October Update (4th October 2010)

October 5th, 2010

4th October 2010

It’s a pity that Connemara R.F.C could not get organised a little earlier in the Summer months to take on the early challenges in the Connacht League and the All Ireland League.  Summer season work commitments and participation in the various Gaelic football tournaments must be honoured.  The first A.I.L game against City of Derry was a daunting task with lots of new players taking part.  Derry attacked early and concentrated at our wings and centre where they got a few soft scores.

Our young players must be proud of their all out effort which reaped three great tries in the second half.  Kevin Ward’s introduction in the second half was noticeable as he and Cormac McDonnell, Emmett Ferron, Martin Coyne, Alan Pryce and Darragh Sweeney did well.  Young Michael O’Toole at scrumhalf will have benefited from this experience. 
Alan Keogh, James O’Connell, Michael Aspell, David McDonagh and the other backs did their best as did Sean Joyce.

City of Derry scored five tries and our three tries came from Cormac Mc Donnell and two from centre James O’Connell.

Thanks to Michael Nee of Connemara Bus Coaches for his continued sponsorship.  Success will bring more support, sponsorship and attendance at games. 
The next game is an away game against Banbridge on Saturday the 9th  of October.

The Connemara Juniors played NUIG in the Monastery Pitch on Sunday the 26th September. Connemara were unlucky to be beaten by a last minute try by NUIG.
A number of players had played football in the morning and the second game was a bit too demanding.

Connemara Juniors also played Cregg R.F.C on Sunday the 3rd of October in Roscommon.  They unfortunately lost by 25- 14 to a strong Cregg’s team who are one of the favourites for the league this year.
