We got our intermediate campaign back on track at the Bog Garden last Thursday evening with a well earned victory over Mungret. Going into the game needing a win to stay in the shake up, our lads put in their best performance of the year. Our opponents started brightly but points from Jack and Paul Sheahan, and Kevin Moore (frees) saw us draw level. On the 20th minute mark, a long pass from Moore found Pádraig Scanlon in the corner, who rounded his man and set up Ger Lyons to palm to the net. Mungret responded with a goal against the run of play before Scanlon added two more point before half time. HT: Mungret 1-7 Glin 1-6.
Kevin Moore opened the second half with a wonderful long range goal from 30 yards out to put us two points ahead. Shortly afterwards, John Wallace swaggered up from corner back to kick a great point for the second game in a row. In the 45th minute, Ger Lyons caught a long raking pass, swivelled, and kicked a fine score from out on the right. Subsequently, Scanlon added another free, and the impressive Jack Sheehan struck over two further points give us five point lead. Though Mungret led an onslaught on our goal for the last ten minutes, composed defending and two top drawer saves from Seán Lyons meant that we saw out the remaining minutes of the game and claimed a deserved two points. Our last group match is against Claughaun, towards the end of August when we will still be in with a shout of making the quarter finals.
Team: Seán Lyons, John Wallace, Tadhg Culhane, Maurice Moore, Ronan Culhane, Brian O’Donovan, Pádraig Costello, Kevin Moore, Paul Sheahan, Jack Sheehan, Darren Sheahan, Shane Culhane (capt.), Gary Culhane, Ger Lyons, Pádraig Scanlon. Subs: Brendan Flanagan for Shane Culhane, Seán Horan for Gary Culhane, Pádraig Horan for Ger Lyons.
Congratulations to the Limerick senior hurling team on reaching the All-Ireland final after a wonderful and dramatic victory over Cork last Sunday. Let us hope they came replicate that performance in the final and bring Liam McCarthy back Shannonside for the first time since 1973.
The Glin/Gerald Griffin’s Cúl Camp is taking place this week at the field. The turnout has been fantastic with over 130 boys and girls taking part, proving that the future of football is bright along this part of the Estuary.
Glin lost to Granagh-Ballingarry 4-2 to 0-6 on Monday evening. The team played well in patches but unfortunately conceded too many scores when the pressure came on.
