Monagea GAA over the last 12 months have been working on developing a website which will host all content for the club and act as a resource for up to date fixtures, league tables and match reports for both the senior and juvenile grades. While content has been gathered from our current social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter), Weekly Observer Notes and the previous Monagea GAA webpage, much content is missing throughout the years.
If you have any content relevant to the club, be it photos (old or new, digital or paper), match write-ups or anything else that is appropriate please contact us.
While I have tried to be as precise as possible while developing this website, I will without a doubt have made errors. If you notice errors on any of the pages please do contact the club through the contact page or through the Facebook page, and I will endeavour to correct them as soon as possible.
Running a Club Website:
Running a club website and making sure everything is up to date is a difficult task, however having a number of contributors will significantly reduce the burden on everyone. If you are a member of the club who often attends games, takes pictures or have an interest in website maintenance and you would like to be involved then please do contact us through this website or the Facebook page, as a team is currently being put in place for the 2018 season.
After topping their group in the West A Football Championship, with two wins against St. Kierans and Shannon Gaels, our U21’s as part of Clan na Gael now look forward to a semi-final against Athea/Mountcollins.
Semi-Final takes place this Saturday (11th November) at 3pm in Tournafulla. All support for the lads is greatly appreciated!
Trojan work by the U13 young men today with a total of 70 mins of football. All square at full time, all square after extra time so another 10mins was played. It finished 1.11 to 3.9. Hard luck to Bellville. Monagea/Knockaderry meet Oola in the County Final, details TBC.
Our u13s finished up the hurling season today. Unfortunately they lost by a single point in the county final against Dromin/Athlacca/Banogue side. Our opponents took full advantage of the wind and took their scores, that coupled with our lads not settling very well saw us trailing by 5 points to no score at half time even though we were in hard luck for a goal. Monagea/Knockaderry not done yet came out much better in the 2nd half. The boys upped the pace, it paid off, a single point is all Dromin/Athlacca/Banogue managed to score. Monagea/Knockaderry finished off the last 10mins well on top a couple of points and a goal saw us down a single point with minutes to go. Unfortunately the damage was done in the first half. Another 2 mins on the clock might have sealed a victory for us but today was not our day. Congratulations to Dromin/Athlacca/Banogue. Well done to our own boys, we’re very proud of ye. No rest, football group final tomorrow at 12noon in Monagea.
Our U12s under the guidance of Tom O’Connor and Connie Broderick finished off their season in style this evening. In the football group stages they lost to Granagh/Ballingarry, won against Rathkeale and lost to Knockaderry. In their football final they beat both Castletown/Ballyagran and Rathkeale. The hurling season saw a group stage which included a walkover vs Rathkeale, followed by 2 wins against Knockaderry and Feohanagh/Castlemahon. The finals tonight resulted in two wins over Ballybricken/Bohermore and Doon. This u12 team have improved so much as the season progressed, they’re a hard working bunch of players. Credit and thanks due to Tom and Connie for training them. Thanks also to the parents who have given great support all year. The future is bright. 💚💛💚💛
Congratulations to Kevin Hogan who won the top prize of €10,000 in the August Limerick development draw. The draw was very kind to West Limerick, with the top four prizes coming westwards. The Development draw which is organised by the county board, has been running for nearly thirty years and is a good source of revenue for all clubs that promote it. There are ten draws each year with a top prize of €10,000 and numerous other prizes totalling €21,000 each month. If you are interested in joining, please contact a member of the Monagea club.
Well done to both Conor Murphy and Jack Kiely who were with the Limerick under 15 B hurlers in their recent tournament in Clare. Conor managed the team and Jack played across the half forward line. They had three games against Cork, Kerry and Waterford. Results on the day did not run for them but winning is not the only measure.
Carrauntoohil done and dusted by a group from Monagea GAA. Thanks to everyone who climbed and to everyone who supported the event.
Our last game in the league section of the championship against Templeglantine was played last Sunday night in Tour. We had already qualified for the quarter finals and the automatic semi-final spot was between ourselves and Tour, as we both entered our last game equal on points.
We elected to play against the fresh breeze in the first half and started reasonably well, winning ball in most areas of the field. Scoring opportunities were limited for both sides as the backs dominated the proceedings. Templeglantine got the first scores but Jason got us back on level terms. It was score for score over the next fifteen minutes and then we had a let off as a shot from a Templeglantine forward hit the post and went wide. Shortly afterwards we got our first goal courtesy of a ground shot from Noel. The half time score was Monagea 1-6 Templeglantine 0-6.
The second half started at a slow pace and we added a point to our score. Then Templeglantine struck for their goal with a good overhead pull. For the next ten minutes the game was evenly poised but we gradually increased our lead to three points. With ten minutes to go, Shane got the vital second goal and we held this advantage until the finish.
The final score was Monagea 2-13 Templeglantine 1-11. With Tour winning their game against Adare by twenty-nine points, they finished on a slightly better scoring difference than us and took the automatic semi-final spot. We now play Feenagh on the weekend of the 12th August.
