G.A.A CLUB NOTES 15th July 2024

Na Fianna Minor Footballers got their 2024 Championship campaign off to a winning start as they withstood a second half recovery by Clara in their Rd 1 encounter last Monday week in Clara with Na Fianna coming out on top on a scoreline of 3-12 to 3-08. Na Fianna hit the ground running right from the off opening the scoring with the first 3 points inside the first minute from Cormac O’Grady and Sean Dunne (2) and this was followed in the 7th minute the first goal of the game for Na Fianna when a 1-2 between Cian Multaney-Kelly and Sean Dunne out around the 45 before Cian ran through the middle and blasted his shot to the net. Na Fianna then added 2 points before Clara were temporarily reduced to 14 as their corner back picked up a black card. Na Fianna responded with a further point before Clara got on the scoreboard for the first time in the 19th minute with a goal when a garryowen shot bounced in the square before being punched to the net. Na Fianna responded immediately with their second goal when a run in from the left wing by Colm Nolan to Cormac O’Grady who flicked it to Edward Mangan who rounded the keeper and planted the ball into the empty net. Clara then added 3 points to Na Fianna’s 1 before Na Fianna struck for their 3rd goal in the 29th minute when Colm Nolan lobbed the keeper from beyond the 20m line with his shot dipping into the top left corner of the net. Adam Comerford completed Na Fianna’s first half tally with their final point of the half in stoppage time so at the break Na Fianna held a commanding lead of 3-08 to 1-03. Both sides were unable to add to their tally for the first 10 minutes of the second half but then over the next 5 minutes Clara doubled their score adding 1-03 to Na Fianna’s 1 point. Clara then struck for their 3rd goal in the 20th minute followed by a pointed free in the 24th minute to cut their deficit to just 2 points. Na Fianna steadied the ship with a pointed free from Dooncha Cooney in the 26th minute. The sides then added 1 more point apiece which would prove to be Clara’s final score before Na Fianna sealed it with their final point from David Berry in the 3rd minute of injury time.

Na Fianna U15 Football Second Team got the 2024 Championship campaign underway for their age group with a good win against St Manchans Gaels last Tuesday week in Tubber on a scoreline of 4-07 to 1-02. Torrential rain from start to finish made the playing conditions extremely challenging. Na Fianna got the scoring underway with the first 2 points inside the opening 6 minutes from Sean Dempsey & Rory Kehoe. Na Fianna raised their first green flag in the 12th minute when Sean Dempsey’s shot from outside the 20m line just dipped into the top right corner of the net. St Manchans got themselves off the mark with their first 2 points within 2 minutes just after the mid-point of the half. Na Fianna responded with another 3 points before the break so at half time Na Fianna were in control leading by 1-05 to 0-02. Rory Kehoe got the second half scoring underway with a pointed free in the 5th minute for Na Fianna and this was followed by 2 more Na Fianna goals in the 11th and 15th minutes scored by Ciaran Hannigan and Aaron Meacle along with a point from Adam Kehoe to put the seal on the result. St Manchans did get a consolation goal with just over 5 minutes remaining their only score of the second half but this was wiped out in the final minute as Fionn McGrath struck for Na Fianna’s 4th goal and the final score of the game.
