Moycullen lose out to cup champions

Thu, Dec 05, 2019

In a rematch of a league game a fortnight ago, Moycullen’s Super League side was hoping for a repeat result when taking on Griffith College Templeogue on Saturday. However, this game, a cup quarter-final, was a decidedly different affair.

Two weeks ago in the familiar surrounding of the NUI Galway Kingfisher, Moycullen had ground out an impressive win, mostly as a result of some solid defensive play, but this past Saturday Templeogue flipped the script, progressing to the cup semi-final by 95 - 82.

Thu, Nov 14, 2019

Moycullen will be hoping to put last weekend's 71-68 loss behind them when they welcome Templeogue to the NUI Galway Kingfisher at 7.30pm on Saturday.

The Super League side were left kicking themselves for failing to secure a home victory against C&S Neptune at the weekend. It was a loss made all the more bitter given that Moycullen led right up until the final two minutes of the game, and had held a 16-point lead midway through the third quarter.

Having won their seventh county title in a row, and also defeating the mighty Carnacon for the second year in succession, Kilkerrin Clonberne will face Roscommon’s Kilbride in the Connacht Senior Ladies' Football Championsip final at St Croan’s GAA (2pm).

Kilkerrin Clonberne manager Kevin Reidy will hope Olivia Divilly can continue her form, having sandwiched a quick trip to Australia for trials in between two sublime performances in the county final and Connacht semi-final. However, it has been an all-round team performance that has made the Galway championship their own in the last number of years, and Kilkerrin/Clonberne will be hoping to continue their push for an All-Ireland medal, having been beaten by the Cork champions in 2018.

Moycullen needs to secure home win when Lions visit

Thu, Oct 24, 2019

Moycullen are back at home this weekend hoping to get their Super League basketball season back on track when they welcome bottom-of-the-table Dublin Lions to the NUI Galway Kingfisher Gym for a 3pm clash on Monday afternoon.

It has been a difficult start for the Moycullen men, who last weekend travelled to Belfast looking to return to winning way. Frustratingly, though, the game played out as an almost carbon copy of their previous performance, and despite a great effort defensively, an unbalanced offence meant Moycullen had to chase for most of the game, losing to Belfast Star by 76-68.
