Roscommon do the Double
Congratulations to our club representatives Cian McKeon, Donie and Enda Smith, and all involved with the Roscommon team that won Division Two of the Allianz Football League following a victory over Galway on Sunday. All three were central to the victory with Cian scoring 0-02 and as well as captaining the side, Donie helping himself to 0-05. Enda was named on the Team of the League on the Sunday Game, and the stats from the league campaign tally to the following: Cian, 1.14 – 1 mark; Donie, 1.29 – 17 frees and Enda, 3.08 – 1 penalty bringing our Division 2 winners haul to 4 in 8 years.
Congratulations are also in order for all involved with the Roscommon Intermediate LGFA team, especially our dynamic duo, Roísín & Saoirse Wynne! They overcame Wexford in the Division 3 Final in the Lidl Ladies National League which gifts them a promotion into Division 2 next year.
