Down GAA Annual U12 Croke Park Activity Day
The Annual U12 Croke Park Activity Day took place in Croke Park on Sunday 12th October 2014. Down GAA were scheduled to be on the pitch in Croke Park from 9.30am to 11am so it was an early start for all involved. St Bronagh’s selected two players, Rory O’Hare and Claire Doyle to attend and on the day they were given the opportunity to partake in small sided games of both Gaelic Football and Hurling on the pitch. The players were then taken on a tour of the famous Croke Park Stadium.
WHAT A DAY IN CROKE PARK!
What a day for Down and St Bronagh’s Rostrevor in Croke Park on Sunday. Thirty nine ladies footballers from the U12, U14 and U16 squads together with their Mentors set off for Croke Park at 8.30am on Sunday morning to cheer on the Down Senior Ladies against Fermanagh in the LGFA Intermediate Final. A great day was had by all, helped in no small measure by Down Ladies success on the field.
To add to the excitement, twelve girls from the U14 Squad took part in the action on the pitch at half time in the Senior Ladies match between Dublin and Cork to act as Officials for the Half Time Exhibition Games.
Phil Curran R.I.P
It was with great sadness St Bronagh's GAC learned of the death of club stalwart Phil Curran. Phil passed away after a short illness and our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. He was a great servant to the club and wider GAA circle, as well as the local community. Indeed he was still attending committee meetings and actively involved in the club right up until his passing. He will be sadly missed by all. R.I.P
All Ireland Champions
Congratulations to Katie Farrell, Clara Mulvenna and Emma McPolin who were part of the Down Ladies squad who defeated Fermanagh in Croke Park on Sunday to become All Ireland Intermediate Champions 2014.
Rostrevor U21s 2014
With the Down U21 Championship scheduled to get underway on 12th October, Rostrevor have appointed their management team for the campaign. Best wishes to Jarlath Farrell, Shaun Parr, Brian Cole and Aidan Murray who will take charge of our U21s this year. More details about groups etc for the competition will be released by the County Board soon.
U21 Training continues on Friday 3rd October @ 7.00pm in Pettit Park. All available players to be present - 2014 Minors up to and including players who turned 21 after 1st January 2014.
St Bronagh’s GAC have been informed of the resignation of Senior Team Manager Gerard Colgan. The club would like to place on record their thanks and appreciation for the time, effort and commitment he has shown to the club over the past four years. Gerard has steered the team through a difficult transition period during his time as manager and we thank him for giving many young players the experience of playing at Senior level - something the club can build upon for the future. The club would also like to thank his management team of Martin Sherry, Martin McAleenan and Tom Mullholland who have also stepped down.
Reds Do The Double!
It turned out to be a super weekend for the super reds as the Seconds lifted the Premier Reserve Championship Trophy on Friday night after a tight battle with Mayobridge - match report here. On Saturday afternoon the U14s overcame the much fancied Atticall to win their Championship.
PRFC Champions 2014
U14SD CHAMPIONS 2014
On Saturday 13th September minor and U16 goalkeepers Aidan Magee and Ryan O'Gorman attended a planned goalkeeping clinic in Castlewellan for U15-U17 goalkeepers.
The 1 day clinic worked through a number of key facets that make a modern GAA goalkeeper, including kick outs, shot stopping, footwork, communication, positional awareness and agility. It was taken by County Minor Goalkeeping coach Peter Travers. Both Aidan and Ryan enjoyed the 2 hour session and hopefully they will be attending more of these sessions in the future.
SCÓR NA NÓG 2014/2015
