Prominent for Creggs on the day up front were Aindriu Oaters, Michael McAteer, Aidan Hoare and Ciaran Purcell while DJ Hession at 10 played a very good link role between forwards and backs. Meanwhile Aodhan Looby, Senen Lambe and Daniel Crehan played well out wide.

Connacht Under-17 League:

Creggs RFC  32,   Sligo RFC 14.

Creggs Under-17’s had a very impressive opening day  Connacht League victory over Sligo RFC in Creggs last Sunday morning, coming out on top in a 32 – 14 victory.

Played in windy but dry conditions this was an excellent game of rugby with both sides trying to run the ball at every opportunity. Sligo played with the wind in the first half and scored early converted try. Creggs settled soon after and used their off loading game to break the strong Sligo defence with Tom Farrell, Thomas O’Brien, John McDonnell and Eric O Doherty were prominent up front early on.

Creggs replied to the early Sligo score with two tries before half time through Jack Keegan and Rory Callaghan, both of which were converted by Mark Purcell. Both tries had been set up through good interplay between forward and backs and Aodha Hession was doing well linking the play.

Leading 14-7 at half time Creggs used the wind to pin their opponents back early in the second half and they scored a penalty through Mark Purcell to strectch the lead to 17-7.

Sligo responded well breaking from their own 22 and ran the pitch, touched-down and converted it to reduce the deficit to 17-14 after 15 minutes.

Creggs needed to score next and a long range penalty from Purcell after 19 minutes gave them a 6 point lead with 16 minutes remaining. Creggs then scored 2 very good tries through Aaron Hannon, one after 22 minutes  when good work by Rory Callaghan, Jack Tucker, Rhoddie McGuinness, Ben Finnerty and John McDonnell made good ground and when Creggs got near the line Hession and Purcell used quick hands to release Hannon in the corner.

With only 4 minutes remaining Creggs sealed the victory when Aaron Hannon broke straight through the cover to score under the posts after very good work from Lorcan Maher and Tom Farrell which was converted, leaving the final score 32-14.

Athleague Camogie Club are delighted to announce our new
“A Hurl For Every Girl Campaign” Supported by Local Farmers & Industry.
Athleague Camogie Club has gone from strength to strength in the recent past with successes from underage to Senior County titles. With the support of our main sponsor Ward and Burke Construction coming on board in 2018, this has certainly supported and helped progress the promotion of our game in the Athleague Camogie catchment area.
Being part of any team, especially camogie and allied sports like GAA & Rugby, builds a good work ethic, collaboration, cooperation and learning to be part of a team. Team membership also builds resilience in players when learning to deal with success as well as failure. All these skills are crucial qualities for young people moving forward into the professional working world.
In the catchment area for Athleague Camogie Club there are 161 girls attending national school in the Creggs, Fuerty, Athleague and Ballymurray schools. We are lucky to have a great relationship with other clubs within our area, and as we don’t have our own pitch, these clubs kindly facilitate us with use of their grounds, namely Athleague Pitch, Tremane Pitch, Mulhern Park and Creggs RFC. Camogie is a minority sport in the parish. However, camogie is a noble Gaelic sport which enhances skills of resilience and courage. Those who participate as part of a team contribute positively in the workplace.
A new initiative has been launched by the club’s main sponsor Ward and Burke Construction to supply each of these primary school girls with a hurl and sliotar. Other local businesses have come on board to support this initiative including Aurivo, Kepak and Local Dairy Farmers. Senior club members will deliver the hurls and sliotars to the younger players during the next few weeks with further information on how to join our club.
For the past 4 years Michael Ward of Ward & Burke Construction has been the main sponsor for our club. His support and advice have allowed us to undertake initiatives like this “Hurl For Every Girl” campaign. A strong believer in gender equality, his company actively recruits, promotes, and encourages women to see past old stereotypes and realise their true potential in a predominantly male employment sector of construction. Michael, a former formidable sportsman himself truly believes in how invaluable playing a team sport is for young people, and for young girls in particular. Along with building character and resilience, it gives focus and direction at times in life when it is needed most, lifelong friendships are forged, and opportunities are opened up.

Aurivo are global leaders in food and dairy nutrition, bringing clean, green products from sustainable Irish farms to the world market. They offer fantastic career opportunities and are always looking for strong, enthusiastic, and ambitious people to join their teams. Having a sports background gives girls an edge on their competition in the career marketplace, as they understand teamwork, commitment, hard work and ambition
Kepak work with over 15,000 Quality Assured beef, lamb, and pork producers nationwide. We are extremely lucky to have a Kepak facility in our catchment area that is committed to supporting employment in Athleague and further afield. They also support local initiatives and sports teams in a loyal and practical way. Kepak too are always looking to recruit enthusiastic people to join their company, indeed many of their senior management have worked their way up the career ladder by training and working in all sectors of the business from operations and sales to procurement and product development.
These companies offer graduate programmes, and this is where Athleague Camogie Club comes in…… We want to encourage girls to look to these companies as career options, to promote rural Ireland and our community. We want them to see the bigger picture, these jobs are not just for males, young women’s potential within these organisations is limitless.
Our Local Dairy Farmers have joined us on this initiative to help promote rural jobs, to encourage girls to see farming as a real and viable option for them and to encourage growth and sustainability of the family farm. As we are a rural community it is vital for our survival and prosperity that young women can stay in their local area if they wish to, and that they are supported in their endeavours to promote women in farming as a career option. Keeping our community vibrant helps everyone not just our sports clubs.
