U-16 Football Championship Round 1 Match Report

Our U-16 footballers made the trip down to Rochfortbridge to take on the local side in the 1st round of the Championship this evening where conditions were perfect for fast flowing & open football. In the league encounter between these two teams a few weeks back St. Ernans came away with the points after a 2 point win in Clonmellon but Championship and league are two different beasts and our lads new they would face a sterner test this evening.

GAA Club Notes 22/08/16

Like our previous 2 championship matches it was a case of what if we performed in both halves. On a dreary evening in Cusack Park we failed to put up any opposition to Raharney in the first half of this Senior championship encounter. Down by 1-2 to 0-0 after 5 minutes and despite some valiant effort we trailed at half time on a scoreline of 1-11 to 0-2. Read More...

Can anyone help?

"I'll be in Delvin on Monday, September 5. My great great grandparents, Garrett and Mary Fagan Kiernan were married there on Oct 31, 1844, most likely in St Patrick's Hall. They emigrated to the US in 1849. Does anyone know of local cemeteries where I might find some of the Kiernan and/or Fagan family? I know there are a couple in the cemetery by Delvin Castle, but I'd like to find more. Would any Keirnan or Fagan cousins be interested in meeting? My son and I should be in Delvin about 11 am. Thanks, Mary Frances Eve"
