Dicey Reilly's to host St Fiacc's quiz fundraiser

St Fiacc's AFC was founded in 2002 and their home pitch is in Graiguecullen, to the rear of St Fiacc's National School.

They also rent a second pitch beside the arch in Oak Park. They are a small but growing club and since their foundation have been successful due to the commitment, dedication and passion of their players and staff.

They now have teams ranging from the Academy team, 9s, 10s, 11, 16, 18, a Senior 'A' and 'B' team with the all important over 35s and next season are expecting to have an under 12 team

They have created a website www.stfiaccsfc.com for use by players, staff, supporters of the club and anyone with an interest to provide all relevant club information and contact details along with pictures and other stuff to give you a laugh.

To help in the ongoing funding a table quiz has been arranged for Saturday February 6 in Dicey Reilly's. On the night there is cash prizes and raffle.

Tables are a modest €40 per table of four

Killeshin FC........................................................ 1

Nurney Villa...................................................... 4

Nurney were a little flattered by the final score line in this encounter in the Nationalist Division.

Killeshin got off to a flying start and took a six minute lead when Sean Farrell picked up the ball just inside the Villa half, outpaced the defence to slip the ball past the Nurney 'keeper, Dinny Byrne.

Villa were back on level terms on 17 minutes. Jimmy Cullen advanced from left back to beat the Killeshin 'keeper with a fine strike.

A couple of positive changes for Villa during the break seemed to improve their performance, however there was still little between the teams.

Then the vital breakthrough came on 66 minutes when the Killeshin 'keeper made a fine save, pushing a John Miley effort around the post.

When Pakie Fleming's corner kick was swung over, Miley got on the end of it to make no mistake from five yards range.

On 72 minutes, substitute Seamus Kinsella sent a blistering shot to the net off the crossbar and Willie Kearney completed the scoring for Villa with a fine shot on 78 minutes to finish the game for Nurney in fine style.

Nurney Villa..................................................... 2

St. Anne's......................................................... 2

An Evening Herald Division mid-table clash saw both teams on equal points going into the tie and there was little surprise with them finishing on equal terms.

It was the visitor's, St Anne's, who broke the deadlock on 28 minutes through John Griffin.

Brian Quinlan and Griffin both went on to miss good chances for the Saints to add to their advantage.

They were left to rue those missed opportunities when Nurney equalised on 41 minutes. A free kick from Martin Deevy set up John Townsend Jnr to finish from close in.

Villa had the better of the early second half exchanges and took the lead on 53 minutes, Mick Dowling put a ball through for to run onto and score.

Back came the Saints and Damian Kelly tied the game up again when he finished with the goal of the game.

Both side had chances with Brain Quinlan going close for Anne's, hitting the bottom of the upright and Pat Deevy had a shot just inches wide for Villa.

However, with two well matched teams there cannot be litle argument that the final scoreline was a fair result.
