Another away trip for this group in a SFAI competition and the girls put in a mighty effort throughout and unfortunately came out the wrong end of a very tight game. Good experience for all involved.
The boys travelled this morning to play St Joseph’s in what was a 50/50 game the whole way throughout until the last 10 minutes when we were caught ball chasing twice to cause 2 very soft goals. St Joseph’s were gifted a 3rd when the ball was kicked straight to the striker to tap in the goal right before full time to take the 3 points. Although the result wasn’t good there were plenty positives to take from the first 50 minutes of the game.
A massive well done to U16 player Ella Brennan who starred last Friday evening with the Waterford U16 Development Squad against Carlow in horrendous weather in the SETU Arena. The game ended 3-3.
We are inviting all people in Mooncoin and surrounding areas to attend a special event this Friday, 27th October in Mooncoin Parish Hall for The Vicky Phelan Campaign and Portrait Exhibition.
The event in Mooncoin will be MC’d by Billy Keane and Panel Discussion will be moderated by Tammy Darcy. We also have The Mount Sion Choir singing too. It will be an extra special event as its Vicky’s birthday on the 28th and her anniversary is two weeks later.
The “Vicky Phelan Campaign & Portrait Tour” is a campaign for “awareness” and “change”. This is what Vicky wanted her legacy to be and for the women of Ireland to carry her Baton, to stand up for themselves and fight for change. Following the Cervical Check Scandal, Vicky fought so hard for change in the health services and how women and their families were treated by the State in the aftermath of the scandal. Vickys legacy and her campaign will continue through this tour. It is supported by Vickys family & friends and they are very much part of the Campaign Tour also.
With the Vicky Phelan Campaign & Portrait Tour, we bring together people of all ages to listen to Vickys story and heed her message to everyone as well as hearing from women and men that have been effected by cancer and how the awareness that they all want to create so as Vicky continues to empower people to take control of their own health and to be their own advocates.
Hoping to see you all on Friday.

Today we made the short trip to our neighbours Piltown for our second league match of the season. The game started off evenly and both teams were giving everything. Unfortunately an error by Mooncoin gave our hosts a goal that they didn’t deserve. Piltown buoyed by this pushed on and through some fantastic skill by Piltown they doubled the lead. After the hairdryer treatment from JP and a couple of changes to our formation at halftime our girls took to the field with extra impetus. We pulled a goal back thru a superb Ella Brennan long range free kick that left the goalie no chance. The girls pushed on and went very close towards the end when the ball was pinballed around the Piltown 6 yards box for what felt like an eternity but unfortunately we couldn’t find the net. In the last minute Piltown got a corner kick from which they scored a third goal.
All 15 girls that travelled got a good run out and all gave a good account of themselves. After the game even the Piltown coaches couldn’t understand how the ball didn’t cross the line to make it 2 2. But that’s football for you.
We go again on Sunday next at 11.30am in the SFAI Cup at home in Suir Cresent against Stoneyford. Hopefully these girls can put today’s result behind them and focus on next weekend.
A cold dry day in Co Laois today saw a hatful of goals scored and to be honest it could have been a lot more with both sides going very close on numerous occasions. We led 2-1 at half time with Briona and Ciara scoring and we went 3-1 up right after half time through Sophie. Killeshin pulled a goal back but we restored our 2 goal advantage with Lexi putting us 4-2 up with 15 minutes left. Killeshin’s two star player’s then clicked in to gear and pegged us back to 4-4 with a minute to go and two goals in injury time saw Killeshin advance. Brilliant performance going forward by both teams, two good goalkeeping displays kept the score to 6-4 in a crazy entertaining game. A very disappointed bunch got back on the bus without the win but can be proud of their efforts. Thanks to Killeshin for after match refreshments and best of luck in the rest of the competition. Please note, the team photo was taken after the game, hence no smiles😞.
All involved in Mooncoin Celtic wish the very best of luck to Mooncoin Intermediate Camogie and Hurling teams in their County Finals this coming weekend. 🤞 There will be a couple of 🏆🏆 being lifted this weekend.

Our u18s took to the pitch for a Home fixture against Bohemians. Previous fixtures between the sides have been one sided affairs , but today every one of the girls 1-15 battled to keep the Margin to the bare minimum. With a single goal for bohemians the 25th minute the difference.
The girls battled hard from first minute , and worked tirelessly together throughout , with a couple of chances coming our way to equalise , unfortunately we didn’t capitalise on them . A very good performance from our side today with plenty to work on for the next game .
