Na Gaeil GAA Club News

Seniors    Na Gaeil travelled to Con Keating Park in Caherciveen on Sunday to play St. Mary’s in Round 7 of the County League. Na Gaeil opened brightly with a point from Ian McCarthy followed by a pointed free from Dara Devine.

Play was interrupted in the 10th minute for an injury to St. Mary’s no.4 Oisin Moran who had to leave the field of play as a result. Denis Daly opened the scoring for St. Mary’s in the 15th minute followed by another pointed free from Dara Devine.

Na Gaeil lost Dara Sheehy through injury five minutes before half time. St. Mary’s scored the next three points to go one ahead with 30 minutes played but Na Gaeil pulled two back before the interval through Ian McCarthy and a Dara Devine pointed free to lead by one at the break on a score line of 0-05 to 0-04.

St. Mary’s Muiris Fitzgerald popped over the first point of the 2nd half which was cancelled out by another pointed free from Dara Devine. Andrew Barry limped off injured at this stage and he was replaced by Rory Murphy.

Muiris Fitzgerald and Diarmaid Herlihy exchanged points before Mike Griffin was on the end of a good Na Gaeil move to crash the ball to the St. Mary’s net and put them 4 ahead with 10 minutes gone in the half.

Dara Devine extended the lead further with a pointed free. Denis and Daniel Daly fired over points for St. Mary’s but Mike Griffin and Dara Devine responded with points for Na Gaeil. With 3 minutes left Na Gaeil were 5 points up and looked to be home and dry.

But unfortunately the concession of two soft goals in the final minutes meant that they ended up losing by a point in the end. It was a disappointing result in a game that they had controlled for the most part. Final Score: Na Gaeil: 1-10; St. Mary’s: 2-08.

Team: Timmy Culloty, Damien Bourke, Ryan O’Neill, Shane Fitzgerald, Fergal Barry, Eoin Doody, Dara Sheehy, Andrew Barry, Dan O’Connor, Ian McCarthy(0-02), Mike Griffin(1-01), Kieran O’Donovan, Diarmaid Herlihy(0-01), Kieran Dineen, Dara Devine(0-06). Subs: Dan Goggin for Dara Sheehy; Rory Murphy for Andrew Barry; Pa Roche for Mike Griffin.
