Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
Cnoc Sion 0-11
Roanmore 1-10The Junior A Footballers played the Eastern Final on a once again pristine Walsh Park pitch against Roanmore on Sunday last, Sion started well scoring two points in the opening minutes with Martin F. O’Neill a big influence on the play in those early stages, Roanmore though fought back and got what proved to be decisive goal midway through the half before a couple of late points put Sion up by the minimum at the break, half time score Cnoc Sion 0-08 Roanmore 1-04, the second half was tense affair with both sides probing and misses proving to be costly, eventually at the end Roanmore just edged it by two points to go through to next week’s County final against Kilrossanty, thanks to everyone for getting involved and keeping the proud Football tradition in the club going.
John Keane TournamentOn Saturday last our Under 9 boys played in the annual John Keane Memorial Tournament held in the club for many years in honour of a great Mount Sion and Waterford man.
Connacht, captained by Alex Walsh and Cillian Byard, overcame Leinster in the final, Ulster, under Adam Cleere and Callum O’Toole were worthy winners in the Shield final.
Thanks to John’s daughter Margaret who made the presentation of cups on behalf of the Keane family, thanks also to all the parents for their continued support and also for their rigid adherence to covid guidelines. Special thanks also to Starchamp Sliotars for providing a sliotar for every child as part of their prizes.
