Inch National School – Sciath na Scol Winners!
Inch NS 5-7, Ballintotas NS 2-5
Those who were lucky enough to get to Mayfield GAA Grounds on Armistice Day for the Sciath na Scol Football Final between Inch NS and Ballintotas NS were treated to a thrilling game of football which Inch deservedly won, but only after a great tussle with their opponents who battled from first to last whistle. That first whistle was blown at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, a fact which should make the remembering of the day a little easier in years to come. This was a brilliant team performance from Inch who have been expertly trained by the dedicated double act of príomhoide Maurice O’Mahony and múinteoir John Irwin. Ben Budds was very safe in goals and cleared his lines very well, while Jamie Fogarty and George Walsh were almost impassable at the back. Cormac Fitzpatrick and Rory Motherway tackled and ran and cleared all day long, with their excellent distribution helping to set up attacks time after time. Ethan O’Driscoll defended very well on the right wing and his second-half replacement Diarmuid Buckley did equally well. At midfield Aaron Fitzgibbon and Evan Daly covered acres of ground, while our forwards were in scintillating form, as can be seen from the impressive score of 5-7 in a 40-minute game. The young Walsh cousins Barry and Ben showed skill, speed and strength, while Evan Lane directed matters expertly from centre-forward. The effective building from defence enabled Darragh O’Leary and Colm Leahy to cause wreck nearer the Ballintotas goal when the final ball was delivered, and even though the game was finely balanced right to the end, there is no doubt that Inch deserved their victory. Well done also to a gallant Ballintotas team who played the game in a very sporting manner, with a special mention for young Darragh O’Brien, one of our Killeagh Under 10 stars, who was on this occasion playing against many of his team-mates, even managing to score Ballintotas’ second goal at the start of the second half. Sciath na Scol medals are not easily won, so be proud of your achievements boys, and may you all remember this day with fondness for the rest of your life!
Team: Ben Budds, Cormac Fitzpatrick, Jamie Fogarty, Rory Motherway, George Walsh, Ethan O’Driscoll, Evan Daly, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Barry Walsh, Evan Lane, Ben Walsh, Colm Leahy, Darragh O’Leary, Diarmuid Buckley, Jack Griffin, Daniel Griffin, Danny Fitzgerald, Eric Millerick, Ciaran Brennan, Jack O’Connor, Liam Considine, Fionn Murphy, Jack Flanagan.
One of our under 16 players Barry Motherway would like to say thank you to everyone who came to the Fundraising Table Quiz held in Long’s Bar, Mount Uniacke in aid of the HOPE Foundation on Friday last. A great night was had by all present, with a total of €980 raised for HOPE on the night. Go raibh mile maith agaibh go léir.
