Community Games County Champions

23 May 2011

Aghaviller Community Games County Champions for the third year in a row.


Congratulations to the Aghaviller team which recently won the Community Games County Final, played in Johnstown. After a solid winning performance against St Johns Parish (O’ Loughlin Gaels) in the first match, the team were pitted against Johnstown in the second game.


At this point, Johnstown had already beaten Skeogh in their first match and so this game took on the significance of the final. Johnstown played very well in the first have and but for the brilliance of Dean Mason (Ballyhale) in the Aghaviller goal, would have been out of sight by half time.  A goal for Aghaviller three quarters of the way through the first half following a great block down by Dillon Wall (Dunnamaggin) on an attempted Johnstown clearance lead to the teams going in level at half time – 1 – 1 each. In the second half, Aghaviller found their rhythm and eventually pulled away for a deserved win.


In the final match, Skeogh, who had been well beaten in their previous two games, really put it up to Aghaviller and again the teams went in level at the break. After some re-organising of the team, Aghaviller pulled away for a comfortable win in the second half.


Great credit goes to the Aghaviller outfit who have won this county championship for the third year in a row and they now go forward to the Leinster Community Games championship. Dunnamaggin were represented by John FitzPatrick (selector) and players Cathal Ryan, Adam FitzPatrick, Harry Walsh, Dillon Wall, Eddie Dunne and Dylan Crehan, all of whom contributed very well on the day.
