Inny Shamrocks U13

On Saturday 28 August, while most were watching the All Ireland semi-final between Kerry and Tyrone, the large crowd in attendance at Lake Point Park, Mullingar were treated to an equally thrilling spectacle as Inny Shamrocks and St Lomans faced off in the quarter-final of the under 13 championship.

This game featured breath-taking, end-to-end football and both teams are to be commended for their commitment and skill. Ultimately, It was St Lomans who progressed to the semi-final, courtesy of 2 quick-fire second half goals, which left Inny Shamrocks with too great an obstacle to climb in the remaining time. Best of luck to St Loman’s in the next round.

Inny Shamrocks were well served by their whole panel of players in this enthralling match. Andrew McLean O’Hara provided another assured and composed display in the goals, pulling off a number of brave saves. In the fullback line the rocksteady Aiden Keane made some expertly executed interceptions.

Captain Jack Atkins provided great cover and fielding at full back, and Greg Penrose read the game expertly, making a number of dispossessions and clearing his lines to good effect. Matthew Molloy showed his versatility in his redeployment at wingback where he tackled, harried and carried the ball to great effect.

Thomas Kerrigan continues to grow in prominence with every display and was a rock at centre back. Fionn Leslie completed the defensive unit with another all action display at wingback.

The midfield powerhouse combination of Tristan Jordan and Motiejius Racinskas gave probably their best performance and provided a strong platform for the impressive team display.

Cathal Keena worked tirelessly at centre forward and proved a brilliant link between the defence and forward unit. He was ably assisted by the hard running and tireless displays of Finn Maher, whose second half goal was just reward for his impressive efforts, and Ryan Tormey, whose accurate and selfless passing was a highlight of the game and brought out the best in his teammates.

At full forward Liam Og Maxwell was his usual livewire self and proved a real handful for the opposition. He took a very impressive goal and was unlucky not to score some more as the game progressed. At corner forward Mikey Lenehan showcased his progression with a very solid first half display where he tackled exceptionallywell. John Lyons provided probably his best performance to date in the other corner, proving a very good outlet and selflessly setting up scores for his teammates.

Dara McGlynn was introduced early into the fray to good effect and worked hard throughout, getting himself into some very good positions. Ben Forde also showcased his progression with very good display on his introduction, showing his quickly improving array of skills.

Stephen Clancy was introduced in the second half and again gave a hard-working, tough display with some very good interventions and passes. James Connolly showed his rapid development on his introduction at cornerback, where he made one vital interception and looked assured and composed.

Jayden Killian did very well at half forward with some good running and pressing of the opposition forward line. Peadar Baird was held in reserve due to his U11 commitments but was willing and able if called upon and his presence adds real depth to the panel.

This team has worked extremely hard and trained exceptionally well throughout the entire year and their progression both individually and as a team has been testament to their hard work and talent. They now progress to a shield semi-final and will have high hopes of a final appearance later this year.

Well done to all of the players and also to the management team who have been training them throughout the year. Training continues on Wednesdays in Bunbrosna at 6.45 and on Fridays in Ballynacargy at 6.30.

Condolence

We at Bunbrosna GAA would like to offer our sincere sympathy to Damien Maher, the Bardon and Maher families on the sad and untimely passing of Claire. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.
