Notes from the week : 

We got off to winning ways last Monday night with the u 12 boys who had a super game and a great 3 point win over Carly/St Joseph's down in Ballinode. 

Tuesday saw our u14 girls out in Ballintogher against St Michaels and with great scores came away with a win also . 

Friday night at home the Junior men played host to St Mary's in the pitch and came out the winners on the night winning 1/16 to St Mary's 1/6. 

Our u12 girls played a tough game in Markievicz Park in their league final v CT Gaels on Saturday but were beaten by a stronger side on the day . It was a fantastic achievement for these band of youngsters to reach the final considering 2/3 of the team are u10 girls so well done to them and their managers . 

Today our senior men played St Molaise Gaels in the league at home and had a comprehensive win across all the positions with a final score of 6/12 to 4 points . 

Congratulations to our local NS Drimina who are all Ireland Champions in NS Soccer tournament played in the Aviva this week !

Intermediate ladies win the league

Match report from the girls final today . Thanks Rian Bailey for sending it me . 

Congratulations to our Senior Ladies who won the Intermediate League final this morning in Cloonacool. The ladies showed great spirit to overcome a very talented Eastern Harps side.

Harps went into the lead twice in the opening minutes, as Tourlestrane responded with scores from Captain Shauna Henry and Tara Walsh. Unfortunately for Harps, they didn't score again until they were eight points down, including Tourlestrane scores from Grainne Carty (3) and a Leonie Gaughan penalty. Harps got two scores back, but Leonie Gaughan struck another point before the break, after a brilliant pass from corner back Shauna Walsh. 

Half time score, Tourlestrane 1-8 Eastern Harps 0-4.

Eastern Harps started the stronger of the two sides in the second half, thanks to a goal from corner forward Megan McCormack, shortening Tourlestrane's leading margin to 1-9 to 1-7. An unfortunate sin bin for Laura Walsh meant that Tourlestrane had to work even harder to hold the game. Tourlestrane defenders such as Molly Kennedy, Rebecca O'Hara and Ellen Bailey worked extremely hard to keep the Harps attack out. Saves from goalkeeper Colette Walsh also greatly contributing. The midfield pairing of Anna Corcoran and Aisling Egan played a huge influence on the game, aiding in attack and defence. A goal from centre half forward Nikki Brennan showed to be the real turning point in the game, as Eastern Harps could only respond with one point for the remainder of the tie. Leonie Gaughan added 3 more points to her tally, as Sarah Cunney, Laura Surlis and Tara Walsh kept the shooters supplied. Tourlestrane's substitutes played a huge role in keeping the score line in their favour, with Katie Molloy and Dearbhla Jones carrying the ball up the field, and closing down the opposition. Laura Hegarty, another substitute, also contributed a point, which was to be the last of the game. 

The match finished 2-15 to 1-8 in favour of Tourlestrane. 

Both teams gave their all in a brilliant game of football. In fairness to Harps, they put up a strong fight, and the score line did not do justice to their efforts. Congratulations to the management team of David Bailey, Enda Kelly, Austin Walsh and Jenny Lundy, who have put together an outstanding ladies team, hopeful of bringing home some more silverware come Championship.

Tourlestrane: Colette Walsh; Ellen Bailey, Laura Walsh, Shauna Walsh; Molly Kennedy, Shauna Henry(0-2), Rebecca O'Hara; Aisling Egan, Anna Corcoran; Sarah Cunney, Nikki Brennan(1-2), Tara Walsh(0-1); Grainne Carty(0-3), Leonie Gaughan(1-5), Laura Surlis(0-1); Katie Molloy, Dearbhla Jones, Laura Hegarty(0-1), Liz Grier, Rachel Walsh, Lisa Walsh, Tiffany Murtagh, Ciara Henry, Caroline McGowan, Catherine Marren,  Cathy Brennan, Sarah Brennan, Edel Meers.

Senior men win Saturday evenings league game by smallest margin 
Senior lads v Tubbercurry Saturday.
On Saturday evening Tubbercurry Senior men hosted Tourlestrane in the Senior League. In the first quarter  Tourlestrane had taken a comfortable lead with a well taken goal from John Kelly added to earlier points from Liam Gaughan and Brian Egan. But quickly when Tubbercurry came into the game the gap started to narrow and after James Leonard was shown the red card by referee John Gilmartin just before the half time whistle Tourlestrane were left with a lot to do with just 14 men, They went to the dressing room with a 4 point lead. The second half saw points quickly from Gaughan and Cian Gilmartin with both teams playing hard and fast. While bravely going down on a ball to deny a certain goal Tubbercurry keeper Colm McGee was unfortunate to sustain an injury and had to be substituted. This inspired Tubbercurry to a spirited fight back and a well taken point from Brian Morahan left just a goal between the teams. Cathal Henry sustained a hand injury and had to take to the bench and his substitute Aran Murtagh took some fine scores also. Stephen Kilcoyne and Stephen Henry both scored in the closing minutes but neither team seemed willing to let go of the win with Tourlestrane having to work all the harder with only 14 men. Fine defending on both sides paid off closing down their opposition. Tubbercurry scored an opportunistic goal after a scramble  in the Tourlestrane goalmouth and after a entertaining game of football Tourlestrane came out on top with a 1 point margin.
