Drumconrath1-6 Bective 0-17
Drumconrath finished off their League campaign which had promised much on a disappointing note when going under to a more determined Bective side in this last round game which had no bearing on the business end top or bottom of the Division 3 Table.
Bective are shaping up for a decent season as after losing their 1st four League games have now gone 13 games undefeated as they prepare to defend the Tailteann Cup in the Final next Sunday.
Bective led 0-6 to 0-0 at the break as both sides hit 14 wides shared equally between them along with a couple of dropped short shots also.
Drumconrath did put up a better challenge in the second half scoring two points in as many minutes with Daniel Byrne and Conor OHalloran pointing. Gavin Finnegan did notch the only goal of the game on 40th minutes but really normal service was resumed as Bective made little of Drumconrath's defensive system pointing at will throughout the half.

This victory scuppers Drums chances of a League Final appearance and puts the all important 2nd spot between Dunderry, Carnaross and Meath Hill to join Ballinabrackey in Division 2 next year.
A good scoring burst which seen the home side hit 1-2 between the 20th and 27th minutes of the 1st half was vital and while Drums hit back with two points Dunderry held a 1-5 to 0-5 half time lead.
Terry Skelly was introduced at the break as Drums battled hard for a win and while they hit the 1st two points of the half Dunderry were able to keep the lead and indeed led by 4 with time running out.
A 2nd yellow card to a Dunderry player gave the visitors hope and they hit the last 3 scores of the game and while they had a late chance to level the shot fell short and time ran out as Dunderry hung on to secure a vital win.

Division 3 Round 9
Drums move to second in the table with hard earned win
Drumconrath 1-10 Longwood 0-7
For the second time in 5 days the Drumconrath band wagon headed South into deepest South Meath this time to the neat Village of Longwood with their fine GAA grounds. The pitch in Longwood while on a slight slope is one of the widest in the County with the Club being a dual club and Hurling very much on the agenda in this area and the row of mature Beech trees on the side of the pitch and the gentle bank behind the road goals leaves it an excellent venue for spectators to watch the game.
With the Sun still pretty high in the sky the trip southwards on the day before mid Summers day was a pleasant drive on this Lovely June evening and while Drums where again short a number of players it was a big improvement on the 16 and 17 togged out in the last 2 A League matches but with Captain Jamie Myles, Derek Duff, Damien Glass and Terry Halpenny all out through injury and the McEvoy brothers Peter and Alan also absent there was a worried look on the Drumconrath selectors as they knew that a win here was vital to stay in with a chance of progress in the A League.
Drumconrath gave start's two under 17s Daniel Byrne and Robert McEntaggart and both re-paid the confidence shown in them by having good games but once again the display of Stephan Crosby in the 1st half was central to Drumconrath's win. Crosby opened the scoreing inside the 1st minute with a fine point but Longwood through Mick Weir soon had the game level.
Drums pointed three more points through Byrne free's (2) and a super point from Paddy Carolan from the tightest of angles. Drumconrath seemed to take the foot off the pedal as they pointed twice and then Ryan Moore scored a vet good point to level the game with26 minutes gone. Alan Byrne did put Drums ahead after a great steal on a Longwood kick out and then Crosby in injury time won a ball around the middle of the field and struck for the Longwood goal. The shout from from the Drums dug out was "Stevies going for it" and go for it he did, by rounding a number of defenders and slotting the ball into the net past the helpless home side 'Keeper.
Drumconrath 1-5 to 0-4 at the break was a fitting score as the visitors had enjoyed plenty of possession in the opening 30 minutes.
Longwood played well in the early part of the second as as the pointed within a minute and then two points from the dangerous Ryan Moore both from free's had narrowed the gap to a single point by the 39th minute. Moore was marked well by Conor O'Halloran who got great support from Aiden Tighe, John McDermott and Thomas Carolan who all had fine games in the Drums rear guard.
Half time substitute Gavin Finnegan who had a really good half belted over a fine point on 40 minutes on Drumconrath's 1st second half attack and then the game went a full 15 minutes without a score until Finnegan raiding forward was fouled and Daniel Byrne pointed Drums 2 ahead with a well struck free.
Drums defended really well in the last 10 minutes and Alan Byrne wisely fisted over after Daniel Byrne had retrieved what looked like a lost cause and recycled the ball to his Uncle. Christy Tighe fired over on 57 minutes and Gavin Finnegan pointed on another counter attack as the game entered injury time.
This was a real squad effort as all players did their bit and substitutes used also showed good form.
Drumconrath; Sean Kane; John McDermott, Thomas Carolan, John Lynch; Robert McEntaggart, Aiden Tighe, Conor O'Halloran; Stephan Crosby (1-1), Christy Tighe (0-1); Tomas Conlon, Alan Byrne (0-2), Colm McEvoy; Daniel Byrne (0-3), Paddy Carolan (0-1), Peter Tighe. Subs; Gavin Finnegan (0-2) for McEvoy, Sean McMahon for Conlon, Cathal Dunne for P.Tighe.
ACFL Division 3 Round 7
Drumconrath 2-7 St Brigids 0-12
"Tús mhaith leath na H-oibre" is a good old saying and this was especially applicable to this game, Drumconrath played one of their best halves of Football in the 1st half of this game to lead by 9 points at the break but it was essential as the Second period was totally dominated by the home side.
The truth about it was that Drums found it extremely hard to to ensure that they had 15 players to travel the long distance to the North West and it looked dodgy for awhile with Tomas Conlon, Peter McEvoy and Eoin Martin all missing from the mid week game and when these where added to the list of Injured, Holidaymakers and Exam tied the absent list the tally came to a grand total of 12. Drumconrath know in the past what it is like not to get the required amount and a serious effort was made to ensure that would not happen.
Anxious glances at every car that drove into the picturesque Ballinacree outpost where greeted with a great sigh of relief when the magic number was made and just before the throw in the count made 16.
The early stages were closely contested with the home side getting off the mark 1st, Sean McMahon leveled the game and after 10 minutes Stephan Crosby put the visitors ahead. St Bigids equalized by the end of the 1st quarter but the next 15 minutes belonged to Drumconrath's walking wounded with up to 6 players carrying knocks.
Alan McEvoy fired over from play and then hit a well struck 45 straight and through, Paddy Carolan starting his 1st game in awhile pointed from out on the wing as he and Conor O'Halloran were working hard up front.
Colm McEvoy scored a delightful goal when he spotted the St Brigids keeper off his line to give Drums a great boost and while St Brigids pointed on their next attack, Crosby then pointed a free and Drums worked a great move which resulted in Crosby firing an unstoppable shot to the net to leave the score 2-6 to 0-3 at the break with the wide tally quite high with Brigids 8 to Drums 6.
St Brigids took over in the 2nd half and scored some fine points both from play and from frees with Oisin Kiernan pointing a 45 Killian Kiernan scoring some great scores but the best score was a Line ball from Joseph Blake was the best of all. That score leveled the game and Killiaan Kiernan then fired a powerful shot that cannoned back off the post as Drumconrath lived on their wits.
Nine points in total in a row had drawn the game as injury line approached and when on a rare attack Conor O'Halloran was fouled 40 metres out and Crosby pointed the resultant free to give Drums back the lead. Their was still an anxious 4 minutes of injury time but try as they might the home side could not get another score and Drumconrath held out.
This was a fine result for Drumconrath in a game where all 16 players did their bit to keep Drums outside chances of promotion alive.
Drumconrath; Sean Kane; John Lynch, Thomas Carolan, John McDermott; Aiden Tighe, Peter Tighe, Jamie Myles; Alan McEvoy (0-2), Sean McMahon (0-1); Daniel Myles, Stephan Crosby (1-3), Colm McEvoy (1-0); Derek Duff, Paddy Carolan (0-1), Conor O'Halloran. Sub; Gavin Finnegan for D Myles.

Division 3 Round 7
Meath Hill 0-11 Drumconrath 0-10
In what was an action packed game played in super charged atmosphere before a partisan crowd Meath Hill turned the tables on Drumconrath and gained revenge on Drums taking the points in the reverse fixture played in Meath Hill last year.
This tie means a lot in North Meath as two of the proudest Junior Clubs in the area where no quarter is given or asked when the Red and Blue sides of the Parish of Drumconrath clash.
Its 19 years since these sides clashed in one of the most memorable games in Pairc Tailteann in a game that stirred the Parish rivalry that has been on much of a knife edge ever since.
Drumconrath took the spoils that day amid joyous scenes in a game never to be forgotten by either side of the Parish.
Both sides are mid table in the League and both are on 1 from 3 in the Championship so both have a struggle on their hands to gain any silverware this year but on the evidence of this game both will battle to the final game of the year with hope in their hearts.
Both sides where missing players through exams, holidays and injuries with Drums hit hard with only 17 players togged out with Alan Byrne, Aiden Tighe Chris Tighe, Gavin Finnegan, Daniel Byrne, Damien Glass and Oran Finnegan among others all sidelined.
There was never more than 2 points between the sides and both got off the mark in the 6th minute with Eoin Martin pointing for the home side. Again the sides swapped points with Stephan Crosby and Jamie Myles getting the Drums points as the 1st quarter ended 0-3 each.
Meath Hill took the lead but Conor O'Halloran leveled the game with a point and while Meath Hill pulled 2 points ahead Crosby added a free to leave it 0-6 to 0-5 at the break.
The second half took on a similar vein as the sides shared 10 scores with Stephan Crosby pointing 3 times in a row to put Drumconrath 2 points ahead by the 40th minute. Meath Hill replied with 2 points to level the scores again. Alan McEvoy pointed a free to push the home side ahead again. The Hill pushed on to lead by 2 as McEvoy again fired over as the 60th minute passed as Drums could not find a way through to level again and on this occasion the Hill held out for victory in a similar fashion as Drumconrath did last year as the Hill supporters did not go home by Nobber this time
Drumconrath; Sean Kane; John Lynch, Thomas Carolan, John McDermott; Eoin Martin (0-1), Peter Tighe, Jamie Myles (0-1); Sean McMahon, Alan McEvoy (0-2); Colm McEvoy, Stephan Crosby (0-5), Tomas Conlon; Derek Duff, Peter McEvoy, Conor O'Halloran (0-1).
Carnaross 0-11 Drumconrath 0-7
In what was a Pre-Championship joust and the 4th clash between these Clubs in 2015, Carnaross's good start seen them secure the points in this 6th Round League game.
This results leaves the score at 2 each in the games this year and now the Championship game next Friday week is a big decider in more ways than one.
Carnaross with John L Magee proving a handful had 5 points on the board by the 18th minute before a 19th minute Stephan Crosby free opened the home sides tally. Crosby pointed again from play late in the half as the visitors added two more scores to end an error ridden half by the Drums as the trailed 0-7 to 0-2.
Carnaross stretched the lead with an early 2nd half point and while half time substitutes Tomas Conlon and Conor O'Halloran added points to leave 4 points in it as the last quarter started.
Crosby narrowed the gap to two points as both sides were reduced to 14 players in separate incidents. Carnaross added 3 further points and while Crosby pointed two late free's Carnaross had done enough to win the game.

Divison 3 Round 5
Drumconrath 1-13 St Marys 0-6
Drumconrath with a much changed team from the Junior Championship match last Saturday secured a 4th win out of 5 in Division 3 of the All County Leagues.
Into the team came Colm McEvoy, Conor O'Halloran, Oran Finnegan, Sean McMahon, Gavin Finnegan and teenager Robert McEntaggert for his very first 1st team appearance. Oran Finnegan also figured for the 1st time this year after picking up an injury in pre season training.
St Marys opened the game well and soon had two points on the board. Sean McMahon opened Drums account after 4 minutes and Alan Byrne pointed a free to level the game soon after.
Stephan Crosby pointed a long distance free to put Drums ahead but St Marys kicked on to lead 0-5 to 0-3 after 20 minutes and they suffered a blow when Mid Fielder McMahon picked up a Double Yellow at that stage.James Lynch one of St Marys better players in the early stages also seen his game over early as he picked up a Black Card.
McMahons sending off seemed to spur on Drumconrath who picked up their game as Jamie Myles (2) and Tomas Conlon got on the score sheet before half time and they could have been further ahead when Crosby found O'Halloran in space who in turn passed to Byrne but his delicate lob while it beat the Keeper came off the bar and was cleared to safety.
Drumconrath led 0-6 to 0-5 at the short whistle and came out in determined mood early in the 2nd half as Byrne and Crosby pointed frees inside 5 minutes and Byrne hit 2 from play to stretch the lead to 0-10 to 0-5. Peter McEvoy then received a Black Card as St Marys pointed their only 2nd half score.
Marys recieved a Black Card of their own when a crude tackle on Crosby was punished and the numbers were even again with both sides down to 14.
Crosby, Byrne and substitute John McDermott added further points and Crosby finished the scoring with a late goal as Darkness descended on the picturesque Donore setting.
Best for Drums where Conor O'Halloran, Oran Finnegan, Alan Byrne with subs Eoin Martin and John McDermott also doing well.

Division 3 Round 4
Drumconrath 3-6 Kilmainham 0-9
They say goals win games and this can be said about this game as Drumconrath hit 3 and that was the difference in the end. Discipline also has a part to play and when Kilmainham lost 2 players after 35 and 45 minutes it did their cause no good at all. Drumconrath finished with 14 Damien Glass got a Black card in injury time to go with an earlier yellow but the game was settled at that stage.
Drums have now won 3 out of 4 League games all against Intermediate sides and are co-leaders in the Division as the League now breaks for the Championship.
Kilmainham with Shane Morgan and Freddie Newman looking lively did well in the 1st half despite the sticky conditions and led 0-6 to 0-2 as injury time approached in the 1st half but Jamie Myles was hauled down in the square and Stephan Crosby scored the resulting penalty to add to his two 1st half frees to leave a single point between the sides at the break 0-6 to 1-2.
Kilmainham pointed early in the 2nd half but then the indiscipline set in. Myles hit a fine point on the run after 38 minutes and Newman replied with a free but then good work from Derek Duff and Peter McEvoy found Crosby close to goal and despite close attention from a number of Kilmainham defenders he managed to find the net to put Drums 2-3 to 0-8 ahead.
Drumconrath outscored the numerically disadvantaged visitors 1-3 to 0-1 for the rest of the half with Gavin Finnegan, Myles pointing and when on a break away attack Tomas Conlon was found in space and he netted Drums 3rd major. Alan Byrne pointed on 60 minutes as Kilmainham added an injury time point to end the scoring.
Drumconrath; Sean Kane; John Lynch. Thomas Carolan, John McDermott; Damien Glass, Peter Tighe, Colm McEvoy; Alan McEvoy, Jamie Myles (0-2); Chris Tighe, Stephan Crosby (2-2), Eoin Martin; Derek Duff, Alan Byrne (0-1), Peter McEvoy.

In Meath Hill
Drumconrath 1-11 Clann na nGael 0-13
Drumconrath won this exciting game in which Clann na nGael gave up home advantage in order to play under lights in Meath Hill on Friday night.
The breeze blew strongly straight down the pitch and towards the Cooley Mountains visible from the Meath Hill grounds not just on a clear day but on almost any day of the year.
Clann na nGael won the toss and elected to play with the wind but it was Drumconrath that got the scoring going when Alan Byrne pointed a free inside the 1st minute.The Athboy lads soon got going and with Aaron Ennis kicking well as he fired over 2 points one a massive one from near the side line. Gary Woods was accurate from free's and while Eoin Martin pointed for Drums Clann na nGael led 0-5 to 0-2 after 10 minutes.
Woods added another point but Christopher Tighe fired over after 16 minutes when a goal looked likely. Stephan Crosby pointed twice to narrow the gap to 2 points as Drumconrath were playing well. Crosby pointed a free and Woods replied with a similar score but the Final ten minutes of the half belonged to Drumconrath as Alan Byrne with silky skills found the net and Crosby added another point.
Drums continued in this vein and when Eoin Martin fielded highly on the edge of the square and swiveled delightfully and fired high over the bar Drumconrath ended the half on a high leading 1-7 to 0-7 with the breeze in their favour for the second half as Clans received a blow when Ennis was issued a Black Card in injury time.
Clann na nGael came out all guns blazing for the 2nd half and within the first two minutes had narrowed the gap to a single point through Ciaran Kelly and Luke Swaine. Drumconrath weathered the strom with Crosby and Byrne pointing on 6 and 8 minutes. Woods added a free after 12 minutes but Swaine looked sure to net but his shot came back off the upright and was cleared to safety.
Crosby added a fine point after 19 minutes but this was soon cancelled out as Drums led 1-10 to 0-11 with 50 minutes on the clock. Clann na nGael seemed to be in control but tenacious defending kept the score down as pressurized shots ended up as wide's.
Crosby pointed a free to leave 3 points in the game as Drumconrath defended deeply and invited Clann na nGael onto them but two late Woods free's were not enough as Drumconrath held out to win.
This was a fine team display from Drumconrath with all players doing well as Tomas Conlon, Derek Duff, Alan Byrne, Eoin Martin and Stephan Crosby having excellent outings.

Division 3 (Round 2)
Ballinabrackey 2-9 Drumconrath 0-5
Ballinabrackey last years beaten Intermediate Finalist's proved to strong for a battling Drumconrath side in Drumconrath in Round 2 of the Division 3A Leagues.
Bracks fielded a strong team with County panelists Damien Carroll and Nicky Judge lining out with them on this occassion.
On a cold but dry Spring morning the Drumconrath pitch freshly cut and lined out for this game it was the visitors who started best with Damien Carroll pointing from play. Drums received a blow when Oran Finnegan was forced off early on and where still rearranging their defensive when Ballinabrackey struck for their 1st goal on 9 minutes when after a fine Sean Kane save Andrew Munnelly was on hand to find the net with the rebound.
Two excellent Stephan Crosby points from play got Drums off the mark but that was to be their lot for the 1st half as Carroll point 3 frees on 14, 18 and 26 minutes. Nicky Judge got forward to point from play and Seamus Curry pointed a late free to leave it 1-6 to 0-2 at the break.
With the stiff breeze now in their faces Drumconrath it was an uphill battle for the home side in the 2nd half and Curry again fired over a free just 2 minutes in.
Drumconrath defended bravely and neither side managed another score in that 3rd quarter and the supporters had to wait a full 16 minutes when Crosby pointedtwice from frees on 48 and 49 minutes to leave the score 1-7 to 0-4 at that stage.
Indeed Drumconrath felt aggrieved when Crosby was fouled but managed to get the ball to Alan Byrne who palmed to the empty net but with no advantage given the play was called back for that 2nd Crosby pointed free.
A mistake in the Drums defense on 50 minutes saw Danny Quinn palm to the empty net to effectively seal the game and soon after a booming Trevor Bannon point from 60 metres made sure of the points from the Bracks.
Late points from Aaron Kennedy on 55 and a fine injury time point from Crosby ended the scoring with Ballinabrackey moving to the top of the table following this result.

Drumconrath 1-9 Syddan 0-11
Christy’s goal rocks Syddan
Drumconrath secured a winning start to the season with a hard fought single point win over neighbours and keen rivals Syddan in Sunny but cold Ludlow Pairc on the last day of Winter.
Sean Kane’s charges worked really hard and his team mates put trust in his system and got their just rewards after looking a little shaky as the game entered the final quarter when the home side held a 3 point lead.
Drums got off to a good start with Christopher Tighe on target but Daire Rowe equalized from play soon after. Drumconrath were making it clear that they were not just here to make up the numbers and battled for every ball with Alan McEvoy influential at midfield and Peter Tighe showing up very well at centre half back. New signing from St Colmcilles Graham Garland pointed Syddan ahead but Alan Byrne levelled the game at the end of the 1stquarter with a well struck free. Further frees from Byrne and Stephan Crosby were answered by similar scores from Rowe (play) and 2 Gary Farrelly frees.
Drumconrath finished the half well with points from play from Alan McEvoy, Gavin Finnegan and another Byrne free to give Drumconrath a 1 point half time lead 0-7 to 0-6. Drums had lost stalwart corner back John McDermott with injury and he was replaced with Patrick Dunne.
Syddan came out in a determined mood and soon Rowe levelled the game with a free and he edged the home side 2 ahead with points from play and Syddan began to look threatening as the 3rdquarter ended with Alan McEvoy receiving a Black Card, Drumconrath began to look under pressure but Peter McEvoy forsook his defensive duties and Drums got a foothold around the middle again.
Alan Byrne and Eoin Martin were giving the Syddan defence problems and while Syddan point again to lead 0-10 to 0-7 Drumconrath where giving as good as they got. Byrne missed two frees but good work from him seen Christopher Tighe cleverly fist to the empty net to draw the match level with 7 minutes to go and straight from the kick out Drumconrath won a free which Byrne pointed for Drumconrath to hit the front at a vital stage.
The game was in the melting pot now and Syddan received a blow with a straight Red to Peter Sheehy after a wild tackle on Stephan Crosby, 2 Black cards in quick succession had Syddan rattled but Rowe levelled the game on 60 minutes.
Late in injury time Crosby won a breaking ball and waltzed throught the Syddan defence and hit a fine point to secure the points for Drumconrath.
This win was fashioned on a good work ethic and taking chances at the right time as Jamie Myles, Peter Tighe, Alan McEvoy and Derek Duff doing well while Sean Kane, Stephan Crosby and Christopher Tighe showing great leadership.
