Drumcliffe/Rosses Point GAA Club Notes

All roads lead to Kent Park in Ballydoogan this Monday evening (May 28th) for the DRP girls U16 footballers who play Calry/St Joseph’s in the U16 ‘A’ league final at 7:30pm. We wish the players and management team, led by Barry O’Sullivan, every success.
Our monthly club meeting this Monday night, May 28th, in Oxfield, will now start at the later time of 9:30pm to facilitate members and supporters who wish to attend the girls final.
We wish our club captain Neil Ewing and the Sligo senior footballers the very best of luck in this Sunday’s Connacht football semi-final against Galway at Salthill (Throw-in: 3:30pm). Good luck also to the Sligo U20 footballers who play Roscommon on Saturday evening at Dr Hyde Park.
Congrats to the Rathcormac NS girls footballers on reaching the Sligo Cumann na mBunscol last week. The date for the final had still to be finalised at the time of writing.
There were some excellent performances by Rosses Point and Drumcliffe competitors at the National Community Games finals in Limerick last weekend, with athletes taking home several medals across of a range of team and individual events, ranging to athletics, swimming, tag rugby, model making – not to mention Gold in the Quiz competition! Well done to all involved.
Our junior men’s football team were narrowly beaten by St Molaise Gaels in Division 4 last Sunday on a final scoreline of 1-11 to 2-7.
There was another good win for the boys U16 footballers in the league last Tuesday evening when they recorded a 5-18 to 3-4 win in Geevagh. The team now play Ballymote/Bunninadden on Monday evening in Oxfield at 7pm. A win there would secure a place in the league final.
The boys U12 football teams’ league matches against Eastern Harps, scheduled for this Tuesday, have been postponed on account of Confirmation for Rathcormac NS pupils this week.
There were mixed fortunes for our U14 football teams last week. The girls enjoyed a 6-8 to 3-7 win over St Molaise Gaels in Grange on Monday evening, while the boys were beaten by Coolera/Strandhill on Thursday by 10-5 to 4-9.
There was a huge turnout of players and supporters at Oxfield last Wednesday for the midweek U8 & U10 nursery football blitz with St Molaise Gaels. A very enjoyable evening was had by all. The next midweek U8/U10 blitz is scheduled for Wednesday, June 6th, when we travel to play Eastern Harps in Keash at 7pm.
Benbulben Gaels U14 hurlers continue their Féile preparations this Thursday with an away match against Naomh Eoin in the league at 7pm. Well done to our U12 hurlers who recorded a win in the league last Monday.
Oxfield Centre is holding its popular Family Funday Monday extravaganza this bank holiday Monday, June 4th, from 2-5pm.
The club extends its sympathy to Karen Joyce and family following the death of Karen’s father, Michael, in County Armagh last week.
