West U21 A Final

West U21 A Final
Shannon Gaels 1-10
Clann na nGael 0-2
Athea was the setting for the final of this year’s U21 West final which pitted us against the newly formed Knockaderry-Monagea-Feoghanagh combination, Clan na Gael. It was a nervous start from both sides but after ten minutes we had a 3 points to 1 lead. In the 20th minute, Brendan Flanagan caught a final high ball in the square and made no mistake with the finish to the back of the net. Flanagan followed up with a pointed free two minutes later putting us firmly in control. Dara Noonan who played well throughout latched onto a pinpoint pass from James Wallace and kicked a fine point. Score at half time, 1-5 to 0-1 to Shannon Gaels.
We didn’t ease up and by the time the 46th minute came around, Brendan Flanagan had added two further long range frees off either foot, while Noonan had also tacked on another point to the scoreboard. With ten minutes to go, Martin in goals showed great acrobatics to pull off a wonderful diving save. As the game drew to a close, Jim Liston’s accurate crossfield ball was caught by James Wallace, who slotted over the black spot, just before Brendan Flanagan kicked over the last point of the game from a free. Final score Shannon Gaels 1-10 Clan na Gael 0-2.
It was a wonderful team performance with all players showing heart and determination throughout. Even in difficult conditions, the exhibition of clean tackling, high fielding, accurate kick passing and fine score taking were a joy to behold and this young team and their management deserve great credit for this display.
Team: S. Martin, J. Fitzgerald, B. Stack, S. Barrett, John Wallace, C. McSweeney, R. Culhane, B. Long, J. Liston (capt.), M. McSweeney, S Horan, G. Stack, James Wallace, D. Noonan, B. Flanagan Subs: J. O’Neill, C. Culhane, G.Fitzgerald, K. Lenihan, Scannell, S. Cregan, C. Cregan, C. O Shaughnessy , P. Cregan, , S. Cregan, M. Moore, J. Scannell, E. Woulfe.
AGM
The Glin GAA Club AGM is set for the 5th of Jan at 8.30 in clubhouse. Motions to be given to the club secretary by December 29th.
Fixture
We play Pallasgreen in the County U21 semi final on Friday, Dec. 1st at 8.15pm in Mick Neville Park, Rathkeale. All support welcome and greatly appreciated.
Sympathy
Glin GAA would like to extend their deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Pat Martin, who passed away tragically last week. Pat played for the club during the 80s and early 90s and was an outstanding forward. While still a minor, he was a key member of the Glin U21 side that narrowly lost the West final to St. Kieran’s in 1985, scoring 1-1 from centre forward in that final. In the years that followed he often lined out alongside brothers Ger and Billy on the U21 and senior teams. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal.

GB Rovers ⚽ U12 Div 1

The GB Rovers U.12 (Division 1) team had a great win today in the U.12 cup against Abbeyfeale in Abbey Rovers pitch. It was a super game of soccer and both teams should be proud of their performances today. GB Rovers had the most pressure in the first half and had a few chances but the game was extremely close with great skills and commitment being shown on both sides.
Shortly after half-time GB went ahead with a well taken goal by Lee Mulvihill. However Abbeyfeale upped the pressure and after Jamie Riordan made a great save the ball rebounded out to an Abbeyfeale player who scored in the confusion.
The game continued nip and tuck until the final whistle and ended in a draw. As it was a cup game extra time was needed. In the first half of extra time it was still very close until GB got a corner. Tom Healy got the ball and took a powerful shot which was deflected into the net by an Abbeyfeale player. GB held out for the remainder of the game to win 2-1. It was a great game and all the players involved deserve great praise.
The GB Rovers squad was Jamie Riordan, Aidan Healy,, David Mulvihill, Colm McNamara, Orla McNamara, Ella O’Connor, Tom Healy, Cillian Mulvihill, Charlie McDonagh, Donnadh Daly, Lee Mulvihill, Tabo and Sean McEnry,

⚽ Last Man Standing 💰

Glin Rovers… WE HAVE A WINNER !!!!

Congratulations to Paul Read who has won this round of the Glin Rovers Last Man Standing. Paul is one of the punters from the Harp and Hound bar in Mystic, Connneticut who recently visited Glin during the Coursing weekend.

It was an exciting finish tothe competition. 13 punters got knocked out during the 3:00 Saturday games because of Southampton, Leicester and (mainly) Newcastle). This left Paul and Mary Hogan as the only two left. Paul had picked Liverpool who were on the 5:30 Saturday game and they won easily at West Ham. That left Mary Hogan who had picked Watford away to Everton in the Sunday game. This game was a bit of a rollercoaster. After a boring nil all first half, Watford came out with all guns blazing and scored 2 goals. With 67 minutes gone and 2 goals up Mary must have been thinking of what team to pick next week but Everton made a big comeback and ended up winning 3 -2 handing the competition to Paul Read.

If anyone wants to see the selections that the winner (or anyone else) made throughout the competition, you can check it out at https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3_Th2p-CBJIb09ISTE3ZXFETFE

Once again many thanks to all the punters, the sellers and the committee that have made this round of the LMS such a success again. It’s a pity more people didn’t get a longer run this time around, the carnage in Week 1 was unprecedented.

Well done to Paul Read. Apparently the party in the Harp and Hound is already well under way.

Glin Rovers F.C. Latest news/matches

GLIN ROVERS A Advance to the last 64 in the FAI Junior Cup.
Glin Rovers A V Fenit Samphires 3-3 AET, Glin win on Penalties 4-2.
An exciting game in Glin went all the way to a penalty shootout after which Glin Rovers will be in the draw for the last 64 teams in the country in the FAI Junior Cup.
Fenit Samphires are currently one of the best teams in the KDL league and came into this game as favourites but Glin Rovers A put in a great performance today. Fenit were by far the better team in the opening 20 minutes and hit the crossbar after only 2 minutes, it was a warning as to how good a team, technically, they are. Glin were in a rear-guard action for most of the opening exchanges but were holding off sweeping Fenit attacks on both wings. Fenit went ahead on 33 minutes with a shot from about 30 yards out, low to the right hand post. The goal seemed to galvanise Glin’s resolve and from the 35th minute they completely took control of proceedings and had a good chance on 45 minutes from a good shot from Shane Culhane from outside the box which went narrowly over the Fenit crossbar. Glin took the game to Fenit and got a deserved equaliser on 43 minutes when Darren Sheahan headed in a looping header into the far right hand side of the Fenit Goal. It could not have come at a better moment in the game. The sides went in level at half time, Glin must have been the happier of the 2 teams at this point as Fenit had put Glin’s Midfield of Joe Martin, Dave Culhane, Kevin Sweeney, Shane Culhane and our back line of Karol Geoghegan, Brian O Donovan, Gary Culhane and James Wallace under the cosh for a lot of the first half but to Glins Credit they more than held their own for the most part.
Karol Geoghegan and James Wallace and Joe Martin were keeping the Fenit midfield occupied in the second half, their runs forward were preventing Fenit driving forward with their own attacks as Glin was holding on to the ball more than Fenit wanted. Gary Culhane and Brian O Donovan were outstanding today both on the ground and in the air. They are some combination at the heart of the Glin Rear-guard. Time and Time again they put themselves in front of Fenit players and either blocked or game away with the ball.
In the second half it was the tackling and physicality of Culhane and Sweeney in Glin’s midfield that turned the game for us. Darren Sheahan showed all of his experience today acting as a 5th midfielder at times whilst combining with the excellent Ger Riordan on many occasion to threaten the Samphire lines.
2 Minutes into the second half Ger Riordan was awful unlucky not to score when the Fenit keeper made a great save from him at close range inside the box but on 60 minutes he showed a real touch of class with Glin’s second goal. Following a brilliant releasing ball from Darren Sheahan Ger showed speed and guile, in a race to the fenit box Ger outsprinted, out muscled his oppossite man, twice nutmegging him before he cooly struck the ball low into the back of the Fenit Net. It was now a 2-1 lead to Glin in what was becoming a great cup tie. Glin got a corner on 76 minutes following more good work from Ger Riordan. Gary Culhane sent in a brilliant corner from the left hand side and Dave Culhane reacted the fastest in a goalmouth scramle to scoop the ball into the top of the net just under the cross bar. It gave Glin a 3-1 lead. We brought on David O Sullivan, Jack Costello and Jamie Fitzgerald in the second half to give us some freshness as Fenit dug deep and came back into this game very well in the last 20 minutes. They pulled one back on 82 minutes with a close range effort and cruelly for Glin they equalised in time added on to send the game to Extra Time.
The Extra time finished scoreless so the game went to penalties. Glin Rovers A held their own in the penalty shoot out and with spot kicks from Darren Sheahan, Dave Culhane, Kevin Sweeney and Gary Culhane we went through 4-2 on the penalty count as Fenit missed 2 spot kicks.
Huge Congrats to the Players and Managers, Mike McLoughlin, Gavin Sheehan and Shane Culhane for a terrific win.
Team: M Stack, K Geoghegan, B O Donovan, G Culhane, J Wallace, S Culhane, K Sweeney, D Culhane, Joe Martin, G Riordan, D Sheahan, J Fitzgerald, J Costello, J Wallace & D O’Sullivan.
Best of luck to Paul Sheahan, Tommy & Tadhag Culhane who embark on a 6 month U.N. Peacekeeping Tour of Duty with the Irish Defence Forces on the 17 November.

Glin Parish Pastoral Council – Ireland World Meeting of Families.

WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES 2018.

Pope Francis chose Ireland to host next year’s World Meeting of Families to make sure Irish Catholics would take part in a ‘revolution’ promoting marriage and family life, one of the Pope’s key advisors has said. … Speaking to The Irish Catholic about the Autumn 2018 event, Cardinal Kevin Farrell explained that Pope Francis is under no illusions about how family life in Ireland is changing in line with the rest of Europe. “He understands that – he doesn’t think that Ireland is some miracle,” he said. “Nobody thinks that, but he thinks there’s a great spirit in the Irish people of giving of themselves to others, and of taking leadership roles…”

Read more in an article by Greg Daly in the Irish Catholic.

As we prepare – can you pray the official prayer of World Meeting of Families 2018 – and share it in your home, so others can too.

God, our Father,
We are brothers and sisters in Jesus your Son,
One family, in the Spirit of your love.

Bless us with the joy of love.

Make us patient and kind,
gentle and generous,
welcoming to those in need.
Help us to live your forgiveness and peace.

Protect all families with your loving care,
Especially those for whom we now pray:

[We pause and remember family members and others by name].

Increase our faith,
Strengthen our hope,
Keep us safe in your love,
Make us always grateful for the gift of life that we share.

This we ask, through Christ our Lord,
Amen

The Glin Pastoral Council are in the planning stages of hosting some all inclusive events in Glin to mark and celebrate this wonderful event, which will see the blessed presence of Pope Francis next August. The Feast of the Holy Family is 31st December ‘17,
so we will plan something around this feast day for a start, and we are hopeful of parish participation from young and old! Watch this space!

Glin Tidy Towns – Town Park clean-up.

Town Park Clean Up.

Glin TT would like to thank Jim Lynch of TUS for fixing the No Litter sign that was vandalized during the summer. Hopefully it will now be left alone to do its job! A big thanks also to another TUS worker, Desmond Brennan who is doing fantastic work in the town park. He has had his work cut out for him after all the recent storms. He has been busy clearing seaweed, weeds from the many beds , cutting back shrubbery, brushing pats, and lots more. He is rearranging a lot of the beds, taking out shrubs that aren’t working and moving them to more suitable areas, and doing a great job at it. Thanks Desmond 👍 We would appeal to everyone to continue to keep the area/street around their property/foot paths clear of weeds and leaves. It’s nice to see Glin looking clean and tidy all year round 🌿🍃🍁🍂🍃🌼 Glin Pride of Place Winners !  Thank you from Glin Tidy Towns.

Glin Rovers F.C. Notes 15/10/17

Munster Junior Cup 1st Round – Result

Glin Rovers A 2 – 0 Glantine AFC
Scorers: John Wallace and Ger Riordan.

Late brace breaks Glantine’s brave effort.

Glin could have found themselves behind after a sluggish start with Stack making a quick reaction save to see the ball go past his left post and 5mins later some quick defending on the line to keep the home side from scoring. The away side began to settle and get on the ball more with a lot of the play on the left side and down the middle. A number of chances were created through David O Sullivan, John Wallace, Darren Sheahan and Jack Fitzgerald but credit to Glantine’s keeper he saved well to everything that came his way. Glin were dominating in the middle of the field with Kevin Sweeney and Jack Fitzgerald putting a solid effort and winning the aerial battles. Brian O Donovan and Karol Geogehan were centre back partners today with James Wallace and Shane Culhane playing as the full backs and the defensive unit weren’t given away an inch in the defence. Glin continued to press forward in the first half with a number of corners but efforts from Jack Fitz and Kevin Sweeney couldn’t find there way past the Glantine Keeper. Glin pressed hard in the second half and they were dominant all over the field with majority of the play on the final third of the field. David O Sullivan was replaced by Ger Riordan with 25mins to go and instantly Glantines defence were on the back foot with the quick pace of Ger. With 20mins to play John Wallace got himself onto a cross, his firm header had the keeper beat but his effort came off the up right. 5mins later a great through ball from Ger Riordan found Joe Martin on the right wing, Joe sent in a dangerous ball to the near post where John Wallace was looming and to the delight of the away sides dominance his effort was on target and hit the back of the net. Glin continued to press high with some great link play with Shane Culhane, Darren Sheahan and Ger Riordan. With 5mins remaining, Glin took a quick corner, Shane Culhane’s cross found Ger Riordan at the near post and his header found the back of the net to put Glin up 2-0. This was one of the last actions of the game but 2-0 was a deserving win on the day. Glantine battled hard through out the game but Glin’s late changes and composure was key to this win.
Team: Michael Stack. James Wallace, Karol Geogehan, Brian O Donovan, Shane Culhane. David O Sullivan, Kevin Sweeney, Jack Fitzgerald, Joe Martin. Darren Sheahan & John Wallace.
Subs used: Ger Riordan, Jack Costello & Jamie Fitzgerald.

Glin Rovers F.C. Latest Results 24/9/17

Premier Div League Result: 17/9/17
Glin Rovers A V Athea Utd 3-2
A terrific win for the A team this morning with 2 goals from John Wallace and 1 from his brother James securing the 3 points for Glin in a tough game.
Glin Opened the Scoring in the first half with a John Wallace goal but Athea Pulled one back 5 minutes later to make it 1-1. Athea went on to have the better of the last 20 minutes in the first half but Glin’s backline of Karol Geoghegan, Gary Culhane, Brian O’Donovan and James Wallace held steadfast and the game went in level at half time.
Athea went ahead a couple of minutes into the second half but following this Glin went on to grab the game by the scruff of the neck. Glin’s midfield of Joe Martin, Oliver Wallace, Kevin Sweeney and David O Sullivan were instrumental today in helping Glin win. Joe and Olly put in some great tackles today and David O Sullivan was a constant threat down the left wing working very well with Jack Costello. Kevin Sweeney was Glin’s man of the match today, constantly in the thick of the action.
John Wallace put in a great game today and he scored a second in the second half followed by brother James’s goal to give Glin a deserved 3-2 lead going into the last 20 minutes. Athea should have equalised on 88 minutes when a well taken shot from inside the box cannoned off the Crossbar, from that an Athea player hit a great shot from the left handside of the pitch, it was heading into the bottom right hand side of our net only for Michael Stack to somehow as he was moving to his right he managed to change direction and dive low to his left to deflect the ball out for an Athea Corner.

Glin Rovers A v Granagh 2-0
Scorers: Joe Martin & David Sullivan.
Uncle/nephew combination was the key to Glin’s win on Sunday morning.
The A’s travelled to Granagh and came away with all 3 points in a hard fought victory in very tough conditions. Scoring two goals was great in this mornings weather with heavy rain and strong winds but credit to our defence and keeper for keeping a clean sheet. Joe Martin got our first goal in the first half and his nephew David Sullivan scored the second mid way through the second half with two assists from Ger Riordan.
Great credit for the 13 players who played in the terrible conditions and came away with maximum points and a clean sheet.
Team: Michael Stack. Karol Geogehan, Gary Culhane, Brian Donovan, James Wallace. Joe Martin, Kevin Sweeney, Jack Fitzgerald, David Sullivan. Darren Sheahan & Ger Riordan
Subs: Jack Costello for Ger Riordan and John Wallace for David Sullivan.

County Intermediate Play Off

County Intermediate Play Off
Glin 2-14
Cappamore 2-5
Glin retained their intermediate status for 2018 with a well deserved victory over Cappamore. The goals came in either half from Gary Culhane and Karl O’Sullivan. Overall, we had hoped to do better this year but being in the more difficult group coupled with narrow defeats in the early rounds put paid to our ambitions for this year. We can be happy that many new young players got their chance this year. Glin GAA would like to thank Pádraig Hogan and Brendan Guiney for their commitment to the team during the year.

Well Done
Congratulations to Shannon Gaels who were recently crowned West Limerick champions. The Glin-Gerald Griffins combination comprehensively defeated St. Senan’s by 3-15 to 1-4 in Askeaton last Saturday. We wish them well in the county semi final against the winners of the East final, which is on this weekend between Cappamore and Pallasgreen.

Glin team to be Honoured
The Glin team who won the West championship in 1967 will be honoured next Sunday at the West Junior football final. The final between Newcastle West and Fr. Casey’s will take place in Feenagh this Sunday, Sept. 10th at 3pm. Glin beat Kilcolman in the West semi by 1-2 to 0-3 in late August 1967. They then had to wait two months before playing St. Mary’s (Rathkeale) in the West final. The first match ended in the dramatic scoreline of Glin 0-9 St. Mary’s 3-0 before Glin prevailed in the replay. This Glin team at the time contained: J. Sullivan, M. Meade, P.J. Fitzgerald, P. Fitzgerald, D. Culhane, P. Sweeney, D. Hogan, W. Fitzgerald, J. Culhane (capt), T. Healy, D. O’Connor, J. Reidy, D. Fitzgerald, D. Geoghegan, J. Stack, T. Horan.

Sympathy
Glin GAA club would like to extend their deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Mossy Meade, Church St. who passed away recently. Mossy was an integral part of the Glin football team during the late 50s, 60s and early 70s, giving many great performances during that time. Mossy lined out at midfield in the 1958 County Junior final, with the Limerick Leader report of the time stating that Glin’s dominance around the middle of the field played a key role in Magpie’s victory. He was also full back on the great Glin team, listed above, who won the 1967 West Junior Championship. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.

The Architectural History and Restoration of Abbey Leix with William Laffan

Abbey Leix, originally site of a Cistercian monastery founded in the twelfth century, is one of the great Irish country houses. Over the last few decades it has been restored by Sir David Davies, President of the Irish Georgian Society, making it an appropriate subject for this annual lecture named for his predecessor in this role. The talk, by William Laffan, explores the architectural history of the house built by the de Vesci family in the 1770s, using drawing by the various architects who have played a role in its construction, notably James Wyatt, and also examines the landscape of one of the most intact demesnes in Ireland, home to the oldest oak tree in Ireland. It was through the combined scholarship of the Knight of Glin and John Harris that Abbey Leix was correctly identified as the house as the work of Wyatt – it had erroneously been attributed to Robert Adam – and the lecture acknowledge the seminal, and continuing, role that the Knight has played in the study of Irish art and architecture.

William Laffan is a curator and art dealer who has published extensively across a wide variety of cultural topics. The Cries of Dublin (2003) was selected as a book of the year by Roy Foster in the Times Literary Supplement; as was Miscelanea Structura Curiosa (2005) in The Irish Times by Frank Callanan (‘a delight;). Thomas Roberts, Landscape and Patronage in Eighteenth-Century Ireland (2009, written with Brendan Rooney) was described by Toby Barnard in Apollo as ‘a landmark in writing on Irish painting’. In 2014 he co-authored Russborough: A Great Irish House, Its Families and Collectors and the following year was historical advisor to the landmark exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago, Ireland, Crossroads of Art and Design, 1690-1840. He is currently researching a monograph on Nathaniel Hone (1718-84).

Copies of the new book on Abbeyleix (Abbey Leix: An Irish Home and Its Demesne by William Laffan)will be available to purchase at the lecture.

No. 1 Pery Square Hotel, Pery Square, Limerick, at 8pm. €10 entry.

Glin Development and Tidy Towns – results time pending!

Glin Development and Tidy Towns.

Fingers crossed that Glin will perform well in the Tidy Towns results. All the judging is completed and the next stage are the results in September!
It was a great summer and the flowers that were planted out in May and June are at their peak now. There are so many people to thank for all the hard work and effort that was put in to making Glin look clean and vibrant. Thanks to everyone who got involved, whether it was something as simple as picking litter from outside your door to all those who put out fabulous window boxes and hanging baskets, painted their properties, to those who watered the plants, or turned up on Wednesday and Saturday’s for the clean ups, and everyone in between, a huge thanks. It’s the combined efforts that make the difference. Thanks also to the men on the CE scheme and TUS for all their hard work. Their involvement makes a big difference, and they are always very obliging.
Regardless of results, we are proud of our town and it is a labour of love to keep Glin looking attractive for residents and visitors alike. GOOD LUCK GLIN ☘️IMG_0043
