Senior Football Championship update

Clara 2- 9 Edenderry 0 -13

Edenderry's senior footballers had a disappointing start to their championship campaign with a two point loss to Clara on Saturday evening. Edenderry started well and went three points clear before giving Clara the concession of two easy goals, the second one in particular. Both sides added three further points before the break to leave Clara ahead by 2-3 to 0-6. Clara got the first point of the second half and Edenderry were playing catch-up thereafter. Within the final ten minutes Edenderry got within a point but Clara added two more points before Sean Doyle completed the scoring to leave just two between the sides. It was a disappointing performance from Edenderry with some players below par and we also lost out in our commitment to the breaking ball. On a positive note we can look forward to the return of regular stars Sean Pender and Richie Dalton who will give more leadership and direction to the team. Minor football star Cian Farrell showed he is very capable of playing at this level.

Edenderry Team: Brian Quinlan, David Brady, Alan Pender, Eoin Dunne, Adam Mahon, Colm Byrne, Diarmuid Meleady, Stephen Guing, David Hanlon, Oran Lawton Jordan Hayes, Ciaran Farrell, Sean Doyle, Cian Farrell, Ciaran Hurley

It is with deep sorrow and regret that Edenderry GAA has learnt of the passing to his eternal reward of John Crosbie Snr., Ardbash, Edenderry. John, a Wexford native, spent all of his adult life living and working in Edenderry. He gave new meaning to the term VOLUNTEERING, for over forty years he called the numbers at Sunday night Bingo and astonishingly rarely missed a night. John also served as Club Secretary. Edenderry GAA and the community as a whole will long remember John's selfless contribution to Club and Parish. Our sincere condolences to the Crosbie family.
