Tir Chonaill Gaels Club Notes - 11th April 2011
The senior team played their round 2 match of the Tipperary cup against Moindearg last Sunday at Greenford with the game finishing in 0-5 draw.
Still blowing away the cobwebs from last season the Gaels played well in spells with quite a numbers of new recruitments making their debuts.
Goal chances were plenty but both pure shooting and fine goalkeeping kept the game evenly balanced.
Best on the day were Paddy Callaghan, Niall Travers, Gary Kane and Benny O Reilly.
With two first half dismissals the juniors were always going to have an uphill battle against a more experienced St Josephs.
Going in at half time all square in the searing heat at Greenford, the young guns give their all and eventually went down by a score line of 0-18 to 3-4.
Credit to the entire panel and to manager Brian Corry for their gallant effort with there being better days to come.

The draw for the club Easter sevens was made last Sunday in the clubhouse, for full details check Irish newspapers or the club website.
The club would like to pass on our best wishes to two club stalwarts celebrating their 50th birthdays this weekend with a massive hooley in the Claddagh Ring this Friday.
Maurice Carr and Sean Mc Hugh have bowed to public demand to hold a party and they invite all club members and friends to come along and enjoy the free bar!!
