Congratulations to Melvin Gaels U14′s who defeated Carigallen in a play-off for a place in the final on Monday 27th August in Leitrim Village. The final score was Melvin Gaels 4 15 Carigallen 2 3. The 13-a-side final against Allen Gaels takes place next Monday 3rd September in Pairc Sean, Carrick on Shannon at 7pm. All support would be greatly appreciated.
On Saturday evening the senior team took on Bornacoola in the Championship Quarter Final and came away with a win by the narrowest of margins.
As far as the Gaels team and supporters are concerned the first twenty eight minutes of this game are best forgotten. In the first few minutes Bornacoola scored 1-2 and looked totally in control. The Gaels got the next two scores in the dying minutes of the half and went in at the break three points down. The Gaels were better in the second half and they needed to be. They had a spell where they played some great football and scored six unanswered points. In the end they finished a point ahead. They are now in the Semi-Final and this is a great achievement, but there is a lot of room for improvement on this display.
Well done to all.
The Club would like to congratulate Donegal on the great victory over Cork in the All Ireland semi-final.

A Good Weekend
The Senior team had a great win over a good Mohill team in Ballinamore on Saturday evening last. They got off to a good start but Mohill came back and levelled. A Gaels penalty ensured they lead by a goal at the break, 1-08 to 0-08.
They controlled the second half and were worthy winners on a scoreline of 2-12 to 1-11.
On Sunday the second team took on Aughnasheelin in the Intermediate Championship and secured a good win on a scoreline of 3-6 to 0-11.
It was also good to see Colin Regan back playing Championship football after his serious injury. He made a very good contribution in the win over Aughnasheelin in Drumkeerin.
Well done to all concerned.
