Shamrock Gaels GAA Club notes
The Gaels advanced to the Connacht Intermediate Championship semi-final with a narrow win over Fenagh St Caillins (Leitrim) last weekend. This proved to be a difficult challenge for the Gaels having just played the County final replay last Sunday, however despite tiring legs the Gaels clawed back a second half deficit to win by one. Playing against a strong breeze in the first half the Gaels were well on top for most of the half, however a late penalty and a strong finish from Fenagh saw the Gaels behind by two at half time. In the second half Fenagh consolidated their lead and were six points up mid-way through the half but the never say die attitude of the Gaels, which has been evident on many occasions this year ensured that the Gaels dug deep and clawed the deficit back to two points as the game entered injury time. It was again substitute Dylan Willis, the hero of the county final who stepped up and showing remarkable skill scored a goal to put the Gaels one up with three minutes remaining and despite heavy legs the Gaels held on to record our first win in Connacht. Next up is Roscommon champions Fuerty in the Connacht semi-final next weekend. The team was: Donal Tuohy, Declan Willis, Paul Higgins, Keith McMorrow, Ciaran O'Connor, Karl McKenna, Evan Lyons, Joe Henry, Dillon McDermott, James Carroll, Frank Quinn, Brian Boyd, David Quinn (0-7), Shane Deignan (1-2), Darragh Hailstones (0-1). Subs: Seamus Hailstones for C O'Connor (inj), Dylan Willis (1-1) for B Boyd, Joe Quinn for D Hailstones. 

There was no winner of the lotto draw last weekend. The numbers drawn were 1, 5, 9, 30. There was one match 3 winner, Mary Quinn while Eamon McMunn won the house draw. The next draw is on Saturday 17th in Des McDonaghs with the jackpot at €5,000.

There will be a club Mass in memory of deceased members on Saturday 17th November at 8PM in the Church of the Sacred Heart, Riverstown.

The club wish to express sympathy with Leona Conlon on the death recently of her father Mel Devlin, Longford.
