Bray vs Clann na Gael Fontenoy

We travelled over to Ringsend last Sunday morning to Clann na Gael Fontenoy to complete busy schedule having played Lucan Sarsfield on Wednesday night. We started well, Liam Kenny must have put the “fear of God” in the full back as he had 2.1 on the board in the blink of an eye, Paddy Lee added two points and Padge Doyle one more and we were looking very good to collect the two points on offer. Clanna Gaol eventually got scores on the board with a couple of good points and in fairness to them they settled into the game as the half went on. Our lads were in excellent form with Willie Keane, Eoin McCormack and Philip Collins dominating around the mid-field and half forward line pilling on the scores. Willie Keane had to leave the field with a head injury and was replaced by Michael Walsh. We lead at half time 2.10 to 1.5 and playing some lovely hurling throwing the ball around very nicely, Mikey fired over a couple of points and a long range free from Lukie ended in the back of the net and we looked home and hosed at this stage. Peter Walsh was back after his appendix operation and came on for Padge midway through the second half. A short time later Paddy rattled the net and Kenny another and super sub Peter Kieley fired 1.1 in the last ten minutes after replacing Paddy. There will be tougher days ahead but non the less 6.21 to 3.9 was some tally in any game, Conor Doherty and Liam Benville can’t get enough hurling at the moment, and Seanie Maloney back to his best at corner back, Conor McNally came in for Peter O’Reilly in the goal and did well. Next Saturday is the big day, the final of the Leinster league v Naomh Eoin of Carlow in Abbottstown centre of excellence at 5 o clock, don’t miss that one.
