PEIL FAOI 12: (i) The Lee Strand County League campaign began in Kenmare on Sunday evening last where our A and B teams were in action. We had a very large travelling party which was a credit to both parents and players. Excellent displays were the order of the day and everything that was learned in the training pitches over the past 3 months was put into practise by our warriors. The work rate and movement of our A team ensured that they were victorious against our hosts on a scoreline of 5-22 to 2-6. An-bhua go deo! Everyone, from cúl báire to corner forward, gave of their very best and they were a credit to the Black’n’Amber right from the first whistle. (ii) Our B team engaged in a titanic battle with their Kenmare counterparts right from the ‘off’ and the lead changed hands regularly. A couple of late scores, faraor agus ochón agus mo bhrón, saw the boys from Neidín come out on top…….4-11 to 3-8. Beidh lá eile ag an bPaorach! A huge ‘thanks’ to all parents and players who travelled in great numbers and to the mentors who continue to give great time and commitment to the squad. Bheadh sibh uile molta dá mbeimis inár dtost! (iii) We were in action against Scartaglin in Monday evening in Division 9 and our braves aquitted themselves with distinction. (iv) Our lads can look forward to 3 more matches this weekend.

CORN AN RUISÉALAIGH: Comhghairdeachas le Damien McLoughlin and his CBS team on their fine victory in the Russell Cup competition. The Green had a great win in a brilliant game of football between two good teams. The four Rock lads played very well…..Josh Lynch dominated midfield, scored a fine goal and popped over three lovely points. Togor Silong and Enda Cahill (the late John Galvin’s nephew) kicked a point each in the forwards and Donncha Sayers (yes, son of Denis) was the very impressive leader of the full forward line and he scored four points. The Street of Champions was well represented.

GAELTACHT SCHOLARSHIP? The GAA and Coláistí Chorca Dhuibhne are offering Gaeltacht scholarships to members (ages 12 to 17 years) of GAA clubs. These scholarships will enable club members to attend Irish language courses in the Corca Dhuibhne (West Kerry) Gaeltacht during the summer holidays. Over the years, many young members of The Rock Club were on these Cúrsaí Gaeilge and thoroughly enjoyed the sport, lessons, music, song and dance in atmaisféar Gaelach. It’s a great way to begin preparations for an Irish oral exam….worth 40% of marks in the Leaving Certificate Examination. Interested applicants are asked to text their names to 087 6606693 asap. Closing date set for 20th April (Satharn na Cásca).
