Na Fianna

Sports Clubs
20th May:

Na Fianna Minor Footballers bowed out of the League as their chance of qualifying for the final was ended with defeat to Tullamore in their last group match last Monday week on a scoreline of 3-10 to 1-06. Tullamore hit the ground running as they opened the scoring with the first 2 points inside the first minute followed by 4 more without reply by the 25th minute when they also struck for their first goal when a quick counterattack through the middle before being lobbed from the right corner of the square to the left corner of the net. Na Fianna having being out of luck with a few earlier chances had to wait until the 27th minute to get on the scoreboard when keeper Adam Wallace excellently slotted over a 45. followed immediately by point number 2 before striking for their goal in the 28th minute when Edward Mangan made a great run in from the right wing before rounding the keeper and shooting low into the left corner of the net. This brought Na Fianna right back into it at half time as now only trailed by 4 points 1-06 to 1-02. Unfortunately, this would be as good as it would get for Na Fianna as the first score of the second half was a second goal for Tullamore in the 3rd minute when a high ball in was knocked down off the crossbar but then flicked into the net on the rebound. Thereafter both sides added 4 points apiece as Tullamore sealed it by getting their 3rd goal in the 23rd minute with those Na Fianna scores coming from Colm Nolan, Sean Dunne and Doonacha Cooney. Na Fianna will now turn their attention to the upcoming Championship campaign which begins in July.

A badly depleted Na Fianna U15 Football side saw their winning start to this year’s League campaign come to an end as they proved no match when they came up against Championship favourites Tullamore in Rd 4 last Thursday evening in Geashill as Tullamore turned a half time lead of  1-11 to 0-01 into a winning result of 5-14 to 0-03 with the Na Fianna scores from Rory Kehoe, Liam Jones and Cathal Sheil.

After hitting 7 goals in their opening round win over K/K it was always going to be a tough ask to repeat the feat for Na Fianna U13 Footballers as they faced the other side in green and gold Rhode Og next time out in Rd 3 of the League last Friday evening in Rhode but that is exactly what they did as Na Fianna claimed the win on a scoreline of 7-10 to 5-08. It was Rhode who got off to a lightning start as their first 3 scores inside the opening 10 minutes were all goals with Na Fianna getting off the mark with just 2 points. Na Fianna then added 3 points to Rhode’s 1 before a blistering 6 minute spell from the 20th minute on saw Na Fianna turn the game completely on it’s head as they brilliantly struck for 5 goals without reply scored by Darragh McAndrew (2), Kaiden Monaghan, Fionn McGrath and Cathal Cuskelly with a point also added during this time for good measure. Both sides added a further point apiece before the break so at half time it was Na Fianna in control leading by 5-07 to 3-02. Any hope of a comeback by Rhode were dashed as Na Fianna struck for goal number 6 to go 14 points up with their first attack straight from the second half throw in scored by Kaiden Dunne. While Rhode rallied with the next 4 points in a row this was almost wiped out with Na Fianna dispatching their 7th and final goal in the 10th minute scored by Kaiden Monaghan. Both sides added just 1 further point over the next 15 minutes before the last 5 minutes saw Rhode cut their defecit marginally by scoring 2 consolation goals along with a point as Na Fianna completed their tally with their final 2 points.
NA FIANNA: Harry O’Meara, Conor Dunne, Oisin Dolan, Saean Condron, Rian Duke, Kevin Dunne (0-01), Noah McDonnell, Noah Condron, Ben Wallace (0-01), Kyle Kelly (0-01), Fionn McGrath (1-01), Kaiden Monaghan (2-01), Darragh McAndrew (2-02), Cathal Cuskelly (1-02), Kaiden Dunne (1-01).
SUBS: Eoin McLachlan (for Harry O’Meara), Oisin O’Grady (for Oisin Dolan), David Dunne (for Sean Condron), Mason O’Meara (for Darragh McAndrew), Reece Johnson (for Kaiden Dunne).

Na Fianna U15 Footballers face Birr in Rd 5 of the League next Wednesday evening (29 May) @ 6:30pm in St Brendan’s Park, Birr where a win for Na Fianna in what is their final group match will most likely secure their place in the League Final. All Support would be appreciated.
