The Ladies team are scheduled to play Glencar/Manor at home on Sunday next. The team have been training hard over the past few weeks and a number of old faces have returned to the fold.
There is training for all U-14’s tonight (Tuesday). All panel members intending to play in Féile should be in attendance for team photos.
Our Tráth na gCeist team of Aiden Dockery, Liam Rabbitte and Feargal Mc Gill head to Killarney on Saturday next for the All Ireland finals of Scór Sinsear. This is the third time that Bornacoola have qualified for the All Ireland final in Question Time at Senior level and the hope is that it will be third time lucky. Best wishes to our fellow Leitrim participants Dromahaire (instrumental music), Glencar/Manor (Figure Dancing), Sinead Egan (Aughnasheelin – Solo Singing) and the Fenagh Novelty Act.
Our sympathy is extended to all who mourn Fr Kevin Sullivan, PP Eanach Dubh who passed away last week. Fr Kevin was a great GAA man and liked nothing better than to pass an hour or two talking football. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a Anam Dhílis.
The Dublin Senior football Championship is underway and our own David O’Connor starred at midfield for holders UCD on Wednesday night last as they defeated Garda in the first round. A couple of years ago, another current Bornacoola player – Philip Howard – also played in the Dublin Senior Championship with Erin’s Hope (the St Patrick’s College GAA club). Indeed over the years many Bornacoola players have played in Dublin – Michael Farrell (Postal Gaels) and Ciaran Fallon (Civil Service) are two of a recent vintage that spring to mind.
The Ladies U-14 team were involved in a great game against Fenagh last week. In a game that was close throughout, Bornacoola emerged as three point winners on a 2-10 to 2-7 scoreline. This is the first time that we’ve had an U-14 team since 2004, so it was terrific to get the year underway with a victory. The team on duty was Zoe Cosgrove, Sheena Mc Cauley, Sharon Mc Gowan, Tara Hackett, Nadine Hackett, Ciara Hackett, Lisa Geelan and Nicola Rogers
