Down Memory Lane

100 years ago in 1914, Enniscrone ‘Owen Roes’ had the distinction of becoming the first Tireragh team to win the county Senior Football Championship. This talented side, who lost out in the 1913 final, won the title courtesy of a final win over Ballymote, and went on to claim the 1916 title as well. It is understood that Enniscrone wore Blue and White colour at the time. A picture of the team and further details are available on our Facebook page

We extend our sincere thanks to Raymond Carden, JP Carden, Eamonn O’Malley and Declan Hughes for putting forward their names as an alternative management team.

Compromise Rules

Best wishes to our own Marty Duffy who travels with the Irish Compromise Rules contingent to Australia today (Monday). Marty is a referee for this year’s series and is the first Sligo man to have done so since the competitions inception. Best wishes to everyone involved for this year’s series, and congrats to Marty on another fine achievement.

Thanks

As the playing season has now concluded, we extend our thanks to all those from u6 to intermediate who wore the black and amber jersey this year, and thank all those who helped in any way, shape or form in the running of our teams and club in 2014. Hopefully 2015 will bring further success.

100 year anniversary – did you know?

100 years ago in 1914, our club won its first Sligo SFC title under the Enniscrone banner. At the time, the GAA was in its early days, but our parish was blessed with some fine footballers and two further Senior titles came back to the parish soon after – in 1916 Enniscrone won their second title, and in 1929 Kilglass claimed their solitary title as a standalone team. We will endeavour to find more information on the 1914 team in the next few weeks – if you have any pictures or writings in regard to that team, please get in touch.

Blotto

There was no winner of last weekend’s Blotto jackpot of €1800 – the numbers drawn were 5, 30 and 36. €25 winners were Albert McHale, Patrick Moyles, Meabh Gallagher and Martina Loftus.

The inaugural surf and turf fun run passed off as a terrific success last Saturday afternoon in Quigabar. The weather held out and the course was widely acclaimed by our large number of participants, with a fine turnout making the day all the better.

A special thanks also to those who prepared our course and made it possible for this event to become a reality, as well as our competitors.

U14

Pride of place goes to our u14’s this week following their fantastic ‘B’ Championship final victory over Calry/St Joseph’s at Connolly Park, Collooney last Saturday afternoon. The final score was 5-9 to 3-5, but Calry/St Joseph’s were gallant for large periods and led with twenty minutes to go, but goals for us midway through the half from Gavin Duffy and Alan Duffy, to add to the three we scored in the first period, secured the title.

This was a tremendous performance from our lads, and is just rewards for their effort all year. They were unlucky to lose in the league shield final in July but they worked hard since to end the year with silverware. With many of the team underage again next year, hopefully these lads won’t have to wait too long for more success.

The team from Saturday was: Adam Mullaney; Dara Rouse, Daniel Devaney; Conal Duffy, Eoin Hallinan, Richard Grimes; Rian Grimes, Finn Nelson; Alan Duffy, Daniel Clarke, Gavin Duffy; Bradley Nealon, Niall O’Hara. Subs: Oisin Hynes, Lee Tuffy, Dylan Crean, Conor Cawley, Sean Feeney.

Minor


Congratulations to our minor panel and their management team on retaining the Minor ‘C’ Championship title following a hard-fought one point win over Owenmore Gaels at Markievicz Park last Saturday afternoon.

After a difficult first half our lads were five points down, but fought back with vigour to lead by a point going into injury time. However, Owenmore Gaels found a final score with the last kick of the game to send us into extra time.  Two goals in the first half of extra time proved crucial with Robert Grimes and Nathan Hannon on target, and Nathan Hannon’s point in the second period proved decisive as our lads held on for a one point win.

This was a tremendous effort from the entire tight-knit panel of players, and indeed from the management team of Brendan Murray, Ray Carden and Eugene Nelson. Congrats to all involved and we hope to see this bunch of players achieve success again as their careers within the club continues on to adult level.

Team: Gavin Hastings; Jason Morrison, Aaron Hannon; Neil Byrne, James Hannon; Dónal Mullaney(0-1, 1f), Nathan Hannon(1-6, 4f); Oisin McCaffrey(1-1), Mark Caffrey(0-1); Robert Grimes(1-2), Hugh Cawley(0-1, 1f) Subs: Daire O’Regan, Jack Kilcullen, Martin McManus, Brandon Fitzgerald, Darren Finnerty, Aaron Duffy, Mark O’Dowd Thomas Finnerty.
