It was great to see Damien Hogan returning from a long term injury and he 
gave a Man-of-the-Match performance! (b) Our next challenge was the Suits Selects Town 
League final that was played on Sunday last (24th) v the winners of the Ardfert/Churchill 
match. Our boys played fine football and gave a great account of themselves.
(ii) Suits Select Town League (Division 2): (a) Our B team took on the unbeaten Division 2 
league leaders, Na Mistéalaigh B, on the 18th. The game was played in the ‘new’ Chamfers. 
This strong John Mitchel Club side dominated from the start, scoring two early scores which 
placed us on the defensive go luath sa chluiche.

Valiant defending, under intense pressure and
under the strong leadership of team captain Jamie Horgan, kept the Mitchel Club boys’ attack
to a single point for the rest of the first quarter.

Eventually, however, the effort took its toll 
and, in the second quarter, we saw our opponents build a comfortable lead (that was very 
uncomfortable for us!). Mark Lynch gave us a ray of shunshine le dhá chúilín ghleoite to 
open our account. Following some positional switches, our lads started the second half 
strongly and kept the JMC defence under pressure for most of the third quarter le dhá phointe
dheasa eile ach…ach…but our shooting left us down.

We were unable to generate the 
necessary scores despite all our pressure on the Green’n’Gold defenders. Unfortunately for 
us, the Mistéalaigh, after weathering intense Rock pressure, broke the seige, attacked our 
hardworking defence and popped in another goal. Faraor géar, ochón agus mo bhrón, they 
followed the goal with a string of points as our braves struggled mightily to save the 

Best for The Rock on the day was our captain and MOTM, Jamie Horgan, who 
courageously led by example and never threw in the towel! His great example of tenacity, 
determination and fous was closely followed by Jack Slattery, Pádraig O’Halloran, Ciarán 
Kavanagh and Mark Lynch. Despite a tough day at the office, our boys kept trying to the end
• and their effort and never say die attitude was a credit to them. With some more work on the 
skills, boys, we will improve and will strongly and confidently challenge the best!! Beidh lá 
eile ag an bPaorach!

GAELTACHT SCHOLARSHIP? The GAA (Comhairle na Mumhan, Bord Chiarraí, Bord 
Thrá Lí), in conjunction with Coláistí Chorca Dhuibhne, is offering a limited number of 
Gaeltacht scholarships to young members (ages 12 to 17 years) of GAA clubs. These GAA-
sponsored scholarships will enable club members to participate in residential courses during 
which they’ll improve their spoken Irish. They’ll be based in the Corca Dhuibhne (West 
Kerry) Gaeltacht for 2/3 weeks during the summer. Over the years, many young members of 
The Rock Club experienced these Cúrsaí Gaeilge and thoroughly enjoyed their participation 
in sport, lessons, music, song and dance in atmaisféar Gaelach. Interested applicants are 
asked to text their names to 087 6606693 asap. Closing date set for 20th April (Satharn na 
Cásca) agus tá an t-am sleamhnú. Please pass on the word to friends as, unfortunately, some 
look for the scoláireacht after the closing date! Ná cuir do leas ar cairde! A couple of players 
have already applied. Bain triail as saoire sa Ghaeltacht, a leaideanna! You’ll come home 
with new friends, a good healthy colour, nice memories agus beidh tú ag spalpadh
