Na Gaeil GAA Club News

Covid Update    The powers that be in Croke Park have thanked all clubs for their on-going patience in relation to the continued enforced delay in the resumption of GAA activities. They have provided us with a brief up-date on the position with regard to covid-19.

They say that 2021 has already felt like a long year without any on field activity to sustain us. However, the reality of the pandemic and the continuing spread of the virus means that we are likely to have to persevere for a little longer before anything like our normal level of activity can resume.

In terms of the immediate future, it is expected that the Government will publish any proposed changes to the current restrictions by the end of this week and they will communicate again with our Clubs and Counties at that point in terms of the implications for GAA activity. In the interim, they again reiterate that the GAA has not decided on what competitions may or may not be facilitated in any revised national fixture programme for 2021.

As they have stated previously, such decisions will be a factor of how much time is ultimately available to them, both for an inter county season and for the broader participation levels that will be necessary for a meaningful club season at both adult and underage levels.

Súil Siar    Credit Union County Senior Football League Division 4: May 12th 2012: Na Gaeil V St. Senans: Tralee side Na Gaeil continued their winning ways with this hard earned victory over St. Senans in Mountcoal on Saturday evening last. The pitch was in excellent condition but a stiff breeze prevailed throughout.

Following some sloppy play from both sides in the early stages, Saints midfielder Jason Browne opened the scoring with a fine point following good approach play. Paudie Quille fired over a free to stretch the lead but Eamon O’Neill opened Na Gaeil’s account in the 6th minute when he swung the ball over from the right wing. St Senans took control of the game but some of their shooting was erratic.

Jason Browne was almost in for a goal but Adrian Quirke made a fine save. Paudie Quille from a free, Con O’Keeffe and Darragh Kennelly from play increased the home side’s lead to four with 20 minutes played. Jamie Lowham and Seán O’Connell traded points before Lowham gave Na Gaeil a lifeline with a well taken goal. Diarmaid Herlihy leveled matters soon after but pointed frees from Quille and O’Connell in added time saw the home side take a 0-08 to 1-03 lead at half time.

David Culloty and Seán O’Connel swapped early second half points before Na Gaeil corner forward Diarmaid Herlihy fired over two excellent points to level matters for the second time in the game. Twin free takers O’Connell and Quille were on target once more to open a two point lead.

Back came Na Gaeil with points from David Culloty, whose shot skimmed the cross bar and a wonderfully struck 45 from Eamon O’Neill to leave the sides all square with a quarter of the game remaining. O’Connell with his 5th free of the evening put the Saints ahead once more but the reply was swift and Jamie Lowham leveled in the 20thminute with another fine point from play. The visitors took the lead for the first time soon afterwards when Herlihy punished a poor kick out with a point from play. David Culloty had the final say in the game when he got on the end of a good move to fire over his third point of the game. Final score: Na Gaeil: 1-11; St. Senans: 0-12.
