Championship Quarter Final v St. Marys
The seniors finished their involvement in the Senior Championship on Saturday evening when they were defeated by St. Marys in the quarter final replay.
This was a game that the Gaels could have won on their first half performance, but luck was not on their side. A goal line clearance and a post prevented the Gaels from getting the vital goal that possibly would have got them through.
In the second half they did not perform as well and did not create enough chances. St. Marys finished stronger and are now in the semi- final.
The club would like to thank the mentors, players and everyone who put in such a great effort in the championship this year. The experience will help the younger players and no doubt the Gaels will be strong again next year.

Next draw in Gilbrides, Rossinver on Sunday September 9th, Jackpot €1350.
Championship Quarter Final v St Marys
Anyone lucky enough to be in Drumshanbo last Saturday evening to see Melvin Gaels take on St Marys in the senior championship witnessed a great game of football. It was a close game which went down to the wire. Both teams will claim they should have won, but they will have to meet again next Saturday evening in Drumshanbo at 5pm. There were some great scores, missed chances, disputed scores and periods of great football and very few bad tackles. As good a game as is likely to be seen this year and it was played in difficult conditions.
Good luck to Gerry, Seamie and all the lads on Saturday
