20th May

We played Tang last Saturday night in the Div 1 league. A win would see us one step closer to a Senior Division 1 league final for the first time since 1996. Our lads deservedly ran winners in the end, after a game very much of two halves. We started very strong dominating the opening exchanges, with scores from Ben Cox, David Tone, Davey Malynn & Darragh Healy. Tang responded with a few scores from frees, as we headed into half time. The second half saw Tang starting the brightest , despite being down at half time , they rallied in the second half. Our lads never panicked and our senior players in particular stood up when it mattered. Enda Boland was outstanding at centre forward winning a couple of important possessions, Davey Tone kicked a fantastic point from play , and Deccie Mullen slotted a huge free kick from outside the 45 with five minutes to go. Tang pushed and pushed but they couldn’t break through to get the equalizing score. Referee Damien Maher sounded the full time whistle, and with that we ran out two point winners on a score line of 2.14 to Tang’s 1.15. Well done lads on a great win. We wish Tang the best of luck for the rest of the year in there intermediate championship campaign, and also thank referee Damien Maher and his umpires for officiating.

Gaa: We headed to The Downs last Fri night to take on the home side in the ACFL Div 1. The lads were undefeated to date with four wins and a draw, so they were keen to build on this. It was a wet and bitterly cold night, but the lads kept our traveling support in good spirits with a fine team performance in tricky conditions. Playing into a very stiff breeze in the first half, we were working the ball very well and creating some good scoring chances. Two points from Sean Pettit from frees kept us in the game , and we got a vital score just on the stroke of half time when a series of hand passes led to Enda Boland bearing down on goal, and with that he rifled the ball to the net, to give us the lead at half time 1.04 to 0.04. We began to get into our groove in the opening ten minutes of the second half, and took control of the game. Andy McCormack was playing a captains role leading by example in the full back line along side Cathal Daly.  Theo Watts and Deccie Mullen we’re starting to dominate in midfield, and the ever hard working Enda Boland and Plunkett Maxwell were outstanding in the half forward line. Points from Sean Pettit, David Tone, and a fantastic side line kick from Deccie Mullen sealed the win on a score of 1.14 to The Downs 0.09.

It was another busy weekend in league action. On Saturday last we travelled to Ballinagore to take on the home side in the Div 4 league. A win would see us pushed up the standings in the table , and we got the perfect start. David Fox was on fire , shoring very well in the forward line , and he kicked some excellent points in the first half taking the game to Ballinagore. As the half wore on both sides traded points , Damien Boland drove up the field from corner back to kick a fine point off his left foot. As half time approached, Ballinagore got the final point of the half to leave them one point up at half time. Ballinagore started the brightest in the second half , but our lads slowly got a foothold in the game with Paidi Keenan , Matty Farrell, Ciaran Maxwell & Liam O’Neill getting on a lot of ball around the middle. Ballinagore struck for a goal and with ten minutes to go we were two points down. The bench was emptied by the management, with Peter Elliffe, Lorcan Daly, Cathal Daly , Ben Cox & Damien Carroll entering the fray. From here on in, we took over the last ten minutes. Scores from David Fox , & Cathal Daly got us back level , with Lorcan Daly stepping up to kick the winning point to give us the win by 1.13 to Ballinagore’s 1.12. Well done lads.  ACFL Div 1: We welcomed Tyrellspass to the park on a wet and cold morning last Sunday. Our lads were hoping to keep there good run going in the league going. We started slowly with playing conditions very tough and with Tyrellspass setting up ultra defensive  , we were finding it difficult to break our way through. Eventually the scores started to come with good scores from Sean Pettit and Boidu Sayeh. A fortitudes goal by lorcan Daly got us back in the game and as both sides headed for the dressing rooms at half time, we were two points up. Playing with the breeze in the second half our lads took over the game, driving forward at every chance with Plunkett Maxwell, Theo Watts, Declan Mullen, Enda Boland , Boidu Sayeh, Damien Carroll & Padraig Nestor picking up a lot of ball in attacking positions from midfield. Points by Sean Pettit , Ben Cox, Lorcan Daly, David Fox and a Sean Pettit goal sealed the win for us on a score of: Rosemount 2.13, Tyrellspass 2.03. Well done lads on a great win. We would like to thank Niall Ward and his umpires for officiating the game , and we wish a speedy recovery to the Tyrellspass player who suffered an injury in the second half. Also, a sincere thanks to all those who donated kindly to our collection for the Lee Wallace fundraiser. In total €1,430 by raised by both clubs at the gate, a fantastic achievement.

8th April 2019

We took on Tyrellspass last Friday night in the ACFL Div 4. The game was played under lights in the fabulous facilities of Athlone I.T. Both teams traded points early on, and what was an evenly contested opening half both sides went into half time level on a score of 1.02 to 0.05. The second half was very much a tetchy affair at times with both teams playing on the edge for. A fine score from Liam O’Neill got us in front , with ten minutes to go , only for Tyrellspass to strike for a goal after a well worked move. As we headed into the last five mins , a free from David Fox left the bare minimum in it. The lads really dig deep as the game entered injury time, and with that David Malynn stepped up to kick the equalizing point. We still had our chances to win it , but in the end a draw was probably a fair result. Final score Rosemount 1.09, Tyrellspass 1.09. Well done lads.

Fixtures: ACFL Div 4 vs Ballinagore this Saturday evening, April 13th at 5pm in Ballinagore. ACFL Div 1 vs Tyrellspass this Sunday morning, April 14th at 11.30am in Rosemount. All support appreciated.

Gaa: Lakepoint Park was the place to be last Friday night as we travelled to take on St Lomans in the latest round in the Div 1 ACFL. Having taken maximum points from there opening three games our lads were keen to continue there good run in the league. Whilst playing St Lomans is never an easy task , we travelled in high spirits. A slow start to the game allowed St Lomans to take the initiative, and they quickly got the scoreboard moving with some fine passing and support play. We eventually got on the scoreboard with a point by Sean Pettit, which was quickly followed by another score from a free. At half time we went in three points down with a huge turnaround to follow in the second half. The lads started to up the anti in the second half , points by Ben Cox, Sean Pettit and David Tone got us back in the game. A goal after a mistake by the St Lomans goal keeper handed us a lifeline as we began to exert our influence on the game. As we approached injury time, we were still one point down and chasing the equalizing score. Andy McCormack broke out of defense and drove forward. A long ball in from Shane Tone, was gathered by Plunkett Maxwell who laid it off to Ben Cox who had the final say in the match to tie up the game with time up. With that , the final whistle went and a point was gained. While the lads would have been disappointed with there first half display , the second half was very much a different showing, with great effort and fight been shown all over the field, and every ball being contested aggressively by the lads. They kept going right to the bitter end, and got the reward for there efforts. Final score was Rosemount 1.09, St Lomans 0.12.
Fixture: ACFL Div 4 vs Tyrellspass this Friday night the 5th of April at 8pm. The game will be played under lights in Athlone I.T. All support appreciated.

Like last weekend both our Div 1 and Div 4 teams were out in action in the leagues. On Friday night last we travelled to Moate to take on the home side in round 2 of the ACFL Div 4. On what turned out to be a wet and very windy night, it made playing conditions very difficult. To be fair both both teams served up an entertaining contest for the supporters who braved the elements. A quick start by our lads got us into a two point lead with a fine long range score from Ben Cox the pick of them . Moate played against the wind in the opening half and gradually began to get them selves into the game . An even first half concluded with both sides level 0.05 0.05 each. Both teams up the anti in the second half , trading score after score . Two fine scores from Lorcan Daly paved the way for a right finish . In the end Moate took there chances when they came heading down the home straight and held on for the win by one point 0.10 to 0.09.

On Sunday morning last years intermediate champions Shandonagh came to the park for round 2 of the ACFL Div 1. Again the weather caused havoc with snow appearing before kick off , but this did not deter our lads in the slightest and they put in an exceptional 60 minutes performance. Some quick fire points by David Tone, Sean Pettit, Theo Watts, and a fortuitous goal saw us take a commanding lead and we never looked back from there on in. We went in at half time 7 points up , and with the wind at our backs we killed the game off in the second half. Further points by Sean Pettit and a well finished goal by Ben Cox sealed the win. Final score Rosemount 2.12 to Shandonagh’s 0.05.

Div 1. On what was a wet and windy night we managed to grind out a fine performance to take the win and collect two points. Points by Ben Cox and a Davey Malynn goal got us moving in the first half, and we continued to tag over points as the game went on. A fine individual point from play by David Tone left us five points in the lead . Sean Pettit then tagged on a fine point from play and another from a free to give us the win on a score of 2.07 to 0.06. Last Sunday we welcomed St Paul’s to the park for round 1 of the ACFL Div 4. Like the Athlone game playing conditi ons were very difficult , with wind, rain and snow even falling before the full time whistle was blown. We started the game strong and the result was never in doubt from there on in. Some good points from Lorcan Daly, Ben Cox and David Fox got us off to the perfect start, with all three showing up very well in the forward line. Cathal Byrne and Liam O’Neill were solid in the back line while Paidi Keenan and Davey Malynn manned the midfield. In the end we ran out winners on a score line of 1.09 to 0.07. Well done lads on two good wins over the weekend.
