Tir Chonaill Gaels Club Notes - 3rd December 2012
The reserve team wrapped up their season last Sunday with victory in the league final against Saint Kiernans to complete the double for the first time since 2007 and winning the league for the 7th consecutive season.
The game was played in Mill Hill due to the poor condition of the pitches at Greenford but the venue made little difference as the lads dominated to finish the season unbeaten in all competitions.
Best on the day were Hugh Cunningham, Brendan Mc Atarnsay, Brendan Friel, Declan Alcorn and Ciaran Wall.
Final Score TCG 2-13, St Kiernans 1-7.
The under 21 team played their one and only game of the season last Saturday at the Scrubbs against Tara/Harlesden in the championship final.
The lads battled hard throughout the game but had to bow to the better team on the day by a score line of 1-10 to 1-3, best on the day was Philip Butler and Cormac Mc Garvey.
Dr Crokes of Killarney will be the clubs opposition in the All-Ireland QF after they beat Castlehaven in convincing style last Sunday in the Munster final.
So it’s all hands to the pump as the club prepares for its biggest game in recent years on Sunday 16th December at Ruislip.
