W/E 2nd August 2020

The Newtowngore U17s Championship :
With injuries and lads away we had to concede our U17s first round away to St Josephs in Carrigallen.
The Smith Monumentals Intermediate Championship:
Carrigallen were the visitors to Annaduff last weekend in our second round of the IFC.
Sean McNabola got the Annaduff scoreboard going with a point free in the fifth min, followed by one from play by Eoin Gill. Sean and Kenny knocked over a point a piece before a super pass from Adam O Hagan and a well taken goal by the boot of Alan Glancy left the score at 1-4 to no score in the first quarter. Carrigallen had a couple of free chances but were unable to convert into scores. In the 19th min a point from play from Kenny followed a point from a free by Alan, Carrigallen looked to be in trouble.
Before the break Carrigallen converted 2 points from frees and one from play. Also Sean McNabola with a point from a free and one from Ray Cox from play left the half time score Annaduff 1-08 to Carrigallen 0-3.
Sean McNabola got the scoreboard going again in the second half with a point inside the 1st min followed with point from a free from Carrigallen, Eoin, Alan and Ray hit over the next three points before Karl Foley made a couple of substitution changes, realistic with 12 min to go the game looked over but in fairness to Carrigallen there lads stuck at it. A blow for them in the 52nd min with a black card for Eoin ward followed by a well taken point from Liam Taylor. Shane Morrison was given a red card followed soon by Liam O Rourke ( Carrigallen) a late point kicked by former County man Gary Reynolds left the full time score: Annaduff 1-13 to Carrigallen 0-08.

Congratulations Colleen:
Congratulations and well done to Colleen Guckian who has used the Cov-19 lockdown to write her first novel. Indeed anyone who has been following Colleens Facebook posts over the last few months will know that her thought process is incredibly creative. The sky didn’t fall introduces us to two young ladies in 1940s Ireland, gently takes us through the next decade of their lives and their journey across the Irish Sea and back. Our heroines deal with the very different cards that faith deals them and in Colleen’s capable hands, the pair grow, live, love and dance and the sky didn’t fall.Written under her maiden name Colleen McCarthy (as a nod to her parents), the sky didn’t fall is available in the Reading Room Bookshop in Carrick-on-Shannon and on Amazon from Friday, July 31.
