Cork 3-22 Connemara Gaels 5-8 (AET) The Gaels seemed to have the game in the bag, but Cork pulled off a second half comeback to force extra time.  The rebels then had more in reserve for the additional 20 minutes and in the end came out comfortable victors.  Cathail Arnold was the center of all things good for the Corkmen, and when the Down man had the ball in his hands it was almost always

Sunday August 13 Shannon Blues v Galway 1:45 First up are Galway and the Shannon Blues.  Galway find themselves one game away from repeating last year’s final appearance.  The westerners field a balanced side and play a fluid style, moving the ball well when in possession.  There are plenty of finishers in the forward line.  Home based stalwart Kevin Cummins can be relied on to come up

Connemara Gaels 1-14 Aidan McAnespies 2-13 AET The Gaels and McAnespies served up a tremendous game that was full of incident and excitement.  It could have gone either way as early in the second period of extra time the teams were still tied.  With victory in their grasp at the end of normal time, McAnespies saw a three point injury time lead slip away and the Gaels force extra time.  In the

The Connemara Gaels and St. Christopher’s served up the first of three Men’s Senior Football games in Canton on Sunday. Although the Christopher’s were unable to qualify for the quarterfinals regardless of the result of this last league game, they showed much of the form that had them within margins of several big wins over the summer.

Connemara Gaels 1-10 Galway 2-15 Galway burnished their championship credentials with an impressive win over the Connemara Gaels in the battle of the west.  It was neck and neck until the final quarter when Galway pulled away with some well taken scores and a Brian Reape goal that put the matter to bed.  Galway moved the ball well when they needed to – a hallmark of their game, while the

Shannon Blues 1-11 Connemara Gaels 1-10 The last game of the day proved to be the most exciting with the Shannon Blues pulling though with a point in injury time against 12-man Connemara Gaels.  The Gaels will feel hard done by, having come away from the game with nothing despite their valiant second half efforts, however, there were plenty of chances there for them to get a result.  For

Connemara Gaels 1-16 Wolfe Tones 5-15 The final score belies what was a very entertaining junior championship matchup.  It was close until the final 10 minutes when the Tones banged in 2 goals and secured the points.  The Gaels will rue how easily the Tones got in for the goals, however, the corner forward pairing for the Tones of Conor Marsden and Pauric Fogerty proved to be a match

Connemara Gaels 0-17 Aidan McAnespies 1-12 It was edge of the seat stuff between the Connemara Gaels and Aidan McAnespies.  There was nothing between the teams throughout the second half, and for the Gaels the introduction of fresh legs from the line provided them with the edge.  With both sides tiring, the fresh legs gave the Gaels the lift for the final minutes.

Cork 3-15 Connemara Gaels 4-7 There was a minute's silence before the game in honor of Pat McCarthy who had recently passed away.  Pat was a member of the Cork GFC and a player from 1960 to 1972, and managed the club to a NACB senior football championship in 1986.  Pat was a regular attendee at the games in Canton. On a hot humid day Cork and Gaels played a very entertaining opening junior
