New Year Wishes

Athbhlian faoi mhaise daoibh! A very Happy New Year to all of our players, members, supporters and friends all around the world. May 2016 be a successful and prosperous year for the club.

Married vs Singles

Our annual Married vs Singles Charity match was a huge success at Quigabar last Sunday afternoon. Plenty of people turned out to watch what was an interesting spectacle this year given the changes to the rules. The married team ran out winners once again, meaning the elder statesmen of the club have yet to lose! The club extends a huge thank you to everyone who took part and supported on the day. All funds raised will go towards the Sligo Cancer Support Centre – full details of the amount raised and pictures are available online.

Christmas wishes

The club wishes all of our players, members, supporters and friends both at home and abroad a very Happy Christmas. We hope you all enjoy the festive season.

Married vs Singles 2015

Our Married vs Singles Charity match is back for a sixth year in 2015, with the big game scheduled for Sunday, December 27th at 2.30pm in Quigabar. As always, we’ll donate all funds raised to charity with this year’s beneficiaries the Sligo Cancer Support Centre, who carry out great work countywide.

Some changes have been introduced for this year’s game – both teams will require two female players, two players in fancy dress, a priest or a politician, a local publican and an inter-county footballer, either past or present, from outside of Kilglass parish. Both sides are finalising preparations so expect a surprise or two on the day!

Some interesting managerial appointments were made for each side – Austin Tuffy will take charge of the singles, while Eamonn Walsh is the man tasked with guiding the married lads to another success.

This should mean an even more entertaining afternoon is in store, with all the usual craic and festive fun mixed in. It’s a day not to be missed, so make sure to spread the word and attend on the day in aid of a worthy cause!

Copies of the book will be available in local shops from this week at a very reasonable €10, and would make a great Christmas present for anyone parishioners at home or abroad.

Surf and Turf 2015

Last Saturday saw our second annual Surf and Turf Fun Run take place at Quigabar. Despite heavy rain on Friday, Saturday was a relatively dry day and all in all the event was a resounding success. Over 120 participants took art across both the 3k and 5k events, with a wide arrange of volunteers and spectators also on site. We extend our gratitude to everyone who contributed in any way to the day, in what was a superb display of community spirit. Pictures and results will be posted on our online platforms in the coming days, so keep your eyes peeled.

Well done

Well done to Marty Duffy on a fine performance as referee of last Sunday’s county senior final between St Mary’s and Curry. This was Marty’s fourth time taking charge of the marquee fixture in Sligo. Well done also to his umpires, two of which were from our club (Karl Finnerty and John P Kilgannon).

Also, congrats to former club player Aidan Caffrey who was honoured at half-time of the final as part of a remembrance of the Connacht Championship-winning Sligo team of 1975. Aidan, along with his brother Liam, had prolific careers with both Sligo and Enniscrone during the 1960s and 1970s, and are remembered as teak tough and talented defenders. Barnes Murphy, who played for the club for a time at the same time as the Caffreys, was also among the players honoured on Sunday. Well done to all.

U16


Congratulations to our U16 boys on winning the Division Three Championship last Tuesday evening, when they beat St John’s 3-12 to 1-7 at Markievicz Park. This is a fine ending to what has been a good year for the team, having reached both league and championship finals. While they missed out on the league title, there was never any doubt about the result last week when the lads put in a solid display to win by 11 points.


Well done to the management team of Marty Duffy, Declan Hughes, John Paul Carden and Mark Caffrey on a fine year. The panel was: Adam Mullaney, Niall Carden, Josh Ellis, Darren Finnerty, Finn Nelson, Rian Grimes, Eoin Hallinan, Ciaran O'Dowd, Jonathan Culkin, Gavin Duffy, Aaron Duffy, Daniel Clarke, Dara Rouse, Alan Duffy, Bradley Nealon, Jarlath McMahon, Conal Duffy, Jason Culkin, Richard Grimes.

U13

Our U13 boys lost to St Molaise Gaels in round two of the Feile competition last Wednesday. The team travel to take on Calry/St Joseph’s next Sunday morning at 11am in round three.

Congrats

The U16 win was the start of a great week for intermediate team stalwart John Paul Carden, because following Tuesday’s success he had a slightly more important assignment on Saturday – getting married! JP tied the knot with Caroline Conway on Saturday, and the happy couple and the wedding party made a pit-stop in Quigabar for photos on their big day. Congrats to both JP and Caroline, and we wish them a lifetime of happiness together.  

Congrats are also in order for Aaron Hannon, Robert Grimes and all at Team AIB Racing, after they finished third in the world in the F1 in Schools competition. This is a remarkable achievement for the lads and one they can be very, very proud of. Aaron also won a Ranstad Williams Academy scholarship to round off a remarkable trip to Singapore.

Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 13th September 2015

Intermediate

The 2015 championship came to a disappointing end for our intermediate team last Sunday afternoon, when neighbours Castleconnor emerged as 0-10 to 0-6 winners in the quarter-final tie played at Markievicz Park. This was a low-scoring and intense affair, with both sides giving their all. Having been 0-3 to 0-2 down at half-time, our lads started well in the second half and went 0-5 to 0-4 ahead with 20 minutes to go. However, Castleconnor finished stronger to enter the final four. Our boys will rue their unusual inaccuracy in front of goal which was evident for much of the hour. Thus the season is now at an end, and the club wishes to acknowledge the huge effort put in by the panel of players and the management team. Hopefully 2016 will end in better circumstances.


Back row, from L-R: Shane Hargadon, Michael John Crean, Cillian O'Dowd, Keith Mullaney, Greg Regan, Michael Connolly, Cathal Mullaney, Robert Jacob, Keith Carden, Daniel Breslin, Kevin Carden, John Paul Carden, Brendan Byron, Nathan Hannon, Brian Coleman.

Front row, L-R: Mark O'Hara, Cian Mulrooney, Kevin Cawley, Eamon Gilroy, Liam Varley, Declan Cawley, Aidan Morrison, Michael Moyles, Mark O'Dowd, Tom Mahon, Hugh Cawley, Mark Caffrey, Shane Morrison

Minor

Our minor boys also saw their 2015 season come to an end when they lost to Coolera/Strandhill by a point, 2-7 to 1-9, in their shield semi-final last week. Unfortunately, the team has been severely depleted for much of the season but thanks to Brendan and all the lads for their efforts throughout the year.

U-16

Our U-16 lads will look to end the season with silverware when they take on St John’s in the Division Three championship final at 6.15pm in Markievicz Park on Tuesday evening. Best wishes to everyone involved. Please support if possible.

Despite some mistakes in the first half the lads led 1-7 to 1-4 at the break, and pushed on after the interval to score eight points without reply to secure a vital win. Attention now turns to an important meeting with neighbours Easkey next Saturday evening at 6.30pm in Quigabar in round four. Please support if you can.

Minor

A superb comeback from our minor boys ensured a draw against Drumcliffe/Rosses Point last Thursday in the opening round of the championship. The game finished at 6-10 apiece, after our lads were 3-10 to 0-7 down at half-time. The team have no game this week, so training continues.

Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 9th August 2015

Intermediate

The intermediate team dug out a vital win in the Intermediate Championship with a 0-10 to 1-5 win over St Farnan’s at Quigabar last Sunday afternoon. A very poor opening period with the wind saw our lads trail by four points at the break (1-5, 0-4), but a super second half display, where we kept St Farnan’s scoreless and scored six points of our own ensured victory. That is the team’s second successive win in the championship and means they are joint top of the table with three games remaining. Next weekend, Castleconnor are the visitors to Quigabar for a league game. Time and day are TBC, keep an eye on our Facebook page for details.

Overall, the day was a huge success with 24 teams taking part and everyone enjoying the wonderful course. Winners of the first prize of four All-Ireland football final tickets plus accommodation were Ray Basquill, Derek Basquill, John Rush and former club footballer Padraig Tighe. All in all, the day was a great success and great credit is due to coordinator Tom McManus who put a lot of work into organising the day. Thanks also to our huge array of sponsors for their support, it is much appreciated.

Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 28th June 2015

Intermediate

The intermediate team got their championship campaign off to a winning start with a hard-earned 0-13 to 0-6 win over Cloonacool at Cloonacool Community Park last Sunday evening. Against a well-organised home side our lads were made work hard for scores, and led by only three points at half-time. However, a strong second half display saw the team over the line. Well done to Cloonacool for having their grounds in fine condition and for the post-match refreshments, which was a great gesture. Due to Sligo’s involvement in the Connacht final and subsequently the All-Ireland series, it’s unlikely that any further club championship action will take place until mid-August.

Minor/U-16

Our minor and u-16 teams are back in full training following the conclusion of the state exams. All players please attend as championship season is fast approaching.

U-14

Commiserations to our u-14 team who lost out to Calry/St Joseph’s in the Division Two Shield final last Wednesday evening at Scarden. An uncharacteristically poor opening half display meant the lads were 4-6 to 0-1 down at the break, but a much improved second half saw the lads battle back to within six points. However, the winners netted twice late on, and won out 8-9 to 5-6. Nonetheless, the lads can reflect on a very competitive league campaign and will harbour hopes of a long summer in the championship. Well done to all on their efforts so far.

U-12

Result of the week goes to our u-12 footballers who beat neighbours Easkey 0-37 to 0-2 in the final round of the league last week. Well done to everyone on a superb display of scoring. The result puts the team into the top four, but other results this week will dictate where the lads finish in the table.

County scene

Best wishes to Mark O’Dowd and the Sligo minor team in their Connacht Championship semi-final with Roscommon this Friday evening. Mark put in a very good display at corner-back last weekend as the team overcame Leitrim 4-8 to 0-12 in the quarter-final.

Golf Classic

Our bi-annual golf classic is fast approaching on July 17th at Enniscrone Golf Club. Sponsorship opportunities are available for any businesses wishing to sponsor the event. A team of four costs €120, with first prize four All-Ireland final tickets along with accommodation in a hotel for the weekend.

U-14

The u-14 team put in a workmanlike display to qualify for the Division Two shield final courtesy of a 2-13 to 1-5 win over St Mary’s at Quigabar last Wednesday. After a rather poor first half the home side only held a one-point advantage but pressed on in the second half to secure a spot in the final.

Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 24th May 2015

Intermediate

The intermediate team secured an important win in Division Two of the Senior Football League last Sunday with a hard-fought four-point win over St Michael’s at Quigabar. Level at 0-7 apiece at the break, Robert Jacob’s second half goal proved pivotal as the lads finished strongly to secure the two points on offer. One game now remains in the league, but at this juncture it is unclear as to when it will take place. The intermediate championship is set to get underway on June 28th.

U-16

Our u-16 footballers suffered defeat in the Division Three league final last Monday evening. Bunninadden ran out 2-12 to 3-4 winners on an atrocious evening at the Sligo GAA Centre of Excellence at Scarden. Unfortunately, our boys never got going and will be disappointed with their performance, but will reflect on a satisfactory campaign and build again for the championship. The team was: Justin McMahon; Niall Carden, Josh Ellis; Jonathan Culkin, Eoin Hallinan, Richard Grimes; Finn Nelson, Rian Grimes; Darren Finnerty, Steven Hannon (0-1), Ciaran O’Dowd (0-2, 1f); Bradley Nealon (3-0), Aaron Duffy (0-1).

Intermediate

The intermediate secured an important two points in Division Two of the Senior Football League with a 0-13 to 5-9 win over St Farnan’s at Templeboy last Sunday.

Next week’s round of games have been postponed to a later date, so the team are out again when they travel to play Geevagh the following weekend.

The minor team were beaten by Castleconnor last Thursday in Corballa after a very disappointing display. The lads meet Ballymote tomorrow (Monday) and a win would see them through to the semi-final of the league. Good luck lads.

Nonetheless, the team is in a good position in the table and they will hope to get back on track versus Curry on May 15th.

Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 26th April 2015

Intermediate

The intermediate team fell to a first home loss of the year when neighbours Easkey emerged as 2-13 to 6-7 winners at Quigabar last Sunday afternoon. An uncharacteristically lethargic opening half display contrasted a much better second period from our boys, with the concession of six goals over the hour an obvious worry. However, the lads will take heart from a strong second half, in which they scored 2-12 to Easkey’s 2-3, and will hope to carry that form into next Sunday’s clash with St Farnan’s at 3pm in Templeboy. Support as always is appreciated and thanks to those who came out last Sunday.

Minor

The minor boys put in a good display to defeat Coolaney/Mullinabreena 6-9 to 1-7 last Thursday evening, and will hope for a similar result when they play Castleconnor in Corballa this coming Thursday at 7pm. The team currently occupies second position in Division Two.

U-16

The final group game of the Division Three league for our u-16s takes place on Monday, April 26th at 7pm in Quigabar versus St Michael’s. The team is top of the table at the moment and a win will seal a final spot.

Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 13th April 2015

Intermediate

 

Despite a battling second half display our intermediate suffered a five point loss at the hands of Shamrock Gaels in Coola last Sunday afternoon, 1-11 to 1-6. Trailing by five points at the break, the lads reduced the deficit to two points by the 55th minute but the home side tagged on three late insurance points to secure the win. Again, there were plenty of positive for our boys and they will hope to secure a first league win when they host Cloonacool in Quigabar this Sunday at 2pm.

Minor/U-16

Both the minor and u-16 teams have a break from competitive action this week. Training continues in preparation for the latter stages of the league.

U-14

Our u-14s are unbeaten after two games in the Division Two league following a 0-13 to 7-11 win over Castleconnor last Friday evening at Corballa. This well-rounded team display was the best produced by the lads so far this year, and they will look for further improvement when they meet Tourlestrane in a couple of weeks.

U-12

The U-12 boys get their season underway on Tuesday evening (April 14th) with an away tie against Geevagh at 7pm. Best wishes to Michael, Paddy and the panel of players for the year ahead.

Minor

The minor team lost to Easkey in the opening round of the Division Two league last Thursday evening, 0-8 to 2-8 the final score.

Next Tuesday, the boys will hope to get off the mark when they play Ballymote in Corran Park at 6.30pm.

U-16

Well done to our U-16 team on going top of the Division Three league following a well-earned 3-8 to 1-7 win over Bunninadden at Quigabar last Friday evening.

U-14

Our U-14s played out an exciting 4-11 to 7-2 draw with Easkey last Wednesday evening.

Nonetheless, the team will look to secure their first win when they host Castleconnor in Quigabar next Friday at 6.30pm.

The intermediate team fell to a 1-12 to 0-8 defeat to St Patrick’s in the opening round of the Division Two league last Sunday.

Nonetheless, there were plenty of positives and the team will hope to show similar endeavour next week when they take on old rivals Easkey in the Benson Cup – throw in is at 3.45pm next Saturday afternoon.

Congrats also to our u14, minor and intermediate teams on receiving their medals for winning county titles in 2014.

Overall, the evening was a great success and we now look forward to 2015 which will hopefully bring more success.

On Sunday, December 28th we held our annual charity married vs singles match at Quigabar.
