Club Notes - 23rd June 2008
The Senior team had a league game against St Kiernan’s at a blustery Greenford on Sunday. Playing against the wind in the first half the Gaels had to battle hard to stay in touch with the opposition. In the second half with the wind on their back they started to edge ahead with points from Andy Hayes, Chris Moroney and Connor Burke. There was good performance from Michael Maloney, Steven Boyle and Dan McCusker.
Final score TCG 0-11, St Kiernan’s 0-7.
The Minors started their league campaign on Sunday with an impressive win over Parnells. With good performances from Liam Thomas & Ben O’Mahony who had to work hard in the midfield. Scores from Liam Gavaghan (7) Aiden Lynam (3) Frank Lynam (1) Kevin McFadden (1) Marc Hogan (1) Ben O’Mahony (1) and a goal from Liam Thomas. A good scoring game in windy conditions and a final score of TCG 1.14 Parnells 0.10 well done to all and thanks to all the support.
Tir Chonaill Gaels U10’s. Goodmayes 21st June 08
We played only one team on the day as we only started out with 8 players but the numbers swelled to Eleven by 1.30pm. We had a very successful day and won 4 out of our 5 matches. The weather held up and stayed dry, the journey there and back was also stress free. Lots of parents attended and we had great help from Jim who coached and Bernie who helped out with the refereeing.
