  • ACHL Div 4 – Mac Dáibhéid 3-19 Naomh Gall 0-15

    The senior hurlers opened their 2024 league campaign with a good win at home to Naomh Gall at Páirc Mhic Dháibhéid.

    A strong breeze set the game up for the proverbial game of two halves, with Naomh Gall having the advantage in the opening half.  However we minimised the Naomh Gall advantage with some nice hurling and excellent score taking. Scores from Deaglan Mooney 0-2, Donn Whelan 0-1, Cormac Maguire 1-0, Stephen McGivern 1-1, Michael Rowntree 0-1 and Chris Gallagher 0-1 ensured that we were well in touch going into the second half only a point in arrears, 2-5 to 0-11.

    The second half was a different story as we used the sliotar to great advantage, constantly putting Naomh Gall under pressure. A series of scores from Donn Whelan  (0-11) from frees, 65s and play, aided with scores from Chris Galllagher 0-1, Deaglan Mooney 0-1, Stephen McGivern 0-1 and the goal of the game from Stephen Thompson who soloed past three men before finishing to the back of the net laid the bases for the win. A good defensive display also ensured that Naomh Gall had no way back into the game and we ran out deserved victors 3-19 to 0-15.

    Scorers: D Mooney 0-2, D Whelan 0-12, C Maguire 1-0, S McGivern 1-2, M Rowntree 0-1, C Gallagher 0-2, S Thompson 1-0

  • ACFL Div 2 – Dun Lathí 2-12 Mac Dáibhéid 0-6

    The senior footballers opened their 2024 campaign with an under par performance away to Dun Lathí on Saturday evening. Weather conditions were not conducive to free flowing football with both teams struggling in the opening half to gain any momentum. Scores from open play were at a premium and both teams relied on points from frees and 45s. Although we had the assistance of the wind it was Dunloy who retained possession and used the ball much the better and at half time we trailed 0-5 to 0-3 with our scores from A Slane (0-2fs) and CJ Sullivan.

    It was Dun Lathí who were quickest out of the blocks in the second half, enjoying a good opening fifteen minutes as they kicked 2-4 without reply to open up a twelve point advantage. The remainder of the half saw both teams add three further points each with Caoimhin Slane, James Lindsay and Aaron Slane on target and at the final whistle Dun Lathí were deserved winners on a score of 2-12 to 0-6.

    Scorers: A Slane 0-3, CJ Sullivan 0-1, C Slane 0-1, J Lindsay 0-1

  • ACFL Div 2 – Mac Dáibhéid 3-11 Naomh Seosamh 1-8

    The senior footballers got back to winning ways with a convincing home performance against Naomh Seosamh and deservedly took the spoils.

    The opening 15 minutes was cat and mouse as both teams tested each other out but courtesy of points from CJ Sullivan and Gerard Slane and then three fisted points from Padraig McParland (0-2) and Jack Scally we held a goal advantage. We extended our advantage with a Gerard Slane pointed free and another point from Padraig McParland but a pointed Naomh Seosamh free was quickly followed by the first goal of the day to reduce our lead to the minimum. However, we were quick to respond and a CJ Sullivan goal restored our four point advantage giving us a half time lead 1-7 to 1-3.

    A goal from Anthony Rowntree three minutes into the second half more or less settled the game as a contest. We controlled the game and Naomh Seosamh struggled to make any impact on the game. Another Gerard Slane point from a free, CJ Sullivan’s second goal and points from Jay Maguire (0-2) and Padraig McParland secured an emphatic and deserved nine point win 3-11 to 1-8.

  • ACFL Div 2 Res – Mac Dáibhéid 5-13 Carraigin 0-8

    The senior reserve footballers recorded another good win in this late evening throw-in running up a good tally of scores.

    We got off to a good start with Caolan Park kicking the opening point and we pushed on from there with points from Sean O’Neill, Conor Ferran, Caolan Park, Jay Maguire (1-2), Stephen Toner (1-2), Oscar Deevy and Brady Maguire 1-1 held a commanding advantage at the break 3-10 to 0-5.

    Carraigin kicked a brace of points on the restart but we reasserted and with Oscar Deevy (1-1), Anton McLaughlin (1-0), Stephen Toner (0-1) and Ciaran Harkin (0-1) all on target we ran out winners 5-13 to 0-8.

    On the evening we had nine different scorers: Caolan Park 0-2, Sean O’Neill 0-1, Conor Ferran 0-1, Jay Maguire 1-2, Stephen Toner 1-3, Oscar Deevy 1-2, Brady Maguire 1-1, Anton McLaughlin 1-0 and Ciaran Harkin 0-1

  • ACFL Div 2 – Mac Dáibhéid 1-6 Gortnamóna 0-12

    Gortnamóna completed the double over the senior footballers with a goal win at Páirc Mhic Dháibhéid on Wednesday evening.

    Gortnamóna raced into a three point lead early on with a long range effort the pick of the scores which split the posts. However, we responded well to level with three points from the consistent Gerard Slane, all frees. Unfortunately these were to be our only scores of the half as Gortnamóna built up a half time lead 0-3 to 0-7.

    We faired slightly better in the second half with points from Danny Wallace, Gerard Slane (0-2) and when CJ Sullivan goaled we were only a point in arrears, 1-6 to 0-10. However, it was Gortnamóna who would finish the game the stronger and with the addition of two points ran out winners 1-6 to 0-12.

    Scorers: Gerard Slane (0-5 (4fs)), CJ Sullivan 1-0 and Danny Wallace 0-1

  • ACHL Div 4 – Mac Dáibhéid 0-14 Ard Eoin 1-13

    This was a game that the senior hurlers had to win to keep themselves in contention for league honours but over the course of the game Ard Eoin did just enough to edge to a two point victory, putting them in pole position to claim the league title.

    Ard Eoin opened with two points from frees but we responded with three points in a row from Marcas Toner (2fs) to take the lead. Both teams contrived to strike point for point with never more than a difference of two between the side and with points from Stephen McGivern (0-2) and Marcas Toner we held a slender one point lead at the half time whistle.

    The second half followed the same pattern with Ard Eoin withstanding a few early goal attempts but neither side was able to dominate proceedings for any length of time and at the 35th minutes were level with Marcas Toner adding two points to his tally. Ard Eoin then struck the only major of the game to put them in prime position but back we came with points from Chris Gallagher, Deaglan Mooney and Marcas Toner to level again with five minutes left on the clock. However, Ard Eoin then tagged on a brace of points and despite our best endeavour we couldn’t break down their defence to get the goal we badly needed and they held on for a two point win 0-14 to 1-13.
