On Sunday last our under 21panel travelled to Fr. McGee Park where they played Fr. Manning Gaels in the championship semi final. Weather conditions were very good for the time of year. We started brightly scoring the opening 2 points, both from play. Both sides exchanged 2 further points to leave the scores level midway through the first half. It was our opponents that finished the half the stronger adding 6 unanswered points to leave the half time score Dromard 0-04 Fr. Manning Gaels 0-10. We continued to battle on the resumption and were unlucky not to get early second half scores. Despite being in arrears we finished strongly with Gary Maguire scoring a well-finished goal. The final score was Dromard 1-07 Fr. Manning Gaels 1-18. Team and scorers; Martin McGee, Ronan Smith, Keith Masterson, Conor Kiernan, Michael Reynolds, Ciaran McStay, Neil Cosgrove, Bernard Sheridan (0-01), Peter Reynolds (0-01), David Cosgrove (0-01), Peter Mimnagh, Gary Maguire (1-02), Sean McNerney (0-02), Thomas Kelly, Michael Reilly. Sub used; Conor Smith. We wish speedy recoveries to Kevin Maguire, Declan Mimnagh and Robert Cooke from their injuries. The club would like to thank the panel for the great effort they have put into their games and preparation. Thanks also to the team management of Gerry Sheridan, Paul Hourican Sean Conefrey and Stephen Reilly for the commitment, which they have given to this group and to the various guest coaches who helped out along the way. Thanks to the Fr. Manning Gaels club for facilitating the later throw in. Match reports of earlier rounds will be covered in next weeks issue. Belated congratulations to Sean and Linda Kiernan, Fostra on the birth of their baby daughter recently. Our parish was deeply saddened when word spread of Anna McCabe's untimely passing. The club wishes to extend its sincerest condolences to the McCabe family Drumhaldry at this very difficult time most especially to Anna's sons John, Damien, Gerry, Padraig, Ciaran and Colm. The McCabe family have a long association with the Dromard club through playing, administration or sponsorship, Gerry in particular serving for many years with distinction as club secretary and Ciaran a current player who played on our '08 and '09 under 21championship winning teams. We hope that they will find some consolation and comfort from their many friends in our club. Lotto results for Monday night 14th November 2011. The numbers drawn were 13, 21, 25 and 27.
