U16 Division 1


Cavan Gaels V Laragh Utd


Laragh and Cavan Gaels met in the first game of the season of the Division 1 U16 league on Saturday last in Terry Coyle Park. Both sides took their time to settle into the game but when the Geals midfielder was black carded, Laragh settled and Pauric O Reilly got Laragh on the score board, team mate Lee Reilly added another. Max O Dee won the kick out, sent a quick ball into Niall Fitzpatrick who found O Reilly on the run in for a certain goal but for the brilliant save from the Geals net minder Paddy Murphy.  This piece of action spurned on the Geals side and Dylan Mc Mullen and Ciaran Cullen had 3 points on the board within minutes, at this stage it was end to end stuff, Paul Kelly and Adrian Lackey added one apiece. Great tackling from Ciaran O Grady and Hayden Smith denied any advance from the Geals who struck 3 wide’s in a row.  Jake Mc Govern finished the half showing remarkable determination winning the ball in a hard tackle in the Laragh half line, carrying forward and scoring a fantastic point from 40 meters out. 

Half time score

Laragh      0-4

Cavan Gaels   0-4


Laragh started the second half with a spring in their step, two quick converted frees from Jake Mc Govern and Lee Reilly gave them a two point cushion, Pauric O Reilly added another from play before the influential Dylan Mc Mullen grasped one back for the hosts.  Laragh now had the momentum and Barry Davies added his name to the scoreboard with a well-positioned free.  Great drives forward by the Gaels Ciaran Curry, Evan Fortune and Paul Kelly came to nothing though thanks to fine interception by Mark Mc Cabe, Gavin Brady and Jamie Cooney. O Reilly and Mc Govern added to their lead with two quick points leaving the score now reading 0-10 0-5.


The next play saw Will Mc Evoy win the kick out, pick out Marcus Hayden who showing strength and skill shot dead into the back of the Laragh net, it was now back to a two point game, Mark Brady won the resulting kick out lay off to Jake Mc Govern who put the ball between the posts. The Geals then had a goal disallowed for an infringement in the square but this was evened out when Laragh also found themselves with a disallowed goal after a difference of opinion from the umpires as to whether the ball crossed the line. The pressure was on now but Laragh sealed the victory with 3 points in quick succession from Eoin Walsh, Pauric O Reilly and the influential Jake Mc Govern.

ACFL Div 2: Opening Points for Butlersbridge


Butlersbridge 0-10                 

Laragh Utd 0- 9


Butlersbridge had a narrow one point win over Laragh United in an entertaining game played in Killeshandra on Sunday.

Laragh were playing with the wind in the first half and opened well with early points from Jason Walsh and Gerry Murray.  A great save by Laragh goalkeeper Joe Donohoe denied Caoimhin O’ Reilly a certain goal but Butlersbridge were coming more into the game and were level after 10 mins with points from Caoimhin O’Reilly and Fergal Flanagan.  Two pointed frees from Caoimhin O’ Reilly in the 13th and 14thmins put the Bridge ahead 0-4 to 0-2.  Points from Declan Brady and Paddy Rudden equalised again.  Laragh nearly got through for a goal before Oisin Carolan gave them the lead with a sweet point after 24 mins.  After 27 mins a Caoimhin O’Reilly free left the teams level again and it took another smart save from Joe Donohoe to keep parity at half time 0-5 each.

For the beginning of the second half Laragh introduced Colm McKenna, for his first action for 2 years after two cruciate ligament operations, for the injured Shane O’Rourke.  John Fitzpatrick gave Butlersbridge an early lead from a Fergal Flanagan pass but after 8 mins Ciaran Cooney with a Laragh point left it level again.  Fergal McKenna came into the Laragh team after 10 mins but a Caoimhin O’Reilly 45m free edged the Bridge ahead 0-7 to 0-6.  Another great save combined with desperate defending denied John Fitzpatrick a Bridge goal.  A Paddy Rudden free after 18 mins levelled again, 7 points each and the game was now up for grabs.  Two well taken points from Cian O’Rourke, 18th and 20th mins, seemed to put Laragh in the ascendency.  Killian Leddy and Darren Fitzpatrick came into the Bridge attack and Conal Donohoe came on for Laragh, replacing injured Jason Walsh after he received a heavy tackle.  Johnny Leddy left the minimum between the sides after a great run (24mins).  Liam Canning came into the Bridge midfield at this stage and a Caoimhin O’Reilly free in the 26th min levelled.  In the next attack Caoimhin again pointed a free to give the Bridge the lead 0- 10 to 0-9.   Despite three Laragh attacks they couldn’t get the equaliser and a close game ended with victory to Butlersbridge.
