Purcell Cup Round One: DIT open Purcell campaign with win over MU



Purcell Cup Round One: DIT 3-11 MU 2-11

12716119_10153591025966492_7256260986225473930_oThese two have produced some fantastic games over the last few years and last night was to prove no different. This was a hugely physical encounter with score taking of the highest order.  DIT were quickly out of the blocks and had two fantastic points on the board. Maynooth slowly got into the game with Melissa Lyons directing operations from centre forward. DIT captain Aoife Minogue pounced for two green flags with some excellent team play from Ellen McGovern & Sarah Nagle, both also tagging on fine points.

In between this Lyons again was punishing any indiscretions from the home team and they were also rewarded for their pressure when they scrambled the ball over the line. Kate Nolan was asserting in midfield and In the dying minutes of the half a long ball in ended up in the DIT net. HT and Maynooth led 2-8 2-6. Such was the intensity and physicality of the game three players were substituted in the first half.

Maynooth started the second half in a whirlwind and had two points on the board to increase their lead to 4. Fia O Brien and Dervla Byrne  were starting to really break open the DIT defence.  That proved to be Maynooth last point from play and the home team started to slowly turn the screw, mounting attack after attack, Orla Beagan and Nagle again added points but they had to work hard for every opportunity due to the tenacious tackling and work of the opposition defence. The game changing moment happened with 8 minutes to play, some excellent passing ended up with DIT midfielder and player of the match Ellen McGovern at an acute angle but buried the ball to net.

Orla Beagan tagged on another after great play from Megan Thynne. Lyons responded with a free for Maynooth but the home defence held firm for the last few minutes to thwart any attacks. If this is the bench mark of Purcell Cup we are sure to have some more fantastic games in this competition.

Fr.Meachair Championship takes off this week



The Fr.Meachair Cup kicks off this week with two rounds being played across the competition.  Group two will play their round one while Group one will play their round two to suit their group.

Round one: Group 2: LIT v ITT (GMIT bye) Thurs 21/01/2016 3pm LIT GAA pitch

Newly promoted side LIT will take on Munster neighbours IT Tralee in LIT later this week. The O’ Mhaolagain Cup champions are new to the Fr.Meachair Championship but have adapted very well in their step up during the Division two league campaign. Durining this league LIT managed one win over Trinity and a single point loss to AIT showing their potential among strong Fr.Meachair teams. IT Tralee collected a single point during their league campaign against WIT2 but also suffered a single point defeat to UCC. Both sides will be hoping that the new format will benefit their fight to reach the CCAO weekend away and with every game a must win game the Fr.Meachair Championship will be the most competitive it’s every been.


Round two: Group 1: St.Mary’s v AIT (TCD bye) Tues 26/1/2016, The Dub QUB, 2.30 Referee: Brendan Toland

Following their 2015 loss at the hands of IT Carlow, St.Mary’s will fancy their chances to return to the Fr.Meachair final and maybe even go that one step further with the new format. The northern college had a very impressive league campaign only losing out to their Purcell neighbours Queen’s University. After their first loss against IT Carlow in the Division two league, a reformed AIT came back to win their following game against LIT by a point. After a long break from their league campaign’s both sides will be rearing to go come 2:30 on Tuesday afternoon.
