“Our hearts so stout have brought us fame
for soon 'tis known from whence we came
where e'er we go they dread the name
of Garryowen in glory”

Results Roundup

Monday, October 9th, 2017

On Friday evening our 3rds got their Gleeson League campaign off to a winning start with a comfortable 29-0 win over Newport.  Tries by Mike McElligot, Dave Leonard and a brace from Declan Early.  Kevin McEvoy added 3 conversions and a penalty.  Next week will be a sterner test when they meet Shannon in Coonagh.

The 1sts travelled to Dublin to meet UBL pace setters Terenure at their Lakelands home.  A tough uncompromising game unfortunately saw us come off second best.  However the score line of 27-20 ensured that we picked an important losing bonus point.  Scorers were Hugh O’Brien-Cunningham and JP Phelan with a try each and Bill Johnston added 2 conversions and 2 penalties.  The league now enters a two week break before we resume at home on Saturday October 28 against UCD.

Saturday also saw our U20 side in action as they began their defence of the Donal Walsh Trophy away to Bruff.   Leading 26-3 at half time they ended with a good 34-17 win.  Try scores were Anson Thai x 2, Diarmuid Barron, Brian Fitzgerald, Shane Mullins & Harry Byrne added points from the boot.

A weekend like the ubiquitous curates egg.

Well done to all involved, the good ship GFC continues on course. GiG
