Congratulations to Eamonn  Kirwan and our U14 boys who beat Dreadnots in the U14 Division 3 final this morning in Darver. After topping their group yesterday the boys took on a Naomh Fionbarra\Lanneire combination and beat them comprehensively in their Semi final this morning . This brought them together with Dreadnots for the final which was a thriller that our lads eventually came out on top in after extra time for a deserved win. Well done to all concerned.

A quite week on the playing front with our Minor footballers the only team playing , In a thriller in Mell on Saturday afternoon a point from Dean Reilly in injury time sealed a deservered 1 point win over the O/Connells/Stabbannon/ Lanneire selection in the Division 1 shield semi-final . The lads now advance to play Sean O'Mahoney's in the final. Saturday also saw the  last week of Juvenille football training for the year. However there's lots for the boys and girls to do as our first Hurling training session for 7 &8 year olds starts on Sat 2nd November from 11 to 12 a.m.

Things are quieting down on the field at this time of year, despite this we had to split our resources last Saturday as our U16s record a 12 point victory over Dundalk Gaels in the Division 1 league semi final which threw in at 4.30p.m. in Mell. A strong second half performance saw our lads pull away in the last 20 minutes to set up a meeting with either Newtown Blues or St Marys Ardee in the final on Friday 25th October 2013 in Darver..  As the lads left the field text messages were flying to see how our Junior 2 team were doing in the championship final against Hunterstown in Philipstown a game where throw in was 5p.m. . Early reports were good with our lads holding a big lead at half time however Hunterstown fought back and aided by some bad wides on our behalf levelled the game with a couple of minutes to go. The replay is fixed for next Thurday nite in Darver and a big support would be a tremendous boost to the lads. Finally a depleted and deflated senior team took the field for our last league game v Dreadnots on Sunday in a game that only meant something to the visitors the scoreline reflected this.

This week was one to forget for the club with 4 teams our U14 Boys and Girls teams, Minors and Adult team all exiting the championship. Our U14s could not overcome the absence of 2 key players as they were beaten by a strong St Fechins team , while our girls but in a valiant effort away to St Pats , The minors again missing key players were outlplayed by a very strong St Marys team. On Sunday our adult team bowed out of the Championship with a heartbreaking 1 point defeat to Naomh Fionbarra. The Lads put up a great effort and played with real pride in the jersey and had managed to turn a 6 point 1/2 time deficit into a 4 point lead with 10 mins to go . However 2 points and a heartbreaking goal got finbarrs over the line. While days like this are really hard, time is a great healer and I'm sure these brave men will come back next year a better team for the experience. Best of Luck to Finbarrs and in particular Martin Crosby a former stallwart of Plunketts and now managing the men from Togher. Finally its an ill wind that brings no good and a mention to our U13 footballers who had struggled early in the season but put in a superb performance to beat Cooley 7-8 to 0-2 in the Shield final, Well done lads!!

A really good week for the club on the pitch started with our Under 16s beating St Fechins 3-15 to 1-8 in the first round of the A Championship they face local rivals Newtown Blues in the 1/4 finals in 2 weeks time. Without doubt the performance of the week came from our U14 boys who beat hot favourites St Marys 3-5 to 1-9 in the A Championships. Our lads turned around a heavy defeat in the league semi-final a week earlier by the same opponents in what was truly a victory for determination and no little skill. They now progress to the 1/4 finals were they will play St Fechins. The week ended with a really good performance from our senior team who travelled to Lordship on Sunday were they put in a really determined performance against the county champions and were disappointed to come away with a draw.
