U10 Clann nan Gael Tournament

Our u9/u10 squad made the short trip to Johnstown on Saturday last to compete in the Clann Tournament. 12 teams from Dublin, Sligo, Galway, Westmeath and Roscommon put on a fantastic display of football in what was a superbly competitive competition. Athlone were pitted against Fingallians (Dublin), Roscommon Gaels (Roscommon) and St Brigids (Roscommon). 3 groups games followed for both the u9 and u10 teams. The u10s held a 100% record in the group stages topping their group with the u9s winning two and drawing one to also top their group. The semi-finals of the Cup competitions followed with the u10s facing locals Padraig Pearses and the u9s up against Fingallians. The u10s were narrowly pipped after extra time by the eventual winners Padraig Pearses, where our u9’s lost out to a stronger Fingallians side. The lads put on a superb display of tacking, blocking and teamwork throughout the day and were a credit to their coaches. A big thanks to Clann na nGael for a great day out for all our players and also to their hard work and dedication in organising it. Well done to all involved.

Nursery Training

Football for boys and girls in our nursery programme finished on Sunday last with a great turnout where all players received their end of year medals. This was a great way to finish off a very enjoyable season of football for this group of players. We would to thank all the parents for bringing the kids down week in week out and we look forward to them all returning next year again to Athlone GAA club. A big thanks to all the coaches for their fantastic help throughout the year and all parents and helpers who served teas, coffees and treats on Sunday last.

U12 Girls Semi Final
Athlone 4-03 Goldsmith Girls 1-02
Last Tuesday evening our U12 girls secured their place in the final of the 2019 championship competition after a hard fought encounter with near neighbours, Goldsmith Girls. In difficult conditions, the Athlone outfit overcame a tenacious opposition and through a committed display where defences were to the fore throughout. The key difference between both sides was Athlone’s ability to capitalise on rare opportunities presented and a great shift put in by their defensive sextet. This was the third meeting this year between Goldsmith Girls and Athlone and with honours even from the two previous encounters there was an added impetus in establishing the local pecking order.
Final score line on the evening: Athlone 3-4; Goldsmith Girls 1-2. At time of writing we are awaiting confirmation of final opponents following the other semi-final between Loughnavalley and Coralstown/Kinnegad. The final is scheduled to take place on the weekend of the 21/22 September.

Club Notes - 9th September

posted 10 Sep 2019, 09:50 by Athlone GAA

Athlone U9’s host Barna and Clann na nGael.

The future would appear bright for the three clubs which took part in an U9 blitz in Pairc Chiaran on Sunday morning.  Athlone welcomed our neighbours from across the Shannon, Clann na NGael and the men from just west of Galway city, Barna.

Each club fielded two ten-a-side teams and the determination and skill shown by all was a joy to behold. Each game was evenly contested and the only winner on the day was football.  For Athlone it was a pleasure to have such good young footballers from Roscommon and Galway come and test their skills against us on our home soil. Athlone and Clann na nGael have a long established relationship in terms of underage blitzes and long may it continue.  Former Coosan NS principal Michael Lydon was in charge of Barna and not surprisingly they were a well drilled and talented side.

From an Athlone point of view it was evident that great progress is being made by this group of players. Practice makes perfect and the more time these young men practise their catching and kicking (especially at home!) the better they will become.  All players and parents were treated to some well-deserved refreshments in the clubhouse afterwards.  The good behaviour and manners of all the young men, both on the field and in the clubhouse afterwards, was something their parents should be rightly proud of.

A big ‘Thank You’ to the 20 plus volunteers who worked hard on Sunday morning in car-parks, kitchens and on pitches to ensure the blitz ran smoothly and to those who brought food etc. Much appreciated.

Our U8’s and U10’s host St Lomans, Mullingar next Saturday morn in another ‘Go Games’ blitz. Details to be confirmed.

Athlone Blues- Rory Slevin, Antonio Canton-Quinn, Liam Ambrose, Cian Mannion, Paddy Stokes, Daniel Donegan, Fearghal Kelly, Micheal Cunningham, Harry Cunningham, Jack Costello, Evan Martin-Cummins.

Athlone Whites- Cillian Silke, Sean Collins, Caimin Gunning, Isaac Mulvihill-Wilkins, Sam Meegan, Ruairi Nicholson, Conor McEnroe, Aodhan Fallon, Frank Pettit, Sachin Sundaresen, Fionn Macken, Joe Sullivan, Conor Johnson.

Boys U14 Championship

Congratulations to our u14 squad who had a hard fought win against Millmore Gaels on Thursday last in the Championship. Trailing by 7 points with 10 minutes to go the lads dug deep and never gave up and came out with a fantastic victory. Credit must go to both sets of players on a superb game of football. Up next are St Lomans in the final round.

Congratulations

Congratulations to the Westmeath Camogie team who won the All-Ireland Intermediate Championship after a superb second half comeback against Galway in the final in Croke Park on Sunday. Well done to everybody involved and best of luck in Senior Championship next year.

Congratulations also to Tom and Paschal and all the crew in The Bounty who celebrated 10 years in business recently. Thanks for all the support you’ve given to the club over the years and best of luck for the next 10 years and beyond.

Athlone GAA Club Notes - 27th August

posted 27 Aug 2019, 11:10 by Athlone GAA

JFC Group 3:
Athlone 4-14 Coralstown-Kinnegad 1-9
A flurry of early goals from the full-forward line of Sam Omukoro (2), Richie Greene and Dylan Lynch set our juniors on the road to a comfortable win over a game Coralstown-Kinnegad side in their Junior Championship Group 3 Round 3 clash played in Kinnegad on Friday night.  These early goals, along with points from the Deba Okodugha and Emmet Collins, helped Athlone to a 4-5 to 1-5 half time lead, and further points from Joe Fallon, Eoin Jordan, Michael Byrne Tadhg Prendergast and David Fagan kept daylight between the sides, although they were grateful to young keeper Rytis Liaukecivius who pulled off a string of fine saves throughout the second half to prevent the home side from getting back into the match.

Athlone:  Rytis Liaukevicius, Shane Galvin, Andy Lynam, Rory Donnellan, Eoin Jordan (0-1), Emmet Collins (0-1), Niall Doolan, David Fagan (0-1), Michael Byrne (0-1), Conor Rushe, Joe Fallon (0-2), Deba Okodugha (0-1), Dylan Lynch (1-1), Sam Omukoro (2-1), Richie Greene (1-4)  Subs Used: Tadhg Prendergast (0-1), Aidan St John.

Athlone 6-13 Tubberclair 1-14
Our junior men made it two wins from two over the weekend when they accounted for Tubberclair in Tubberclair on Sunday evening, although the final result was flattering for the visitors, who were second-best for long periods of the opening half.  Just as against Kinnegad two days previously, early goals from Sam Omukoro and Richie Greene their side an ideal start, but the home side dominated most of the half as they punished Athlone defensive indiscipline with a succession of pointed frees.  Indeed, it took several good saves from sub goalkeeper Conor Devaney, who replaced the injured Rytis Liaukecivius early on, and a third major from midfielder Patrick Munnelly to give Athlone a fortuitous four-point lead at the break, 3-4 to 0-9.

The visitors began the second half with much more purpose and teamwork and points from Richie Greene (0-3), Enda Daly (0-2) and Joe Fallon stretched the lead to 10 before Tubberclair opened their account.  A coolly taken fourth goal from Niall Doolan made the game safe, while two more excellent strikes from Richie Greene to complete his hat-trick late-on put a gloss on the scoreline as Athlone eventually ran out 14 point winners on a scoreline of 6-13 to 1-14.

Athlone:  Rytis Liaukevicius, Shane Galvin, Andy Lynam, Rory Donnellan, Eoin Jordan, Emmet Collins, Niall Doolan (1-0), Patrick Munnelly (1-0), Michael Byrne, Enda Daly (0-2), Joe Fallon (0-3), Deba Okodugha, Dylan Lynch, Sam Omukoro (1-1), Richie Greene (3-6)  Subs Used: Conor Devaney, Shay Byrne, Cathal Joyce (0-1).

Playoff
The above results mean that Athlone finish runners-up in Group 3 and so will play the winners of Group 4, St Loman’s, in the first round of the playoffs.  This match is scheduled for 7pm on Thursday evening in Tubberclair so please come out and support the lads in this crucial game.
U14 Boys
Congratulations to our u14 squad on a great win in the championship away to Moate - Result : Athlone 4-24 Moate 4-08. Up next are Millmore Gaels at home in 2 weeks time. Well done lads

U10/U8 Boys
Athlone u8s and u10s made the short journey last Saturday morning to Caulry for a blitz with Castleday, Tubberclair and Garrycastle also in attendance.  The fine weather was matched by some wonderful performances on the pitch with determination and skill on display in equal measure by both the u8s and u10s.

Many thanks to all parents/guardians and players who travelled to make the blitz possible. Thank you also to Caulry for their usual hospitality and a very enjoyable morning. Training continues for both groups on Wednesdays at 6:30pm and 11:30am on Sunday mornings. New players are always welcome.

U12 Football

Our U12 footballers played Maryland-Tang in a pulsating local Derby on Tuesday evening last. Three first half goals had Athlone leading at the interval on a scoreline of 3-00 to 0-08. Maryland up the tempo in the second half and took the lead midway through the half. However Athlone did not give in and a fine goal from Adam Casey put them back in the driving seat with a few minutes to play. However deep in injury time Maryland-Tang centre back stormed up the field to stick the ball to the back of the net and level matters. From the resulting kickout the ref blew it up. A super display from this bunch of players with noticeable performances from Christian O’Brien, Shane Killian, Jack Larkin and Adam Casey. Well done to all players who took part on the evening.

U14 Leinster Feile

Pairc Chiarian hosted and participated in an U14 Leinster Feile Blitz on Saturday.

Well done to everyone who helped out on what proved a very successful day in the club. A big thanks also to all the parents who supplied a great selection of food for all the visiting teams, it was greatly appreciated.  Thanks as always to Padraig Devaney, Photographer - see Athlone GAA Official facebook page for photos.

Boys U10 St Lomans Tournament

Well done to our u10s boys who competed in the U10 St Loman’s Tournament last weekend. With three great wins in the group stages the lads topped their group and progressed to the cup semi-final where they met a strong St Lomans side. The boys were unlucky to come out on the losing end in what was a great game of football. Every player showed great sportsmanship and commitment and were a credit to their club and their parents. The future is bright for this group of players.

U14 Division 1 League – Athlone 2-11 Millmore Gaels 0-09

Our final league game in Ballymore proved to be our toughest challenge to date. A win for either side would see them progress to the league final. Athlone started the game well and were 3 points to the good midway through the first half, however Millmore hit back and finished the half very strong and went in at the interval 2 points up on a scoreline of 0-08 to 1-03. The second half proved to be Athlone’s best 30 minutes of the year to date. Some fantastic defending limited Millmore to just one point in the second half and this proved to be the backbone to a great victory. The all-important second goal came 15 minutes from time and proved to be the score that put the tie to bed. This was a superb display and sets the lads up for a league final appearance versus St Lomans on Saturday 15th June at 2pm in Cusack Park. Best of luck in the final and all support would be greatly appreciated.

​​​​​U12 Go Games v St Josephs

The Athlone U12 boys played St. Joseph’s on Wednesday the 29th May. It was a very sporting game and both teams played well. Our lads played with the support of a very strong wind in the 1st half, and went in at the break a few points up. The wind died down in the 2nd half and it made for more entertaining free flowing football. It was a great team performance throughout the game, where Gary Prendergast played well in goals with excellent kickouts, Philip Heavey was prominent in defence where he was always in front of his man and creating opportunities when in possession. Cillian Donlon showed well in attack and his distribution of the ball was excellent in creating scoring opportunities for team mates. The team was as follows: Gary Prendergast, Rory McMickan, Aaron Hardiman, Shane Killian, Jack Larkin, Philip Heavey, Darragh Lough, Adam Casey, Kyle Mahon, Conor Lough, Senan Snow, Cillian Donlon, Joshua Ukatu

Congratulations

A big congratulations to Southern Gaels U14s who made it all the way to the all-Ireland final in their Division in the U14 Hurling Feile last weekend in Cork. Unfortunately luck was not on their side in the final, however this is an amazing achievement and everyone at Athlone GAA club wish them all the best for the future.
