Glenville GAA Club News

Championship time coming up again as Glenville Premier Intermediates take
on Macroom in Ballincollig next Saturday evening. Glenville after being
eight points up midway through the second half in the opening round against
Naomh Aban lost all shape and discipline ending up with 13 players and more
importantly on the wrong side on the scoreboard in the end. In the meantime
we have suffered two losses in the league both away against Adrigole and
more recently against Glanworth where the team gave a very poor performance
loosing out 1-7 to 1-6 which dissapointingly sees our chances of promotion
evapourate after a great start to the league.Glenville will be minus a
number of players from the Naomh Aban game so the task will be very
difficult indeed but last year we defeated the same opposition at the same
stage so there is no reason to suggest that the same cant be repeated again
Glenville will be minus John Halbert Paudie Cahill and Anthony Cronin from
that game while Macroom can call on the County in form Fintin Goold his
brother David and fellow Cork panalists Eoin o Mahony and Sean Kiely.All
our focus now will be in Macroom and hoping to get the season up and
running again. A win here will see us in round 4 where a loss will see see
us having to play a round 3 game which nobody will relish at this stage.
Best of luck to team and management on Saturday night. Throw in is 8pm in

Ger Cahill pointing. Mossie Barry making his first start in over a year did
very well knocking over 4 great points over the hour. The other ginger pele
in the forward line Seanie Peters was sharp inside picking up some good
ball. By half time after a good start we trailed 1-10 to 0-4. Glenville
were a transformed side in the second half and ran at
