Senior League Victory

The Senior League Division 2 title and promotion were achieved Sunday evening in Markievicz Park when our senior team defeated Geevagh 1-14 to 1-07 in the final. In control from the start, Conor O' Mahony, Kevin Banks and Seán Murphy were particularly influential around the middle of the field, setting up the attacks for Niall Murphy and Barry O' Mahony. Leading 1-08 to 0-04 at half time they weathered an early storm at the beginning of the second half when Geevagh scored twice, before a Mark McCallion point settled the nerves. Geevagh's cause wasn't helped with two red cards, but to their credit they fought to the end. We can look forward to the championship with optimism after this victory. Well done to all concerned. Team. Kevin Kelly, Enda Mitchell, David McGee, Conor McDonagh, Seán Murphy, Gary Cawley (Mark McCallion 0-02), Ciaran Moloney, Peter Laffey 0-02, Kevin Banks (Barry Doyle), Killian McCahey 0-01 (Frankie O' Flynn), Keelan Cawley, Conor O' Mahony (Adrian McPartland), Barry O' Mahony 0-06 (4 frees 2 45s), Karol O' Neill (Gary Cadden), Niall Murphy (1-03).. subs; Mark Comerford, David Kilrehill, James Hampson, John Kilrehill, Kyle Hardigan, Ronan Redmond, Diarmuid Mulcahy, David Joyce.

Under 12 Girls

Our under 12 girls suffered defeat at the hands of a very strong C.T. Gaels team last Friday in Ransboro Pk. Although the girls started well and led thanks to an Eva White goal, the visitors responded quickly and were soon in the ascendancy. Trailing 4-07 to 3-01 at half time the girls never gave up and displayed their famous battling qualities right to the end led by Nessa O’ Sullivan, who was outstanding in defence, and Ava Griffin who made numerous fine saves in goals. Others to impress were Áine Harte, Susannah Gilligan and Lauren Healy, while Ellen Walsh and Clodagh Martyn worked tirelessly in attack. The team has a break now until they play Drumcliffe/Rosses Point in their final match on Friday 11th August. Team; Ava Griffin, Laoise McKenna, Susannah Gilligan, Anna McDaniel, Mary-Kate McPartland, Lisa Kilfeather, Aoife Gormley, Orna Murphy (2-01), Orlaith Beirne, Eva White (1-00), Úna Griffin, Ellen Walsh (0-02), Clodagh Martyn, Nessa O’ Sullivan, Lauren Healy, Áine Harte, Grace Bailey, Rachel Gallagher, Hannah Bohan, Lauren Dalton, Luna Sineoni.

Senior Hurling Championship

The senior hurlers made the short trip to Calry on Saturday evening to play reigning champions Calry/St. Joseph’s in the senior championship. Trailing at half time the boys put in a strong second half out-scoring their hosts by 0-10 to 1-04, with some fine long range points from Kevin Banks, Ronan Redmond, Mark Comerford, Eoin

Comerford and Gary Cadden. This wasn’t enough however to turn the deficit around and we eventually lost 2-14 to 0-12. Team; Colm Scanlon, Aidan Coleman, Niall Cadden, Jonathon Porter (David Kilrehill), Kevin Banks (0-04), Ronan Redmond (0-02), Eoin Comerford (0-01), Conor Gillen (Fionn Morrissey), Mark Comerford (0-01), Kieran Prior (0-01), Thomas Moran (Seán Callaghan), Gary Cadden (0-03), Brian Tobin (Cathal Burke), Troy Hickey (Colin Parke). The next match is this Saturday at home to Tourlestrane at 6.00.

U8/U10

The Centre of Excellence was the venue for our under 8s and under 10s on Friday when they played host to Glencar/Manorhamilton in a series of challenge matches. It was great to see so many of our young players on the field, as four pitches were in use at one time and even better to challenge ourselves against different opposition. Well done to all concerned and a big thank you to those who helped in any way, and a special thanks to Glencar/ Manorhamilton for making the journey. We hope to make the return trip soon. Next up is the Sligo GAA Blitz in Scarden on Aug. 9th.

U10 Hurling

The young U10 hurlers of Coolera/ Strandhill showed some great potential winning two matches and drawing one match against Calry/St Joseph's, Naomh Eoin and Benbulben Gaels at the Sligo Centre of Excellence last Wednesday. There was a multitude of skills shown by these young players, some fine hooking and blocking, along with some great individual solo runs in attack, great defending with some excellent clearances and tackles. The highlight of the three matches was young Patrick Tuffy's solo run and rasper of a shot that ended up in the Naomh Eoin net.

We had the three Fenton brothers playing, matching the three Cadden brothers who play on the senior team. Hopefully these boys will have a long hurling career ahead of them. Some good leadership was shown by the older boys Luke Giligan, Aidan O'Loughlin and Shane Galvin along with Cathal Hughes in goals while James Mulhern got through a trojan amount of tackling with James Sheridan in half back. The young forward line of Luke, Diarmuid Whelan, Senan and Cathal Keane worked hard in setting up scoring chances for Stefan McMahon. The squad of players used was: Cathal Hughes, Senan Keane, Shane Galvin, Luke Giligan, Patrick Tuffy, Diarmuid Whelan, Charlie Fenton, Cathal Keane, James Mulhern, James Sheridan, Eoghan Fenton, Luke O'Connor, Daragh Fenton, Stefan McMahon, Aidan O'Loughlin.

Training continues on Saturday at 10.45 to 12 at Ransboro pitch for underage hurlers.

The club will be heading to Croke Park on Sunday August 13th to take in the Cork v Waterford All Ireland Semi Final. Further details will be texted to parents.

Under 12 Boys

Both teams in the under 12 league had good wins over St. John’s last Tuesday. The under 12 team had a 19-13 victory, while the Division 3 team won 23-16 in what was an excellent team performance. In goals Ronan Adams had an excellent game with great distribution. In defence Darragh Ballantyne and Jack McDaniel were solid in the full back line while half backs Cormac Mullins, Oisin Whelan and David Kennedy attacked at every opportunity Midfielders Thomas Kinane and Hughie Doherty performed well taking some great scores while Ciallan O’ Neill and Mark Keane led the forward line, ably assisted by Hubert Healy, Cathal Hughes, Cathal Gaffney and Shane Prior.

Under 14 Girls

The under 14 girls had their final league group game away to St. Nathy’s on Tuesday last. A scintillating second half performance which saw the girls score 4-08 led to a 5-12 to 4-06 win. The teams were level at half time 1-04 each. Amy Deering opened the scoring with a goal. Enya Hughes followed this with a point; Holly Gilligan contributed 0-02 before Amy added the final point of the half. The second half saw the girls play more fluid football, passing the ball better and supporting each other. Shona Dalton starred in this period scoring five great points from play. Amy Deering added two more to her tally and Holly chipped in with her third. The goals came from Beibhinn Harte (2), the second of which was a spectacular left foot shot to the top corner, Hannah Burrows and Cliodhna O’ Sullivan. This was a strong team display, from Keri Mitchell in goals right up to 15. Mary Kate McPartland and Amy Hampson were dominant in defence, while in attack Amy Deering, Holly Gilligan and Shona Dalton caused the home defence endless problems. The midfield pairing of Beibhinn Harte and Cliodhna O’Sullivan ran tirelessly from start to finish linking defence with attack while also contributing three goals between them. The girls play Shamrock Gaels/Drumcliffe-Rosses Point this evening in the quarter final. Team; Keri Mitchell, Amy Hampson, Ciara Lindsay, Nessa O’ Sullivan, Grace Molloy, Mary-Kate McPartland, Cliodhna O’ Sullivan (1-00), Beibhinn Harte (2-00), Holly Gilligan (0-03), Amy Deering (1-03), Shona Dalton (0-05), Enya Hughes (0-01), Hannah Burrows (1-00)

Junior League

Our junior footballers played host to Curry on Friday evening in Division 4 of the league. A strong second half showing wasn’t enough to turn a half time deficit into victory and we lost 3-16 to 1-11. A point from Conor Gillen and a Martin Savage goal were our only scores of the first half, but things improved after the break, when five points from the boot of John Kilrehill were added to by Martin Savage and Christy Walsh with two points each before David McGee brought proceedings to an end with a well taken score. Team; Oisin Conway, Diarmuid Loftus, Liam Heneghan, James Hampson, Christy Walsh (0-02), Eoin Macken, John Kilrehill (0-05), David McGee (0-01), Colm Scanlon, Declan Cawley (Barry Doyle), Conor Gillen (0-01), Martin Savage (1-02), Alan Scanlon.

Sligo Ladies vs Roscommon

It was a bitter sweet evening for the Intermediate LGFA team vs Roscommon last Saturday evening in Tubbercurry. Despite losing by a solitary point, they have qualified to play Leitrim in the Connacht Final in McHale Park on July 2nd. Congrats to our representatives Ruth Goodwin, Laura Ann Laffey and Jacqui Mulligan.

Sligo vs Antrim

Congratulations to Keelan Cawley, Niall Murphy and Peter Laffey who all played their part in Sligo’s win over Antrim in Markievicz Park last Saturday evening.

Cumann na mBunscol Final

Congratulations to Ransboro NS who won the Cumann na mBunscol final in Markievicz Park on Sunday beating Rathcormac NS on a scoreline of 10 points to 8. In a close match from start to finish the teams were level on a number of occasions and went in level at half time five each. The match continued in the same manner for the second half, both teams exchanging points, until two late scores sealed victory for the boys.

Double Celebration in Community Games

There was great excitement in Markievicz Pk. last Tuesday evening when both under 10 mixed and under 12 girls teams won the Community Games County Finals. The under 10s were in the final having beaten Rosses Point, St. Mary’s and St. Feichin’s along the way. In the final they faced a very strong Curry side, a team that had scored sic goals in their semi-final. Despite this quality our boys were to dominate the first half, holding their opponents score-less. Scores from Cathal Gilligan, Aidan O’ Loughlin, Oisin Choo and Seán Mooney helped establish a substantial lead. A resurgent Curry staged a serious comeback in the second half and the Coolera boys showed great composure to hold off the challenge, eventually running out winners by 3-06 to 1-06. Captain for the night Cathal Gilligan was presented with the cup afterwards. Team; Rory O’ Connor, Steven O’ Connor, Luke Gilgan, Michael Harte, Finn McDaniel, Eoghan Fenton, Seán Mooney (0-01), Cathal Gilligan (3-01), Oisin Choo (0-02), Michael McDonnell, Aidan O’ Loughlin (0-02), Joe Behan, Briain Cullinan, Charlie Fenton, Michael Craddock, Seán Hannon.

The under 12 girls emulated their clubmates with a good win over St. Mary’s in their final. In a relatively close first half, it was the scoring power of Orna Murphy that paved the way for victory, accounting for 1-04 of the half-time tally of 2-05. Eva White’s goal and a point from Alana Wilson made up the remainder. The third quarter saw the girls take control and six more goals (three from Alana, two from Clodagh Martyn and another from Orna) killed off the St. Mary’s hopes. Luisa Mooney rounded off the scoring with her first point of the year. It was a win based on a very tight defence with Lisa Kilfeather, Anna McDaniel, and Nessa O’ Sullivan in particular stopping the opposition attacks. Any threat that managed to get through was dealt with by Áine Morahan who was excellent in goals. Afterwards Breda Martyn presented the cup to Ellen Walsh, who, unfortunately could not play due to injury. Team. Áine Morahan, Laoise McKenna, Lisa Kilfeather, Anna McDaniel, Nessa O’ Sullivan, Eva White (1-00), Orna Murphy (2-05), Orlaith Beirne, Alana Wilson (3-01), Susannah Gilligan, Clodagh Martyn (2-00), Áine Harte, Hannah Bohan, Lauren Dalton, Luisa Mooney (0-01), Ellen Walsh.

Under 14 Girls

The under 14 girls had a comprehensive victory over Ballisodare last Tuesday. In a one-sided encounter the girls played some great football, particularly in the second half. There were good performances throughout the team, and it augurs well for the future that the team is improving with each game. Team; Susannah Garcia, Ciara Lindsay, Mary-Kate KcPartland, Cliodhna Davitt, Grace Molloy, Holly Gilligan, Cliodhna O’ Sullivan, Amy Deering, Beibhinn Harte, Keri Mitchell, Enya Hughes, Emma O’ Loughlin. Score; 13-04 to 2-05.

Under 12 Boys

Our under 11/12 boys had a tough match with neighbours St. Mary’s last Tuesday. Both teams were to end on the losing side, despite their best efforts. Next up is a home tie with St. John’s on June 13th.

Sligo Primary Schools Hurling All-Stars

Congratulations to Thomas Kinane, Shane O’ Loughlin and Oisin Whelan who represented their schools on the Sligo Primary Schools Hurling All-Stars team that participated in the Connacht Blitz last week in Galway. Hopefully it was the first of many future appearances in the county colours for the boys.

Junior League

A last gasp goal deprived our juniors of a third victory when they played Drumcliffe/Rosses Point in Oxfield last Saturday. In what was a close match from start to finish, some wayward shooting and three point blank saves from the Drumcliffe goalkeeper were to prove costly as our boys lost out by a single point 2-10 to 0-15. Level at half-time (1-05 to 0-08), the teams exchanged points throughout the second half, before Coolera-Starndhill opened up a two point lead, scores coming from Kieran Prior, Martin Savage, David Kilrehill and Seán Callaghan. However, just as time was up the home side broke through the defence to shoot to the roof of the net to clinch the win. Next up is a home tie with St. John’s on the 11th at 12.00. Team; Liam Heneghan, Mark Connell, Diarmuid Loftus, Seán Callaghan Christy Walsh, Ryan McEnroe, David Kilrehill, Ronan Redmond, Eoin Macken, Kieran Prior, Mark Comerford, John Kilrehill, Patrick Gillen, Alan Scanlon, Martin Savage, James Hampson.

U12 Girls

The under 12 girls brought their league campaign to a close with a victory over Shamrock Gaels in the A Shield Final. In what was a new departure for the LGFA County all under 12 teams got to play in Markievicz Park on Saturday 3rd June, and a total of eight finals were played. Our girls were in the A Shield final, having lost out on a place in the Cup final. They got off to a very good start and led by 4 points to no score at the end of the first quarter. It was a lead that they never relinquished, and a dominant third quarter saw them extend the lead and they eventually won on a score of 15 to 4. Orna Murphy and Eva White dominated from the start. Orna’s endless running through the opposition defence led to her scoring eleven points. Eva’s high catching and ability to gain possession ensured the Shamrock Gaels forwards were deprived of scoring opportunities, while also contributing three points herself. Aoife Gormley’s versatility meant that she could move from midfield to full back when playing into the wind to add height to the defence. She was well supported by Nessa O’ Sullivan whose positional sense meant that very little ball got through. There were many fine individual performances, notably from the aforementioned few, along withMary-Kate McPartland, Lisa Kilfeather, Clodagh Martyn, Úna Griffin, Luna Simeoni, Anna McDaniel and goalkeeper Áine Morahan, but this was a full team display with good passing and support play throughout. Team; Áine Morahan, Luisa Mooney, Lisa Kilfeather, Anna McDaniel, Mary-Kate McPartland, Nessa O’ Sullivan, Eva White (0-03), Aoife Gormley, Orlaith Beirne (0-01), Orna Murphy (0-11), Alana Wilson, Susannah Gilligan, Clodagh Martyn, Úna Griffin, Lauren Healy, Ellen Walsh, Ava Griffin, Áine Harte, Hannah Bohan, Grace Bailey, Lauren Dalton, Rachel Gallagher, Luna Simeoni, Laoise McKenna, Bronagh Cusack.

Senior League

Our senior footballers had a very good win over St. John’s in Stenson Park on Sunday. The teams were level on points in joint second place in the league going into this match, so a good result was crucial to maintain the push for promotion. Playing with the wind in the first half Coolera-Strandhill managed to put 1-03 on the scoreboard before the home side registered their first point; the goal, a fisted effort by Mark McCallion. By half time the lead was extended to eight points (2-06 to 0-04), a second goal coming from Keelan Cawley, in addition to four Barry O’ Mahony points and a brace from Karol O’Neill. A goal from the penalty spot from Barry O’ Mahony early in the second half sealed the win and further points from Karl O’ Reilly (0-02), Keelan Cawley (0-02), Gary Cawley (0-01) along with two frees fro Barry left the score 3-13 to 0-08 at full time. It was a good team display, with strong performances from Gary Cawley, Peter Laffey, Kevin Banks and Keelan Cawley. Karol O’ Neill and Barry O’ Mahony were a constant threat in attack and Kevin Kelly was very safe as the last line of defence. Next up is a Benson Cup match against the same opposition on Saturday evening.

U12 Hurling

Coolera Strandhill U12 hurlers played Tubbercurry on Tuesday last at Ransboro in what was an open game of hurling which was allowed flow by ref John Doyle. Tubbercurry took the game to Coolera Strandhill from the start scoring 2 points from play with direct running. However Oisin Hennessy scored a fine point on the run to spark the Coolera Strandhill boys into life and this was quickly followed by points from Jack McDaniel (free) and Mark Keane. This settled the boys who showed some fine blocking and hooking skills to stop Tubbercurry’s running game. Goal Keeper Cathal Hughes made two good saves to keep the Tubber forwards at bay. Another point from Shane O’Loughlin left the half time score 4 scores to three in favour of Coolera Strandhill. In the second half, Jack Feeney led by example showing the boys the determination needed to overcome the Tubbercurry challenge with fine display of tackling. The forwards settled into the second half with Ronan Adams and Oisin Whelan winning frees at vital stages, which were converted by Thomas Kinane and Oisin Hennessy. In the end Coolera Strandhill ran out winners 8 scores to 6 scores.

Overall it was much improved display by the team from the Castleconnor match with Kevin Davitt and Aidan Moran making key interceptions throughout the match and Tadgh Dogget and Jack McDaniell stopping the running game of Tubber assisted by midfielders Oisin Hennessey and Jack Feeney. The forwards of Shane O’Loughlin, Oisin Whelan, Ronan Adams and Mark Keane took some fine scores and won vital frees throughout the match. The introduction of Ultan Bree, Aidan O’Loughlin and Tadhg Murphy revitalised the team, making vital blocks and clearances.

Team: Cathal Hughes,Kevin Davitt,Aidan Moran, Tadgh Doggett, Jack McDaniel, Oisin Hennessy, Shane O’Loughlin, Oisin Whelan, Mark Keane, Thomas Kinnane, Jack Feeney, Aidan O’Loughlin, Ronan Adams. Ultan Bree, Tadgh Murphy.

U10 Hurling

U10 and u12 hurling training continues in Ransboro pitch on Saturday mornings. U12s meet at 10.45, and the U10s start at 11.00am. Training finishes at 12.00.

Junior Ladies

The junior ladies finished their league campaign in style with a comprehensive victory over Curry in Scarden last Wednesday. With Jacqui Mulligan dominant at centre half back and the midfield pair of Mary Stenson and Ruth Goodwin running tirelessly to set up numerous scoring opportunities, the girls were to run up an impressive tally of 4-17 to their opponents 3-05. Jacqui herself would finish with 0-03, while Mary and Ruth shared four points. Top scorer Laura-Ann Laffey contributed 2-05, while Attracta Halloran was once again very effective at half forward and added 0-04. Ciara Healy continued her goal-scoring run with a well taken effort, and Claire Stenson, making the switch from defence to attack, notched up a point. Substitute Gráinne Redmond finished the scoring with a well placed shot to the corner of the net. There were very impressive performances also from Cara Gilligan and Éilis Callaghan. In defence, Jacqui Mulligan was well supported by Aislinn Doggett, Caoimhe O’ Sullivan, and Laura Joyce, while Kaela Kerrigan was also very effective in curbing many Curry attacks. It was a satisfactory conclusion to a league that was to be a real learning experience for the younger players, and the manner in which the team played the latter stages shows promise for the championship.

Team; Sarah Lindsay, Caoimhe O’ Sullivan, Kaela Kerrigan, Ciara McCormack, Aislinn Doggett, Jacqui Mulligan, Laura Joyce, Ruth Goodwin, Mary Senson, Éilis Callaghan, Laura-Ann Laffey, Attracta Halloran, Ciara Healy, Cara Gilligan, Claire Stenson; subs; Lauren McGarry (Claire Stenson) Catherine Porter (Laura Joyce), Gráinne Redmond (Ciara McCormack) Eimear Joyce, Ellen Prior.

Senior League

Our senior footballers got back to winning ways with a comprehensive win over Owenmore Gaels in Ransboro on Saturday evening.

Under 12 Girls

Our under 12 girls suffered their first defeat of the year last Thursday when they lost to CT Gaels in the League semi-final. Despite a good start which saw our girls lead 02-00 at the end of the first quarter, the home side began to exert pressure on our defence through the middle quarters and built up a substantial lead. To their credit, the girls never gave up and came back into contention at the start of the final quarter and cut the lead to four points. However CT regrouped and ran out comfortable winners in the end. It was a disappointing end to a very good league for the under 12s, but they can be extremely proud of their achievements. Orna Murphy, Eva White, Alana Wilson and Clodagh Martyn were once again on the scoresheet, while Lisa Kilfeather, Mary-Kate McPartland and Nessa O’ Sullivan were brilliant in defence. Others to impress were Aoife Gormley, Luna Simeoni, Luisa Mooney and Orlaith Beirne. They now have a Shield final to look forward to, when they play Shamrock Gaels at 1.05pm on Sat. June 3rd in Markievicz Park.

Under 14 Boys

Our u-14 boys played their fifth league game last Friday night against a physically superior St John’s side. The first half was a close affair with scores from Cormac Murphy, Conor Keane and Mark McDaniel leaving us with a single point deficit at the break. St John’s however were on the scoreboard early in the second half and their powerful running from midfield proved difficult for us to contain. Owen McKirdy was again outstanding in defence, Ross Doherty provided heroics in goal and Naoise Brennan never shirked his task against formidable opponents. Andrew Lynch, Ryan Young and Mark McDaniel all contributed to the second half scoreboard with Cathal Moraghan and Jarlath Herbert unlucky with their efforts. Next up is a home game against Shamrock Gaels on Friday evening.

Under 16 Boys

Our under 16s boys played Curry in round 5 of the league in Ransboro on 15 May. We trailed at half time on a scoreline of 0.04 to 2.04, our scores coming from Donagh Flynn, Tristan Gilligan and Keelan Harte. Aided by the breeze our boys put in a fine second half performance and had levelled matters with five minutes remaining. The game could have gone either way at this stage with Lee Wilson’s late effort for a goal just clearing the cross bar. There were fine performances from Orin Mitchell, Rory McVeigh and Tristan Gilligan in defence, Lee Wilson and Fiachra Staunton in mid field and Donagh Flynn, Keelan Harte and Sam McDermott in attack. Team squad and scorers were as follows: Cian Connell, Orin Mitchell, Jack Cawley, Tristan Gilligan(0.1), Jack Molloy, Fiachra Staunton, Lee Wilson(0.6), Donagh Flynn(0.1), Keelan Harte (0.6), Josh Gilligan, Ryan Young, Sam Mc Dermott(0.1), Stephen Lynch, Jim Henehan, Liam Gilligan, Cormac Murphy. Next game is away to Ballymote/ Bunninadden on Thursday 25 May at 7 pm.

Under 14 Girls

The under 14 girls played host to Eoghan Rua last Tuesday (16th). Despite their best efforts they were to lose out on a score of 7-08 to 2-11. As the score suggests it was the concession of goals, in addition to some missed chances at the other end that was to prove costly. The girls were well in contention in the first half with 1-01 from both Beibhinn Harte and Shona Dalton, and points from Cliodhna O’ Sullivan (0-02) and Hannah Burrows (0-01) leaving them trailing by three points 4-02 to 2-05. The visitors began to make their physical superiority count as the second half progressed, and our girls could only add on six points from Shona, Amy Deering and Hannah Burrows. On a tough evening for the girls there were fine performances from the O’ Sullivan sisters, Cliodhna and Nessa, Beibhinn Harte, Amy Hampson, Keri Mitchell, Shona Dalton and Amy Deerimg. Their next match is an away tie against Ballisodare on Tuesday 30th. Team; Ciara Lindsay, Amy Hampson, Nessa O’ Sullivan, Grace Molloy, Cliodhna Davitt, Beibhinn Harte, Cliodhna O’ Sullivan, Emma O’ Loughlin, Shona Dalton, Keri Mithcell, Hannah Burrows, Enya Hughes. Subs; Aoife Gormley, Holly Gilligan, Amy Deering.

Junior League

Our junior team made it two wins in a row when they defeated St. Farnan’s in Ransboro Pk. on Saturday evening. Following on from their 4-08 to 2-08 victory over Castleconnor the previous week, they continued their good run of form and ran up an impressive tally of 3-18 while keeping their opponents to 2-07.

Skills Competition

Congrats to Mark McDaniel who represented the club at the Skills Competition in Scarden last week. Mark performed really well and finished a very creditable fourth. Well done Mark.

Junior Ladies

Our junior ladies recorded their first win on Sunday when they defeated St. Molaise Gaels by 5-17 to 0-11 in Grange. It was a match that the girls dominated from the start, yet the half-time score didn’t reflect this as they only led by 1-07 to 0-07. The home side began the second half with increased intensity and within three minutes had wiped out the lead. However Coolera-Strandhill settled and a fourth Attracta Halloran point was quickly followed by a goal from Laura Ann Laffey, before Ciara Healy scored her second goal, to settle the team. From then on the result was never in doubt, and a well deserved maiden win was achieved. In a whole team effort, Ruth Goodwin, Laura Ann Laffey, Attracta Halloran, Éilis Callaghan and Jessica Halloran excelled, while in defence Jacqui Mulligan led by example and was well supported by Caoimhe O’ Sullivan, Ciara McCormack and Kaela Kerrigan. The next match is against Curry tomorrow (Wednesday). Team; Sarah Lindsay, Ciara McCormack, Kaela Kerrigan, Caoimhe O’ Sullivan (Aislinn Doggett), Jacqui Mulligan (0-03), Claire Stenson (Cara Gilligan), Ruth Goodwin (0-01) (Claire Stenson), Mary Stenson (0-02), Éilis Callaghan (0-01), Laura-Ann Laffey (1-01), Attracta Halloran (1-08), Ciara Healy (Lauren McGarry) (2-01), Jessica Halloran (1-01)

U16 Girls.

Our under 16 girls suffered defeat in their second league fixture, at home to C.T. Gaels last Tuesday. The girls started well and dominated the early exchanges but failed to convert their possession into scores. This was to prove costly as a strong C.T. Gaels team settled into the game and went into half time with a 1-05 to 0-00 lead. To their credit, the Coolera girls battled their way into the game at the start of the second half with some well taken scores from Holly Gilligan, Amy Hampson (0-02) and Beibhinn Harte. The visitors however imposed themselves again and ran out convincing winners. Despite the result there were strong defensive displays from Ellen Given, Gráinne Redmond and Nadine Deering. Aislinn Doggett and Caoimhe O’ Sullivan, before the latter’s withdrawal with a foot injury, worked tirelessly in the middle of the field. In attack Roisín Heneghanwas very effective and the introduction of Holly Gilligan, Beibhinn Harte and Amy Hampson provided fresh impetus after half time. Next is a home tie with St. Michael’s. Team; Sarah Lindsay, Ellen Given, Cliodhna O’ Sullivan (Amy Deering), Gráinne Redmond, Nadine Deering, Grace Molloy (Ciara Lindsay), Caoimhe O’ Sullivan (Beibhinn Harte), Aislinn Doggett, Roisín Heneghan, Eilis Burke (Lauren Donaghy), Eimear Callaghan (Holly Gilligan), Danika Kerrigan (Amy Hampson), Ellen Prior.

U12 Boys start with victory.

Both our U 12 teams played in round 1 of the under 12 league last Tuesday when we travelled to Keash to play Eastern Harps. Our Division 1 team ran out convincing winners on a scoreline of 0-20 to 0-5.Team on duty Kealon Schoen, Oisin O Neill, Alfie Mc Dermott, Aiden Moran, Oisin Hennessy, Eoghan Healy, Kevin Davitt, Andrew Connell, Tadhg Doggett, Oran Harte and Thomas Lee.

Our Division 3 team game was a much closer affair with some excellent football played by both teams. The game was in the melting pot right up to the last quarter when we pulled away to win on a scoreline of 0-17 to 0-13. Team on duty; David Kennedy, Ciallan O Neill, Hughie Doherty, Mark Keane, Oisin Whelan, Ronan Adams, Cathal Hughes, Thomas Kinane and Cathal Giligan.

Next game is at home to Ballymote /Buninadden.

Junior Girls

Our junior girls faced Owenmore Gaels in the Spring Cup in Ransboro on Sunday April 2nd. On a day when the home side fielded no less than six under sixteen girls in their team, victory was never going to come easy. So it proved for this young team who battled gamely, but were ultimately not strong enough for their much more experienced opponents. Second half scores from Mary Stenson (1-03) and Aislinn Doggett (0-01) were among the highlights. The girls now begin their league campaign with a tough match at home to C.T. Gaels. Team; Sarah Lindsay, Cara Gilligan, Kaela Kerrigan, Caoimhe O’ Sullivan, Ciara McCormack, Nadine Deering (Lauren McGarry), Mary Stenson, Laura Joyce, Roisín Heneghan, Aislinn Doggett, Éilis Callaghan, Gráinne Redmond, Ciara Healy.

Dermot Molloy Senior Hurling League

Our senior hurlers got their season off to a winning start with a 3-14 to 3-07 victory over Calry/St. Joseph’s in the Dermot Molloy League on Sunday. Calry, missing a number of their regular squad following their extended campaign in the 2016 national junior competition, were quick to settle with an early goal. In near perfect conditions, but playing against the stiff breeze in the first half Coolera-Strandhill recovered well with some good points from play. Kieran Prior, playing in his first match at senior level was among the scorers with some well taken points from the wing. First-half goals from Marc Comerford and Troy Hickey saw Coolera leading by 2-8 to 1-4 at half-time. With six players featuring in their first senior hurling match, Coolera continued to push the pace in the second half with a second goal from Troy Hickey. Calry-St responded with two goals of their own to narrow the gap at the final whistle to a scoreline of 3-14 to 3-7 for the home side. The next league match will be against St. Mary's Carrick on Shannon also at Ransboro Park. Team: C. Scanlon, N. Cadden (Capt.), J. Porter, B. Tobin, F.Morrissey, F. O Flynn, C. Gillen, K. Prior, C. O Mahony, M. Comerford, T. Hickey, S. Chambers, S. Brenan, S. Callaghan, D. Tobin, A. Scanlon, L. Comerford.

We wish Ronan, Patrick, their management teams, parents and boys a very enjoyable day.

U16 Boys

Our under 16 boys had their first victory of the season with a hard earned win over Eastern Harps in Ransboro Park last Thursday. Some fine defensive work from Oran McDonagh and a goal from Keelan Harte helped us to 1.07 to 0.4 lead at half time. Eastern Harps started the second half strongly and had our lead down to one point within ten minutes. However Coolera regrouped and goals from Lee Wilson, Ciaran Flynn, Sam McDermott and Keelan Harte helped secure the win on a scoreline of 5.11 to 2.11. Team was as follows: Cian Connell, Orin Mitchell, Jack Murphy (0-01), Jack Molloy, Oran McDonagh, Jack Cawley, Tristan Gilligan (0-02), Lee Wilson (1-01), Josh Gilligan, Keelan Harte (2-04), Ciaran Flynn (1-03), SamMcDermott (1-0), Jim Henehan, Subs used: Rory McVeigh, Stephen Lynch.

U12 Girls

The under 12 girls started their league campaign with a home tie against Drumcliffe/Rosses Point last Friday. It proved to be a very tight affair, played in perfect conditions. It was significant for Luisa Mooney, Ava Griffin, Úna Griffin, Áine Harte, Laoise McKenna, Lauren Dalton and Lauren Healy as it was their first outing at under 12. There was never more than a point between the teams for the first three quarters, with the sides level on six occasions. It was during the last quarter that the home side began to pull away with points coming from Alana Wilson, Orna Murphy and Eva White.

Clodagh Martyn started the scoring with a well taken fisted point. Ellen Walsh added two before the end of the first quarter to leave the sides level. It was point for point in the second quarter too, Orna Murphy, Alana Wilson and Ellen Walsh with her third point, adding to the Coolera tally. Anna McDaniel, Laoise McKenna, Mary-Kate McPartland, Susannah Gilligan and Nessa O’ Sullivan were strong in defence for the hosts, and coped well with most attacks. The final quarter saw Eva White and Orna dominate midfield while Alana Wilson caused the visitors defence many problems and helped Coolera-Strandhill to a 12 points to 8 victory.

Next assignment is an equally tough tie with neighbours St. Mary’s on Friday evening. Team; Áine Morahan, Laoise McKenna, Anna McDaniel, Susannah Gilligan, Mary-Kate McPartland, Nessa O’ Sullivan, Orna Murphy (0-04), Ava Griffin, Úna Griffin, Alana Wilson (0-03), Ellen Walsh (0-03), Luisa Mooney Clodagh Martyn (0-01), Áine Harte, Lauren Healy, Lauren Dalton, Eva White (0-01), Lisa Kilfeather,

U14 Boys

The under 14s had their 2nd league outing on Friday night under lights in Tourlestrane. The home team got off to a strong start taking an early lead dominating the early exchange and held a 1-9 to 2-2 lead at half time. After the break Tourlestrane took control in the middle of the field and got two quick goals which gave them a comfortable lead. It was tough going from there for our lads who kept battling on but were beaten by a much stronger team. Best for Coolera were Ross Doherty, Rory Kinnane and Cormac Henehan. Team lined out as follows; Cathal Morahan, Owen McKirdy, Jamie Kilfeather, Jamie Walsh, Ben Cawley, Rory Kinnane, Ross Doherty, Ciaran Langan, Liam Gilligan, Conor Keane, Andrew Lynch, Mark McDaniel, Cormac Murphy, Cormac Henehan, Cormac Correria.

Annual Club Social

The Club Social took place on Saturday (28th) in Coolera House. An attendance in excess of 150 was present to celebrate the efforts and activities of the club in 2016. After dinner was served, club player Seán Callaghan, with James McManus, got the entertainment underway with a fantastic set consisting of many old favourites from Johnny Cash, Oasis and Christy Moore to name but a few. Club chairman Philip Maree, in his speech, commended the work of the many volunteers who helped the club to progress in 2016. He paid special tribute to the grounds committee who ensured that the facilities were up to standard all year. He also thanked his committee for its efforts throughout the year, and paid tribute to the young players who ensured that the club would be competing at senior level in 2017. Medals were presented to the senior hurling team following success in the Dermot Molloy League. Kieran Tobin also presented Thomas Moran with the award for Senior Hurler of the year. The award for Senior Footballer of the year was presented by Cathal Martyn to Diarmaid Mulcahy after a fantastic debut season in the senior ranks. Minor footballer of the year was Eoin Macken and this was presented (in his absence) to his father Peadar by Adam Murphy. For the first time ever there was an award for Minor LGFA Footballer of the year, and this award went to fifteen year old Caoimhe O' Sullivan after a very consistent season. Pat Kerrigan presented Caoimhe's mother Ann with the trophy. The final award of the evening, Club Person of the Year went to Frank O' Sullivan who was presented with the award by Club Chairman Philip Maree. A hugely entertaining evening was had by all in attendance and many thanks must go to the organising committee, and to everyone who sponsored prizes for the raffle.

Scór na nÓg

Our Scór na nÓg quiz team of Kevin Harte, Fiona Stenson, Sam McDermott and Maria Henehan acquitted themselves very well in the County Final held in Ballisodare. They featured in the top three throughout the competition, and were unfortunate to drop to fourth position at the very end. It was an excellent performance, and great credit is due to this young team.
