Our third outing in the senior championship started brightly in the sunshine in Ballinamore on Saturday but ended in a loss to Drumreilly.

Alan Glancy gave Annaduff the lead on the quarter of an hour mark and this was followed by two more Drumreilly points. On the 16 minute a fine Annaduff move involving Eoin, Alan and Gavin finished with the ball in the back of the net and Sean Mc on an streacher. The half finished with two Drumreilly goals, one walked into the net and one from the penalty spot. In to the closing ten minutes, Drumreilly led by seven points and Annaduff helped by a penalty coversion from Alan narrowed the difernce to a goal but time ran out before the gap could be bridged.

W/E 6th August 2017

We opened our senior championship with a comprehensive win over the neighbors in Cloone on Saturday. Frank McNabola opened the scoring for Annaduff in the initial minute with a fine point, Bornacoola registered their first point on the fifth minute which was followed by three unanswered quality Annaduff scores from Frank, Eoin and Gavin. The second quarter was probably Borancoola’s best period, outscoring Annaduff by 4 points to 3 during this time but they were still unable to take the lead, an achievement that eluded the Bors over the entire 60 minutes. Annaduff finished the half strongly with points from Gavin, Alan and Dillon, the margin at half time, two. Bornacoola opened the scoring in the second half coming within a point of Annaduff but that would be as close as they would get and the Bornacoola opener was quickly followed by a goal and a point from Alan, the goal coming from the penalty spot. Bornacoola scored the next two to come within a goal of Annaduff with 15 minutes left on the clock but then came a cracking minute from the McNabola brothers, Sean pointing and Frank hitting the back of the net to leave the margin 7 points. Gavin, Sean Mc, Dillon and Ray completed the Annaduff scorecard.

 

Annaduff: Jim McCormack, Garry Bohan, Dean Gill, Dermot Reynolds  (Capt), Dillon Keane (0:2), David Duignan, Mattie Cox, Keith Duignan, Kenny Cox, Gavin O Brien (0:3), Eoin Gill (0:1), Conor Reynolds, Sean McNabola (0:3), Frank McNabola (1:2), Alan Glancy (1:2).

W/E 14th May 2017

Thursday last, was the day of Joanna’s funeral.  So hard to comprehend.   Early morning brought bright sunshine, which seemed appropriate.  For Joanna always radiated warmth, brightness and giving, to all of us who were lucky enough to have known her.  Her gentle touch, generosity, and selflessness, made her truly unique. She had achieved so much during her short life.  We were immensely proud of her, as a team-mate and a friend.  At the Church in Annaduff, young and old from far and near, gathered to bid her a last farewell.   A cold easterly breeze blew as the Guards of Honour assembled. Their sense of loss, their confusion, their love, was palpable. In the Church, Fr. Wall spoke eloquently of the importance of finding Peace.  The music softened our pain. Ciara spoke movingly, and so bravely, about her cousin and friend.  Her message is so important.  Daniel broke our hearts when he read out Joannas treasured poem.  Joanna  was laid to rest, beside the National School playground, where she spent her formative years.  On Thursday night, the sun set, as it always does. The moon appeared, and was soon joined by a single bright star.  Then, thousands of stars emerged. Joannes star will always shine brightly, amongst us.  We will never forget her.

May her gentle soul rest in peace.

Our heartfelt and deepest sympathies are extended to the Phillip, Teresa, Aaron, Daniel, Keith and the extended Duignan Family, and to the O Rourke Family in Fenagh.
As a mark of respect, Pairc Ui Choilig was closed for the past week.

Division 2

Annaduff 2:14 Aughavas 2:6

Another win for Derek Cox’s men on Saturday after an extremely competitive game of football. Both teams goaled in the opening two minutes giving an indication of the attacking football which was to follow. Annaduff had built up a three point lead by the twenty minute mark when Shane Cox’s net was breached for the second time to bring the sides level at 1:5 to 2:2. Aughavas then took the lead before points from Sean Duignan and Hugh Moylan gave the home side a two point lead at the interval. Aughavas had the better of the opening six minutes of the second half, scoring two points without reply and taking a one point lead, the visitors would score only one more point over the next 25 minutes as the Annaduff defence shut up shop for most of the second half. As the match entered the final ten minutes and the scores even, Annaduff scored three points without reply from Sean Duignan and Adam O Hagan. With five minutes remaining Kenny Cox went on an unstoppable solo run, passed to Alan Glancy who hit the onion bag for the second time in the game. Another point for Adam and a long range effort from Birthday boy and Captain Eoin Gill completed the scoring. Next up Ballinamore.
