Glenville GAA Club News

18 April, 2013

Our Intermediate Footballers continued on the winning road when defeating Grenagh on Tuesday night last. In bitterly cold conditions which has become the norm when playing football games this year Glenville were in trouble early on and coughed up some cheap scores. On the other side we began pretty inept up front and Grenagh dealt fairly comfortably with us. Trailing 0-5 to 0-3 our scores were from Jason Foley Brendan Maloney. A transformed rejuvenated display void of the earlier sloppiness had us in total control in the second and quickly whittled away the two deficit. Shooting on the other hand wasnt up to scratch and we left Grenagh in the game with many scorable chances going astray,until a Noel o Riordan goal finished the game as a contest. Glenville well worth the 1-10 to 0-9 win. Well done all,putting us on top of the league with maximum points after four outings. Glenville were short a number of players for this game and hope that we will come close to championship numbers for our next league game. Championship is on May 4th v Naomh Aban and we play Kinsale and Mallow prior to this.

The news of the untimely passing of Daniel o Riordan was a tremendous shock to everyone in the parish and to the local GAA community. Daniel from his U12 days always gave his lot when he wore the Glenville jersey.He was a clever nimble corner forward who was always good for a score and a great character both on and off the field, played in two minor finals in recent years with Glenville. He always carried a smile on his face and oozed a youthful energy epitomised by a large circle of friends built up over the years and had a great life ahead of him.His sudden passing has left untold sadness all over the parish,his family and beyond.

On behalf of the wider GAA family i would like to extend our deepest condolences to his father Dan, mother Sheila,the wider O Leary and O Riordan families, all of whom had a deep affection and gra for Daniel.
