U14 Hurling
Sadly it was not to be the u14 hurlers day on Saturday last when they defeated by a very powerful and physical Padraig Pearses team in the féile semi-final in Athleague. The match was played in perfect conditions and the Gaels had a good start piling on the pressure on the Pearses defence but sadly failing to convert the chances to scores. Pearses responded and notched up a goal and a point in quick succession. However, some ferocious and brave defending, particularly from Jack Fleming, saw the Gaels keep the Pearses attack out. From this the Gaels pushed up and got three great points, 2 from play and one free to bring themselves back into contention. However, Pearses replied with a further 3 points and saw them go in 1-6 to 0-3 up at half time. The second half saw Pearses really ramp the intensity and there was only so much the Gaels defence could keep out. Pearses forwards got the upper hand and scored 3-7 without reply in the second half.
The Feile place for this game was lost to a very strong and skilled Pearses side. However, the lads will regroup and now face a play-off against Athleague/Tremane for the third and final féile place. The game details are TBC this week.

U12 Football
Both our U 12 Teams played during the past week. Our Division 6 Team lost out to a stronger Western Gaels on Thursday evening last on a scoreline of 12 to 7. We started slowly but in the 2nd half we came into the game very well. Liam Naughton led the revival in the 2nd half with a storming display.

Our Division 1 team travelled to Boyle on Saturday morning last and came away with a good win. Boyle dominated the 1st half and kept us completely out of the game and while continued to play very well in the 2nd half Eoghan Carthy lead the Roscommon Gaels boys to grind out a victory by 3 scores.
This coming week our Division 1 Team play Clann na Gael at 6 pm next Monday evening 1st May away. Details later in the week.

Roscommon Gaels Gear Donate/Swap

The Club are calling on all members to bring any unwanted, unused & outgrown boots, helmets, hurls & Gaels gear, of reasonable quality, to be available as spares in Lisnamult or be handed out to our club players as the need arises.
No point having boots and gear sitting in a shed or press whilst some children could make good use of them.
Some players might want to avail of swapping their outgrown gear for a bigger size.

We are asking our players to bring along to training sessions and can the trainers/management take from them and we will have space upstairs in Lisnamult to store.
