Rockcorry Notes

October 27th, 2015

Aidan Quigley R.I.P

It is with great regret and sadness that we learned of the death of former County Board Chairman Aidan Quigley who sadly passed away last week.  A native of the Currin GAA club Aidan had great witt and was a great character and always enjoyed the craic. He had a unique talent for speaking and always took the common-sense approach particularly when it involved the so called ‘smaller’ clubs. He was a passionate GAA man and his contribution to Monaghan GAA will always be remembered. On behalf of the Rockcorry GAA club I extend my heartfelt condolences to the Quigley family during this sad time. May his gentle soul rest in peace. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam

Eurotech Junior Football League

I imagine you will be in full agreement with me that being on the side-line while watching the lads play is not easy! With all the thrills & spills, the ups and downs and all the twists they really do generate a lot of drama. Take last Sunday’s spellbinding semi-final encounter against Sean McDermott’s in the Eurotech Junior Football League campaign, I probably experienced every single human emotion possible under the sun…fear, anxiety, scared, anticipation and joy are just a few. At times it was very difficult to watch but my God the lads showed some bottle against a very determined Sean McDermott’s side to secure a victory on a final score-line Rockcorry 3-14 Sean McDermott’s 3-13 to progress to the Dr. Ward Cup Final. This was always going to be a tricky battle as there is never much between these sides. When Sean McDermott’s got back on level terms they had us on the ropes and showed up a few problems that will need to be sorted out and worked on before the final. However, when the pressure was on the lads reacted brilliantly and displayed great character and during the closing stages of this highly exciting & enthralling game they stepped up to the plate and showed the hallmarks of “Junior Football Champions” as they finished strongly to seal a fully deserved victory.

Ulster Club Championship Quarter Final

Wow, it’s all go at the moment, I haven’t had time to catch my breath! This Sunday 1st November our focus now switches back to the club championship. I suppose in a way we’re stepping into the unknown as we take part in the Ulster Club Championship Quarter Final when we travel to Brewster Park, Enniskillen to play Coa O’Dwyer’s (Fermanagh) at 2.30pm. Coa O’Dwyer’s have the advantage of already having a game under their belt when they defeated the Armagh champions, Tullysaran and will no doubt provide a tough and challenging test. It promises to be another exciting encounter so come on everybody get behind the team and get those green jerseys on, get those green & white flags out and make the trip to Brewster Park and show your support for the team in this massive game. Good luck lads, do the best you can and leave everything out on the pitch, empty the tank as they say and have no regrets. If you do that then hopefully that will be good enough come Sunday evening. Good Luck Lads.

Scoil Mhuire Visit

A fortnight ago our senior footballers secured the clubs second ever championship title when they won the Packie Boylan Cup. It always a great occasion to celebrate a championship title and on Wednesday (21st October) team captain Niall McKeown along with Mark Thornton and Colin Quinn took time out from their busy schedule to visit the local primary school, Scoil Mhuire, to share their success. They certainly received a warm welcome from the kids and they took the time to pose for photographs with the Packie Boylan Cup and signed autographs. I understand the last ten minutes or so were quite nervy for the lads as the kids asked them some sticky questions but you don’t win championship titles without having some backbone and the lads were able to show nerves of steel to answer the questions in a very diplomatic manner! On behalf of the club I would like to thank Donal Quigley and all the teachers at Scoil Mhuire for facilitating the visit and allowing the kids to wear their club clubs.  Good stuff lads and well-done everyone and a selection of photographs can be viewed on our Facebook page.

Deepest Sympathy

On behalf of the club I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the Clerkin family on the recent passing of their mother Kathleen Clerkin. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this sad time and may her gentle soul rest in peace.
