Birthday Greetings to Ann

A very special birthday wish to Mrs. Anne Curtin who reached a milestone birthday last week.

No doubt, Anne is looking forward to the ease in travel restrictions when her family members who are abroad can visit Brosna to celebrate her birthday in person and in style.

GAA Round Up

The Brosna senior team travelled to the picturesque Churchill for Round 2 of the junior championship.

Getting off to a slow start, our boys saw Churchill take a five point lead before Brosna got its first point on the score board.

What followed was a game that saw the teams trade points and goals over the course of the match.  It was a gripping encounter whose result was emphatically decided in the final minutes by a Brosna penalty converted by Paul Walsh.

Brosna ended up the victors on a full time score of 2-16 to Churchill’s 1-11.

Brosna now progress to the next stage of the junior championship.

Well done!

A Note on Tickets

The GAA is still holding fast to its rules limiting the numbers of supporters permitted to attend games.

The scarcity of tickets has been disappointing for some of our wonderful followers who are denied the opportunity to travel to support their team.

Here’s hoping the GAA sees that wide open pitches are safe places for people to congregate in larger numbers than already permitted.

It was commented on by many on Sunday, that a greater number of supporters could have been on the sidelines in Churchill without undue risk.

Time for a rethink by the GAA, I’d say.

Condolences to O’Donoghue Family

We send our sympathies to the family of Tom O’Donoghue who passed away on 19 July. 

Tom, a native of Two Gneeves, was living in Cragg, Castlelisland. Our thoughts are with his wife and family, his sister, Maureen and brothers, Jerry and John.  RIP.
