Annaghdown – Naomh Anna Match Prediction | 25-08-2019

Joe Bergin and Aaron McHugh are playing for another year, while Cathal Kenny returns from abroad. Mountbellew-Moylough have been dealt a blow ahead of the tie with former Galway player Eoin Finnerty ruled out through injury to add to an already lengthy injury list. The Daly brothers Michael (captain) and John, who both started in Galways matches against London and Sligo, will carry the clubs hopes.

Annaghdown are a dual club and currently cater for Gaelic football, Hurling and Ladies Football. Annaghdown GAC is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in County Galway, Ireland.[1] The club is a member of the Galway GAA and was founded in 1887.[2] Underage teams in both hurling and football play in the Galway league and championships.

Newly-appointed Milltown manager Diarmuid Blake will be looking to get their SFC campaign off to a good start. Milltown have a nice blend of youth and experience with players like Mark Hehir, James Kavanagh, and the Martin brothers Michael and John, and young players like Eoin Mannion, Jack Kirrane and Liam Costello giving them youthful exuberance. But Milltown will be missing veteran Darren Mullahy through injury.

A great performance by our B team yesterday in defeating Bearna in Cregg. Under 14 Division 4 championship Annaghdown B team 0-12 Bearna 0.7. In fact that would have been greater only for some fine saves by the Bearna goalie.In a closer second half both teams had chances but Annaghdown always looked like they were going to come on on to NEXT MATCH IS ON THIS FRIDAY AGAINST st Michaels. Playing with the breeze in the first half Annaghdown scored some great points and lead at half time by 9 point to 1.

Hurling[edit]

Salthill-Knocknacarra are bottom in Division 1 of the Senior League after losing five of their six games, while Barna are mid-table in Division 2. Last year, Salthill-Knocknacarra were defeated by Mountbellew-Moylough in the county semi-final, while Barna defeated Cortoon Shamrocks after a replay in the Relegation Play-off final. This local derby could be tighter than last years affair when Salthill-Knocknacarra won by 2-13 to 0-8.

The first half was stuff of legend by our lads and the Kilkenny lads threw everything at us after re-appearing for second half. Never to be forgotten. A great year that ended with pride intact and it was an honour to be there amongst the brilliant Annaghdown support on Sunday. Thanks to all and onwards to 2015. They are a very good team but the loss of captain- Shane Collier- very early in second half , the quick sending off of Colm Monaghan and injury to Damien Comer put an end to our very gallant effort. After leading at half time( 0-7 to 0-4), the second half went Bennettsbridges way to leave the scoreline as above giving a rather false impression of match....

The whole Parish worked together to make this happen. -Corrandulla Post Office are up and running with their collection bottle. The library, known as "Leabharlann na gCairde" has proven to be a very valuable resource over the past number of years. There is substantial work and expense involved in this project. We are setting up drop off points around the Parish. -Children of Corrandulla National school will have a collection point in the school and -The Parish Council office will also take in coins on behalf of the library between 10am and 1pm Monday to Friday. There is now an opportunity for the library to take over another room in the girls' old school in Corrandulla and extend. These are the early days of getting this fundraising project off the ground. The Scrap Metal collections of 2011 & 2013 brought in a total of 85,000 which helped build our new Sports Hall and Astro Turf Pitch. They will happily accept any other euro coins along with old Irish coins and old Irish pound notes that may be lying around in jars and biscuit tins in houses in the Parish. ** Special notice to all in Annaghdown Parish** Please, Please, Please take a minute to read and share with all your family and friends in our Parish. They are looking for your 1 cent and 2 cent coins which are now being phased out. The Library now seek scrap metal of a different kind. More drop off points will be advertised in the coming week. Both young and old have enjoyed reading the great variety of books and attending various courses provided b...y the library. We are fortunate to have a Community Library in our parish run by a hard working group of volunteers.

In last years County Final, Mountbellew-Moylough came within seconds of dethroning Corofin, but Mchel Lundy kicked an equaliser, and Corofin subsequently won the replay. They are top of the table in Division 1, level on points with Corofin and Tuam Stars but they have a better score difference. It is the first time the two sides have met in the Championship since the 2016 county semi-final, which Mountbellew-Moylough won 3-15 to 1-4. Monivea-Abbey are on form this year, they top Division 3 having won five out of six games.

In the 1970s, Brother Vincent, a monk who taught in Corrandulla school, and a native of Kilkenny, started juvenile coaching and this work saw Annaghdown win several underage titles in the '80's, culminating in the winning of the 1980 Feile na Gael All-Ireland U14 title. The work started by Brother Vincent was continued by Bernard Naughton who set up hurling in the GAA club which was dominated by football before this oringally from Turloughmore, and it has seen Annaghdown being competitive at underage since. In the last decade Annaghdowns fortunes have improved at adult level with the club's top hurling team now trading its wares in the highly competitive Intermediate grade, reaching the semi-final for the first time in 2008.
