Tir Chonaill Gaels Club Notes - 1st July 2013
London County Team:
Its being a hectic few weeks for the London footballers and with last weekend’s Connaught semi-final replay win over Leitrim in Roscommon, we take this opportunity to congratulate them all after this historic victory. The club would like to congratulate all our members who play and manage London including manager Paul Coggins and his assistant Kevin Downes. All those players that have being part and are selected on the 26 man squad for the replay including Philip Butler, Brian Collins, Mark Gottsche, Caolan Doyle, Barry Mitchell, Garry Magee, Eamon McConville, Eoin O’Neill, Gavin McEvoy, Cathal Magee and Aiden McTigue.
Only four weeks ago Mark Gottsche made history by being named the GPAs Player of the month for May, with his outstanding performance against Sligo and becoming the first London player ever to do so and only two weeks ago young Philip Butler was named on the Hoganstand and GAA “player of the week” teams. We congratulate both players on these wonderful achievements and hope that they continue this form over the remainder of the season.
The date, venue and opposition has all been confirmed now with a stampede guaranteed for booking flights and accommodation.
The final will be played in McHale Park, Castlebar on Sunday 21st July, contact Club Secretary Stephen Mc Loughlin for more details.
The reserve team played St Kiernans last Sunday at a Hot Greenford and had to battle hard to beat a determined
Kiernans by a scoreline of 1-7 to 0-8.
This Wednesday the junior team play Shalloe Pearses in a league match at Greenford with a 7-30pm throw-in.
On Sunday we play St Anthonys in the first round of the championship at Ruislip with a 3pm throw-in.
Support much appreciated for both of these games.
The club would like to pass on our congratulations to club stalwart JP O'Donnell on his recent engagement to girlfriend Paula Reid.
