ROUND-UP: Go Ahead Adult Football League Division 3 & Division 4

Tue, 21st March 2023

St Patrick’s Donabate seized control after the break to register an ultimately comfortable 1-11 to 0-6 victory over Clanna Gael Fontenoy in their Go Ahead Ireland Dublin Adult Football League Division 3 encounter in Donabate on Wednesday evening.

The visitors played with the elements in the first-half and with chances tough to create, they entered the break with a narrow 0-6 to 0-3 interval lead.

Given the strength of the breeze, that three-point margin looked insufficient, and so it proved in the third quarter as St Pat’s assumed complete supremacy with Ollie Brooks putting the final touches to an excellent team move for the game’s only goal.

Brooks added two points for the hosts, who conformed their dominance thanks to the scoring contributions of Padraig McGill (0-3), Stephen Dempsey (0-2), Dylan Knight (0-2) and the superb performance further down the field from corner-back Darren Maher.

On St Patrick’s Day, Naomh Barróg maintained their dream start to the year as they got the better of Erin’s Isle by 4-11 to 3-5 at Páirc Barróg.

Sean McHugh top scored with 2-2, as the hosts added to their tally through Killian foran (1-1), the excellent Luke Nolan (0-3) and Finn Alexander (1-0), with Barróg full-back Noel Hatton impressing throughout.

On Sunday morning, Naomh Fionnbarra proved too strong for St Peregrine’s at Blakestown Road, prevailing by 3-12 to 1-4 by the final whistle.

The likes of Dylan Curley, Clayton Farrell and Jordan Fitzsimons were instrumental in the visitors’ supremacy and that dominance was translated into goals from Paul Turner, Tommy O’Neill and Sean Murphy.

In Division 4 of the Go Ahead Adult Football League, St Patrick’s Palmerstown confirmed their place at the summit of the table with a resounding 4-8 to 0-6 victory over Templeogue Synge Street at Grangegorman on Thursday night.

At midfield, Garbhan Gallagher provided an excellent platform for St Pat’s, allowing the likes of Graham Kelly (2-0) and Collie Driver (0-5) to put daylight between the teams.

David O’Hanlon and Barry O’Hanlon impressed from full-back and centre-back respectively and with Jack O’Leary influencing play from a roving half-forward role, the hosts secured their win through a goal from substitute Adam Devitt.

Hot on their heels are a Ballinteer St John’s side that started on the front foot in defeating St Vincent’s by 0-16 to 1-9 at Páirc Naomh Uinsionn.

Points from Eoghan Joyce, Cillian Minogue and Niall Dunphy saw the visitors five points to the good before Vinnies replied strongly before the break to reduce their deficit to two points (0-7 to 0-5) by half-time.

The tightness continued after the break with the hosts netting to draw level midway through the half but Ballinteer regained their control to finish strongly with the final four points of the game.

Dunphy was in fine form from placed balls, scoring eight points, while Minogue (0-4), Ronan Cullen (0-2) and Joyce (0-2) also impressed for a St John’s team well served at the back by Cormac O’Dwyer, Finán Chambers and Eamon Cloonan.
