Tir Chonaill Gaels Club Notes 5th July 2010
The senior team collected their first trophy of the new season with a well earned win
over St Kiernans in the Conway cup final at Ruislip last Tuesday.
It was a good all round team performance with special mention for Damien
Donnellan, Hugh Cunningham and Kevin Downes. TCG 1-10, Kiernans 1-07
The win took our tally of Conway cups to ten and in doing so taking the pressure off
manager Maurice Carr who has kept up the proud club record of winning a trophy
every year since 1996.
Next up is the Tipperary cup final against Neasden Gaels this Saturday 10th July in
Ruislip, check the club website and local papers for throw-in time.
The Stiffs kept up their winning ways last Saturday against North London Shamrocks
in the reserve league at Greenford with a 2-15 to 0-9 score line.
In a hugely competitive league the Gaels have given themselves a good chance of
reaching the final with four or five teams fighting for two places.
Best on the day were Ger Geraghty, Stephen Owens, Niall Gilleece and Maurice Carr.
Well done to clubmen Stefan Carr and JP O’Donnell who played for the successful
London junior team that defeated Yorkshire in the semi final of the Provincial
championship last Sunday in Birmingham by a score of 1-8 to 0-8.
The lads will now play Lancashire in the final this weekend and all at the club wish
them well for the match.
All at the club wish to pass on our best wishes to club supporters Mick and Grace
Higgins on the arrival of their first baby two weeks ago.
It was good to see some old faces at the club last week with former Chairman Mick
Mc Grath and Paddy Carr paying us a visit and catching up with some old friends.
