  • ACFL Div 2 – Mac Dáibhéid 1-14 Naomh Treasa 0-7

    The senior footballers maintained their unbeaten start to their league campaign with a comprehensive and dominant display against Naomh Treasa at Páirc Mhic Dháibhéid last night.

    We controlled the game from the throw in and played some outstanding, controlled and patient football and gave an exhibition of score taking. By the 15th minute we had opened up a 6 point advantage with scores from Aaron Slane (f), CJ Sullivan 0-2, Jay Maguire, Ceavy Slane and Chris Rafferty. Naomh Treasa could not get any foothold in the game and we continued to push on with an Aaron Slane pointed free and then a somewhat fortuitous goal, also from an Aaron Slane free with the Naomh Treasa defence and goalkeeper misjudging the flight of the ball as it came into the square and it ended up in the back of the net. CJ Sullivan then kicked his 3rd point of the game with Gerard Slane adding a brace of points to give us a commanding lead at the break 1-10 to 0-0.

    Naomh Treasa put up a much better display in the second half but the damage had already been done in the first half. While they kicked 0-7 we added points from Padraig McParland, Aaron Slane (45), Gerard Slane and CJ Sullivan, following a stupendous catch in the middle of the pitch by Anthony Rowntree to run out comfortable winners 1-14 to 0-7.

    Scorers: Aaron Slane 1-3, CJ Sullivan 0-4, Jay Maguire 0-1, Ceavy Slane 0-1, Chris Rafferty 0-1, Gerard Slane 0-3 and Padraig McParland 0-1.

  • ACHL Div 4 – Mac Dáibhéid 2-13 Loch Mór 2-12

    A goal in the dying minutes of this league encounter secured both points for the senior hurlers in their first league outing of 2023.

    Colm McKee opened the scoring with a well taken point but it was Loch Mór who looked more dangerous and they forged into a 0-5 to 0-1 lead after 10 minutes. We hit back with a pointed free from Marcas Toner and a second point from Colm McKee but Loch Mór steadied and fired over a point from long range. We then enjoyed a decent spell in the game and took the lead with scores coming from another pointed free from Marcas Toner, a goal from Chris Cunningham and a nice point from Caoimhin Rainey on the run out on the right side of the pitch. Both teams traded further points (Marcas Toner (f)) before Loch Mór struck their first major of the day and then followed up with a brace of points to leave us trailing at the break 1-6 to 0-9.

    The second half was very scrappy and littered with fouls and both teams used resultant frees as their main source of scoring. Marcas Toner slotted over 2 pointed frees with Loch Mór responding likewise. Loch Mór then extended their advantage to 6 points as they struck their second goal and quickly added another point from a free. Caoimhin Heaney (0-2fs), Deaglan Mooney (0-2fs) and Colm McKee’s third point of the day closed the gap to two points and we pushed hard for the winning goal. We were then awarded a free just out the 20 metre line and Stephen McGivern duly stepped up and blasted the sliotar low to the net to give us the win 2-13 to 2-12.

    It’s onwards and upwards to the next game when we play Anraí Seoighe, next Sunday at Páirc Mhic Dháibhéid at 2pm.

    Scorers: Colm McKee 0-3, Marcas Toner 0-5 (0-4fs), Chris Cunningham 1-0, C Rainey 0-1, Caoimhin Heaney 0-2fs, Deaglan Mooney 0-2fs and Stephen McGivern 1-0

  • ACFL Div 2 Res – Pádraig Sáirseil 0-9 Mac Dáibhéid 0-8

    The senior reserve footballers went down by the minimum margin against Na Sáirseil in a highly entertaining game at the Bear Pit.

    While scores were at a premium, both sides played good attacking football but were guilty of some missed scoring opportunities in front of goal. Na Sáirseil edged the first half but points from from Brady Maguire, Oskar Deevy and Jay Maguire ensured we were still in the game at the break trailing 0-5 to 0-3.

    The second half was something similar with both teams kicking point for point with the Maguire brothers and elder statesman Sean Óg Prenter on target but Na Sáirseil maintained their 2 point advantage. We gave it one final push and levelled with time almost up (Brady Maguire and Sean Óg) and the game looked to be destined for the draw but Na Sáirseil launched one final attack which resulted in a well taken point to earn them the victory 0-9 to 0-8 at the final whistle.

    Scorers: B Maguire 0-3, J Maguire 0-2, S Óg Prenter 0-2, O Deevy 0-1

  • ACFL Div 2 – Pádraig Sáirseil 1-12 Mac Dáibhéid 1-14

    The senior footballers got their 2023 league campaign off to a winning start with a hard fought away win against Pádraig Sáirseil at the Bear Pit.

    The first half was a very tight and cagey affair with both teams trading points early on with our scores coming from Gerard Slane (f) and Padraig McParland following a well worked spell of possession down the right side. A long range point from CJ Sullivan edged us in front but Na Sáirseil then gained the upper hand with a well taken goal and point to put us on the back foot. However, we responded well with points from Chris Rafferty (f) and after a great mark in the middle of the pitch from Ceavy Slane, he fed the pass to Jay Maguire who showed his composure to kick between the sticks to leave a single point between the sides. The remainder of the half continued in the same vain with both teams tagging on points, with our points from Chris Rafferty (f), Gerard Slane (f) and Padraig McParland ensuring we went in level at the break 1-5 to 0-8.

    Gerard Slane opened the scoring in the second half with a pointed free but Na Sáirseil then enjoyed a good spell when they created several goal scoring opportunities including the award of a penalty, but they failed to convert on all accounts. We showed good character to regroup and in a mirror image of the first half picked of points when the chances arose to stay in the game. Points from Gerard Slane 0-2, Chris Rafferty, Aaron Slane 0-2 left us a point in arrears and with time running out we struck the vital goal from top scorer Gerard Slane to claim the victory 1-12 to 1-14.

  • JHC – Group 2 – Naomh Bríd 1-15 Mac Dáibhéid 3-10

    The senior hurlers opened their JHC campaign with a one point away win over Naomh Bríd at Musgrave in their first match of the group stage.

    CJ Sullivan opened the scoring with a well taken point, after good work involving Deaglan Mooney and Anthony Rowntree. Naomh Bríd levelled the game with a point from a free in the 8th minute but we were back in front when goalkeeper Thomas Maguire found Michael Rowntree from the puckout who fed a pinpoint pass to Marcas Toner and he split the posts. Another Marcas point stretched our lead but Naomh Bríd went on a run of scoring to take a 0-6 to 0-4 lead with Don Whelan striking our point from a converted free. We went further behind when Naomh Bríd goalled but we clawed our way back into the game with points from Don Whelan (0-3) and Peter Carleton. However, they stretched on with a brace of points from frees but on the stroke of half time Don Whelan finished to the Naomh Bríd net to leave the sides level at the break 1-8 to 1-8.

    We struck the first point of the second half after 5 minutes with Don Whelan adding to his tally and when Anthony Rowntree struck the Naomh Bríd net it appeared we had broken their resistance but Naomh Bríd hit back, reducing the deficit to the minimum. We responded with a fine individual point from Cormac Maguire and when a Don Whelan shot was saved by the Naomh Bríd keeper, Anthony Rowntree followed up on the rebound to fire the sliotar to the net. Naomh Bríd resistance was still not broken and they plugged away with four points to leave the game final balanced going into the last few minutes. We stood resolute and at the final whistle had picked up the two points on a winning score 1-15 to 3-10.

  • IFC – Group 3 – Mac Dáibhéid 1-13 Ros Earcain 0-10

    The senior footballers opened their IFC group campaign with a six point win over Ros Eracain at Páirc Mhic Dháibhéid.

    We were quick out of the blocks with points from Aaron Slane (45) and a Chris Rafferty free to establish an early advantage. Eoin McNeill pointed for Ros Earcain but Deaglan Mooney responded with a long range point to restore the two point advantage. Ros Earcain were back on level terms when goalkeeper Tiernan Boyle converted a free from 45 yards and Sean Ellis kicked a nice point. Both teams traded points with Aaron Slane and Chris Rafferty on target with the final point of the half coming from an Aaron Slane free to give us a point lead 0-6 to 0-5.

    We extended our lead on the restart with further points from Aaron Slane and Chris Rafferty while Sean Ellis replied with a point for the visitors. Gerard Slane restored our three point advantage with a well taken point. Further points were traded with Anto McGrattan on target following a good spell of possession football. A Ros Earcain point from a free by Ryan Lynch closed the gap to two but again Gerard Slane pointed to restore our goal lead.

    We doubled our lead in the 53rd minute when Padraig McParland was upended in the box and goalkeeper Aaron Slane dispatched the resultant penalty to the net. The teams again traded points with Anto McGrattan and Padraig McParland on target to leave us winners 1-13 to 0-10.

    Next up is an away trip to Con Magees on 27 August with a 6pm throw-in.

  • ACFL Div 2 – Mac Dáibhéid 3-10 Ard Eoin 0-11

    Following on from their win over Glenravel 2-6 to 0-11 the senior footballers were looking to finish their league campaign with a home win over Ard Eoin.

    We got off to the prefect start with CJ Sullivan finishing to the back of the Ard Eoin net after a good run from Niall McParland. Ard Eoin responded with two points but an Aaron Slane pointed free, a CJ Sullivan point following a good passage of play and a point from Niall McParland put us in control. We dominated from here on adding 1-3 with the points coming from Ryan Park, CJ Sullivan and Aaron Slane with the goal from Anthony Rowntree while restricting Ard Eoin to 0-3 – half time score 2-6 to 0-5.

    Ard Eoin scored the opening point of the second half but a Ryan Park goal and points from Chris Rafferty (f) and Aaron Slane more or less finished the game as a contest. We added further points from Aaron Slane and CJ Sullivan to win 3-10 to 0-11, finishing third in the league.
