conor Gleeson (0-4, 1m), Keelan Byrne (1-1, 1m), Brian Derwin (1-3, 3f), Ciaran Sugrue (0-2, 1f).


Subs used: Ian O’Rourke for K. Byrne, Donncha Gately (0-1, 1m) for E. Sheehy (43), Eoin Minagh for A. Daly (43), Gavin Byrne (1-0) for G. Cunniffe (43), Eoghan Derwin for N. McInerney (inj.) (58). Their next league outing is in two week’s time away to Elphin.

Division 2 League: Our second team’s opening game in the O’Gara Cup on Friday evening last ended up being a much tighter affair.

Our lads looked to be cruising at the start of the second half, enjoying a six point lead with about ten minutes to go, 2-11 to 2-5.


However, Kilbride hit back with the last five points of the game before time ran out to ensure victory for our lads. The first half was nip and tuck where our lads led at the break by 1-7 to 1-4 .

Despite a dominant first 20 minutes in the second half, helped by a second St. Brigid’s goal from Gavin Byrne, the closing stages turned out to be frantic as we just got over the line to secure the points.

There were a number of good individual displays, especially from Gavin Murphy at midfield, John Cunningham in attack and Liam Egan in defence.


Team and scorers: Cormac Sheehy, Paul Fuery, Conor McNeice. Gary Daly, Luke Grieslan, Eoin Minagh, Shane Fuery, Gavin Murphy (0-2), Brian O’Hara Duggan, Gavin Byrne (1-0), John Cunningham (0-3), Conor Quinn (0-1), Cian McDonnell (0-1), Eoghan Derwin (1-4, 2f), Ian O’Rourke.

Subs used: Liam Egan for P. Fuery (inj.) (3), Colin Daly for B. O’Hara Duggan (ht), Mark Haran for C. McNeice (37), Cian Daly for J. Cunningham (48), Evan Gallagher for I. O’Rourke (48).

Eddie Nestor’s charges now face their biggest game of the year on Friday evening next, June 25th when they face Clann nGael in the rescheduled 2020 Junior A final at Hyde Park. Throw-in, 7.30pm. We wish all involved the very best of luck.

Division 5 League: Our third team play their second league game against Kilbride’s second team this Friday in Kiltoom at 8pm.

U13s: Our under 13 squad were victorious over Garrycastle in the Jim McHugh Shield Final on Sunday evening.

The lads played some brilliant football and eventually ran out winners on a scoreline of 8-12 to 5-9.

Fantastic effort and determination was shown by all players on the panel. A big thank you must go to Garrycastle for hosting the tournament.

Full panel for the tournament: Peter Walsh, Thomas Egan, Jamie Doyle, Rian Fallon, John Morris, Jack Sammon, Ronan Lennon, Matthew Deehan, Cian Cahill, Ryan Hughes, Sean Brett, Emmet Muldowney, Donnchadh O'Dwyer, Patrick Collins, Dara O'Callaghan, Conor Casey, Ruairi Collins, James Digan, James Trundle, Sean McDonnell, Hugh Loftus, Jarlath Mulhern, Fionn Scally, Brian Rourke, Bobby Dolan, Eoin Carr, Robert Shannon, Sean McGorisk, Thomas Carberry, Tadhg Fallon, Joseph Daly, Eoin O'Sullivan, Luke Tully, Eoin Tully, Daniel Fogarty, Jack Reddy.
