Carmel and Dave on stage in the Country Ballroom

A wonderful night of dancing is in prospect at the County Ballroom in the Tulsk Inn on Saturday night.

  Two of the most popular artists who play at the venue, Carmel McLoughlin and Dave Lawlor, will play almost four hours of super music, providing dancers with a spectacular night of enjoyment.

  Doors will open at 9.30 pm. Admission on this night €10, with free draw for some valuable prizes.

  The owners of the Country Ballroom, Pat and Selina Galvin, and promoter Eugene Murphy are now planning their third anniversary night in the coming weeks.

  It is hoped to carry out a major draw on the night in support of Pieta House, who aims to prevent suicide and self-harm.

  The details of this draw have still to be worked out with Pieta House representatives in Co. Roscommon.

  The owners and promoter are thrilled to be making arrangements for their third anniversary and look forward to inviting all of their friends to join them for a special celebration.




St Dominic’s and Kilbride can advance to IFC last four

Hodson Bay Hotel IFC Quarter-Final Previews

St Dominic’s v Michael Glavey’s on Saturday at 7 pm in Kilbride

Glavey’s have lit up the intermediate championship with a series of superb displays. With Darren and Shane O’Malley, Caoileann Fitzmaurice and the prolific Andrew Glennon in top form they will certainly give St Dominic’s plenty to think about.

However Michael Finneran, Ollie Milton, Conor Fallon, Ultan Kelly and Mark Miley are seasoned championship campaigners and I give the Knockcroghery men a hesitant vote to advance to the semi-finals. People Sport Prediction: St Dominic’s.

Fuerty v Kilbride on Sunday at Knockcroghery at 11.30 am

A couple of months ago I would have opted for Fuerty to win this match. The sides met last year, with Fuerty coming out on top, but Kilbride are improving with every game in this championship.

Seamie O’Neill is back in the fold and playing well and with Conor Devaney, Henry Walsh and Tom O’Grady posing a considerable scoring threat, Kilbride are now credible contenders for the title.

Fuerty will be hoping that the Bannons, Fran Hanlon, Gearoid Ennis and Niall Kilroy can weave their magic one more time – but Kilbride look the better bet. People Sport Prediction: Kilbride.

Relegation Play-off: St Barry’s v St Ronan’s on Sunday in Tarmonbarry at 1 pm

Ronan’s are like the cat with nine lives as they have been involved in so many of these battles over the years. They may just have run out of road though as Barry’s look to have slightly the better side – and if David Keenan is fit he could lead them to safety here. People Sport Prediction: St Barry’s.

Intermediate semi-finals this weekend

The Roscommon Ladies senior, intermediate and junior club championships, which started out on July 4th, have reached the penultimate stages.

While the senior and junior semi-finals are scheduled for Saturday 19th September, the Castlerea Vehicle Recycling sponsored intermediate championship semi-finals take centrestage this weekend.

Table-toppers Shannon Gaels take on fourth-placed Kilglass Gaels in Kilbride, while second-placed St. Ciaran’s take on third-placed Western Gaels (venue to be decided). Both games have a throw-in time of 6 pm.

Table-toppers Shannon Gaels (junior champions in 2013) have made a huge impact in this year’s championship, winning five from five, scoring a whopping 22-66 while conceding 9-22 during the group stages.

Second-placed St. Ciaran’s, junior champions in 2014, carried their good form into 2015 and won three out of their five games. St. Ciaran’s scored 13-59 while conceding 13-40 in their campaign to date.

Third-placed Western Gaels, intermediate county finalists in 2014, also won three out of their five games, losing out to Shannon Gaels and St. Ciaran’s, scoring 16-43 while conceding 17-56 overall. Fourth-placed Kilglass Gaels, relegated from the senior championship in 2014, won two and lost three of their group games.

They had to play Boyle (who also won two and lost three of their games) in a play-of, a game they won by a single point, 1-7 to 1-6. Kilglass scored 10-66 and conceded 16-48 in their five group games.

Shannon Gaels v Kilglass Gaels at Kilbride (6 pm)

Shannon Gaels have a wealth of talent in their ranks. These teams met in the group stages of the championship in Croghan on Saturday week last. Kilglass put it up to Shannon Gaels for the first half, but the Croghan ladies moved up a gear in the second half and ran out 5-12 to 2-11 winners. While Shannon Gaels will be hot favourites to advance here, the experience of playing senior championship over the last number of years could stand to Kilglass and they certainly will not go down without a fight.

Prediction: Shannon Gaels.

St. Ciaran’s v Western Gaels at Oran (6 pm)

St. Ciaran’s, Junior County, Connacht champions and All-Ireland runners-up in 2014, have brought their form into the 2015 intermediate championship.

Western Gaels however are seasoned campaigners at this level, county finalists in 2012 and 2014 and semi-finalists in 2013 and they will be looking at this as an opportunity to reach another final.

Those two teams met in the group stages of the championship in early July; St. Ciaran’s had two points to spare on that occasion after an epic battle. The experience of playing senior league and intermediate championship over the last number of years will stand to Western Gaels.

St. Ciaran’s however will look to their experience of playing in Connacht Junior Championship and the All-Ireland Junior final last year to help them get over the line. Don’t rule out extra-time here.

* U-13 & U-15 Development commences on Saturday 5th September at Roscommon ladies pitch, Strokestown at 10 am. If you can help please contact Martin Murphy on 083-3484447.
