Junior Championship Round 2
We travelled to Shandonagh on Sunday to take on St. Joseph’s in Round 2 of the Championship. Played in dry conditions, St. Joseph’s were quick off the mark with two early points before Barry O Mara got Bun up and running with a free.
O Mara had Bun level after a great point from play before good play from Bun saw Ken Conroy clip over with his left.
When both teams were reduced to fourteen men within a short time of each other the game opened up and became end to end. This was epitomised when Bun had strong claims for a penalty turned down only for St. Joseph’s to go down the field and get a goal of their own after an initial great save from Alan Maguire.
To their credit Bun responded well to this setback, Aidan Finnan scored a great point from play before Barry O Mara tied the game up with another free to leave the half time score 1:02 to 0:05.
St. Joseph’s were much the stronger team in the second half. The awarding of a penalty to them was a crucial score to build momentum for them. Despite Andy Whitney scoring a goal for Bun with ten minutes left, St. Joseph’s responded with a third goal to put the game to bed.
While Bun will be disappointed with the result, any team can have an off day and they will have the opportunity to get back on track when they face Kilbeggan in two weeks time.
Team: Alan Maguire, Luke Kiernan, Joe Tormey, Gavin Lyons, Matt Hope, Simon Moorehead, Ronan Scally, Andy Whitney, Shane McGovern, Aidan Finnan, Garvan Dolan, Finian Newman, Ken Conroy, Darragh Lyons, & Barry O Mara. Subs: Mark Donnelly for Finian Newman, Tommy Murphy for Alan Maguire, Fintan Finnan for Ken Conroy, Dave Newman for Mark Donnelly, Conor Newman for Gavin Lyons, Brian Maguire, Eoin McGowan, Cian Tighe, Ger Brennan & Liam Mitchell.

Huge congratulations from all at Bunbrosna GAA to Ray Ray Carolan, Bressie and friends as they finished their mammoth challenge of ‘The Rising’ in Limerick on Thursday last. Over the 7 days they Kayaked the 330KM of the River Shannon to raise funds for A Lust For Life Mental Health Programme for Schools.
This is going to make a hugely significant impact to the lives of our young people in school for the years ahead. We are extremely proud of Ray and all the lads efforts.
