Shannonbridge GAA Notes
by Conor Killeen
Bridge Pull through
Shannonbridge survived a late scare when Pullaugh grabbed a late goal in Doon on Saturday last but the bridge held out for their first Championship win in two years.
In the first half Erin Rovers had some goal Chances with young Sonny Lynam doing alot of damage and creating goal chances one of which came crashing off the cross bar.
Shannonbridge then got a very lucky goal when John Ryan hit in a high ball on top of the goal and luckily for the Bridge it fell in across the line.
On the day Shannonbridge made a number of positional switches from the previous Saturday and Eamon Mahon was rewarded with a great performance from David Corbett. The young 18 year old won almost every ball played in to him.
Richie Browne and Jason Kelly were also very prominent on the forty between them knocking over some great scores.
Offaly tickets on Sale
Offaly GAA have issued tickets to all clubs in Offaly for the re-development of O'Connor park. There are a number of Cars as prizes on offer. Tickets are €100.
I would hope that the Co. board have made provisions to build a restaurant on the grounds that would provide hot food during half time or between games.
At the moment in O'Connor Park the only thing on offer is rip off price chocolate and cans of Coke.
This would be a very good source of regular income for the County board and if properly run should maybe there will have to no more raffles needed.
