Oct 3, 2015 - U12: PJ Treacy Memorial Tournament

The curtain came down on the Under 12 season at a fiercely competitive PJ Treacy Memorial Tournament in Garrison on Saturday where Belcoo U12’s made it to the final before they suffered a narrow 3points defeat to Tyrone side, Beragh Red Knights.


The O’Rahilly’s were greeted with a nice message on their dressing room door from the hosts Devenish congratulating them on their Division 2 success before they were clapped onto to the field by Erne Gaels and Devenish, while they joined the line to clap out defending champion of this competition Beragh. 

Games were 11 a side, 10minutes each way with the normal two touch rule and two points for a goal.

GAME 1: Belcoo 3-3 (9) v 0-3 (3) Erne Gaels

Belcoo were sharp in their opening contest against Erne Gaels which seen all 21 players used and they all made great contributions. In the early minutes Josh Killilea broke through to tap over the first point before an super move seen Killilea add another, Jamie Ray’s kickout was superbly fielded by Patrick Martin who turned and played a great ball into Conor McKeown who was showing well, McKeown offloaded to the on-rushing Killilea to split the posts.

McKeown would score a goal from close range while Jack Greene thumped in another after being put through. Aoife Keaney was brilliant at the back for Belcoo in this contest and although Erne Gaels mustered a response in the second half adding three points, Belcoo would continue to dominate. Killilea added his third point before Cian White’s crossfield ball was cleverly fisted to the net by Sean Boylan.

Lorcan Leonard would make a good save having replaced Jamie Ray in goals while Cara Gray, Ben McNulty and Sam Martin made telling contributions in defence when introduced. The Barrett sisters were lively linking play between defence and attack as Belcoo held out for a 6point win.

GAME 2: Belcoo 1-2 (4) v 1-4 (6) Beragh Red Knights

The second outing was played with alot more intensity against a strong Tyrone outfit, Belcoo though would dominate the first half but squandered good opportunities in front of goal. Patrick Martin hit a point within seconds of the throw in before he forced a smart save from the Beragh goalkeeper moments later. Other chances came and went with efforts shaving the post, Beragh were clinical and hit a point from their first real attack to leave it lone point each at half time.

The second half was fiercely contested, some great tackles and blocks from the O’Rahilly’s, Ciana McGrath and Colum Higgins doing well at the back with Oisin O’Loughlin and Dara Flanagan putting in a big shifts around the middle. Up front Josh Killilea was a threat with Eoin Corrigan putting himself about against physically stronger opponents.

Beragh would land two good points from distance before they got a soft goal, a handling error at the back, gifting them a goal. Belcoo’s response was immediate, a quickly taken kick out from Jamie Ray found Josh Killilea who worked the ball through the hands with Dara Flanagan before Killilea danced round the ‘keeper to score a goal. He would add a point but Beragh responded. Belcoo almost snatched a late draw when Cian White side stepped his marker and fired goalwards, the Beragh keeper though made a wonderful save as his side held on to win by 2points.

GAME 3: Belcoo 1-8 (10) v 0-2 (2) Devenish

Belcoo needed to win this game to make the final against Beragh and they did so, quite convincing. The previous loss spurred them on and they produced some excellent football during the 20minutes to run out handsome winners. Gerry Nolan was superb in this contest and ignited the Belcoo challenge with a quickfire 1-2. Patrick Martin and Killilea also added points in this period.

Defensively Niamh McAloon and Aoife Keaney were giving up nothing as Devenish failed to make inroads going forward. Belcoo would continue to control the tie with Josh Killilea adding three more points and Dara Flanagan popped up with one also. Again, the majority of the squad got game time and all done very well.

GAME 4: THE PJ TREACY MEMORIAL FINAL: Belcoo 0-4 (4) v 1-5 (7) Beragh Red Knights

This was another tough tussle. Belcoo never stopped working, pressing, hassling, tackling in the final and were very unlucky to come out the wrong side of the result. There was some fantastic displays, Aine Barrett excellent throughout while Conor McKeown excelled in what was a really physical affair. Oisin O’Loughlin remained a driving force in the middle with Dara Flanagan and Josh Killilea came in for some treatment from the Tyrone men, hauled down when running through on a number of occasions which frustrated all concerned.

Killilea would hit three of the four points while Dara Flanagan was also on target. Beragh though got themselves ahead and done everything they could to ensure Belcoo weren’t going to deny them from retaining the title they won 12months earlier.

All in all it has been a very positive season for our U12’s who gave everything throughout the year, worked tremendously hard and should be proud of their efforts and achievements.

Sep 20, 2015 - Three Late Goals See U16's Snatch Draw

U16 Division 3 League: Belcoo 6-4 v 5-7 Irvinestown

Belcoo U16 showed great battling qualities to come from 9 points down with 5minutes remaining to snatch a draw from their home game against Irvinestown on Sunday morning. Played in difficult conditions the game ebbed and flowed with Belcoo very wasteful in the first half and Irvinestown dominating much of the second half. Belcoo though would fire in three late goals to salvage a point in what is an extremely tight and competitive division. 

U16 Division 3 League Table

    P W D L Pts
Irvinestown St Molaises 3 1 1 1 3
Belcoo O`Rahilly's 3 1 1 1 3
Tempo Maguires 2 1 0 1 2
Devenish St Mary's 2 1 0 1 2

Irvinestown were first to register a point before Ciaran Flanagan kicked a good point for the O'Rahilly’s and Michael McGourty sent a crossfield ball into the square from the wing which seen the Irvinestown full back put into his own goals having been pressurised by Shane Doherty. Irvinestown responded with a goal themselves on 8minutes and a point soon followed before Belcoo struck for their second goal, a brilliantly taken effort from 25 yards by Conor McAloon.

Ciaran Flanagan and Conor McAloon clipped over two good scores to leave Belcoo four points to the good but over the closing 10minutes of the half Irvinestown took control and registered the final three points of the half to leave Belcoo holding a narrow one point lead at the interval, Belcoo 2-3 (9) v 1-5 (8) Irvinestown.

Belcoo started the second half by conceding several turnovers and the visitors were to hit two purple patches in the second half to move them into a commanding lead. An early 2-1 sent Irvinestown six clear, Eoin Shiels scored a good long range point for Belcoo before Shane Doherty netted on 45minutes to bring the score 3-6 to 3-4 in Irvinestown’s favour.

The visitors would rattle in another quickfire 2-1 to push nine points clear.

It looked ominous for Belcoo but Ciaran Flanagan turned over the ball on the 45 and made a great run before side-footing past the Irvinestown keeper. Belcoo were applying extreme pressure now as they rallied and in the last minute Dermot Burns came up from half-back to slide the ball to the net before an injury time Conor Mc Aloon strike rescue the game.

There were good performances right through the team with Oran McCann was very solid in goals and James McAloon and Eoin Shiels deserve a mention for the leadership shown in the closing stages of the game to encourage the last ditch effort from the whole team. The referee made comment after the game that it was refreshing to hear how the whole Belcoo team encouraged each other throughout.

Team: Oran McCann, Lawrence McKeown, James McAloon, Dermot Burns (1-0), Ronan Maguire, Mark Ferguson, Eoin Shiels (0-1), Gerard Mc Hugh , Matthew Mulvey, Ciaran Flanagan (1-2), Michael McGourty (1-0), Shane Doherty (1-0), Conor McAloon (2-01). Sub Used: Fiachra McAloon.

Sep 19, 2015 - U12s Win Division 2 League

U12 Division 2 League: Belcoo 3-11 (17) v 3-4 (10) Teemore

Belcoo U12s would crown a great season with a hard working display in the Division 2 League Final against Teemore as they secured the title on a 3-11 to 3-4 scoreline. A profitable third quarter the catalyst for the victory in what was another tough battle against the Shamrocks.


Back Row (L-R) Conor McKeown, Cian White, Ben McNulty, Oisin O'Loughlin, Patrick Martin, Dara Flanagan, Colum Higgins, Aoife Keaney, Aine Barrett, Ciana McGrath, Niamh McAloon, Sam Martin, Daniel O'Connor.

Front Row (L-R) Jack Greene, Eoin Corrigan, Josk Killilea, Emmett McGuinness, Gerry Nolan, Jamie Ray, Eimear Magee, Sinead Barrett, Cara Gray, Sean Boylan, Lorcan Leonard.

Belcoo got off to a flyer with Josh Killilea netting a goal during the first attack of the contest before Dara Flanagan quickly followed up with a point from play. The game was evenly balanced during the remainder of the quarter as both defences on show were impressing.

The O’Rahilly’s captain Oisin O’Loughlin was marshalling the defence well, coming out with possession on several occasions while Niamh McAloon excelled throughout, again making timely interventions and clearing the ball to teammates. Tigerish play from Colum Higgins and Ciana McGrath in the half back line continued to thwart Teemore who managed a sole point in Quarter 1, Jack McGann registering from a free kick but Belcoo took a three point cushion the first break when Dara Flanagan popped over his second point from play. Quarter 1: Belcoo 1-2 (4) v 0-1 Teemore.

Again, the second quarter was tight, Patrick Martin seen goalkeeper Callum McGrath make a good save early on before Conor McKeown pounced on a loose ball to fire in Belcoo’s second goal of the day. There was some great blocks in this spell, Oisin O’Loughlin, Colum Higgins and Emmett McGuinness all denying the opposition.

In the best move of the contest Belcoo broke forward at pace from defence, Josh Killilea and Emmet McGuinness played a number of one two’s through the hands before McGuinness unleashed an unstoppable drive into the bottom corner.

Teemore however responded well and fired in a quick 1-2. Liam McEnri hitting a well taken goal with Jack McGann clipping over two well taken scores to cut the deficit to three however Belcoo nearly netted another goal, Jack Greene doing fierce well to burst past a few challenges before bringing a good save from the Teemore stopper. His side though would land another score as Emmett McGuinness hit a point for Belcoo with the final act of the half. Quarter 2: Belcoo 3-3 (9) v 1-3 (5) Teemore.

Quarter 3 was where Belcoo opened up a gap and pushed on for the victory. Some sharp play, great workrate and well taken scores seen the O’Rahilly’s hit six points without reply in this period. Dara Flanagan and Josh Killilea on target early before Eoin Corrigan entered the fray and made another telling contribution, like he has done all season.

Corrigan would hit two frees, the second from long range with great confidence while Emmett McGuinness split the posts from well out the field also. Again defensively Belcoo were curtailing Teemore well, Jamie Ray sweeping up and organising well at the back with Niamh McAloon continuing to impress mopping up possession. Colum Higgins continued to battle for every ball and further forward Conor McKeown and Gerry Nolan were proving great outlets.

Josh Killilea would find the target as a great quarter for Belcoo seen them push ten clear. Quarter 3: Belcoo 3-9 (15) v 1-3 (5) Teemore.

Belcoo would keep Teemore at arms length in the final Quarter, again good work around the middle from McGuinness and Flanagan seen the O’Rahilly’s maintain possession. Aoife Keaney and Aine Barrett were battling well to gain possession following their introduction and it was Belcoo who added the first score of this period. Ciana McGrath with a great and offload to Eoin Corrigan who was bundled over for a free which he took and scored having dusted himself down.

Teemore made a late rally, another well taken goal was driven in with Jack McGann adding a free. Ben McNulty went in bravely for Belcoo and suffered a hefty knock while Gerry Nolan, Ciana McGrath and Emmett McGuinness made some excellent blocks during this period. Underterred the O’Rahilly’s drove forward with Killilea on target once more. Teemore though had the final says as they netted a third goal, Jamie Ray and Ciana McGrath got themselves in a muddle as the ball found it’s way into the net.

It wouldn’t matter though as Belcoo had done enough to get over the line on a 3-11 to 3-4 scoreline and in doing so secured the Division 2 League title with Oisin O’Loughlin collected from Deirdre Donnelly at full time.

The young O’Rahilly’s can be proud of themselves for the effort they have put into this campaign, everyone has featured at some conjunction and played a key part in this success season. Well done to management and coaches, Paul McGrath, Sharon McGrath, Aisling McAloon, Lucia Barrett and Phil Corrigan for their work throughout the year.

TEAM: Jamie Ray, Oisin O’Loughlin, Niamh McAloon, Ciana McGrath, Colum Higgins, Dara Flanagan (0-3), Emmett McGuinness (1-2), Gerry Nolan, Conor McKeown (1-0), Patrick Martin, Josh Killilea (1-3). Squad: Jack Greene, Eoin Corrigan (0-3), Aoife Keaney, Aine Barrett, Ben McNulty, Sean Boylan, Cian White, Sinead Barrett, Eimear Magee, Sam Martin, Lorcan Leonard, Cara Gray and Daniel O’Connor.

Sep 18, 2015 - Juniors Bow Out Of Championship

RESERVE B CHAMPIONSHIP: Maguiresbridge 1-11 v 1-9 Belcoo

It was a case of nearly but not quite as Belcoo Juniors exited the Championship at the Semi Final stage on a 1-11 to 1-9 score line at Lissan this evening. Maguiresbridge found themselves 8points up with 34minutes played before Belcoo rallied and really should have won the contest. Three fine saves from the 'Bridge goalkeeper including a penalty save and a string of wides during a dominant final flurry coupled with a poor opening half ultimately undone the O'Rahilly's. 

In the first half Maguiresbridge held the upper hand from an early stage as Stephen Brannigan broke through to set up Matthew Teague and he was fouled for a penalty with just four minutes on the clock. Barry Flanagan drilled high past Patrick Sweeney. 

Belcoo would hit two points in the first ten minutes, Aaron Dolan from a placed ball and Dean McDermott from play but it was Maguiresbridge who looked to have the more threatening attack. Five points in seven minutes hoisted them into a comfortable position while Patrick Sweeney denied a second goal with a smart save. Matthew Martin (2), Stephen Reihill, John Duffy and Emmett Rice all on target.

Over the closing stages the sides shared four points, Aaron Dolan with a fine point from wide on the right while Gary Maguire also found the target from that side of the field but it was Maguiresbridge who took a 1-7 to 0-4 lead into the break as Matthew Martin struck two more for his side. 

Stephen Brannigan and Sean Corrigan clipped over early points to extend the lead to eight after the restart before Belcoo began to mount a challenge. 

For 20minutes the O'Rahilly's didn't let Maguiresbridge back up be field. Gerard Mellor and Seamus Conlon would boss the middle sector as Belcoo began winning first and second phase possession from every kickout. 

A long range effort for point from Martin Corrigan dropped onto the crossbar which seen a scramble in sue and Kieran Conlon wheeled away celebrating a goal.  Matthew McAloon followed up with a point before the 'Bridge keeper Martin McCann took centre stage. 

James Stewart who was excellent in the second period robbed his man off possession and set Belcoo on the attack once more, the ball was worked downfield and a penalty awarded. Aaron Dolan's driven effort was beaten away by McCann and while Belcoo continued to apply pressure they went some 10minutes without a score before Gary Doherty fired over to make it 1-9 to 1-6. 

Maguiresbridge responded in a rare foray forward as Barry Flanagan tapped over yet Belcoo remained on top, a powerful run from Seamus Conlon seen him evade several challenges as he got within goal range, again the ‘keeper thwarted him with a fine save. 

Matthew McAloon pointed a free with 8 minutes remaining to make it a three point game again but it was time for the goalkeeper to make his third important save, this time denying Niall Cullen. Matthew McAloon and Seamus Conlon would hit points in the closing stages to leave one between the sides however the equaliser proved illusive and with the final attack Maguiresbridge added another for a two point success.  

The defeat ends the Season for the Juniors who finished 4th in the league and exited the Championship this evening at the Semi Final stage.

Team: Patrick Sweeney, Brendan McPartland, James Stewart, Martin Corrigan, Niall Cullen, Declan Leonard, Aidan McGrath, Gerard Mellor, Seamus Conlon (0-1), Gary Doherty (0-1), Aaron Dolan (0-2), Gary Maguire (0-1), Dean McDermott (0-1), Ian Corrigan, Kieran Conlon (1-0). Subs Used: Matthew McAloon (0-3), Ronan Meehan.
