John McSweeney Perpetual Tournament 2010 Report Page

01/05/2010  Winners: Donoughmore


On Saturday 1st May, Aghabullogue hosted a football tournament in memory of John McSweeney, from Rylane who died so tragically a number of years ago. This tournament was organised by Aghabullogue GAA club in conjunction with the McSweeney family and will be an annual event, with the proposed alternation between football and hurling every second year. This was a great way to honour such a talented and dedicated club player.


Donoughmore ran out winners of the John McSweeney tournament 2010 following a victory over Clondrohid, in a game where extra time was required to separate the teams. The final score read 3-10 to 1-08 in favour of Donoughmore. Seven teams participated in the tournament with Aghabullogue (1), Canovee (1), Dripsey and Donoughmore in group A and Aghabullogue(2), Canovee(2) and Clondrohid in group B. Group games were 7 minutes aside and a panel of 10 players was permitted for each team.


Donoughmore and Clondrohid topped their groups and met in the final, which consisted of ten minutes aside. The game was very close and at the full time whistle, the teams were on level terms and extra time was required to decide the winners. In extra time, Donoughmore got some vital scores, which saw them run out as deserved winners on the day.
