Our under 14 Boys gave a spirited and skilful performance in their division 2 league game against Kilglass Gaels / St Barry's on Thursday last in Ardcarne Park. Both sides produced scores of the highest quality in a very entertaining and competitive contest which was only decided in the final few minutes in favour of the visitors.

Our Minors played our neighbours  Boyle in the Division 3 League on Friday last. This was a very entertaining game played between two fully committed sides. After both sides traded points in the first half, Boyle scored a goal on the stroke of half time to leave them ahead 1-6 to 0-4. St Michael's started the second half well and scored a fine goal through Fiachra Henry. Both teams continued to score good points and St Michael's went ahead by a point as the intensity of the game increased. However, a couple of points by the visitors left them ahead at the end on a full time score of 1-11 to 1-8. This was a great team effort by all the lads which just came up short and on another day the scoreline may have been different. Team: M.Reynolds, J.Doherty O Brien, R.Gillespie, B.O Dowd, J.Harte (0-1) D.Regan (0-1), S.Blackwell (0-1), N.Sheerin (0-2) A.Tiernan, F.Henry (1-3) A.McGlynn, A.Chilton, M.Heslin.

St Michael's GAA Dinner Dance


St Michaels GAA Dinner Dance.
Well what can I say to describe the night of the dinner dance. At a time when we are all busy and caught up in work, family and a plethora of other distractions so that often the most we might see each other is leaning over the fence or hiding from the rain in the stand watching one of our teams play a match, it was a joy to catch up with so many players, past and present, neighbours and friends who, as the photos show, turned out in force to help us celebrate St Michaels winning teams 25th and 40th anniversaries respectively. It was a night filled with laughter and memories, old friendships and new and a bit of friendly banter that showed that St Michaels really is at the heart of our parish.
It didn’t just happen by accident and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the organising committee of Eddie Heslin, Anthony Dowd, Seamus Sweeney, Shane McGlynn, Geraldine McMorrow, Marie Heslin, Michael McGonigle and Niamh Sheerin. We would like to thank our special guests for joining us on the night, Shane Curran, Seamus and Myra Mullaney and Ian and Catherine Cooney. We want to thank Joe Dolan and his wonderful staff who made the night so enjoyable, no request was too much for them, Cakes by me for the lovely cupcakes, a sure talking point, Moonstone Jewellers for the fabulous presentations. Dave Byrne who played and ensured we all had sore feet the next morning and the hilarious Tierney Talks who ensured we all had sore sides the next morning.
We would also like to thank our sponsors whose support greatly enhanced the night. Moonstones Jewellery, Carmel’s skincare and beauty, Joe Simons, King & Moffit, Anthony & Angela Dowd, Pat Heslin, Ardcarne Garden Center, Beirnes of Battlebridge, The Cottage Restaurant and Joan & Pat Tiernan.
Most of all we would like to thank all who came out and supported the event, it was a massive success due to the people who came and laughed and danced the night away. Here is to continued success at St Michaels on and off the field and many laughs together in the future.

2018 is a significant year for St. Michael's GAA Club. We have a double celebration marking both the 40th and 25th anniversaries, respectively, of our club winning the Roscommon Junior Championship Finals of 1978 and 1993. We are commemorating both these milestones in our history in a special way with a celebratory function in the Bush Hotel, Carrick on Shannon on Saturday 31st March.  St. Michael's has grown in strength in recent years with much needed new and improved facilities in Ardcarne Park which continue to assist in developing and promoting our games for girls and boys in the future. Our social night on the 31st March is an ideal opportunity for all our community to renew old acquaintances and meet new members of our community who are always welcome in St. Michael's.  Any winning silverware in the parish should be fondly remembered as we honour these two winning teams of the past and the individuals involved for their dedication and commitment to our club both on and off the field.
Special guests on the night along with a surprise guest of TV fame will guarantee a night NOT to be missed. Your presence and support would be appreciated.  Tickets available from local public outlets and club officers (Price €40 includes 4 course meal and dancing till late!) Thank you
