  • 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.

  • 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.

  • ACFL Div 2 Res – Naomh Eargnait 3-7 Mac Dáibhéid 1-14

    The senior reserve footballers picked up their second win of the season with a point win away to Naomh Eargnait on Friday evening.

    It was Naomh Eargnaits who enjoyed the better of the first half with the aid of two well executed goals but despite this we were very competitive and kept on their coat tails and with points from Chris Gallagher, Gerard Burns (0-2), Stephen Toner, Conor Ferran and Oscar Deevy we trailled by four at the break 2-4 to 0-6.

    Points on the restart from Anton McLaughlin, Conor Ferran and Gerard Burns reduced the lead to a single point but another Naomh Eargnait goal and a quick point knocked us out of our stride as they increased their lead to five. However, a Jay Maguire goal response renewed our impetus and with ten minutes to go we had drawn level at 3-6 to 1-12 following points from Jay Maguire and Sean O’Neill, with everything to play for. We continued to press forward and a pointed Gerard Burns free put us in front for the first time in the game. Sean O’Neill extended our lead to two, with the final point of the game from Naomh Eargnait leaving us winners by the minimum margin 3-7 to 1-14.

  • ACFL Div 2 – Mac Dáibhéid 0-12 Naomh Séamas 0-8

    The senior footballers put in their best display of the year, accounting for previously unbeaten Naomh Séamas with a controlled and stylish display.

    Things didn’t look too good with Naomh Séamas winning possession from the throw-in, foraging up field and kicking the opening point. They were out of the blocks fast and looked envigored, up for the task and it appeared that it could be a long night for us when they added two further points to take a goal lead after 7 minutes. However, that was to be their final score of the half as we got our match-ups right and started to play calm and controlled football. We were totally dominant, and the Aldergrove men seemed to recoil inside their shell as we kicked 0-7 without reply and it was visibly obvious that we had broken their resolve. On target in the first half were Gerard Slane (0-3), Padraig McParland (0-2), CJ Sullivan and Jay Maguire as we led at the half time whistle 0-7 to 0-3.

    The second half was more of the same and despite Naomh Séamas reducing the deficit at one stage to two, it was one of those nights when you knew we were playing well within ourselves and with points from top scorer Gerard Slane 0-3, Marcas Toner who scored with his first touch after coming on as a sub and CJ Sullivan, we comfortably saw the game out finishing in the top six as the league now splits into 2A and 2B.
