Drom/Broadford – St Senans Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 10:00

Youre always disappointed when you draw but ultimately we didnt play well enough to win that game I thought we were absolutely atrocious. A minute later James Kelly picked up a second yellow card for a needless foul and before he had even left the field Drom took a quick free, ball ended in the hands of the deadly Michel Reidy game-tying point from distance. And what of Quilligans assessment of his sides performance? We played for about 20 minutes, for 40 minutes we were atrocious and theres no point trying to hide that.

Although they couldnt make it out of a similar group last time out, they will be confident of reaching the knockout stages in 2018. Blend a mix of lovely footballers with a tough, hard-hitting men ready for battle. Johnny McCarthys retirement from Intercounty duties may be a blessing for the men from the west as they look to add to their collection of three county titles.


There was also a mini-fracas involving several players after referee Richard Moloney blew for half-time and there were unsavoury scenes at the end, too, when a spectator is alleged to have run onto the field to remonstrate with Newcastle Wests James Kelly who had been sent off for a second yellow card just before full-time. An investigation is likely to be held into an incident at the finish of a rip-roaring final at the Gaelic Grounds after Michael Reidy, with a point in stoppage-time, earned a draw for Drom-Broadford.

At least seven players were involved in the build-up. It took 12 minutes before Garrett Noonan got Drom-Broadfords first point of the second half, by which stage Mike Quilligan had three points for Newcastle West. Drom-Broadford had a brace from Derry McCarthy to edge a point in front until Kelly had his second goal five minutes from the end. There was never much between the sides and they were level three times in the first half, at the end of which favourites Drom-Broadford led by a point, 0-8 to 1-4. Kellys goal came after 16 minutes to put his side 1-4 to 0-4 in front.

Full-forward James Kelly had the Drom-Broadford rearguard in complete disarray, notched 1-2, and Kelly was ably abetted by young Michael Quilligan, while the third inside forward, Thomas Quilligan, roamed the plains to excellent effect. Wing-forward and Shannon rugby player Stephen Kelly was also causing Drom-Broadford major problems with his pace and intelligent distribution. And then, for no apparent reason, Newcastlewest seemed to sit back. Newcastle West came into this game as underdogs against their neighbours from Dromcollogher-Broadford, the powerhouse club of Limerick senior football since the turn of this century. Playing with power, pace and no little precision, however, the underdogs were a goal ahead after 16 minutes, and full value for that lead. Four consecutive points Newcastle West conceded before the break (Michel Reidy with three, two of those from soft frees) and they trailed at the break 0-8 to 1-4.

Kieran's GAA club we would like to congratulate all those who made the night such a success, the level of community spirit exhibited on both nights was truly a sight to behold. There was an array of talent on show and it was very evident that each of the participants went to great lengths in their preparation to ensure that both nights were a success and the crowd went home happy. Ardagh District Recreational & Sporting company held their Lip Sync battle fundraiser in aid of the new Astroturf facility on Friday and Saturday evening last in the Devon Inn Hotel, Templeglantine and it goes without saying that two excellent nights of entertainment were had. The new Astroturf facility will hopefully be a huge asset to the community with all sporting organisations benefiting from it in the not so distant future and we would encourage you all to continue your support for the project. Huge credit must go not only to the organising committee for putting together such an outstanding event but equally to all those who participated in the event. From all within St. Onwards and upwards into the future. Were it not for the level of hard work and dedication from both the organising committee and the willing participants both nights could not have been as successful, furthermore the level of support from those in attendance was extremely encouraging. Both nights were extremely well supported not only from those within the parish, but it was also great to see so many people from places further afield in attendance on both evenings.

They have over the last few years being going along nicely and this could be the year that they make the big breakthrough. This will be a tough test for the champions who for the last 2 seasons have not started well. I fancy Ballylanders to cause a first round shock. First up for Monaleen is a game against Ballylanders. A similar start will make it very tough for them to get out of the group this year as there are quality sides in Group 1. The Champions are in group 1 along with Ballylanders, St Senan's, Ballysteen, Drom Broadford and Newcastle West.
