This Week in the Coiste na nÓg:

To start off the week our fantastic U8 Girls played Laune Rangers in three fantastic games. The girls showed great progress in their skills all over the field, well done the all the girls and their amazing coaches.

Next up on the same evening our U13 White Team travelled to Fossa and won their final game in phase one of the county league. A good start saw our U13s race into an early lead which they added to throughout the match to win 4-06 to 0-07 in the finish.

Our U10 Girls Teams showed some brilliant defensive play, tackling, passing and scoring on a very warm evening at the Track in Killorglin on Wednesday. This was the 5th game between our neighbours Laune Rangers GAA and our Milltown/Castlemaine Gaa Club across the last 8 days with some fantastic games between the two clubs involving our Juniors, U11 Boys, U10 Girls, U9 Boys and U8 Girls over the past week. Great to see such fantastic enthusiasm for the game in Mid Kerry as always at all age levels and wonderful to have football back at all age levels.

Well done to our U15 Green Team who were too who won the Division 2 Shield semi final on Wednesday evening against St Michaels Foilmore. With our Milltown/Castlemaine team on top form they took a good lead into the second half of 3-11 to 1-03. The second half brought more strong play from our U15s as they went on to win 5-17 to 1-07 and book a final spot against Rathmore later this week.

Our U15 White Team also had a semi final on Friday evening against a very strong Ballymac side in Div 10 of this years County League. Although our Milltown/Castlemaine side worked hard and played some fantastic football they were to just miss out on the night. Well done to the players and their coaches on a fantastic run of performances in this years county league.

Well done to our U10 Girls teams who were out again against Scartaglen on a very sunny Saturday morning again both teams played some fantastic football showing some brilliant defensive work and incredible accuracy in front of the goal.

Our U13 Green Team were just pipped at the post as they say against Ballyduff on Sunday evening in the County League Phase 2 match. The sides were all square at the first water break, our visiting side led by a point at half time and by a point at the second water break only for the home side to grab the win with a last gasp green flag. Our U13 showed excellent skill, commitment and guile throughout the contest which could not have been any tighter.

Field Development Project:

There has been fantastic progress in our field development project in the past week with the concrete works on the stand nearing completion, being expertly done by Denis O’Riordan and his company FRC. It is our hope that the seats for the stand will be installed in the next 2/3 weeks.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Padraig Clifford & Sons Power Washing who kindly washed down the containers for our socialisation area, a fantastic job and if you need their services you can contact Padraig on 0876777154.

This week also saw the laying of the astro turf sections of our walkway and at the entry points to the field including the dugout areas.

All Ireland Minor Final:

Well done the Cillian Burke and his teammates on reaching the 2020 All Ireland Minor Final. It wasn’t to be on the day but all here at Milltown/Castlemaine GAA Club are incredibly proud of our club member Cillian Burke and his achievements along with his fellow Kerry players over the past year.

In a somewhat disjointed championship do to the unusual circumstances of the last 18 months the Munster Championship took place during the winter. Cillian was fantastic in both the semi final and final earning man of the match in both games. In All Ireland Final again this passed Sunday he played extremely well, covering every blade of grass in Tullamore. We look forward to seeing more from this Kerry Team in years to come and to seeing Cillian in the Green and Gold but especially in the Green and White.

Senior Round Up:

Senior: There was a fantastic win for our senior team away to Brosna on Saturday evening keeping them in the hunt to make the play off in Division 3. Well done to the whole panel and their coaching team led by David Heasman. The score 1-10 to 11 points in favour of our visiting side with Duagh to come in the final game whilst Brosna will travel to Laune Rangers with it all to play for.

Junior: Our Junior Team had another great win at home to Keel on Tuesday evening with a fantastic performance particularly in the second half our junior side where in great scoring form. The final score reading 4-16 to 1-07 andf leaving our juniors in a three way tie on six points at the top.

Minor: Well done to our Minor Team in another great win last Monday night against Dingle/Annuscaul/Lispole at Paddy Burke Memorial Park.

The pattern of the second half was very similar, with our Minor side playing some fantastic football, there were some fantastic scores from both teams but the green flag was to be the difference on the day with the final score 9-10 to 3-12.

Well done to our Milltown/Castlemaine U17 side and many thanks to their coaches Cathal Moriarty and Steven Roche. A big thank you also to Brendan Twiss for being called in at the last minute to ref the game.
