We Did It !
There were great scenes of delight at the final whistle on Sunday evening in Pairc Sean when the Senior team beat neighbours and ‘Four in a Row’ winners Glencar/Manorhamilton in the Senior County Final. There was a great crowd at the Community Centre and all along the way from Glenade to Tullaghan. The celebrations no doubt will continue for some time. In the game itself the Gaels held the upper hand from start to finish and never allowed the reigning champions to get in front. The final score was Melvin Gaels 2-7, Glencar/Manorhamilton 0-7. The margin could have been much greater if the Gaels had taken all the chances they had, particularly in the first half. There were fine displays from many Gaels players on the day and there were a few contenders for ‘Man of the Match’. Congratulations to Paul Brennan who was the winner. Well done to all the players who have done the Club so proud over the whole year and also to Billy, Liam and Aiden who have worked so hard. They got their deserved reward on Sunday. A word of thanks to all who helped to make Sunday such a memorable day in Pairc Sean and in the homecoming celebrations. It was a proud day for the Club and all associated with it, all over the world. Hopefully this will be repeated on a few more occasions by these great players.

In the Final!
On Saturday evening there were jubilant scenes in Pairc Sean when the Senior team comfortably defeated a young Aughawillan team to reach the Senior Final against near neighbours Glencar/Manorhamilton on Sunday September 7th. This is a fantastic achievement when you consider that this Melvin Gaels team took part in, and won, the Intermediate Championship in 2011.
All the panel of players and the mentors, Billy, Liam and Aiden are to be congratulated.
Hopefully this will be a great sporting occasion between the two North Leitrim teams – a very successful Glencar/Manor team, going for five in a row, and an upcoming Melvin Gaels team. We all look forward to the last Sunday in September!

Juniors Through to Final
The Juniors defeated Annaduff on Saturday evening in Drumshanbo to reach the Junior A Championship Final.
This was a hard fought entertaining game played in difficult conditions. The Gaels got off to a slow start but got their act together thanks to some great place kicking from young Peter McGowan who was one of the star players on the day and a Fergal Gallagher goal. Annaduff staged a great comeback when playing with the wind behind them in the second half. A great goal from Declan Roper and a last minute penalty from Peter McGowan secured a deserved five point victory for the Gaels.
This was again a great team performance from the Gaels and they now join the first team in making a county final this season.
Well done to Peter, Dessie, John and all the lads.
Senior League Game v Carrigallen
The first team had a comfortable league win over Carrigallen in a game which was played in Bundoran on Sunday because Melvin Park was not playable.
The storm force winds and driving rain made playing good football difficult but both sides produced decent patches of football. The Gaels seemed to cope better playing against the wind and finished with another good win.
Well done to all.

The seniors got a draw against Allen Gaels on Saturday evening in Pairc Sean in the first of their games in the 2009 Championship.
Melvin Gaels played a first half in this game that they will want to forget quickly.
The team looked nervous and Allen Gaels took full advantage and went into the break leading by seven points. 2-3 to 0-2. The Gaels scored another ‘point’ which was first given and then taken away. This looked a good score to many.
In the second half Melvin Gaels looked much better and got an early goal from Gareth Phelan and the game then became much more of a contest.
Going into the last few minutes Allen Gaels were leading by four points and looked odds on to win. The Melvin Gaels got a point to leave only a goal in it with many north Leitrim supporters heading for the gate . Then Paul Og Ferguson scored a goal, after a fantastic piece of play, that will be remembered for a long time and left the Melvin Gaels supporters heading home happy, with a draw that appeared very unlikely at half time.
It was a great team performance in the second half, well done to all.
The final score was Melvin Gaels 2-7 Allen Gaels 2-7.
The seniors have no game this weekend, but the Juniors start their campaign next Monday at 2pm in Leitrim Village when they take on Bornacoola.
