Tir Chonaill Gaels Club Notes - 20th July 2009
The senior team started off the defence of the championship with an impressive ten point winning margin against the Parnells last Saturday in Ruislip.
A rock solid Gaels rearguard give the Parnells forward line little change with the immaculate Ronan Walsh giving a man of the match performance with Shaun Campbell showing good form after his injury problems.
Kevin “Whoppa” Mc Memamin give the opposition defenders sixty minutes of heartache with his five points with good support from Kevin Downes, Mark Alcorn and sub Chris Maroney.
Final score TCG 0-13, Parnells 0-3. Scorers, K Mc Menamin 0-5, K Downes 0-3, D Cassidy 0-2, L Gavaghan 0-1, M Alcorn 0-1 & J Hughes 0-1
