U14 Girls Semi Final

U12 Girls Semi Final
Athlone 4-03 Goldsmith Girls 1-02
Last Tuesday evening our U12 girls secured their place in the final of the 2019 championship competition after a hard fought encounter with near neighbours, Goldsmith Girls. In difficult conditions, the Athlone outfit overcame a tenacious opposition and through a committed display where defences were to the fore throughout. The key difference between both sides was Athlone’s ability to capitalise on rare opportunities presented and a great shift put in by their defensive sextet. This was the third meeting this year between Goldsmith Girls and Athlone and with honours even from the two previous encounters there was an added impetus in establishing the local pecking order.
Final score line on the evening: Athlone 3-4; Goldsmith Girls 1-2. At time of writing we are awaiting confirmation of final opponents following the other semi-final between Loughnavalley and Coralstown/Kinnegad. The final is scheduled to take place on the weekend of the 21/22 September.

Club Notes - 9th September

posted 10 Sep 2019, 09:50 by Athlone GAA

Athlone U9’s host Barna and Clann na nGael.

The future would appear bright for the three clubs which took part in an U9 blitz in Pairc Chiaran on Sunday morning.  Athlone welcomed our neighbours from across the Shannon, Clann na NGael and the men from just west of Galway city, Barna.

Each club fielded two ten-a-side teams and the determination and skill shown by all was a joy to behold. Each game was evenly contested and the only winner on the day was football.  For Athlone it was a pleasure to have such good young footballers from Roscommon and Galway come and test their skills against us on our home soil. Athlone and Clann na nGael have a long established relationship in terms of underage blitzes and long may it continue.  Former Coosan NS principal Michael Lydon was in charge of Barna and not surprisingly they were a well drilled and talented side.

From an Athlone point of view it was evident that great progress is being made by this group of players. Practice makes perfect and the more time these young men practise their catching and kicking (especially at home!) the better they will become.  All players and parents were treated to some well-deserved refreshments in the clubhouse afterwards.  The good behaviour and manners of all the young men, both on the field and in the clubhouse afterwards, was something their parents should be rightly proud of.

A big ‘Thank You’ to the 20 plus volunteers who worked hard on Sunday morning in car-parks, kitchens and on pitches to ensure the blitz ran smoothly and to those who brought food etc. Much appreciated.

Our U8’s and U10’s host St Lomans, Mullingar next Saturday morn in another ‘Go Games’ blitz. Details to be confirmed.

Athlone Blues- Rory Slevin, Antonio Canton-Quinn, Liam Ambrose, Cian Mannion, Paddy Stokes, Daniel Donegan, Fearghal Kelly, Micheal Cunningham, Harry Cunningham, Jack Costello, Evan Martin-Cummins.

Athlone Whites- Cillian Silke, Sean Collins, Caimin Gunning, Isaac Mulvihill-Wilkins, Sam Meegan, Ruairi Nicholson, Conor McEnroe, Aodhan Fallon, Frank Pettit, Sachin Sundaresen, Fionn Macken, Joe Sullivan, Conor Johnson.

Boys U14 Championship

Congratulations to our u14 squad who had a hard fought win against Millmore Gaels on Thursday last in the Championship. Trailing by 7 points with 10 minutes to go the lads dug deep and never gave up and came out with a fantastic victory. Credit must go to both sets of players on a superb game of football. Up next are St Lomans in the final round.

Congratulations

Congratulations to the Westmeath Camogie team who won the All-Ireland Intermediate Championship after a superb second half comeback against Galway in the final in Croke Park on Sunday. Well done to everybody involved and best of luck in Senior Championship next year.

Congratulations also to Tom and Paschal and all the crew in The Bounty who celebrated 10 years in business recently. Thanks for all the support you’ve given to the club over the years and best of luck for the next 10 years and beyond.

Athlone GAA Club Notes - 27th August

posted 27 Aug 2019, 11:10 by Athlone GAA

JFC Group 3:
Athlone 4-14 Coralstown-Kinnegad 1-9
A flurry of early goals from the full-forward line of Sam Omukoro (2), Richie Greene and Dylan Lynch set our juniors on the road to a comfortable win over a game Coralstown-Kinnegad side in their Junior Championship Group 3 Round 3 clash played in Kinnegad on Friday night.  These early goals, along with points from the Deba Okodugha and Emmet Collins, helped Athlone to a 4-5 to 1-5 half time lead, and further points from Joe Fallon, Eoin Jordan, Michael Byrne Tadhg Prendergast and David Fagan kept daylight between the sides, although they were grateful to young keeper Rytis Liaukecivius who pulled off a string of fine saves throughout the second half to prevent the home side from getting back into the match.

Athlone:  Rytis Liaukevicius, Shane Galvin, Andy Lynam, Rory Donnellan, Eoin Jordan (0-1), Emmet Collins (0-1), Niall Doolan, David Fagan (0-1), Michael Byrne (0-1), Conor Rushe, Joe Fallon (0-2), Deba Okodugha (0-1), Dylan Lynch (1-1), Sam Omukoro (2-1), Richie Greene (1-4)  Subs Used: Tadhg Prendergast (0-1), Aidan St John.

Athlone 6-13 Tubberclair 1-14
Our junior men made it two wins from two over the weekend when they accounted for Tubberclair in Tubberclair on Sunday evening, although the final result was flattering for the visitors, who were second-best for long periods of the opening half.  Just as against Kinnegad two days previously, early goals from Sam Omukoro and Richie Greene their side an ideal start, but the home side dominated most of the half as they punished Athlone defensive indiscipline with a succession of pointed frees.  Indeed, it took several good saves from sub goalkeeper Conor Devaney, who replaced the injured Rytis Liaukecivius early on, and a third major from midfielder Patrick Munnelly to give Athlone a fortuitous four-point lead at the break, 3-4 to 0-9.

The visitors began the second half with much more purpose and teamwork and points from Richie Greene (0-3), Enda Daly (0-2) and Joe Fallon stretched the lead to 10 before Tubberclair opened their account.  A coolly taken fourth goal from Niall Doolan made the game safe, while two more excellent strikes from Richie Greene to complete his hat-trick late-on put a gloss on the scoreline as Athlone eventually ran out 14 point winners on a scoreline of 6-13 to 1-14.

Athlone:  Rytis Liaukevicius, Shane Galvin, Andy Lynam, Rory Donnellan, Eoin Jordan, Emmet Collins, Niall Doolan (1-0), Patrick Munnelly (1-0), Michael Byrne, Enda Daly (0-2), Joe Fallon (0-3), Deba Okodugha, Dylan Lynch, Sam Omukoro (1-1), Richie Greene (3-6)  Subs Used: Conor Devaney, Shay Byrne, Cathal Joyce (0-1).

Playoff
The above results mean that Athlone finish runners-up in Group 3 and so will play the winners of Group 4, St Loman’s, in the first round of the playoffs.  This match is scheduled for 7pm on Thursday evening in Tubberclair so please come out and support the lads in this crucial game.
U14 Boys
Congratulations to our u14 squad on a great win in the championship away to Moate - Result : Athlone 4-24 Moate 4-08. Up next are Millmore Gaels at home in 2 weeks time. Well done lads

U10/U8 Boys
Athlone u8s and u10s made the short journey last Saturday morning to Caulry for a blitz with Castleday, Tubberclair and Garrycastle also in attendance.  The fine weather was matched by some wonderful performances on the pitch with determination and skill on display in equal measure by both the u8s and u10s.

Many thanks to all parents/guardians and players who travelled to make the blitz possible. Thank you also to Caulry for their usual hospitality and a very enjoyable morning. Training continues for both groups on Wednesdays at 6:30pm and 11:30am on Sunday mornings. New players are always welcome.

U12 Football

Our U12 footballers played Maryland-Tang in a pulsating local Derby on Tuesday evening last. Three first half goals had Athlone leading at the interval on a scoreline of 3-00 to 0-08. Maryland up the tempo in the second half and took the lead midway through the half. However Athlone did not give in and a fine goal from Adam Casey put them back in the driving seat with a few minutes to play. However deep in injury time Maryland-Tang centre back stormed up the field to stick the ball to the back of the net and level matters. From the resulting kickout the ref blew it up. A super display from this bunch of players with noticeable performances from Christian O’Brien, Shane Killian, Jack Larkin and Adam Casey. Well done to all players who took part on the evening.

U14 Leinster Feile

Pairc Chiarian hosted and participated in an U14 Leinster Feile Blitz on Saturday. Teams who participated on the day were Sarsfields and Skerries Harps from Dublin, Killoe from Longford and our close neighbours Tubberclair.

Well done to everyone who helped out on what proved a very successful day in the club. A big thanks also to all the parents who supplied a great selection of food for all the visiting teams, it was greatly appreciated.  Thanks as always to Padraig Devaney, Photographer - see Athlone GAA Official facebook page for photos.

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.

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).

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
