St Brigids does Strictly Encore
Following the success and the enjoyment of our maiden ‘Strictly Come Dancing Brigid’s Style’ the Club is planning a ‘Strictly Encore’ in the Autumn. We are now looking for any ‘movers and shakers’ who would like to take part. As you know from the first ‘victims’ no prior dancing experience necessary, just a great time promised! If you are interested or know of anybody else who might be please contact Kevin Clabby at 0862588334.
As we already have some ‘eager volunteers’ lined up the remaining places will fill quickly. So get your names in fast!!
St Brigids 4-7 Oran 1-9
St Brigids recorded their third win in three games in the O’Rourke Cup – Senior League on Sunday last in Kiltoom. The first half was slow to take off with Oran getting the opening score of the game and Brigids recording their first score eight minutes in. It was nearly ten minutes before the next score came courtesy of a Jack McDonnell goal followed by a wonderful pass thanks to a quick free from Senan Kilbride so that Ronan Stack could find the back of the net. Oran got a penalty just before and Cathal Kenny made sure to bury it in the net, leaving the half time score 2-2 to 1-3 to St Brigids.
Oran scored the first point of the second half but points from Senan Kilbride, Davy Cunniffe and Jack McDonnell as well as two more goals from Darragh Sheehy and John Grehan gave Brigid’s a comfortable lead. Oran dominated the point scoring for the last ten mins but St. Brigid’s had a strong lead built up and got them over the line with seven points to spare.
