Annual General Meeting

The AGM of Swinford Club was held on Sunday 19th in Gateway Hotel. Message of sympathy was given to all club members hwo lost a loved one during the year and to Padraig Carney on the passing of his wife Moira.

There was a decent turnout to look back at  the year. Reports were given by the club secretary Katie Kelly and club treasurer Deirdre Dunleavy. There was a defict in the club accounts due to the high cost of the works done on securing Robert McCallion Memorial Park after a landslide in 2016. The weekly 50/50 draw is the backbone of the clubs finances and other avenues of fundraising are needed.

Shane Campbell gave the Chairmans address. Thanks was given to all who help out in the club from the club officers to all the coaches from Under 6 to senior level. There are great numbers at underage levels upto Under 16 and the Cul Camp was very well attended. The commitment of the coaches and players throughout the club has been excellent. Thanks were given to our Intermediate and Junior managment of Tom Byrne, Billy McNicholas, Tommy Feeney and Michael Lenehan. Our Intermediate Championship status was retained and our league season is not yet over. Thanks were given to two people retiring in the club, to Jimmy McDonagh who has been working for the past few years on the pitch and clubhouse and who finished up on Friday 17th. Also to Douglas Kelly who is stepping down as PRO after four years. Thanks also to Pat Durkan and Terry Maughan for all their work on the pitch and on match days.

The meeting then moved to election of officers.  It was proposed that all club officers and executive be were relected and this was agreed to by the meeting. This included the departing PRO Douglas Kelly. If anyone is interested in a position within the club please contact a club officer.

The meeting then concluded.

Swinford Jersey Crest

Senior League Div 1C Bonniconlon v Swinford Match Report

Swinford_GAA_Crest

When the pressure was on the last few weeks this Swinford team stood up and were counted, every man that threw on the jersey, be they on the first fifteen or on the bench. When no-one was giving us a chance, including some of our own we travelled to Bonniconlon and got the win we needed.
Starting the day on 6 points and looking for results to go our way, we first off had to win our own game and that we did. We started the game very nervously and Bonniconlon opened the scoring with a point, before adding a 45. A pointed free from Jack McDonnell got us off the mark but the home team rattled off a free, another 45 and a point from play to take a 4 point lead. A free from Liam Moran kept us ticking over. Despite playing some good football we just could not breach the Bonniconlon defence. A score from play and a free gave Bonni a five point lead but we then found our rhythm and three points from Jack McDonnell, a Mark Forkan point and a free from Jack had us level just before the break. Bonniconlon got one just before the break to lead 0-8 to 0-7.
Jack McDonnell added another free shortly after the restart to levele the game for the second time. Bonniconlon then added three points to take a good lead. Kevin McShea pulled one back before Jack added what appeared to be a fine point but not given by any of the officials. Jack soon added another free followed by a free from Liam Moran as we brought it back to a point. Bonniconlon added their twelfth point. Mark Forkan leveled the game for the third time before Liam Moran put us ahead for the first time with ten minutes left. Then came a crucial moment in the game, a great save by Aaron Kinsella in the Swinford goal kept our lead intact and in the game. Bonniconlon leveled but with his third point of the game Mark Forkan put us back in the lead. There was one more throw of the dice for Bonniconlon with a 45 deep into injury time but thankfully it sailed to the left of the post and wide. A great win on a score of Bonniconlon 0-14 Swinford 0-13 at a ground that it is never easy to come away with the two points.
That win puts us on 8 points level with Bonniconlon, Louisburgh and Castlebar Mitchells. The Mitchells did not field a team a team against Shrule this morning and are relegated as a result and we defeated both Bonniconlon and Louisburgh over the season and surely stay up on the basis of head to head.
The forwards will get the credit (richly deserved) but our defence was outstanding today led by our keeper Aaron Kinsella with two great saves at crucial times during each half. Whatever happens in the coming days in the committee rooms of Mchale Park to decide our fate the team have been outstanding in the last few months, Everyone has given huge commitment over the season and with a bit of luck and fortune in some games would be pushing near the top of the division.

Swinford Aaron Kinsella, Aiden McLoughlin, Sean Brady, Alan McLoughlin, James Lavin, Mark Forkan, Joshua Smith, Johnny Burke, Michael Walsh, Michael Prendergast, James Sweeney, Liam Moran, Kevin McShea, Jack McDonnell, Darren Campbell Subs Kevin Barry, Jason McLoughlin, Tom Horkan, Conor Conway, Anto Friel, Mark McNicholas,

Scorers Jack McDonnell 0-7, Mark Forkan 0-3, Liam Moran 0-3, Kevin McShea 0-1
