Senior Ladies Div 2 Result: NE 2:9 to 0:3 Ardoyne
The Senior Ladies bounced back from an opening game defeat to a very strong St. Paul's side last weekend with a win in this week's Div 2 league game against Ardoyne. A fantastic team performance from start to finish, with excellent defensive play throughout as well as unstoppable support and attacking play. The girls dominated the game throughout and ran out 2:9 to 0:3 winners. It will be a tough season in Div 2 but good to get the first points on the board.
Scorers - Brónagh Meighan​ (1:2), Marie McDonald​ (1:1), Maeve Higgins​ (0:2), Una O'Neill (0:1), Eilis Crickard​ (0:1), Jane McNulty (0:1) and Aoife McCullough (0:1).

Naomh Éanna 2.13 Rasharkin 0.05

Our reserve footballers played their first league game of the season on Friday evening against Rasharkin,

With a strong panel to pick from, Naomh Éanna blitzed Rasharkin in the first half and led 1.8 to 0.2 at the break.

With 8 different scorers it was a good performance by the whole team, hopefully we can continue with this form over the coming weeks.

Next Sunday will be our first “double header” of the season with the senior footballers and Reserves both playing Tir Na Og in Randalstown.

The team was – Marty Craig, Ciaran Hughes, Conor Smyth, Eoghan o Neill, Mark Owens, Peter McKillen, Fintan Eastwood, Kevin Hillen (0.1), Sean McCullough, Paddy Coogan (0.2), Robert McIlhone (0.2), Michael Morgan (1.2), Paul Darby (0.2), Mark Mooney (0.2), Tieran Curran (1.0) subs Dermot Monaghan (0.2), Domo Millar, Paddy Dorrian, Chris Losty, Eoin McNulty.

First senior football league match of the 2015 season - Naomh Éanna v Rasharkin

Last night our senior footballers made their return to all county division 2 football after a 3 year exile in division 3. Played on the Paddy Laverty pitch which was in pristine condition, the senior footballers made a nervous start against Rasharkin who were playing in division 2 after their relegation from division 1 last season.
Rasharkin opening the scoring with a close in free after 3 minutes, this was to be the only time they would lead the game. It took Naomh Éanna 7 minutes before they would register their first score with a pointed free from Ruairi Scott. Two minutes later Rian Gillen received a black card for a late challenge on the Rasharkin keeper. This seemed to unsettle Naomh Éanna and they struggled for a period before Kristan Healy scored the next point in the thirteenth minute. Rasharkin drew level with their first point from play but Naomh Éanna hit a purple spell and scored 4 points without reply with scores coming from Ruairi Scott (2), Philly Curran and Sean McCullough. Naomh Éanna were playing well at this stage and could have been much further ahead but for some poor shooting. Rasharkin pulled a point back before the break with another close in free.

After the break Naomh Éanna made one change with Donal Walsh replacing Eoin McNulty. Rasharkin started the 2nd half with the wind behind them and registered the first score of the half after 2 minutes. For the next 10 minutes the match became a game of chess, both teams countered each other out. Then Naomh Éanna hit 1.3 (including a rare point from full back Conor Smyth), without reply and put the game beyond Rasharkin’s reach. Indeed Naomh Éanna really should have worked the scoreboard much more. Several goal opportunities went a begging and quite a few shots dropped short into the keepers arms.

The game petered out as a contest and no further scores were registered in the last 10 minutes.

All in all it was an encouraging start by Naomh Éanna. The team was relatively young, eleven players from last year’s u 21 team including two 18 year olds and six 19 year olds. Next up is an away game v Tir na Og on Sunday 19 April.

The team was – Chris Losty, Fintan Eastwood, Conor Smyth (0.1), Conor Maxwell, Ryan Kennedy, Kevin Hillen, Damian Gault, Philly Curran (0.1), Sean McCullough (0.1), Kristan Healy (0.1), Ruairi Scott (0.4,1f), Eoin McNulty, Peter Healy, Conall Scott, Rian Gillen, subs James MacAuley (1.0), Donal Walsh (0.1), Daniel Kennedy, Paddy Coogan, Tieran Curran.

A Chairde

Naomh Éanna CLG (St Enda's GAC) are delighted to advise that we have been able to secure the exceptional Brassneck Theatre production 'Man in the Moon' for Friday 1st May. Since the play was last at the club in 2013, it has gone on to win International awards on Broadway New York, London, Endinurgh and Brussels. Indeed we are lucky to be the only venue outside the Lyric Theatre and the Roddy McCorley club to present the play this year in Belfast.

There will be musical entertainment after the play as well.

We anticipate tickets to sell out very quickly so please contact me as soon as possible to book your place.

Go raibh maith agaibh

1. A Yellow Card does not carry into extra time.

2. Referee may consult with a neutral linesman concerning the validity of a score.

3. Penalty – One defending player on the goal-line who may not move towards the 20m line until the ball has actually been struck. The player taking the penalty may place it up to 7m back from the 20m line and within the arc but must strike the ball on or outside the 20m line.

4. For free pucks for Technical Fouls committed inside the large rectangle and awarded on the centre point of the 20m line, a maximum of five players may stand on the goal-line and may not move forward until the ball has been struck. The player taking the free puck may place the ball up to 7m back from the 20m line and within the arc but must strike it on or outside the 20m line.

5. For a 20m free puck awarded for a foul committed outside the large rectangle, all players shall stand a minimum of 20m from the point of award of the free and may not move closer to that point until the ball has been struck.

6. Rule 2.4 and 4.16 – If a defending player(s) fouls before the ball is struck and a goal does not result, the referee shall give the penalty taker/free taker the option of re-taking the Penalty Puck/Free Puck or of having a point scored to stand.

7. If a player taking a Penalty Puck or other Free Puck awarded on the 20m line fails to lift the ball at the first attempt or fails to strike it with the hurley, even if the action causes it to marginally cross the 20m line, he shall be allowed to strike the ball on the ground without delay.

8. Advantage – Referee may allow the play to continue for up to 5 seconds after a foul; if no advantage accrues during that 5 seconds he may subsequently award a free puck for the foul.
(This is the same rule that has been in place in football for the past year; no advantage accruing would include such instances of a pass going astray, another player moving in to tackle as soon as the fouled player gets away from the initial foul, a shot taken within the five seconds which goes wide, a shot taken within the 5 seconds which is saved by the goalkeeper etc; in these instances the referee should come back and award the original free.
If a player/team who had been awarded an advantage commits a foul within the 5 second period then the free shall be awarded against him for the subsequent foul)

1. A Yellow Card does not carry into extra time.

2. Referee may consult with a neutral linesman concerning the validity of a score.

3. Rule 2.3 and 4.16 – If a defending player(s) fouls at a Penalty Kick situation before the ball is kicked and a goal does not result, the referee shall give the penalty taker the option of re-taking the Penalty Kick or of having a point scored to stand.
