Glenville GAA News

Glenville had their second game in the current County U16 football league campaign on Wednesday night in a cold and windy Brian Dillons. Dara o Callaghan was our scorer in chief on the night and his darting runs had the Dillons defence in all sorts of trouble.

PJ Dennehy was also very conspicuous in attack running at the defence at every opportunity. Slow to settle Dilons aided by the breeze looked to have the better of things early on but a solid defensive unit kept them at bay.

The decisive score came just on half time when Dara weaved his way through the Dillons defence and shot a great goal. Glenville held a 1-5 to 0-4 lead at half time.

Dillons made a fight of it in the second half and brought the score down to a point but a few late scores sealed a good win for the team. Good defensive play from Denis o Farrell, Niall Griffin and Shane o Riordan kept them at bay.

Final score Glenville 1-11 Brian Dillons 1-5.

Action now comes to a close for this team with Junior Cert occupying the minds and we wish everyone doing exams the very best.

Glenville Team. Josh Cooke, Aaron Ricken, Colm Fenton, Robert Kelleher, Shane o Riordan, Denis o Farrell, Kyle Cronin, Kevin o Neill (0-1), Niall Griffin (0-1), PJ Dennehy(0-2), Dara o Callaghan (1-6), Gavin o Donovan, Daniel Fitzgerald(0-1), Ger Carmody, Ronan o Keeffe.

The Minor team had their last run out too before the exams when they played Mitchelstown in Glenville on Monday. Mitchelstown were that little bit stronger on the day and won out 2-14 to 1-11.

U13 Footballers clear first hurdle

A great result for the U13 footballers who travelled to Killeagh to play the home side in the first round of this county U13 championship. A place never easy to get a result from Glenville displayed great finesse and craft to carve out a win.

Thomas Dinan had a great game at centre back and as did the whole defence as a unit after a slow start in which the Killeagh St Itas combination looked very strong and forceful.

Cathal Maloney kicked a few good scores in the second half when the game was in the melting pot. Greg had a great game in the wing and his early goal proved to be the most important score as it turned out. Glenville held out in the end for a one point win 1-10 to 3-3. Next round is against Passage on Monday night . Well done to all .
