The waiting is nearly over and the final pieces of the jigsaw are now in place as St Brigid’s ready themselves for a titanic All-Ireland Club Football Final showdown with Dublin and Leinster club champions Ballymun Kickhams on St Patrick’s Day.
I sent a brief text to Liam McHale and Kevin McStay last Sunday evening congratulating them on guiding St Brigid’s of Roscommon to a Connacht title. These two lads were brought in by the Roscommon club to launch a serious bid for All-Ireland, an honour which, understandably, placed and places them under huge pressure. Had they not managed to at least achieve a provincial title, they would have been perceived as failures. On the evidence of last Sunday, I believe they have a fantastic chance of going all the way with this team.
Sunday in Castlebar’s McHale Park was a terrific day for St Brigid’s GAA Club from Roscommon, capping a glorious few years when winning their third consecutive Connacht senior title.
The Way It Is by Ray Silke
Considering the referee’s display last weekend in the Connacht club final in Kiltoom, a satirical joke is an appropriate way to start this week’s column.
Clann na nGael recently celebrated its 75th year in existence so it was a fitting birthday present that the current senior side made no mistake about the outcome of this relegation final. The famed south Roscommon club are no longer the force they once were but maintaining their senior status is every bit as, and perhaps more valuable, than any of the many county and provincial titles won in years gone by.
These are busy times for all dyed-in-the wool supporters of the green and red of St Brigid’s. Last weekend the ladies team had little difficulty in capturing the senior county title at the expense of Kilglass Gaels. This weekend it’s the men’s turn to try and bring back the coveted Fahey Cup to the parish after a gap of two years. In a few weeks time the intermediate team will also contest their county final. All going well they will be hoping to complete a memorable and surely unique treble for the famous south Roscommon club.
