Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 29/10/18


Armagh Ladies Division 2 Minor Championship Final

Cross V Granemore

The minor ladies took the field in Carrickcruppen to contest the Division 2 Championship Final. The game got off to a good start with Caomhinn O’Neill opening the scores for Cross with a well worked pointed. Cross fought the kick out at Shauna O’Callaghan, unfortunately the ball dropped short and into the keepers hands.Granemore carried the ball, and delivered it to their number 14, who was being marked by Faye Fitzpatrick. Faye worked hard to divert her first scoring attempt but it wasn’t long until she opened their score board.

Aoife McDermott’s strong kick out, consistently found a amber and black jersey, and this allowed us to produce from quality scores. Alexandra Clarke worked a point, then with the support of Shauna, followed it up with a goal. This was the start of a scoring spree from Cross, and when the half time whistle blew across led 3.07 to 0.03.

The second half commenced, Cross again dominating play, two quick points from Alex and Caoimhe. This set the pace for the second half, and across managed to find the net five more times, before Granemore managed to produce a score. Cross made good use of their subs, and just onto the pitch Kellie Shields scored a point.  The final whistle blew with a score of 7.15 to 1.04.

Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 22/10/18.



Mr Paddy Kindlon Senior

When news broke on Saturday night that Paddy has passed away, we were immensely sad. Paddy, a true gentleman was devoted to the Crossmaglen Rangers Club.
Last year, when we celebrated twenty years from our first All Ireland win, I went to visit our President. Despite his frail health, Paddy was his usual friendly self and what a warm and hearty welcome I received.
Paddy had his club tie on and he reminisced about those glory days along with friends Noel & the Bishop. The craic was ninty! The visit couldn’t be complete without a photo shoot.

Ulster Camogie Junior Club Final

Despite a gallant effort from the girls, it wasn’t to be their day. It was an evenly matched encounter for most of the match but when Clontibret went two ahead in the final minutes of the game, we battled hard and had opportunities but just couldn’t get the scores.
Hard luck girls and management, we are so proud of you all.

Cross 1-05  Clontibret O’Neills 1-07

Armagh GAA Simplyfruit Minor Football Championship Final

Cross V Armagh Harps

On Saturday evening, all roads led to the Athletic Grounds for the Armagh Minor Championship Final. Our opponents were Armagh Harps and Christopher Lennon was the man in charge.
Harps settled quickly, scoring three unanswered points in the opening minutes (2,F). We were struck a hard blow early on, full back Ryan Duffy sustained an injury and wasn’t fit to continue and was substituted by Ruairí Kieran.
Harps were very much in control in the opening quarter and had a super chance of a goal if it where not for our number one, Stephen Morgan. They blasted a shot at goal but a fantastic block from Stephen kept Harps at bay.
Our opening scores came thanks to Captain Cían McConville just past the midway point of the first half, four points in as many minutes (2F) edged us in front for the first time by the narrowest of margins with ten to go until the break. A Harps point levelled matters but we finished the half the strongest, four points in quick succession, Odhran Kieran, Dara O’Callaghan, James Teelan and Cían McConville (F) give us a comfortable lead and seconds before Christopher Lennon blew the whistle to signal half time, Harps scored a point to reduce the deficit and to leave the score at the midway point;
