Inane Rovers Gaelic Football Club Roscrea

Inane began their Junior A football campaign with an impressive win over Lorrha in Ballingarry on Tuesday last. Inane started the game in lively fashion and opened the scoring with a well taken point by Jason Fitzpatrick. Lorrha responded with a couple of well taken points by their talented full forward, before our lads got their rhythm back and dominated the rest of the half in which Brian O Lone netted the only goal of the game. Some fine points were added by Liam England and Alan Conlon in particular. However three excellent saves by goal keeper Jim McDonnell maintained Inane’s advantage at half time on a score line of Inane 1-6, Lorrha 2pts. The second half again saw Inane dominate proceedings with Aaron Ryan always a threat at full forward and who was very accurate from frees. Both the full and half back lines tightened up in the second half and worked well together as a unit. The final score was Inane Rovers 1-14, Lorrha 4pts. While it was a solid start to the championship a lot of work still needs to be done. Inane will play Borrisokane in the next round, time and date to be arranged. Team and scorers: J McDonnell, R Teehan, K McMahon, M Campion, P Breen, D Buckley (0-1), H Lupton, L England (0-2), J Carroll, J Fitzpatrick (0-3), B Brooks (0-1), A Conlon (0-1), B O Lone (1-0), A Ryan (0-4), C Phelan. Subs used: P Kirwan (0-2), R McNicholas, S Moloney, K O Shea, D Fletcher. Subs unused: R Ryan, J Bergin, C Neville, S Conlon, C Sheedy. In other news the club held its annual flag day in Bernie’s SuperValu Roscrea on Saturday last. The club would like to thank Bernie’s for their continuing support and all those who donated generously to Inane on the day. Inane would like to congratulate the Roscrea Junior B hurling team on reaching the North final and also like to wish the Roscrea Senior hurlers the best of luck against Loughmore-Castleiney in the next round.
