ACFL Division 1:

Athlone 4-8 Shandonagh 1-17

Our senior team will play in Division 2 of next year’s All County Football League, after being relegated following a draw with Shandonagh in their final league game, played in Shandonagh on Sunday morning.  see match report on left....

Boys U10 St Lomans Tournament

Well done to our u10s boys who competed in the U10 St Loman’s Tournament last weekend. With three great wins in the group stages the lads topped their group and progressed to the cup semi-final where they met a strong St Lomans side. The boys were unlucky to come out on the losing end in what was a great game of football. Every player showed great sportsmanship and commitment and were a credit to their club and their parents. The future is bright for this group of players.

U14 Division 1 League – Athlone 2-11 Millmore Gaels 0-09

Our final league game in Ballymore proved to be our toughest challenge to date. A win for either side would see them progress to the league final. Athlone started the game well and were 3 points to the good midway through the first half, however Millmore hit back and finished the half very strong and went in at the interval 2 points up on a scoreline of 0-08 to 1-03. The second half proved to be Athlone’s best 30 minutes of the year to date. Some fantastic defending limited Millmore to just one point in the second half and this proved to be the backbone to a great victory. The all-important second goal came 15 minutes from time and proved to be the score that put the tie to bed. This was a superb display and sets the lads up for a league final appearance versus St Lomans on Saturday 15th June at 2pm in Cusack Park. Best of luck in the final and all support would be greatly appreciated.

​​​​​U12 Go Games v St Josephs

The Athlone U12 boys played St. Joseph’s on Wednesday the 29th May. It was a very sporting game and both teams played well. Our lads played with the support of a very strong wind in the 1st half, and went in at the break a few points up. The wind died down in the 2nd half and it made for more entertaining free flowing football. It was a great team performance throughout the game, where Gary Prendergast played well in goals with excellent kickouts, Philip Heavey was prominent in defence where he was always in front of his man and creating opportunities when in possession. Cillian Donlon showed well in attack and his distribution of the ball was excellent in creating scoring opportunities for team mates. The team was as follows: Gary Prendergast, Rory McMickan, Aaron Hardiman, Shane Killian, Jack Larkin, Philip Heavey, Darragh Lough, Adam Casey, Kyle Mahon, Conor Lough, Senan Snow, Cillian Donlon, Joshua Ukatu

Congratulations

A big congratulations to Southern Gaels U14s who made it all the way to the all-Ireland final in their Division in the U14 Hurling Feile last weekend in Cork. Unfortunately luck was not on their side in the final, however this is an amazing achievement and everyone at Athlone GAA club wish them all the best for the future.

ACFL Div 3

Athlone 2-14 Killucan 3-10

 Our Division 3 team made it two weekend wins for our men’s teams when they pipped Killucan in an exciting contest played in Páirc Chiaráin on Saturday evening.  Despite missing some regulars due to hurling commitments, this was Killucan’s senior team so it was an excellent win for a young Athlone, many of whom had featured against The Downs 24 hours earlier.

 Conor Rushe marked his adult debut for the club by opening the scoring with a neatly-taken point, but Killucan responded with a goal and quickly added three frees to open up an early five-point lead.  At this stage, it looked like it would be a long night for the Athlone lads, but Rushe brought them back into the game with a nice solo score, before three superb points from Benny Martin, in his first appearance of the year, reduced the gap to the minimum.  A Richie Greene free brought Athlone level, and a long-distance Shane Allen effort looked like giving the home side a surprise half-time lead, but they conceded another soft goal straight from the subsequent kick-out to trail by 2-3 to 0-7 at the break.

 Two more long-range Shane Allen scores, either side of a Killucan free, brought Athlone back to within a point, and they regained the lead when Mark Egan fisted to the net from close range to finish off a brilliant team move.  This lead didn’t last long, however, as the visitors replied with a pointed free, followed by their third goal, to restore their two-point advantage.  Fortunately, as in the Division 1 game on Friday night, Athlone were able to bring in quality replacements from the bench, which helped as Killucan tired.  A brace of Richie Greene frees levelled things up again, and despite briefly falling behind to another Killucan point, further scores from Martin, Greene and Andy Lynam put Athlone two points ahead, 1-14 to 3-6, as the game entered its closing stages.  Killucan fought back with to level things up with a few minutes to play, but when Athlone struck for their second goal, a powerful finish from Darren Costello after another great move, it looked like they had done enough to earn their first win of the campaign.  The visitors had other ideas though and fought back with two very late points, before earning the chance to snatch a draw when they won a free from the 45 with was to be the last kick of the game.  Luckily for the hosts, this free dropped short meaning Athlone hung to win their first game of the campaign by the narrowest of margins, 2-14 to 3-10.

 Athlone:  Conor Devaney, Shane Galvin, James Finlass, Daniel Lynam, Andy Lynam (0-1), Fergal Murray, Niall Doolan, David Fagan, Patrick Munnelly, Mark Egan (1-0), Shane Allen (0-3), Conor Rushe (0-2), Richie Greene (0-4), Benny Martin (0-4), Donagh Prendergast Subs Used:  Declan Byrne, Eoin Maher, Kieran Colclough, Darren Costello (1-0).

U14 Division 1 – Athlone 5-19 v Mullingar Shamrocks 4-10

Our u14s produced their best performance of the year to win an enthralling game of football in Mullingar. Athlone got off to a blistering start with a goal inside 10 seconds. However Shamrocks hit back and on the 15 minute mark were 4 points to the good. Athlone finished the half strong and the sides were deadlocked at 3-05 to 2-08 at half time. Just like the first half Athlone hit the back of the net straight from the throw in. The game was tightly contested throughout and they were some great battles all over the field. Some fantastic point scoring edged Athlone in front at the midway mark of the second half and they never looked back finishing the game very strong. This was a super team effort and sets them up with a final game v Millmore, a win will secure a Division 1 final place. A big thanks to all the parents and familes who travelled over and gave lifts. 

 U12 Go Games

Our U12’s Boys played Cill Óige in Castledaly on Wednesday the 15th. Considering the heat of the evening both teams played some really good free flowing football.

Our team showed great determination and support for each other (from Conor Lough in goals right up to the forward line) and competed for each ball right to the final whistle.  Our defence were tenacious in the tackle and Rory McMickan and Adam Casey were excellent throughout.  Our attack was very dangerous when in front of goal and took their points with great accuracy.

The team line up was as follows:  Conor Lough, Aaron Hardiman, Rory Mcmickan, Adam Casey, Philip Heavey, Kyle Mahon, Darragh Lough, Jack Larkin, Daniel Tierney, Cillian Donlon, Gary Prendergast

We would like to thank the players and management team associated to Cill Oige (Castledaly and Rosemount amalgamation) for a very sporting and fun game of football.

U10 St Lomans Tournament

Our u10 team have been invited to take part in the U10 St Loman’s Tournament on the Monday of the June Bank Holiday Weekend (10th). This is a very well organised tournament and we were unlucky not to win the final last year. Hopefully we can go one step further this year. Further details will issue by text.

Round 2              

Westmeath U12 Girls League   

Athlone 4-9 Goldsmith Girls 1-5

 

Athlone under 12 Girls followed up on their first round win over Caulry with a committed a skillful performance against Goldsmith Girls in Pairc Chiarán last week.  In what was a free-flowing and sporting encounter, the Athlone squad ultimately came out on top despite the committed efforts of Athlone's near neighbours.

Anchored by midfielders Gemma Mannion and Ceara Dwyer, Athlone weathered early pressure from the opposition and gradually played their way into a commanding position from which they didn't look back.  At the back, 'keeper' Ciara White snuffed out Goldsmith's forays forward, while the backs division of Sarah Costello, Sammy Okodugha, Sally-Ann Joyce and Emma Boyle ensured that the Goldsmith threat was contained expertly throughout.

As the game progressed, the expert support play of Áine Martin came more to the fore as the Athlone Girls continue to press their advantage.  Up front, Athlone's attack added to the team performance by capitalising on the platform provided by midfield. Emma Killian, Claire McNamara and Ruby O'Leary were committed and tenacious in exchanges with the opposition while Ellie Denby, Sadie Gaffey, Alisha and Ciara White all contributed significantly to what was an excellent overall team performance.

Athlone will play St Joseph's in the next round on Tue 07 May in Pairc Chiarán at 7pm

Athlone Team:  Ciara White; Sarah Costello; Sammy Okodugha; Sally-Ann Joyce; Emma Boyle; Áine Martin; Ceara Dwyer; Gemma Mannion; Ellie Denby; Emma Killian; Claire McNamara; Ruby O'Leary; Sadie Gaffey; Alisha White

U14 Division 1 – Athlone v Garrycastle

Our u14s team made the short trip on May Day to play Garrycastle in the U14 league. Athlone proved too strong for their opposition and ran out comfortable winners. The highlight of the evening was the superb team play throughout. Well done to all 20 players who fielded. That’s 3 wins from 4 and their next outing is versus Moate at home on May 7th. Best of luck.

Team: Ben Manning, Cillian McGowan, Luke O’Connell, Jeffrey Idahosa, Own McNamara, Luke Whelan, Shane Wheatley, Cathal Hardiman, Josh Kenny, Piaras Rohan, Luke Nicholson, Dano McMonagle, Kian Mitchell, Tiernan Mitchell, Daniel Omokoro, Jason Rushe, Ciaran Finlay, Ian Rushe, Conor Hughes.

Club Notes - Monday, 29th April 2019

posted 30 Apr 2019, 13:18 by Athlone GAA


ACFL Division 1:

Athlone 1-18 Tyrrellspass 1-13

Our seniors gained their first points of the 2019 league campaign when an impressive performance away to Tyrrellspass gave them their first win of the season after an entertaining game played in chilly conditions in Tyrrellspass on Saturday evening.

The sides were level 0-3 apiece after an evenly-matched opening 10 minutes, with Athlone’s scores coming from Eoin Maher, Ryan Gaffey and Josh Beaumont, before three points in five minutes from a Kieran Colclough free, Jordan Marshment and Gaffey again gave Athlone a lead that they would not relinquish.  With the visiting defence very disciplined in marshalling the threat of the Tyrrellspass attack, three further points from the impressive Gaffey and another Colclough free, followed by a Jack Quinn goal from close range gave Athlone a 1-10 to 0-6 half-time lead.

After the hosts had opened the second half scoring in the first minute, Jack Quinn was unlucky not to add a second goal when his effort from a tight angle came back off the crossbar, but two more Gaffey points stretched Athlone’s lead.  However, just as it looked like they were set for a comfortable victory, a fumble in the small square after a 45 had dropped short let Tyrrellspass in for a goal which brought them right back into the match.  Danny Reid responded for Athlone with an excellent point, but two further Tyrellspass points reduced the gap to just four with 15 minutes still to play.  A fisted effort from Jack Quinn gave Athlone some breathing space but the home side had the bit between their teeth and scores from influential forwards Ger Egan and Denis Glennon brought them back to within three with five minutes remaining.  A fine score from Richie Greene after a quick counter-attack looked to have made the game safe for Athlone, but another Tyrrellspass free had just one score between them as the game entered injury time.  As they went looking for the equalising goal, they forced a 45 that dropped dangerously into the Athlone goalmouth, but the Athlone defence held firm and launched another counter-attack that ended with a Josh Beaumont point that finally guaranteed the win.  After Athlone turned over the subsequent quick kickout, Ryan Gaffey fittingly had the last word with his ninth point of the game to give his side a deserved five point win on a final score of 1-18 to 1-13.

 Next up for Athlone is a crucial game against reigning County Champions Mullingar Shamrocks in Pairc Chiarain on Friday evening, with the throw-in provisionally scheduled for 7.30pm.  Our Division 3 team then travel to Mullingar to take on Shamrocks on Saturday, again at 7.30pm, while our Division 6 team are due to play neighbours Garrycastle in Garrycastle on Sunday morning with an 11.30am start.

 Athlone:  Paul Bannon, Danny Lynam, Matthew Darling, James Finlass, Eoin Maher (0-1), Diarmuid Martin, Fergal Murray, Jordan Marshment (0-1), Danny Reid (0-1), Ryan Gaffey (0-9), Jack Quinn (1-1), Noel Mulligan, Josh Beaumont (0-2), Kieran Colcough (0-2), Donagh Prendergast Subs Used:  Andy Lynam, Damien Kelly, Richie Greene (0-1), Sean Dowd.

 

U10 Boys

ACFL Division 1:
Athlone 1-9 Tang 0-20

Our seniors suffered their third defeat of this year’s league campaign when they were beaten by an in-form Tang side in this round four fixture played in Tang in perfect conditions on Sunday morning..  Athlone got off to a dream start with a Josh Beaumont goal straight from the throw-in, but the home side settled and struck some fine scores to lead by 0-7 to 1-2 after 15 minutes, with Athlone’s points coming from two superbly-struck placed balls from Kieran Colclough.  The visitors were then dealt a blow when Diarmuid Martin was sent off after receiving a yellow and black card in quick succession, but they restricted Tang to just two points in the second quarter and another Kieran Colclough free left three points between the sides at the break, 0-9 to 1-3 in Tang’s favour.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, Athlone more than held their own in the opening stages of the second period, and two excellent scores each from Mark Egan and Kieran Colclough meant that they trailed by just two, 0-12 to 1-7, at the midway point of the half.  However, just as had happened at the same stage of the opening period, Athlone’s numbers were reduced even further when James Finlass was dismissed for a second yellow card.  With a two-man disadvantage, Athlone were unable to contain the home side’s attack and Tang added several late scores to run out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 0-20 to 1-9.


Westmeath Senior Footballers:
Congratulations to Noel Mulligan and the Westmeath Senior Football team who gained promotion from Division 3 to Division 2 of the Allianz League with a hard-fought draw against Louth in Drogheda on Saturday.  Best of luck to Noel and the lads in the Division 3 Final versus Laois in Croke Park next Saturday afternoon, April 6th (throw-in at 4.45pm).

U14 League – Division 1

Athlone: 5-15   St Loman’s: 1-00

Well done to our U14 side on their second outing in the U14 Westmeath League. A fantastic display from the throw-in set the tone for the evening. Played on the all-weather pitch in St Lomans, Athlone settled well and had 1-5 on the board after 14 minutes, Lomans hit back with a goal but this would prove to be their only score of the game with a fantastic performance from all our defensive lines. Playing with a strong breeze in the first half Athlone went in leading 3-11 to 1-0 at half time. Against the elements in the second half, conditions proved more difficult but a goal inside the first 10 minutes put the lads on course for a superb victory. All 19 players made a great impact on the game and contributed to a very worthy victory. Up next are Coralstown/Kinnegad on Thursday 4th April at 6.30pm in Pairc Chiarain. The squad and management would also like to wish team member Kyle Greene a speedy recovery following surgery after breaking a finger in a recent schools basketball game.

ACFL:
Our senior men's Division 1 match away to neighbours Garrycastle was called off on Sunday morning, when Garrycastle's pitch was deemed unplayable after the heavy overnight rain.  It wasn't possible to transfer the game to Páirc Chiaráin as all pitches were in use for underage training so it will be rescheduled for a later date.  On Saturday afternoon, our Division 3 team took on St Malachys in Castletown-Geoghegan and the depleted squad put in another good performance against the hosts' first team, before going down on a scoreline of 1-16 to 1-10.  The next round of men's league fixtures is scheduled for the weekend of March 22nd-24th, when we are scheduled to play Coralstown-Kinnegad at home in Division 1 and Moate All-Whites at home in Division 3, with the start times and dates to be confirmed in due course.
