Congratulations and well donen to all the players and mentors.

A Good Weekend

Minor League Final
The final last Wednesday evening turned out to be one of the best games of the year so far. The large crowd of supporters from Kinlough were disappointed with the result but very proud of the performance that these young players produced. This was a game that the Gaels could and probably should have won, having led by seven points with about ten minutes of normal time to go. The confusion and delay concerning the score at the end of normal time did not help either team going into extra time. It’s hard to understand why the scoreboard was not in use for this final.
Nevertheless, well done to Liam, Fergal and all the young lads. No doubt these lads will compete in many more finals in the years ahead

Playing with the wind in the first half, the Gaels failed to capitalize on the chances created and went in leading by two points, which was never enough.

The Seniors had a good win over Drumreilly in Melvin Park on Saturday evening.
The game was played in ideal conditions and there was some good football played by both teams.
The first half was very even with Drumreilly going two points ahead before the Gaels got going with a point from Fabian Mc Morrow. Pat Gallagher added another point to draw level and Joe Tiffoney scored a very good point but had to go off injured soon after. Good to see Joe back again. Drumreilly came back with two mare scores , the Gaels went two points ahead at the break with two frees from David Mc Sharry and a great point from Sub, Jonathon Connolly.
The Gaels played the better football in the second half and good scores from BB Brennan, Jonathon Connolly and David Mc Sharry put the Gaels in control and when young Declan Roper scored a very good goal there was no doubt about the result.
Drumreilly had a couple of goal chances near the end but the Gaels finished strongly.
Final score was Melvin Gaels 1-13 Drumreilly 0-6.

Melvin Gaels Golden Jubilee Celebrations
On Sunday August 2nd, the community of Kinlough stepped back in time with the Melvin Gaels Golden Jubilee celebrations. The evening began with Fr. Keogan arriving on pony and trap to celebrate Mass, with members of the honoured 1959 team participating in the readings and offertory gifts. After Mass, a large crowd gathered round to hear a fitting speech by Mr. Pauric White at the unveiling of the plaque dedicated to Gerald Gilmartin, honouring his donation for the training field. This was followed by an entertaining re-enactment of the 1959 county final by a first class Kinlough side who thankfully won out again against Ballinamore! Following the game, the hungry players and spectators were greeted in the community centre by the smell of homemade bread and scones which was served to all with a welcome cup of tea while Seamus Sweeney, Eileen Kane & Lydia Warnock entertained with some excellent traditional music.
Thanks to Noel McGowan, Spar, Kinlough, the 1959 County Finalists and committee were treated to a sit down meal where many a story was recounted! The highlight of the evening was a comical sketch of the Club’s first meeting in 1954, adapted by Patsy McGovern. Well done to the actors and actress who gave a very fine performance to a packed hall. The evening ended with excellent traditional music from Seamus McGowan and members of local Ceoltas group and dancers from the Emerald Revellers.
Thanks to all who embraced the spirit of the occasion and dressed as in the 50’s and congratulations to Nora McGloin, who won best dressed lady sponsored by the newly opened Arroo Hair Group, Kinlough and Colin Regan, who was chosen as the best dressed gentleman, sponsored by F&F Construction, judge on the day was Clem Prendergast.
