Under 16/14 football
11 June 2016

The Frank O'Neill Memorial tournament final took place last Saturday and was was won by Dylan Gallagher's team who defeated Michael McKenna's side in a hard fought game which saw some excellent passages of football from both teams. JC Mc Garrigle, Pauric Keenaghan, and Nathan Owens-Kelly all had excellent games for the winning team. Captain of the team Dylan Gallagher played a captain's role and deservely got man of the match. The sides were evenly matched in the first quarter being level on a number of occasions, but Dylan's team upped the pace and scored a couple of goals before half-time. McKenna hit back after the break and Dylan Gallagher and Senan Rooney traded goals as did Pauric Keenaghan and Michael McKenna. Whatever chance McKenna had was put to bed when Dylan Gallagher hit two goals and a few points. Michael McKenna did get a goal back, but a couple of excellent points from the left boot of Jack McSherry put the game beyond reach and Dylan Gallagher lifted the Frank O'Neill cup. Thanks to Referee David Hoey who did an excellent job and also thanks to David O'Donnell of Kernan's Spar for the crisps and drinks after the game.
