Mens Captains Prize, Day 1

 

Richie Benaud once said, “Any captain can only do his best for the team and for cricket. When you are winning, you are a hero. Lose, and the backslappers fade away”. Well our Captain Gary Corcoran must have been winning at the weekend given the numbers who turned up for Day 1 of his prize, such was the respect for the man. The participants all started with dreams of hallowed immortality, but as usual some were delusional. The leaders at this half way point are Paul Bates, Peadar Gill and Canice Hogan. Buts it’s a long road yet, and many a good man has exploded on Day 2 so watch this space.

 

Remember we will be having a joint presentation with the Lady Captain, meal and band in the Riverside Hotel Virginia on Friday August 26th at 8pm, tickets will be on sale next Sunday.

Mens Club News:

This was the weekend which saw torrential downpours and Cavan GAA putting manners on the Tyrone boys in Clones. All of which did not take away from the turn out for the weekend competition which given the weather was quite remarkable. In first place amongst these mermaids or is it mermen, was Steven McCabe with a fine score of 58, second was Finbarr O’Reilly warming up ahead of the June 21st solstice with Peter (Im playing great golf) Kermath in third. Well done all, great results.

Jodie Hetherton Memorial Trophy: As usual this update doubles as a weather update but how can it not when the sun shines and our course looks as well as it does, with the sun shimmering on the waters of Lough Ramor and everyone in good form. The good form expanded into the golf games of the members with great scores recorded ahead of the clubs classic this weekend. In first place came Conor McEvoy with 44pts, this was Conors first win in the senior ranks so well done Conor with a fantastic score. Next up was Stephen Smith with 40pts which was more impressively a level par round of 64 gross. Fantastic Stephen. In third place and only beaten by a count back was club stalwart Peter Callaghan. Congratulations all.

Mens Results:

On this, the weekend where 100 years ago the men of the GPO hung out the flag of war, its interesting to think that a lot of us may not have been having the luxury of a leisurely round of golf if those tentative steps to independence had not been taken. With many of our numbers descending on Croke Park, a few of our own Laochra (or just those with no interest in GAA i.e. Dubs, Meath members) took to the fairways for the opportunity to see their names in lights in the winners enclosure. First again this week was a name that Im writing a lot lately with Peter Foran (60 nett, not age) coming out as the winner, narrowly pipping Liam Murphy (61 nett) into second place. Congrats Peter, I like the cut of your jib young man, and the cut we will make to your handicap.

The Gladiators came out into the auditorium of Virginia Golf Club blinking in the sun in readiness for the long season ahead after the Spring League has truly sprung. This is the last competition before the first Golfer of the Year event allowing the members to stretch their golfing muscles and show the rest who is ready for the challenge and who will not see their name written in legend. The man who came out victorious, Charlton Heston like from this weeks tussle was Vivian Connell with a fantastic score of 58 points, a great result Vivian your odds have been cut for the Golfer of the Year prize. When theres a first, there is always a second and that was Peter Foran with a great score of 60. Peter was moaning all Spring League in relation to his form, as the Bard would say, I think the Lady doth protest too much. Well done Peter.

The first Golfer of the Year event is this weekend and the timesheet is posted in the clubhouse, get your name in to challenge last years winner Stephen Smith. Also the club matchplays are also up for participation, if your not down, your not in and the bragging rights for winning some of these will keep you going for years.

Sunday April 10th

 

This weekend saw the hale and hearty  of the club trying their best to not focus on individual results and rather play as a team in a Four Ball Betterball format. Augusta may have the Masters but we have many Masters in Virginia Golf Club all willing and able to step up when needed, pair up and put their formidable talents on display irrespective of the format in front of them. When the battles were finished two pairings stood out in front, these were: T Lynch and M Farrelly in first place, followed closely by P. Coleman and P. McInerney. Well done all.

Our first Golfer of the Year event is coming up so make sure your name is down on the timesheet in the clubhouse.

Mens Spring League

For many Easter is a holy and spiritual time of year, a time to take stock, be glad and thankful with what you have and to look to the future reinvigorated and motivated for the year ahead. Some of our members are in that position in the Spring League, others are wondering what they are doing exactly in it at all! Nonetheless things are hotting up with only a couple of rounds to go with the Captain still in contention for the league and quite frankly this cannot be allowed to happen. He will get enough plaudits and kind words this year based purely on rank to not need to be complimented for winning things as well. 

Captains Drive in 2016

It was with anticipation, motivation and just a little trepidation that our Captains, Gary Corcoran, Pauline Clarke and Kyle McGuinness, took to the tee for the 2016 Captains drive in. A great show of solidarity from fellow members ensured that the pressure was further heaped upon them. The good, the bad and surely not the ugly, gathered behind them to watch them all drive into office. The drives were delivered with aplomb with the Lady Captain shading it for class with her drive. The competition that followed was a great mismatch of team event, foursomes, scramble and organised craic, as quite literally swathes of golfers took to the course on a day that even the weather showed up and played its part.

Mens Results

The sun shone and the male club members came blinking into the light like bears emerging from a season of hibernation. Some appearing to have wintered better than others and the sound of creaking and moaning  on the first tee with players “warming up” was similar to the sounds you would hear at the docks when the tall ships are in town. Irrespective of all of this, the very serious business of the Spring League was still up for grabs. The winner this weekend was the man was our one and only competition secretary James O’Brien, a popular member and winner who showed everyone else how it was to be done. Congrats James and hard luck Peter Callaghan and Victor Nesbitt who were nipping at his heels. 

Virginia Golf Club Mens Results

Well the male members woke up on Sunday morning expecting to be able to abdicate their breakfast making duties on Mothers Day due to having a tee time booked only for Jack Frost to conspire against them and close the course for the morning. When normal business resumed at 1pm, the enthusiastic members took to the tee for a Sunday Sweep in what was a cold but pleasant Spring afternoon. The delay in play did not stop the scores from soaring and the following members emerged victorious: 1st John Halloran 42pts, 2nd Richard McEvoy 38pts 3rd Vivian Connell 35pts. Well done lads.

Please note that due to the weather the Spring League has been extended for 2 weeks with the final day and presentation of prizes being on Sunday April 3rd. The Captain is top of the heap at the moment but deserves to be challenged and there is still plenty of time to achieve this.

Mens Club

We thought for a minute on Sunday that the weather had us beaten again but the Captain arrived with his breakfast in hand and like Kanoot holding back the tide, his mere majestorial presence thawed the frost and away we went. The competition was fierce as was to be expected from a group of men deprived action last week and spurred on by the fear of possible marital engagement due to the Leap Year. Joe Hopkins proved the winner however so well done Joe. The overall League is being led by our Captain with Victor Nesbitt and Martin Sheery nipping at his heels, so there is still a lot to play for.

Round 3 of the Spring League brought the great and the good out in fine weather to nip at the heels of our Captain after he showed us how it was done last week. Anyone witnessing the play of the golfers on display could not but be amazed at the quality of some, not all, of those who teed up and had at it this weekend. As we know from previous reports the Gill family are a family with a lot of golfing talent, 90 % of it being within Peter Gill and again this talent shone through seeing Peter take his first win of the season with Dave Reilly and Peadar Quealy very close behind. Well done Gents. 

So as to ensure that Peter does not have all the bragging rights at home our 2014 Captain Peader will have to step up in the coming weeks and get a win in. No pressure.

 

Mens Results

 

It was a nippy one on Sunday as the members took to the course for round two of the Spring League. The early birds caught the worm as the day deteriorated and the weather closed in on us. Our morning crew ensured they set the mark that everyone had to follow. A sign of any leader is his ability to lead from the front, to go over the top of the trench when the pressure is on, inspiring his troops to follow him into the thick of it. By golly we had that with our Captain Gary Corcoran this weekend! He sliced the opposition aside with a masterful display, with more than 5 clubs, that won him top prize on the day and also top of the league after two weekends. Congratulations Captain but remember lads, when you at the top, there is only one way to go!

Overall standings after 2 Rounds: 1st Gary Corcoran, 2nd Alex McAuley, 3rd Patrick Murphy. Still all to play for.

Jack Benny once said, “Give me golf clubs, fresh air and a beautiful partner, and you can keep the clubs and the fresh air!” Call it stir crazy, call it an effort to maintain matrimonial harmony, call it what you will, but the visible gusto of the male club members playing on Sunday after a two week weather driven golf hiatus was a thing to behold. Members crawled out of the woodwork, dusted down the clubs and had at it, like men on a mission. First prize went to M. Sherry with M Keating coming in close behind. Well done gentlemen on setting the marker for the year ahead.

First place, Jack Frost. 

As the poet Shelley said "If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?". Admittedly he may have been under the influence with Byron in Greece but we can but hope normality returns and we're all back flailing away next weekend when play will resume, weather permitting!

Its that time of year when members thoughts turn to seeing the big jolly man, with the beard and the red face, no not the PRO, rather Father Christmas, Santa Claus or Pere Noel. The club has been very similar to the redsuited gentleman in recent weeks giving winning members turkeys etc and this week is no exception. Given the recent weather a small field went to post but a real thorough bred was first over the line, in the guise of ex Captain John Mulvaney. Congratulation John and all round to Johns to partake in the Christmas Hamper.

 

Next week sees a mixed scramble starting at 1230 followed by our traditional Christmas drinks. This has always been a great way to round off the year and wish your fellow members a Happy Christmas so we hope to see as many people as possible there.

Mens Results:

As Oscar Wilde once said, “I can resist everything except temptation” and the lure of a big bird at Christmas is one that the male members of Virginia Golf Club cannot, it seems, pass up. As this weekends turkey competition saw more brave souls face the elements than usual. The wind blew, the leaves swirled, the golfballs soared but the players kept their heads and brought in some wonderful scores given the circumstances. This weeks hunter gatherer bringing the meat to the table for Christmas was ex Captain Peadar Gill with a great score of 39 points, followed closely by Vincent Brady with 37 points. Well done gentlemen.

The twos competition was not won for another weekend so we have another rollover, culminating into a good pot of cash for the next lucky winner that would buy a lot of sprouts in the run up to Christmas.

Mens Results,

It was a turkey shoot again this weekend, with all the competitiors “gobble gobbling” up the opportunity to feed the family come Christmas, and win another turkey for the table. The weather actually surprised us with being calm and inviting for all who took part, so a good turn out made for a competitive morning of golf. But yet again a legend appeared who is no stranger to taking the winnings and this years Captains Prize winner, Mr. Tom Lynch will be bringing a turkey back home this Christmas. Hot on his heels Stanley Bowles, with our competition secretary James O’Brien getting greedy now and coming third, you would think one turkey would be enough for James.

Remember lads the 2’s competition has a potential pot of €60 and as the old adage goes, if your not in, you cant win.

Mens Results

It is fair to say that this weekends weather was far from balmy, however those brave souls who ventured out for the weekends competition could be described as possibly just that. Love of the game is the only reason I can think that people ventured out and as Nietzsche once said, “There is always some madness in love, but there is also some reason in madness”. And that reason this weekend must have been the fantastic score that ex captain John Mulvaney posted, to win, of 46 points. An amazing score in the conditions, but where there is a first prize, there is a runner up and that this week went to Peter Foran, with a score (37 pts) nowhere near Johns, but brilliant nonetheless in the deluge. Congrats gentlemen.

The Halloween weekend brought out all sorts of ghouls, ghosts and goblins and the golf club was no different, by the heads on some of the members emerging from Sundays fog!

Mens Results

As Old Blue Eyes would say, the Autumn winds and the Winter winds, they have come and gone and we are having uncharacteristically mild weather, some of our members who would normally be in hibernation mode are still to be seen roaming wildly over the park. Sunday mornings competition was no different, with a great turn out despite the early start of the World Cup Rugby. 1st this week was Michael Murphy with our Competitions Secretary James O'Brien coming in second. Well done gentlemen, and James you obviously did not play with the Captain this week and therefore could concentrate on your game minus the usually wit or lack thereof from the Captain.

Men's Results 

On Sunday morning the 4ball betterball pairings took to the course in gusto. The Autumn leaves on the ground led to scenes similar to a middle aged men's Easter egg hunt as golfers peered in the rough for the elusive white golf ball. Still winners are winners and again form in the Seniors competitions carried through to a Sunday competition with Frank Fahy and Patrick Murphy romping away with a 48 pts. Followed by V Connell and A Rock with 42pts. Congratulations lads.

Men's Results

The final monthly medal was held on an unseasonally warm morning seeing a good number of members trying to get their hands on a silver medal of glory. Fierce competition, solid play and outstanding scores were the order of the day but it's fair to say the cream rose yet again to the top. This months winner was Peter Gill. Peter has had an outstanding year on the course, a great talent and a pleasure to play with, which is the mark of a good member. Congrats Peter. Cat 1 went to Ray Foley, Cat 2 Patrick Murphy, Cat 3 Alex McCauley and 2's inevitably Peter Gill. Well done all.

Men's Results

The sun shone on Lough Ramor on Sunday and like bears emerging from hibernation golfers took to the tee box blinking in the sun shine. It was a stroke competition for our Vice Captain Mr. Gary Corcoran's prize and a lot of strokes were played by many. However two men played less than most and these were:

1st Sean McEvoy

2nd Finian O'Driscoll

Men's Results

Sunday morning saw a lot of men take to the course nursing sore heads from the 70th celebrations from the night before. However they saw the best part of the day weather wise and took advantage of it to post some very decent scores, all things considered. First on the day was Vivian Connell just pipping Liam Murphy past the post. Congrats gentlemen.

Mens Results.

 

Sunday saw the monthly opportunity for members who have not recieved a medal since their Confirmation to battle it out in the Monthly medal competition. As you would expect from this time of year some people played in fantastic sunshine where others got wetter than a walk along the Wild Atlantic Way. Nonetheless as is always the case some will always rise above these obstacles to claim the medal and the glory. The honour this month went to Eddie Cooney with 56, with Cat 1 going to Stephen Smith, Cat 2 to Gerry Magee and Cat 3 to Thomas Boyle. Well done lads any handicap revisions will be posted in the clubhouse.

There were no twos winners this week so the club treasurer has slept well for another week.

Well last weekend we saw the great and good of Virginia Golf Club come out to participate in the second round of our Captain (Mr. Peter Kermaths) prize. Some came with anticipation, some with hope, some because they literally have nothing better to do on a Sunday morning, all of whom however arrived wishing our ever popular Captain the very best in this his big day and the summit of his year as club captain. The early morning men were on the majority not expecting to rattle the leaders but as we know in golf stranger things can happen, and the one thing that everyone agreed on was that the weather was magnificent and fitting for the day that was in it. The Captain welcomed everyone as they were dispatched to do battle, and his fair positioning of the flags and his thoughtful movement of the tee markers meant for most it was not the usual automatic club choices they had come to expect, thinking was the order of the day.

 

Men's Captains Prize Day 2

The old saying, lovely weather for ducks came to mind on Sunday, when in fact I'd imagine ducks would not even go out on the rain that fell. The grouping of men peeking out from the clubhouse on Sunday morning made for a disappointed bunch when the weather did not allow day two to even start.

The pins were selected, the greens were immaculate and the fairways ready for the golfers of note to make their mark in our 2015 Captains Prize Day 1. Our Capt Mr. Peter Kermath welcomed everyone to the tee as everyone wished him well for his two days. After day one, the early clubhouse leaders are as follows, sleepless nights ahead for these men before next Sundays showdown:

On Sunday morning due to the weather our members experienced more water than Jacques Cousteau, nonetheless a throng of brave (some would say mad) souls challenged the elements and took to the course. The results were fantastic, again the cream rose to the top with our club low handicaps coming to the front. We saw two fantastic gross 63's from Stephen Smith and Aidan King, there will a fine battle come Captains day for gross prize! Full results as follows:

Overall: A. King

Cat1: S. Smith

Cat2: M Sherry

Cat 3: C Hogan

Presidents Prize Day 2

The sun rose on Sunday July 20th and as Sky Sports would say it was moving day for the Presidents prize field. Many teed it up, but some more than others knew they had a more realistic chance of claiming the coveted trophy. Talent is fleeting but class is permanent and with this, from the chasing group came Stephen Smith, winning his second major in a row with a sublime performance. Canice Hogan, came second with Tom Lynch in third and last years President Seamus O'Meara in Fourth spot. Best Gross went to Ray Foley and Ladies Winner was Sue Ennis. 

Mr Victor Nesbitts Presidents Prize Day 1

Don't mind Scottish Opens, or US LPGA events or anything on Sky Sports there was only one golf event worthy of note this weekend and that was Victor Nesbitts Presidents Prize. All golfers teed up, the hooks, the experts, the hopeful, all levelled by the stroke format and after day one the following men lead the charge:


Hi Folks! Just a little reminder that our next Virginia Development Association meeting is Monday 13th July at 8.30pm in The Riverfront...That's next Monday! Hope to see a good turnout...

Mens Singles 4/5 July

This weekend saw a furious competition between members ahead of the upcoming Presidents Prize. Many people were out sharpening their game and getting another vital card in ahead of the first major of the year. The winner this weekend was Mr. Eric Davidson, with our beloved Captain Mr. Peter Kermath a close second. The Captains recent sojurn at the David Leadbetter academy in Florida paying dividends just at the right time in the season. Again this weekend despite the best efforts of everyone a "2" proved as elusive as a Greek debt decision, so the jackpot rolls on.

Lady Captains Prize for men

This weekend we saw a great turn out for our Lady Captain, Sara Loftus's prize for the men. The weather was great, the course was great and believe it or not the golf was great (for most!). Our golfers took to the fairways vying for the accolade of champion and as is always the case a champion emerged, this time in the form of Gerry Magee, closely followed by young Peter Gill (again carrying the Gill family golfing flag). Well done everyone, and the Mens club would like to thank our Lady Captain for the competition and wish her all the best on her upcoming big day. There were no 2's winners this week so the jackpot rolls on.

The mens club members took to the course on Fathers Day resplendent undoubtedly in new socks and golf paraphernalia supplied by their children and used them to there full effect. In a weekend that saw Cavan triumph in London and ex Cavan football legend emerged from the throng to claim top spot. Pole position this week went to Fintan Cahill, with second place going to John Donegan. Congrats lads. Remember the clocks ticking to get those qualifying cards in for the majors so get out there and play.

Anyone who visited the course over the Classic weekend will see why we should be proud to be members of Virginia Golf Club. The course looked and played amazingly, the amount of local sponsors of everything from raffle prizes to bottles of water show how established this club is within the community, and finally the hospitality shown to golfers when they came in off the course was a credit to everyone involved. Winners on the day with a phenomenal score were the team of Marie Gillick, David Costello, Charlie Gillick and Gavin Tobin. Well done guys. Special mention to Eric Davidson who had a hole in one on Friday evening. A big thank you to all our sponsors, participants and volunteers all weekend long. Full details of the day are on the clubs website. #smallclubbigfuture

Sunday May 18th Results

For members of the club who are numerologists, Sunday was a fascinating day with our club results. Young Peter Gill who happily celebrated his birthday on the day, not only became 22, he shot 22 points on the front nine and 22 points on the back nine making him our winner with 44 points. Happy birthday Peter and congratulations, rumour has it you have now got a lower handicap than your father and our ex Captain Peadar Gill. Second place on Sunday with 22 points was Michael Keating. Well done Michael.

May Day has been celebrated in Ireland since pagan times as the feast of Bealtaine. Traditionally, bonfires were lit to mark the coming of summer and to banish the long nights of winter.Our Captain Peter Kermath has undoubtedly lit the bonfires and banished the winter blues by coming out victorious again with a fine score of net 58. Well done Captain, we can hear the handicap secretary's pencil sharpener working overtime!

In second place it was nearly a case of the early bird catches the worm with Joe Greene scoring net 63, close but on this occasion,  no cigar. Good score none the less Joe, congratulations.

Sunday saw the first medal competition of 2015 and the weather changed more than a politicians opinions prior to an election. The brave golfers who took to the course in their numbers battled rain, hailstones, wind and finally the sun came out and with it some impressive scores. In first place was Stephen McCabe with a net 53, a great score Stephan and a medal for the cabinet. Category prizes were as follows: Cat 1 Peadar Gill, Cat 2 Peter Callaghan, Cat 3 Finbar O'Rielly, well done all.

The timesheet for next week is in the clubhouse, and will be posted on the website as well.

Sunday April 20th

No placing, no lift clean and drop, real golf in the sunshine saw members vying for glory in the first four ball betterball of the year. The winning pairs were First victor nesbitt and Joe green 43 point's,Second Peter gill and Martin sherry 42 points. Well done lads, great golf on a great day. 

The weather broke on Friday night and the omens looked bad for this years Captains Drive in. However on Sunday at lunchtime similar to the personalities of our captains themselves a sunnier disposition bathed the course in light as Captain Peter Kermath and Lady Captain Sara Loftus took to the tees under more pressure than Rory McEllroy teeing off in the Masters.

The Easter bunny came and went and our members took to the fairways to help walk off all that chocolate in our first qualifying round post Spring League. Winner today Derek Shecklton with 41 points. 2nd Peadar Gill with 40 points. Congratulations.

Make sure that you get your names down for the Captains drive ins on April 12th.

Spring League Week 7

Many people took to the course, the sun shone and the scene was one of serenity and sporting prowess, and from the group of players vying for the immortality brought about by success, on this the penultimate round of the Spring League, Peter Gill emerged with 44 points.

Congrats Peter for a great score, next week sees the Spring League coming to a close so if you have not been out in a while, get out there and give your team the last push over the line.

The sun peaked through the clouds and the fairways filled up with members all wanting to lead the pack in this weeks installment of the Spring League. But there can be only one winner and this week the honours went to Pat Connell with 43points. Congratulations Pat.

Virginia Boxing Club has organised a Gala Dinner on the 10th April 2015.

Many brave souls hit the course for week 4 of our Spring League on March 1st with the sunshine illuminating a fresh Spring morning, then a force of nature hit and Virginia momentarily turned into Alaska as the snow fell. But this moment of meteorological mayhem was fleeting and one man, a force of nature himself emerged from the pack triumphant.

Love may have been in the air on Saturday the 14th with Cupid firing arrows at lovers, but on Sunday our members got back into battle mode for round 2 of the Spring League.

The winner this week with a great score of 42 points was Vivian Connell. Congratulations Vivian.

Despite the fog and many golfers resembling Gorillas in the Mist the Spring League finally kicked off with an almighty bang last weekend.

The winner this week was Peter Foran with a fantastic 49 points, this was a phenomenal score by Peter and really has put it up to the rest of the participants and set a very strong marker for the next few weeks.

Again the weather gods were against us with no golf played Sunday last and the Spring League kick off has been delayed a week. Details of the teams for the Chestnut Tree Inn Spring League are posted on the club website and on display in the clubhouse.

 

Virginia and District Historical Society will host a talk entitled 'My Virginia' by Virginia native Brian Mc Cabe. This talk will take place in Virginia Show Centre on Thursday 19th February at 8.30pm sharp. All are welcome.

Seniors:

Munterconnaught 2-6 Arva 0-17. Munterconnaught welcomed The Junior Champions, Arva, in Ryefield on Saturday evening last and gave the championship a run for their money in a good sporting game. Arva always kept their necks in front but Munterconnaught never lay down and kept fighting back with two well taken goals in what was a decent game of football. Munterconnaught finished a disappointing 9th in the league table, but this gives themselves a chance of staying in Div 2 for 2015. Looks like this playoff will now be between Munteconnaught and Drung. Fixtures to be confirmed asap.

Seniors Golf
The golfing season came to an end on Tuesday, September 30th with a very enjoyable 9-hole scramble followed by a presentation, lunch and entertainment in the Riverfront Hotel. From May to September, about 100 members (over 55) took part in a weekly scramble. A draw and shotgun start took place each week so that all members had the opportunity to meet as many other members as possible. Each event was very well attended due in no small part to our fine summer weather, but also as a result of the great fun and camaraderie that these outings bring to the club and those involved. Golf lessons for all levels of ability were arranged with County Cavan golf pro Bill Noble, and our own resident pro, Martina Gillen, both of whom helped progress many beginners with remarkable results. It's little wonder that Virginia G.C. is now in a very healthy position with increased membership and participation. The Seniors group has contributed considerably to this success and at the end of the season were able to make a sizable contribution to the club finances.

A thoroughly enjoyable day/evening was had by all attendees with almost 60 golfers teeing off in a mixed scramble and 90+ congregating for the BBQ.

Minor Championship

Round 2 - Blackwater Gaels 2 - 08  Templeport 3 - 09

Another captains prize has come and gone but yet another day to live long in the memory. The usual clubhouse hospitality and craic was on offer ably led by Linda Gill and her merry crew, and there was some sparkling golf on the course. After 36 holes there was only one winner and deservedly so after some breathtaking driving and all round great golf, Stephen Smith won by 4 shots, sealing the deal with a burst of 3s on the last 5 holes, in other words 3 under par!! well done to Captain Peadar on 2 great days and a successful year to date.

Captain Peadar Gill's prize is underway and the 2nd day promises to be exciting. At end of day 1 there were 2 men who stood apart from the field after brilliant 59s, Stephen Smith and Rory O'Connell. But as with the Presidents prize, there are lots of lads waiting to spring from the bunch should the leading pair make any mistakes Sergio style. Good luck to all next week. Presentation of the Captain's prize will take place in Lakeside Manor at 9pm on Sunday.
The annual club outing is planned for Sept 13th but with a difference this year. The golf will be played in Virginia followed by gourmet BBQ in Park Lodge afterwards, keep the date free, keep eye on noticeboard for details.

What a fitting end to the 1st "Major" of the year, the new format for the Presidents prize certainly didn't reduce the excitement in any way with 2 gents ties on top of the leaderboard after the 36 holes, Gary Corcoran overcoming Day 1 leader Sean McEvoy by virtue of his fantastic 58 nett on Day 2, extremely hard luck on Sean after 2 incredibly consistent rounds from him with 62 to follow his 61 last week. All went very well on the day, huge thanks to everyone involved, a day fitting for President Seamus O'Meara. After the rigors of the golf, the Lakeside Manor hosted the presentation and congrats to all the winners on the day.

 

The 1st major of the year is underway and the 2nd half of Seamus O'Meara's Presidents prize throws in on Sunday next with a tight bunch at top of the leader board. Timesheet is posted in clubhouse, leaders out in reverse order in afternoon. Prizegiving in Lakeside Manor at 8pm.

Virginia and District Historical Society was set up in response to a keen and new - found interest in local history by many in our community.  An integral part of the Virginia 400 celebrations was a series of six lectures on local history topics. Large enthusiastic audiences attended all of these talks.  Transition Year students in Virginia College completed a project on the history of the town and held an exhibition of their findings. The senior pupils of St. Mary’s N.S. were given a talk on the development of the town through the ages and they engaged in related art and craft activities and also held a celebratory concert. They also participate in walking tours of the town. Local history has been a topic of conversation and discussion among old and young since the celebrations.

Ramor Seniors;

Ramor and Cuchullains shared the points on Sunday afternoon last after a ding dong battle over the sixty minutes in Mullagh. The visitors will rue their wastefulness in front of the posts especially in the second half, when despite having the lions share of possession failed to light up the score board.

This allowed the home side to increase the pressure in the closing minutes and points from Shane Smith and Seamus Cahill ensured the draw. Ramor 0-12 Cuchullains 1-9.

Ramor Seniors;

After two lacklustre performances in recent weeks, our senior team delivered a memorable victory against Cavan Gaels in Terry Coyle Park on Sunday afternoon last, beating the home side by the narrowest of margins.

A Keith Soden penalty in the first half proved to be the difference on the score board after the hour. But the immense work rate by the whole team in the closing stages of the match ensured the points went east in what was a tight and difficult contest.

Special mention must be made of our younger panellists Jack Doyle and Mossy Farrelly who delivered sterling displays throughout the whole sixty minutes.

Full Time; Ramor 1-6 Cavan Gaels 0-8.

Ramor play Cuchulainns on Sunday @2pm in Ramor Park. Juniors play afterwards.

Ramor Seniors;

Our seniors lost to Mullaghoran on Sunday last by the narrowest of margins. A strong wind ensured that scores were few and far between in what was a fractious match which saw three red cards in the opening half hour.

The visitors only registered one score in the first thirty, a superb goal courtesy of Ado Cole. Despite this however the sides were still level at half time with the home side only putting three on the board.

Scores were slightly more abundant in the second half with Ramor men Anton Reilly, James Bradley and Shane Cole all splitting the posts. The points looked set to be shared when Shane Cole popped over his second late in the game from  a sideline ball, but was inexplicably waved wide.

Full Time; Ramor 1-3 Mullaghoran 0-7

Ramor Seniors;

Our seniors made it three wins from three in Lavey on Saturday afternoon last on a score line of 1-11 to 1-9. It was a hard fought win played in bitterly cold conditions. After notching up impressive margins in our two previous league matches, this was just the test our lads needed against a Lavey side who have gotten the better of us in too many recent encounters.

A textbook dispossession by Simon Cadden in the first half found Anton Reilly who unselfishly laid the ball off to Ronan Keating (welcome back!) who found the net. This proved to be the crucial score of the hour against a typically dogged home side who never let up once.

Ramor play Castlerahen (away) in the fourth round on March 23rd.

This eagerly awaited publication will be officially launched on Friday night October 19th at 8pm in the Riverfront Hotel, Virginia.

Entitled “Virginia 400, A Portrait” it is a fascinating and compelling chronicle of  the history of Virginia and it depicts the transformation of the town  and its people over the past 400 years. But this book is not all about history per say as it also covers many more subjects such as information on Lough Ramor, its flora and fauna. It also carries a large collection of rare and ancient photographs. Contemporary Virginia features heavily with the impact of the population  explosion in more recent years and the multi cultural aspect of it explored in detail.

Virginia 1st XV .....13
Londonderry YMCA 1st XV..... 6

Virginia RFC's senior side started their first match in the new league campaign with a hard fought victory over Londonderry YMCA at Deerpark on Saturday past. The Cavan side more than held their own in the early exchanges, putting pressure on Londonderry which led to the opening score. Virginia secured possession off a line-out on their opponents twenty-two which allowed them to move forward with number 8 Matthew McWeeney breaking through the Londonderry defence, dummying past the full back and diving in for a try under the posts. Out-half, Daniel McNamee added two points with the conversion making it 7 points to nil for Virginia.

Virginia U12s began their season with a trip to Louth and a visit to Dundalk. What started as a gloomy morning turned into autumn sunshine by the time the players took to the field. Both teams looked rusty early on and the pressure and possession fluctuated accordingly. Virginias forwards had the edge at set pieces with great work from Sorcha Higgins, Rebecca Snell, Robert Lochaden, Evan Charters, Aaron Cooke, Michael McKeown-Boyle, Killian Collins and Ronan McKeown. Dundalk however dominated at the breakdown so no team could really gain dominance. Half backs Amanda McQuade and Aaron Kierans probed the Dundalk defence, but the backs were rarely released. Any Dundalk attacks however were defended ferociously by the backs with Jason Henderson, Aaron Mannion, and Cian Walker rarely missing a tackle. A special mention must go to debut boy Adrian Lynch who showed he's a boy with a bright future. All this led to an exciting 0-0 draw between two evenly matched teams.

 

The annual social outing is taking place on October 13th and this year the venue is the Old course at Headfort golf club. If interested, please add name to the sheet posted in the clubhouse, poster posted with all details, golf and meal included..

Sunday last was Mr Michael Keatings Captains prize day 2 and as usual it was worthy of the occasion. Right up to the very end the result was in doubt and the 18th hole proved decisive and the Beecher's Brook for many of the contenders. Eventually when the dust settled weel after 8 o'clock, the winner was declared and John Donegan managed to come from the pack and grab the spoils, well done John.

The day itself went to plan for the Keating family, fabulous weather (for a change), the drama of captains day and the ladies once again served up a feast for the battle weary troops, the odd shoulder to cry on also!!! Well done to Michael and Margo on the brilliant array of prizes and all the work they put into the big day. Well done to all the winners and commiserations to the not so lucky, roll on next year... A huge thanks also to the Lakeside Manor for their hospitality and the tremendous spread laid on for the presentation, thanks to Maeve and her staff.

Ramor Juniors; Ramor juniors got off to a flying start in their Junior Championship campaign beating Castlerahen on a score line of  4-11 to 1-8. First half goals from Barry Balfe and a brace from club minor Dylan Gaynor ensured that Castlerahen were never in with any real chance. Ramor dominated throughout the field over the hour with panel featuring over half a dozen minors. A thoroughly enjoyable performance (for the Ramor supporters) was spoiled somewhat by injuries to strong players like Ray Cole, Mark Hetherton and Barry Balfe, all of whom had been performing well.

Ramor Seniors; Ramor seniors ended their losing run in the senior league beating Castlerahen at home on Wednesday 15th August  on a score line of 11 points to 8.

Cavan Juniors/Seniors;

Well done and congratulations to Ramor man Damien Barkey  for an excellent performance against Kildare in the Leinster Junior Championship final on Wednesday night last. Cavan secured a well-deserved 7 point victory in what was a highly entertaining affair.

Another Presidents Prize has come and done but yet again it was a day full of all things good in golf, fun, good laughs, tales of woe, plenty of food and drama right up to the last putt. Eventually the day long leader hung on to jersey and Peadar Gill was the very deserving winner, proving all his critics wrong, apparently he's been taking a lot of stick lately since his son was flying the family flag on the golf course, so a strike back for the "older" generation, well done Peadar. The day itself went off very well despite the best attempts of the weather to spoil the party, scores were unusually high but the course stood up to the test of the 27 holes, between it and the presidents evil pin positions breaking a few hearts along the way. A huge thanks to the lakeside manor for their support and hospitality, a great night was had by all. Well done to Seamus O'Meara on a great day and a credit to the man was the way it all went off so well and the support of the full club during his day, congrats to himself and Teresa on the array of prizes.

Despite a brief resurgence from the home side Ramor consistently held the lead throughout the second half and a Simon Cadden rocket to the net in the 20th minute put daylight between the sides.

The final day of the Chestnut Tree sponsored Spring League took place on Sunday March 25th and the result could not have been closer. With 2 teams starting level at the top of standings it was always going to be a tight affair and so it ended up.

Eventually Ger McKenna's team were declared the winners, Vivian Connell's troops having to settle for 2nd place.

Since Virginia Tidy Towns regrouped in 2008 we have become aware of many positive and some negative aspects of the town. Many residents have voiced these concerns to committee members in their efforts to make improvements. We feel that the time is right to get a general overview of residents of what is required to maintain and improve the town after the future. This meeting is an opportunity for you as a resident or a business person. Whether you've lived here all your life or recently taken up residence to voice your opinions about the Town. Next year 2012 Virginia will be celebrating its 400th centenary, so all opinions as to where and how improvements can be made would be greatly appreciated.

This year's Pumpkin Festival promises to be another success for young and old. There will be lots of things to do over the four day bank holiday weekend. The formal programme will be available soon but for now, here are some of the events:

As expected, the 2nd day of Captain Ray Foley's prize was a great day, full of tension, drama, excitement on the course and as usual the ladies treated the battle wiery golfers to fine food and the odd word of encouragement, well done to all at Virginia golf club especially Ray and his family for an excellent day. After all the drama and dust settling the winner emerged as Seamus Sheridan who, like everyone else, he thought he'd blown it but hung on by a thread to claim his 1st captains prize, well done Seamus.

Family Fun Day;

Ramor Utd Social Committee organized a Family Fun day last Sunday. It was a wonderful day, and everyone had a great time. There were lots of games, U-8's played Maghera, U-10's played Cuchulainns and the Lurgan U-14 girls played Castlerahan. Thanks to the visiting teams for coming and giving us great entertainment. Lots of events took place, such as an obstacle course race, egg and spoon, sack race, fathers and mothers race, wheelbarrow races and lots more. The Bouncing Castles were hugely popular with the younger children. The tug of war provided a great laugh indeed, we won't mention which team lost.....twice! There was target shooting skills , ball and bucket game, skittles competitions, and a Ducking Chair which drew great laughs from everyone. Lots of our Senior players and committee members were very brave to take the plunge...literally! Thanks to the Bruisers and Jennifer Brady's Irish dancers who provided great entertainment all afternoon. The ladies did a wonderful job face-painting, and there were a lot of happy children running about. Of course, no day is complete without food, and P.J, Brian and Damien were on hand to satisfy everyone with their delicious burgers and hot-dogs. The ladies provided delicious bun, cakes and treats , sincere thanks to all who baked for the occasion. We had a very efficiently run sweet shop too, and trade was very brisk all afternoon!! Martin Tynan was MC for the afternoon, and he did a wonderful job as usual in his humorous manner! Thanks Martin, and no, I won't mention that Barry Balfe won the Father's race and Mary Brady won the Mother's race!! A large screen was erected to watch the Dublin/Donegal game, and all seats were filled in the clubhouse for that! There are too many people to thank individually, but you know who you are, and a sincere thanks to all of you for all your hard work and efforts. It certainly paid off on Sunday, and hopefully we'll have another fun day next year. It was a great day out for all the family, and thanks to everyone who came along.

Ramor Senior Team;

Ramor suffered a crushing defeat in the Senior Championship in Breffni Park on Sunday evening. Despite being level with Cavan Gaels five minutes into the second half, the Cavan town side ran out easy winners on a full time score of 1-11 to 0-08. In truth, Ramor never really got going, and credit  to Cavan Gaels on a decisive win. Hopefully, Ramor will regroup and return to playing well, we do have the players and the talent. Thankfully, we are not in a relegation situation and are in a safe position in the League.

Official Opening of New Sports Facilities

The official opening of the new club sports facilities will take place on the weekend of Aug 12th & 13th.

Ramor Senior Team;

Ramor had an emphatic win over Lacken in the second round of the Senior Championship on Sunday evening last in Breffni Park on a score-line of 2-19 to 0-07. It was a dull pedestrian game, and in truth the gap should have been wider as Ramor fluffed a number of goal chances. Nevertheless, they now face the hefty challenge of Cavan Gaels, who themselves suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Ballinagh. Ramor will need to win or draw the game in order to remain in the Championship. Let's hope they can up the ante and make the necessary improvements, and advance from the group stages.

Best of luck to Lady President Kay Lynch on her big day on Thursday, best of luck to everyone playing, reminder to men that 9 hole comp thurs evening, draw at 6.30pm.

Boy and girls cup on this sat, best of luck to all.

Senior Championship Round 1;

Ramor met Ballinagh on Saturday evening last in Crosskeys to contest the opening round of the Cavan Senior Championship. It was a typical Championship encounter and did not disappoint the large crowd gathered. Having heard of Cavan Gael's annihilation of Lacken the previous evening, both sides knew they had to win and a mighty battle ensued, with ten yellow cards issued throughout, albeit some undeserved. Philip Fitzsimons and Jack Brady scored a point each, just before a penalty was awarded to Ballinagh in the 7th minute, and Niall Mc Dermott pushed his side one ahead. Keith Soden(2), Paul Quealy and Adrian Cole completed Ramor's scoring for the first half. Ballinagh's scores comprised of 2 goals for Niall Mc Dermott, (one a penalty) and three frees from the boot of Thomas Moore. Half time score 0-6 to 2-3.

Ramor Utd V Drumlane, A.C.F.L.

Ramor hosted Drumlane in Virginia on Saturday evening and picked up the points from both the Senior and Reserve games.

The Senior game was a very one sided affair with Ramor running out easy winners on a score-line of 1-18 to 3-3. In the first half Ramor dominated and notched up 10 points to their opponents single point. The second half was similar with Ramor firing over several unanswered scores and they were 1-17 to 1-3 up with five minutes remaining. Drumlane got two consolation goals in the dying minutes of the game.

The Juniors played very well and won what was described as an epic battle! The final score was 3-09 to 1-14.

Sunday May 15th was a singles stroke competition for the Tom McGurk Perpetual trophy and the young guns took this one by storm, Adrian King winning on countback from Sean Brady both with nett 59.

Next Sunday is the May Monthly Medal, category prizes and GOY points up for grabs. There is an addition to the GOY this year, the best Gross over the GOY comps will also be awarded along with the GOY trophy and 2nd place, see noticeboard for details.

Hard luck to the lads and lassies who played in the Irish Mixed foursomes qualifier in Nuremore last Sunday, narrowly missing out on qualification in the clubs first venture into that competition.

A meeting is taking place in the Muntercoannught GFC clubrooms this Wednesday, May 18th at 9 pm - everyone with an interest in local history and heritage is welcome.

Ramor Utd V Cuchulainns; A.C.F.L.

Ramor Utd came away with the points with a victory over neighbours Cuchulainns in Edwin Carolan Park Mullagh on Sunday last. The final score was 2-8 to 1-8. Ramor, with wind advantage, notched up 0-8 in the first half to their opponents single point.  A dream start for Ramor in the second half saw them net two goals, giving them an eleven point lead by the 7th minute. They would not score again in the game, but had done enough early on to combat the  1-07 which Cuchulainns subsequently scored. It was the proverbial game of two halves, Ramor dominating the first half, and the hosts dominating the second.

U-21 All Ireland Final 2011.

Hard luck to the Cavan U-21's who suffered a defeat by a strong Galway team at Croke Park on Sunday last. However, it must be remembered they are Ulster Champions and deserve much praise and credit for an excellent campaign. It has been an incredible journey over the past few weeks, and the entire county have enjoyed the thrills and excitement . Ramor Utd are very proud of Damien Barkey and Jack Brady who both played exceptionally well throughout. Sadly for Damien this is his last year as an U-21 player as he turns 21 in a few weeks. Jack has another two years as he is only 18 now, and Simon has another year. Thanks again to the team and management for providing us all with a much needed lift, and no doubt Cavan's future is bright!

Two late points from Ballyhaise brought the gap back to four. Next Sunday, it's a home game against Belturbet at 3.30pm.

The Juniors didn't fare any better, despite a brave challenge, and they lost on a score-line of 1-6 to 1-13. Their next game, against Belturbet is in Virginia on Sunday (3rd) at 2pm. Please come out and support the teams.

The second half was intense with both teams notching up some fine scores, with Ramor ahead for most of the half, despite a goal being disallowed. A couple of frees put Ballyhaise one point ahead, but Ramor equalized in the last few minutes of play to earn a draw.

Ramor U-16's took part in this Tournament at the weekend, playing a total of seven games over two days on the 3G pitch at Kingspan Breffni Park. On Saturday they played, and beat Cornafean, Denn and Lacken. Sunday morning's first game was a defeat to Laragh, but subsequent games against Cavan Gaels and St Finbarrs earned victories. A semi-final pairing with Cavan Gaels unfortunately saw a brave Ramor side bow out of the competition. Cavan Gaels ultimately lost out to Bailieboro in the final.

Unfortunately the weather won out again last Sunday so the 1st round of the Chestnut Tree sponsored Spring League will take place next Sunday Feb 13th, there is a new timesheet in operation.

Trip to Athlone;

Sincere thanks to the Social Committee for organizing a wonderful weekend away to The Sheraton Hotel in Athlone last weekend. Ogie, Margo, Ann, Mary M and Pauline worked very hard to make sure a great time was had by all. Indeed the trip was the brainchild of our chairman Ogie Farrelly, and it also coincided with a very significant birthday of his good friend Ray Cole!! A delicious "Ramor" cake and a personalized jersey were presented to the birthday boy, after dinner on Saturday night. There was  a session of "Mastermind" then as the most clever of our crew won fantastic prizes- Bernie Lynch is particularly delighted with the socks! Stephen Monaghan, who unfortunately is moving across the Irish sea, had a lovely new suitcase presented to him!

Spring League will commence on Thursday 29th January.

Schools Finals;

Congratulations to Virginia College on reaching the Co. Finals at U-14, U-16 and Senior level. The U-14's easily disposed of Bailieboro, winning well on Tuesday evening. Ramor were very well represented on the team, with Eoin Somerville as a very worthy captain also. The Seniors battled  well and gave a good account of themselves, but two Cootehill goals early on made it difficult, and despite having most of the play of the second half they lost by two points. The U-16's played their final on Thursday night, but were well beaten by Cootehill. Well done to all involved with the teams, and in particular all the young Ramor players.

Cavan Senior Championship Quarter-Final;

Ramor met Lacken on Saturday evening last in Kingspan Breffni Park to contest a semi-final spot in the Cavan Senior Championship. At half time Ramor looked to be in serious arrears on a score-line of 1-1 to 0-7. However, a very much improved second half performance netted a total of 7 points, the first six of which were unanswered. Lacken rallied briefly scoring a trio, but this was not to be enough as a final point for Ramor earned them  the game by the narrowest of margins. Final score; Ramor 1-8, Lacken 0-10.  Well done Ramor.

Another Captains Day has come and gone, another day of drama, suspense, excitement, joy and disappointment!!! The 2nd day of Pat Murphy's captain prize took place on Sunday last and as usual it provided everything that makes Virginia golf Clubs Captains day special, great fun and craic in the clubhouse all day with the ladies serving up the usual treats for the battle weary troops, and the lads didn't disappoint on the course either with some very good scores and lots of drama right to the very end.

Senior Team News;

Ramor played Lavey in their third game of the Championship in Kingscourt on Friday night last. It was an entertaining game and was competitive even though Lavey were out of the Championship. Ramor dominated most of the game and went in at half time four points up. The second half saw a brief rally by Lavey and they narrowed the gap to two at one stage, but Ramor upped their game and went on to win comfortably on a score-line of 2-12 to 1-8.  Well done to all.

Ramor have been drawn against Lacken in the quarter-final of the Championship; date and venue to be confirmed.

Senior Team News;

Ramor played Cavan Gaels in their second game of the Championship series in Lavey on Sunday last, and they drew the game, and in truth, Ramor were dominant throughout and will be disappointed that they didn't get the win. They defended staunchly and moved the ball in clinical fashion, snuffing out any threat from the Gaels full forward line. Ramor  started the brighter of the two, notching up two points in the first few minutes, before Cavan Gaels replied with a couple of Sean Johnston frees. Both sides were eager and battled hard, Ramor conceding a number of frees and the Gaels shooting a number of wides. Ramor were a point down at half time, having missed a couple of goal opportunities, on score-line of 0-6 to 0-7.

Congratulations to all the children from the Lurgan Area who participated in a hectic but successful weekend for Lurgan Community Games at the end of June which saw two teams(U-13 Girls Basketball & U-16 Boys Pitch & Putt) winning Ulster titles, and they now go forward to the national finals in Athlone in August.  The following day two more children qualified for the national finals in individual events by winning gold at the county athletics finals - Áine Corcoran(U-10 Girls 200m), and Oliver Lotscher(U-16 Boys 7km).

Sunday last was Peter Callaghan's Presients Prize and well done to all involved for making it a great day, a huge thanks to Peter, Marie, Conor and Lucy for a very enjoyable and fun day for all, the weather tried to spoil the day but only served to make it a bigger challenge to the golfers with scoring more difficult, a fitting tribute to Mr Virginia Golf Club!!

Team News;

The Ramor seniors drew with Lacken on Thursday night last in Virginia on a score-line of 2-14 each. Ramor enjoyed an eight point lead at half time, after a great first half performance by the team, notching up 2-9 to Lacken's 1-4. In the second half Ramor took their eye off the ball, literally, and allowed Lacken back into the game , and theyscored eight points without reply. It was Philip Fitzsimons' fisted point in injury time that saved the day for Ramor and clawed a draw. Hopefully they will pick up some badly needed points in the next couple of games.

INTRODUCTION:  The emphasis in this programme is very much on health and well-being.  It has been shown that relatively small changes in lifestyle can help us to feel better and increase our energy levels and can even benefit those at risk of developing diseases such as diabetes.  Over the course of the programme in O'DONOGHUES PHARMACY we will focus on diet and exercise, suggesting small changes to bring about a slow, steady weight-loss which can be maintained in the long-term.

U-21's;

Congratulations to the Ramor -Munterconnaught U-21 Team on winning the Division 1 Championship for the second year in a row. It is a remarkable achievement. Well done to all involved.

There was widespread outrage at the announcement that National Irish Bank are closing the only Bank in Virginia.  A Bank has operated from that building for over 100 years.  They propose to transfer the Virginia accounts to Navan.  The proposed closure if implemented would have devastating effect on the town and surrounding areas, as the ATM machine is also being removed.  How can a growing town the size of Virginia operate without a Bank?

U-21 Championship;

Ramor-Munterconnaught marched on in the U-21 Championship on Sunday last when they disposed of Cavan Gaels on a score-line of 2-6 to 0-6.

The game was played in Crosskeys in dreadful weather and underfoot conditions, yet the play was very lively and entertaining for the large crowd that braved the elements to watch last years finalists in action.

The Christmas prizes continued this week with the first singles competition, and again despite the heavy conditions some great scores were brought in.

Among the highlights we have some wonderful theatre with two Frank McGuinness plays both directed by Padraic McIntyre There Came a Gypsy Riding and Observe the Sons of Ulster.

Seniors;

Ramor had a two point victory over neighbours Cuchulainns on Sunday last in the relegation play off. The game, played in slippy conditions, failed to excite, and was quite a dogged affair with several yellow cards issued. Ramor led by a single point at half time, and managed to stay on top for most of the second half, despite a brief resurgence by Cuchulainns. Thankfully, they held on to win on a scoreline of 1-9 to 1-7.

There are no games fixed for the coming weekend.

Congratulations to everyone involved with the Lurgan Area U-13 Girls Basketball team and the athletes from the area who represented Cavan and Ulster at the Community Games National Finals so well last weekend in Athlone.

 

Senior Team;

Ramor played Castlerahan in extremely wet and slippy conditions on Sunday last in Fay Park, Ballyjamesduff. The last time these sides met was in the Championship and Ramor never really got going, handing Casterahan an easy win.

It was all to play for on Friday evening last in Lavey as Ramor took on Gowna in their third game of the championship campaign. Ramor opened their account with a Jack Brady free after a foul on Adrian Cole in the opening seconds of the game. A minute later, Gowna's Willie Stephens converted one for his side. Drama ensued in the 3rd minute as Niall Madden won the kick-out,laid the ball off to Raymond Keogh who passed it on to the inrushing Ciaran Fitzpatrick and he crashed the ball to the back of the Ramor net.

Senior Championship;

Ramor lost out to Castlerahan in the opening game of the Championship on Saturday last in Breffni Park. While Castlerahan started off well, Ramor came into the game, despite numerous wides, and there was but a point separating the sides at half time. The second half was another matter, with Castlerahan piling on the pressure and Ramor struggling to cope. The final score was 1-16 to 0-8. Luckily, Ramor will have another chance in the competition, when they will play Gowna. Hopefully, a lot of the injury worries will have cleared up and the team will have a chance to regroup and improve for the next day!

Ramor Utd 3-15, St. Finbarrs 0-9.

The much anticipated semi-final meeting of these sides took place eventually after inclement weather forced a post-ponement and a change of venue. Friday evening last in windy conditions in Virginia, the two teams served up a great hours entertainment before a very large gathering. It was largely Ramor's evening as they dominated for long spells, but the threat from St. Finbarrs only dissipated in the second half.

RESULTS

Junior League: Round 5 - Ballinagh 3-5 to Maghera 2-4. Maghera Mac Finns quest for League points continued at Páirc Mac Finn on Sunday with the visit of a very strong Ballinagh side. Mac Finns withstood concerted early pressure to go into the break 3 points to the good, contributed in the main by 2 well taken goals which proved decisive. This was a good performance by Maghera against a Ballinagh side containing several senior grade players but their points tally will need to increase if further wins are to be attained.

RIP

On Monday 6th April '09, we lost Tommy Murtagh of Fartha following a recent turn of ill health. Tommy was an avid supporter of Maghera Mac Finns for many years, seldom missing a match and indeed was Vice President for a time. Tommy was involved in keeping his beloved Maghera Mac Finns going at a time when there seemed to be little hope for the club.  He will be sadly missed not only by his family, friends and the club, but also by the many people he visited with his Travelling shop over the years. A popular man amongst young and old, he was wise, ageless and was relied upon by many for his sound intelligent advice. His funeral on Tues/Wed, with a Maghera Mac Finns Guard of Honour was held in St Matthews Church and graveyard, Maghera.

 

Cavan A.C.F.L.;  Ramor Utd. 1-14. Cúchulainns 0-9.

Ramor entertained Cuchulainns on Saturday evening last in front of a large crowd. This was a local derby that neither side wanted to lose, and perhaps Ramor were out to avenge last years defeat in the Championship. Cuchulainns , on the other hand were badly in need of points to try to climb up the League table after a disappointing start.

The hosts led from the start and the writing was on the wall at half time with Ramor having a score of 1-8 to Cuchulainns 0-3.

Ramor piled on the pressure in the second half and ran out easy winners on a score-line of 1-14 to 0-9.

Cavan A.C.F.L. Round 4, Ramor V Crosserlough.

Ramor continued their League Campaign on a positive note with a hard fought victory over Crosserlough on Saturday evening last in Virginia in front of a very large crowd on a scoreline of 2-8 to 1-6. It was not the prettiest of games, with both sides being guilty of squandering gilt-edged chances. Ramor led at half-time by 2-3 to 0-3 after playing against the wind. The Buckley-Mackin management team led their charges to an eventual five point victory  over Crosserlough who were out for their first game under new manager Sean Lynch.
