On last Saturday Sept 24th St Rynaghs U10 footballers travelled to Cavan top play in the U10 nine-a-side blitz "Loughgowna Tournament".  23 players along with team mentors Martin Houlihan, Gary Daly, Patrick Regan and Brian Hogan left the GAA grounds Cloghan at the early time of 7.45am as they had to be in Cavan at 10am to register their names for the competition.  In the first game V the Downs of Westmeath we lost by 1-1 to 1-7.  In the second game we had a great win V local team Butlers-bridge winning by 4-4 to 1-4.  In the third game another great win against Cavan team Mullahoran 3-2 to 0-3 and again against a Cavan team in the quarter final v Ballyhause we lost by double scores 2-6 to 1-3.  It was a great performance by the young lads to reach the quarter final and they did their parents, club and parish proud.  The following players travelled to Cavan:  Carl Coughlan, Gearoid Daly, Brian Rigney, David Rigney, Kealin Rigney, Hugh Hogan, Jack Regan, Louis Regan, Oran Foy, James Delaney, Sean Finneran, Evan Houlihan, Adam Houlihan, Joe Brody, Thomas Daly, Shane Higgins, Sean Kennedy, Greg Healy, Adam Meleady and Alan Corcoran.
Although this was the Loughgowna Tournament nine-a-side blitz.  The team mentors gave all the all the young lads that that did not play in this tournament a game in the semi final of the Shield Tournament against Roscommon side St Brigid's which they lost by 1-4 to 0-3.  No doubt the young lads enjoyed the day and it was a great experience for them.  Sincere thanks to Claire Corcoran for looking after team statistics on the day and our very generous sponsors Adrian Clancy, Mick McDonnell, Corrigans Corner House, Houghs Pub, Eugene Flynn, Simons Bar, The Railway Bar, Billy Keane and Michael Finnegan.  Your generosity is very much appreciated by St Rynaghs Football Club.
The panel of U10 players each received a new tracksuit, socks and togs and on the journey home from Cavan stopped in Athlone for a meal.  Just a few more people to thank, to the bus driver Eddie Higgins and Michael Boylan Travel and a sincere thanks to the team mentors for looking after the young lads, they are the heart and soul of our club.

Our club house should be completed by next spring.  Extensive work has been carried out in the last two weeks on the meeting room kitchen area with a state of the art kitchen unit fitted and the wooden floor completed.  It looks fabulous and St Rynaghs Football Club will have facilities on par with any club in the county.  Many thanks to John Daly for laying the wooden floor and our chairman Ray Bell for the magnificent painting job he did in the kitchen meeting room area.
