Defeat For Inchigeela NS   13/11/2013

On Wednesday last, 13/11/13, Inchigeela NS were unfortunately defeated by a strong Rusheen NS team on a scoreline of 5-05 to 1-03 in the final of the Sciath na Scol football competition at Páirc Uí Rinn.
On what was a great occasion and day out for everyone involved with the school, it was alas not to be, for the young footballers who battled gamely to the very end despite being up against a very strong and talented Rusheen NS team. A great goal by the ever-impressive Seán O'Riordan along with three points from Daniel O'Donovan(2) and Seán O'Riordan(1) were not enough to claim the spoils in what was a high quality contest despite the difficult winter conditions.

Everyone can take great heart despite the defeat, however. This has been a great year for everyone involved with the team who came through some very tough battles on their way to the final, playing some excellent football on the way. They have done themselves, their school and families very proud. The Iveleary members of the panel will have a chance to make up for this defeat when they play the Under 12 football final later in the year. The experience of playing in Páirc Uí Rinn will no doubt stand to these young players for future battles.

There was a strong support for the team on the day & the team were greeted after the game by Bishop Buckley, a native of Inchigeela. Everyone at the club would like to congratulate everyone involved with the team on the achievement of getting to the final & hope it's the first of many more to come.
