RIP: Our sincere sympathy to Fr. Pádraig Walsh on the passing of his father Patrick last week. May he rest in peace.

Bingo: Na Gaeil Bingo tonight at 8pm sharp. Our Mini Accumulater Jackpot House tonight is €290 in 49 calls. We also have a Raffle and Split the Bucket at half time. Bus available on (087) 2817577. Over 18s only. Hope to see you all there for an excellent night out.

Volunteers: The club are looking for people to help out at bingo on Monday nights. If you can spare 2 hours every 5 or 6 weeks then Niamh (087-9863667) would be delighted to have you on board.

Scór: Scór is very much a ’niche’ activity within Na Gaeil. Of course we’re first & foremost a football club, but Scór is the cultural arm of the GAA and is a really great thing to be involved in – especially for kids. It gives them confidence & is good fun!

If you’re reading this & think you might like your child to be involved, please contact Margaret at 086 0855008. Or better again, if you’re a parent with maybe something to offer to our small but enthusiastic Scór committee, please get in touch….

Fundraiser: Dearbhla Quirke, daughter of Mary & Jerome, is heading to Uganda volunteering for 3 weeks in July and must fundraise €2,650! She will be working as an Occupational Therapist over there in a paediatric rehabilitation centre. Any donations would be greatly appreciated!

Changes to Car Park: We would like to make patrons aware of the new disabled parking bays and the yellow box for ambulance parking which have been added to the club’s car parks recently. Please keep them free at all times for people who need them.

Tesco: Thanks to Tesco Ireland and our own Siobhán Lacey who organised with Tesco Manor to have Na Gaeil included in their great Tesco Community Fund. Also a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us. We’re delighted to have received our funding recently.

Senior Men: Round 8 of the Credit Union Co. League saw us at home to Ardfert yesterday afternoon. The opening quarter was evenly balanced with both teams scoring 5 points, all ours coming from play from Peter Doyle (2), Darragh Reen and Tomás Ó hAiniféin (2).

On 17 minutes Oisín Maunsell was on the end of a Na Gaeil attack and his precise pass across goal found Morgan Madden unmarked and he palmed the ball home. Ardfert replied with another free before an excellent score by Darragh Reen from 40 meters pushed Na Gaeil ahead by 3 again.

Two points from play by Ardfert cut the deficit to 1 before a fine Tomás Ó hAiniféin long range point at the death saw us lead at halftime by 1-7 to 0-8.

Unfortunately for our lads the second half was one to forget. Ardfert made better use of the wind and had notched up 1-4 before a Darragh Reen free stemmed the tide.

Moments later the same player picked up a black card and Ardfert used their numerical advantage to add 2-2 to their tally. With time almost up our lads got through for 2 goals, one each from Tomás Ó hAiniféin and Jamesie O’Connor but it was all too late and Ardfert were heading home with the 2 valuable Co. League points.

Final score: Na Gaeil 3-8, Ardfert 3-14. Team: John Kearney, Enda O’Connor, Ryan O’Neill, Seán Barrett, Peter Doyle, Andrew Barry, Jack Doyle, Tomás O’hAiniféin, Jamesie O’Connor, Morgan Madden, Kieran O’Donovan, Oisín Maunsell, Mark Lynch, Darragh Reen, Jack Sheehan. Subs: Jack Rodgers, Cian Devine, Kieran O’Connor, Oisín O’Brien, Aaron Dewey, Jack Costello, Kevin O’Donoghue, Oisín O’Sullivan, Seamus Looney, Dan O’Connor, Ruairí O’hAiniféin, Liam Óg Kingston, Shawn Duggan, Darragh Devine, Seán O’Connor.

U17 Boys: Despite being without 3 of our main players our u17 lads put in a great performance last Monday night against a strong Laune Rangers team in the Central Region Division 1 semi-final. The visitors eventually won by 2-13 to 3-5 but our lads can be very proud of the great run they had in the competition.
