We mention Noel Rosney at the end of the notes each week for writing them up and he does great work informing everyone what is going on in the club. We also wouldn't have them online and in the 4 papers in Offaly each week unless Jackie Coughlan typed them up and emailed them to everyone. Thanks to Noel and Jackie for all their good work each week.

St Rynaghs U16B footballers played Ballinamere Durrow at Cloghan GAA grounds on Monday evening of last week in a downpour.  It was not an evening for fancy football and the saints started off the better team with three unanswered points.  Full forward Michael Dolan, left half forward Eoin Flynn one each and right half forward Dean Flynn one from a 30m free out of the hand.  It was not until the 15th minute Ballinamere Durrow raised their first white flag of the game a point from play.  Saints right corner forward Andy Wynne quickly replied with a great point from play.  Straight from the Ballinamere Durrow kickout they had the ball over the saints crossbar.  On the 20th minute Dean Flynn who’s speed and fine ball control was causing problems problem’s for the Ballinamere Durrow defence scored a great point from play.  On the 25th minute Ballinamere Durrow  raised another white flag from play and 3 minutes before half time Dean Flynn scored his 2nd point from play to leave the half time score St Rynaghs 0-6 Ballinamere Durrow 0-3.  It was anyone’s game in the 2nd half as the rain came bucketing down.  With the game only on 3 minutes St Rynaghs were awarded a penalty and saints right corner forward Andy Wynne’s shot was well saved by the Ballinamere Durrow goalie but Andy was onto the rebound in a flash to crash the ball into the net.  Two minutes after Ballinamere Durrow, after a brilliant 4 man movement had the ball in the saints net, they were not going down without a fight.  In the 9th minute Andy Wynne gained possession on the right wing and his looping shot went over the Ballinamere Durrow goalies head, hit the post just below the crossbar and rolled into the net for a bizarre goal you wont see the like in this years championship.  In the 10th minute Dean Flynn scored his 3rd point from play.  Ballinamere Durrow  replied with 3 points one from play in between two 30 metre frees and five minutes from full time Dean Flynn scored a magnificent 30m free off the ground straight over the crossbar to leave the final score St Rynaghs 2-8 Ballinamere Durrow 1-6.  The game was a lot closer than the five point win suggests.  It was the two second half goals between the 3rd and 10th minute which had a huge bearing on the result.  It was a fine sporting game of football played in atrocious weather conditions.  Well done to Ballinamere Durrow  for making a great game of it on the evening.  Best for St Rynaghs:  Evan Conroy had a fine game in goal.  Eoin Gannon played well at full back.  In a great half back line of  captain Colm Daly, Alan  Moylan on his left hand and the speedy Ronan Hughes on his right had fine games.  James Daly and Kieran Fogarty worked tirelessly in midfield and in the forwards Dean Flynn at right half forward, Andy Wynne at right full and the live wire Michael James at left full forward all played well on the evening.  St Rynaghs U16 Team:  Evan Conroy, Tomas Leonard, Eoin Gannon, Martin Daly, Alan Moylan, Colm Daly (Capt), Ronan Hughes, James Daly, Kieran Fogarty, Dean Flynn 0-5, Evan Keane, Eoin Flynn 0-1, Andy Wynne 2-1, Michael Dolan 0-1, Michael James.  Sub: Ronan Butler for Tomas Leonard.  Referee: Declan Ward, Crinkle.

A few weeks ago the man behind the wire pointed out the slipshod way games are being presented in Offaly.  This certainly was not the case in Cloghan GAA grounds on Friday of last week for the intermediate championship football game between Birr and Shannonbridge.  The field was perfectly marked out.  The four umpires properly attired.  The field was in immaculate condition, with plenty of stewards available to assist in the parking of cars.  Well done to all concerned for their magnificent effort.
