Our fundraising committee launched its Greyhound night in Kilcohan Park on Saturday July 14th at our club grounds on Thursday evening.
Speaking on behalf of the committee chairman Paddy Fitzgerald welcomed everyone to the launch and thanked Karl Pallas from Kilcohan Greyhound Park for attending.
He also thanked club members Jonathan Regan, Justin Houlihan, Jamie and Pa Hallahan for their help in organising the race night and for bringing their greyhounds along.
Paddy said that even though this was our first venture into this type of fundraiser the response to it has already been tremendous and he looked forward to everyone working together over the next six weeks to make this a very successful fundraising venture.
He thanked his fellow committee members for all of the work they had done to date and for attending the launch.
The club will be running a bus on the night to Kilcohan and tickets are now on sale and further developments will be announced as they occur.
Saturday July 14th should be a great night out for the club at Kilcohan where the dining and refreshment facilities are second to none.

KILROSSANTY 3-10 DUNGARVAN 1-15
Kenny Moore 0-9(6f).
There were two main reasons why we didn’t get something out of this senior football league game which was played in our own club grounds on Wednesday May 30th.
Chasing down the ball from left to right, Kenny Moore, Seamus Hannon, John Curran and Darren Duggan.
Firstly we conceded three goals inside the first five minutes when we were slow out of the starting blocks and after a remarkable comeback and the scoreboard reading 3-10 to 1-14, Kilrossanty goalie Paul Whyte made a superb save from Kenny Moore at the expense of a ’45’ with the game in time added on.
County players supporting the team from left to right are Joe Allen, Michael Kiely, Patrick Curran, Darragh Lyons and Gavin Crotty.
Despite our early concession of major scores the sides were level at 3-2 to 1-8 just before half time with Fionn Hallahan scoring our goal, the outstanding Moore 0-6(1f) and Seamus Hannon and Darren Duggan 0-1 each.
Peter Queally on left and Jack Lacey.
Early second half scores by Moore and Hannon again helped us to level a second time at 3-5 to 1-11 with ten minutes played. However Kilrossanty enjoyed most of the second half possession and they built up a lead of 3-10 to 1-13 with five minutes remaining.

Eventually we got our hands on the ball and Jack Lacey and Fionn Hallahan(f) kicked points either side of Paul Whyte’s save on Kenny Moore’s goal attempt.
Centre Back Conor Sheridan
We deserved something out of this game but our slow start to it came back to haunt us in the final analysis.
Picking up tips from the seniors are juniors left to right Sean Crotty, Conor Duggan, Aidan Connolly,Glen Power, Sean Hyslop, Lee Hyslop and Eric Duggan.
Scorers : Kenny Moore 0-9(3f), Fionn Hallahan 1-2(2f), Seamus Hannon 0-2, Darren Duggan Jack Lacey 0-1 each.

Best wishes to Patrick Curran and Darragh Lyons as the Munster senior hurling championship commences for Waterford in Ennis on Sunday in their first round game against Clare.
In the minor game club player Tristan Loftus is named on the panel of 24 and hopefully he will see some action on the day.

DUNGARVAN 3-6 ST. OLIVERS 2-2.
Well done to our under 14 footballers who won the western title in the Fraher F ield on Saturday morning with a deserving 0-7 win over a gallant St. Olivers outfit.
Mark Loftus on left an Fionn Nagle
Olivers got a great start to the game when Shane O Donnell scored an early goal and our luck didn’t seem to be in when a penalty kick by Mark Loftus came back off the crossbar.
Eoin O Callaghan
However this well trained team made light of this setback and Mark Loftus returned to score 1-1 to give us the lead. Aidan Mansfield levelled the game before Kyle Healy set up Fionn Nagle for a great goal and the lead at half time by 2-1 to 1-1.
Goalie Darragh Healy.
The deadly accurate Mark Loftus pointed his second free on the restart but when Harry O Donovan set up Ben Buckley for Olivers second goal, the game was back in the melting pot.
The next score was always going to be vital and Kyle Healy showed great leadership to kick two fine points from play to put us 2-4 to 2-1 in front with ten minutes to play.
Club Stalwarts from left to right, Eamonn Morrissey, Buddy Power and Wacky Ferncombe take a break from work to view the final.
Daniel Buckley replied for St. Olivers with their final score but the remainder of the game belonged to the young blues with Kyle Healy scoring a peach of a goal followed by white flags by Mark Loftus and Fionn Nagle to run out worthy winners against good opposition.
Team captain Gavin Christopher received the championship shield from Bord Na n-Og Chairman Tom Cronin amid great excitement by this latest crop of club juveniles.
Each and every one of the players played their hearts out on a team that you could see were very well trained by team manager Chris McGovern and his selectors Trevor Galvin, Dermot O Callaghan, David Burke and Pat Curran.

BALLINAMEELA 4-6 DUNGARVAN 1-9
Both teams scored ten times in this junior football championship game in Ballinameela last Friday evening but it was the home side’s ability to raise green flags that carried the day for them. We trailed by 2-1 to 1-3 at half time and despite trying to the very end we lost the second half by 2-5 o 0-6.
Features of the game from our point of view were two great saves by Craig Beary in goal, while Tadhg McCombe’s penalty effort went just centimetres over the bar.
Our final group game is this Friday June 1st v Kilrossanty in Leamybrien at 8pm.
Team : Craig Barry; Brendan Cullinane, Gavin Power, Jamie Cullinane; Aidan Kirwan, John Havens, Sean Hyslop; Jamie Hallahan, Ian Sheehan; Liam Sheehan, Tadhg McCombe, Joe Duggan; Sean Ryan, Glen Power, Stephen Donovan.
Scorers : Glen Power 1-2(1’45’), Sean Ryan 0-3, Ian Sheehan 0-1f, Tadhg McCombe 0-1f, Liam Sheehan and Gavin Power 0-1 each.
