Senior Championship Fixture
Our senior team makes the eagerly awaited journey to Cusack Park on Saturday evening next for their first outing in this year’s Senior Championship. The opposition will be provided by The Downs. Both sides met earlier in the year as part of the Division 2 ACFL which saw our lads edge out the visitors on a scoreline of 0-13 to 2-4. However, with both sides back to full strength, this game promises to be an exciting affair and our lads will be hoping to get off to a winning start in this year’s championship. Kick-off is at 7pm. All our supporters are encouraged to get behind our lads!

Feis Cup Semi-Final
Caulry 1-2
Rosemount 0-14
Our senior lads were knocked out of this year’s Feis Cup in the semi-final stages when they suffered a defeat to a strong Rosemount side on Tuesday evening last.
Caulry raced out of the tracks with a pointed-free from Conor McCormack. Rosemount drew level on the 2nd minute with a fine point from play. A converted-free for the opposition put their noses in front. This lead was short lived after some superb play from Kevin Maguire which enabled him to rattle the back of the Rosemount net on the 6th minute. However, our lads failed to push on as Rosemount kicked two points to draw level on the 19th minute. Maguire and Eoin Fox defended well. However, our lads struggled up front and were guilty of some wides. The opposition worked hard, kicking 0-3 in quick succession to take the lead. A missed goal opportunity for our lads meant Caulry trailed 1-1 to 0-7 at the halftime whistle.
The second half followed in the same vein with Caulry struggling to find their feet. Rosemount pointed to stretch their lead. Sean Clinton defended well, denying the opposition a goal on the 40th minute. However, Rosemount rallied on with four more points. McCormack kicked Caulry’s only score of the half on the 52nd minute. However, two late points for the opposition ensured they ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 0-14 to 1-2.

U12 League
Our U12 boys suffered a strong defeat to a good Lilliput Gaels side in the local park on Wednesday evening last.
The opposition hit the ground running with a well-taken goal inside the opening 60 seconds. Despite some good defending from Cian Lawless and Cormac Murphy, the Lilliput Gaels boys began to push on with an unanswered 1-2. James O’Brien and Sean Donnelly worked well up front as a point from Oisin Shortall narrowed the margins between the sides. Aaron Hanevy and David Gaynor worked hard in defence. However, the opposition proved too strong for our boys as they added points to stretch their lead. Tiarnan O’Donovan and Brendan Kelly McCormack attacked well. However, our boys struggled to find their feet and kicked a couple of wides. Max O’Sullivan brought off a good save in goals as Darragh Shortall defended well. The Millmore Gaels’ goalie then brought off a great save to deny Caulry a goal on the 19th minute as the opposition tapped over some fine scores to build up a commanding lead before the interval.
After the break, Andrew Stuart Trainor defended well. However, despite some good efforts from our boys, the Millmore Gaels’ lads pushed on adding five more points. Conor Hynes and Conor Devaney worked hard as a point from Stuart Trainor reduced the deficit. Our lads began to work well as a team with O’Donovan adding another fine score. The Caulry lads played patches of nice combined teamwork which resulted in Oisin Shortall getting his second score of the game. However, the Millmore Gaels boys never gave up, tapping over some fine scores securing a comfortable victory on the evening.

U14 Championship
Caulry 4-4
Coralstown/Kinnegad 7-12
Our U14 boys suffered a strong defeat in their opening game of this year’s championship when they played host to Coralstown/Kinnegad on Sunday morning last.
The opposition started well with three quick points inside the opening five minutes. A well-taken point from Alan Malynn got our lads off the mark on the 7th minute. James Buckley then pointed to reduce the deficit. However, Coralstown/Kinnegad responded well with 1-1 in quick succession. The opposition worked hard and stretched their lead to nine points with another unanswered 1-1 by the quarter hour mark. The Caulry boys tried hard against the strong opposition with Malynn converting a penalty to narrow the margins between the sides. However, the Coralstown/Kinnegad boys went on a quick scoring blitz which yielded an impressive 3-5 before the halftime break. A late pointed-free from Malynn saw Caulry trail 5-10 to 1-3 at the break.
The opposition raced out of the tracks again in the second half with a fine point from play. However, the Caulry lads began to work well as a team as a superb pass from Buckley found Adam Dunning who rattled the back of the opposition’s net on the 37th minute. The teams traded scores with Shane Lawless on target for Caulry. Despite some good play from Senan Baker and Sean Murphy, Coralstown/Kinnegad hit the Caulry on the 44th minute. The Coralstown/Kinnegad goalie then brought off a great save as his team raced down the field to register their seventh goal of the game. However, our boys must be praised for their never-say-die attitude as they worked tirelessly throughout. Late goals from Tom Cloonan and Murphy meant Coralstown/Kinnegad ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 7-12 to 4-4.
