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.

Result: Div 2

Glin Homes for the Elderly has launched a Meals-on-Wheels service for the elderly in the locality. If older people are living on their own they often need some assistance in maintaining their independence, staying safe, eating well and leading an active lifestyle. Our Meals-on-Wheels service will help to ensure that participants, in addition to receiving healthy and balanced meals, will also have the added benefits of regular visits by one of our delivery team to ensure that they are safe and well.

Meals,costing 5 euros, include a main course and dessert and are delivered on a daily basis to homes in the town and surrounding district. Meals can also be collected from Glin Day Care Centre by family members or carers. Many people are availing of the service already and we are hoping to finalize our list of participants for the winter months as soon as possible.

Those who because of age,disability or illness are unable to prepare adequate meals for themselves will qualify for the service. If you wish to avail of this service or, as a concerned neighbour or family member, you know of an older person who might be interested in our Meals-on-Wheels service please contact Mary on 0874124808 or Una on 068-26033 for further details.

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. It was a brilliant save from Glin’s NO. 1.
Team: M Stack, K Geoghegan, G Culhane, B O’Donovan, J Wallace, J Martin, K Sweeney, O Wallace, D O’Sullivan, J Costello & J Wallace. E Mulvihill, A Mulvihill & P O’Shaughnessy.

Glin Rovers B v Shountrade 0-2 (17/9/17)
M Sheehy S Barrett A Mulvihill Joe Wallace Pa Killeen S Horan Ed Mulvihill Jointer Darragh and Jonathan Pledge
Premier Div Result: 10/9/17
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.

Limerick Desmond League Division 2 10/9/17

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

Local Hero Jack Sheahan.

There is some wonderful talent in Glin! Glin would like to congratulate Jack Sheahan, son of Pat and Maureen Sheahan, for his outstanding achievement in the Kerry District League (KDL) awards night. Jack wiped the board on the night, he achieved KDL Player of the Year, Youths Player of the Year, Players Player of the Year, and at only 16 years of age, he captained both teams. Well done Jack, this is a fantastic achievement and you are truly an inspiration in the sports world. It was great to see two cups brought over the border to Limerick! We wish you every success in the future.

More illegal dumping in Glin😡

 

Just out for a nice walk with the dog, went down by the slipway at the tennis court to enjoy the sea breeze, and ………to my horror, more dumping at the shore at the back of the tennis wall😡😡pulled glass bottles, plastic bottles, yogurt cartons, bread wrappers, plastic packaging, cans, even a bed quilt cover and pillow cases?? ALL dumped in a box I would imagine, left to rot on the shore. This shoreline is a bathing area, not to mind the wildlife we have here. Filled two bags after going back down to clean up the mess. AND someone keeps taking the little solar light that is left with the Community Crisis Response Team print out!!!   😡😡😡😡
