Congratulations to our U14 ladies football team who had their second successive win of the year making it two wins from two.

Last Thursday our U14 ladies played Coláiste Chiaráin, Summerhill at home in the second round of the campaign. This was many of the player’s second game to play for RCC where they showed great team work and communication right from the first whistle.

The game started off with two well taken goals from Katelyn Shally and Andrea Fallon. The girls continued to show their talent and at half time had scored 3-06 with a total of 5 different scorers.

The skill and talent that was shown in the first half continued in the second half with a different five scorers getting on the team sheet by the end whistle. This included scores from Emily Carley, Nicole Underwood, Shauna McDermott, Orla Norris and Andrea Murray. Coláiste Chiaráin never gave up but with RCC’s backs feeding the forward line with well executed passes and the forwards accurate shooting the game was never in doubt. For a team that has only been training together since September it is a pleasure to watch the teamwork and accurate execution of the ball from this team. They never stopped fighting for every ball and the player in the best position is always the player to get the ball. This is portrayed with a total of ten different scorers on the day. Well done to all girls involved. They will play their next game at home against Boyle.

 

Front Row: Katelyn Shally, Mia Kilcline, Emily Carely, Heather O’Sullivan, Bridget Hoare, Nicole Marie Underwood, Jenny Connolly, Zara Doyle, Orla Norris, Shauna McDermott and Ciara Connolly.

 

Back Row: Sienna Snow, Eimear O’Connor, Aoibhinn MurrayAndrea Fallon, Mairéad Lohan, Erika Keegan, Hannagh Geraghty, Zara Doyle, Aisling King, Andrea Murray and Orla Dwyer.

Dunmore Community School had a keen start and were soon into an early lead in the game. Roscommon Community College had a spell of domination half way through of the opening half but couldn’t capitalise on the score board. This was compounded by a well worked goal by Dunmore just before the half time whistle which left RCC with a mountain to climb.

At the start of the second half, the home side came out of the blocks quickly with two quick fire goals from Ryan Conlon and Dara Finneran reducing the balance to six points and it was game on. The fight back was short lived as Dunmore reasserted their control with two quick goals of their won. Feidhlim O’Sullivan kept bringing the fight to the visiting team and scored 1-1 in the second half but in the end, the stronger Dunmore outfit comprehensively won out the day.

 

Team: Adam Donnelly, Enda Clogher, John Cunniffe, Ben Finnerty, Keelan Murray, Aaron Loyne, Matthew Ryan, James Mannion, Michael Staunton, Kyle Kelly, Dara Finneran, Feidhlim O’Sullivan, Liam Egan, Cormac Lavin, Ryan Conlon.

RCC Senior Ladies footballers were defeated by Abbey College Boyle. The RCC girls travelled to Boyle on Wednesday last the 9th of October in an attempt to make it two wins out of two. Unfortunately it was not their day as they faced a very strong Boyle team who were new to the group this year.

RCC struggled to get off to a good start and were under pressure with the strong accuracy of the Boyle forward line and the advantage of a strong breeze. Poor passing and decision making proved costly for RCC. However there were some displays of lovely interlinking play the whole way from backs through mid-field and into our forwards resulting in well-earned points from Siafra Finneran and Ellie Lohan.

 

The second half showed some improvement from the away side but Boyle were bullet proof in their defence. With Boyle having gained a substantial lead it proved difficult for the RCC girls to get back into the game. Having said this, the girls must be commended in the fact that they displayed a never give up attitude and continued to fight for every ball until the final whistle was blown. An impressive Boyle ran out winners of the match. Hard luck girls, next up we play Ballygar after the mid-term.

RCC took time to be ‘mindful’ of their mental health for World Mental Health Week including specific themes in their class work and day-to-day activities. Themes included: Connect with Others, Get Active, Be Mindful, Keep Learning and Give to Others. Times of meditation, reflection and laughter throughout the week were enjoyed by staff and students. 

 

Equally as uplifting was the performance by the cast of Grease at lunchtime on Thursday - World Mental Health Day - when they performed songs and dances from their hugely successful musical in the Arts Centre.
