Glenville GAA Club Notes
Premier IFC
On Saturday evening last Glenville travelled to Pairc Ui Rinn to take on Carrigaline in the first round of the Premier Intermediate Football Championship. The game started brightly with both teams attacking the goal from the outset. Glenville opened the scoring with a well – taken Paudie Cahill free. Glenville appeared to dominate the first half with well worked passages of play. Three futher Paudie Cahill frees and a fine point from Noel O Riordan from a great distance out placed Glenville in a strong position. However, concentration slipped and Carrigaline took advantage of this by scoring a goal on the brink of half – time to make it Glenville 0-05  Carrigaline 1-02.
Both Glenville and Carrigaline battled hard throughout the second half but it was  Carrigaline that pulled away scoring 2-06 to Glenville’s 0-03 in the second half. Glenville displayed a good team performance and taking on such opposition like Carrigaline can only benefit them going into Round 2. Final Score: Glenville 0-08 Carrigaline 3-08. Scorers: P Cahill 0-04, N O’ Riordan 0-01, W Connolly 0-01, J Foley 0-01, K O Neill 0-01.

Junior 3 League
On Friday night last, Glenville and Lisgoold competed in a highly entertaining game in Lisgoold. Glenville took control of this game from the outset and led on a score - line of 2-06 to 0-01 at half – time. It was a great team effort and despite being reduced to 13 players, Glenville continued to dominate every position on the field. Final Score: Glenville 2-12 Lisgoold 1-05. Scorers: J Cooke 1-03, C Fenton 1-00, J Cullotty 0-03, J Dorgan 0-02, N Griffin 0-02, G Carmody 0-01, JJ Kearney 0-01.
