Division 3  
(Round 6) 

Result: 
CLG ACLA 2-12 
Lahardane McHales 1-11 

On a glorious evening for football, Johnathan Fadian’s first minute score ensured the home side led for the majority of the game to take the spoils at Davitt Park. Achill had to play much of the game with fourteen men, following a red card for Stephen Grealis. The game was hugely physical from the start, and there were many stand out performances for the green and white, most notably from Brian Gallagher, Eddie Doran and Pete Gallagher at the back. The introduction of Tomás McGlynn between the posts paid dividends also, as he made no less than three excellent saves, ensuring a clean sheet for himself for the evening. A hugely entertaining game from start to finish - a massive result for our lads. Maith sibh uilig! 

Achill Scorers:
John Joyce (1-3, 0-2f) Toirlach Dever (1-2), Brian Lavelle (0-3, 0-1f) Johnathan Fadian (0-2), Denis Taxi McNamara (0-1), Stephen Grealis (0-1).

Junior Championship Group 1 Round 2 
19.5.18 
Ballycastle 1-07  CLG ACLA 1-08 

Although the low return on the scoreboard may not suggest it, this was a game that had everything for the considerable amount of supporters that travelled north for the Championship Round 2 clash. Achill led from the outset, going in 3 points up at the break, 0-6 to 0-3. The pace upped a gear in the second half, but it was Ballycastle who did the bulk of the scoring, with Micheál and Fergal Forde in particular, causing no end of problems for the visitors. Their efforts made things all square at 0-7 apiece as the game entered the final stages. A John Joyce free put a tiny bit of daylight between the teams once more, leaving the spectators wondering if it would be enough to see Achill over the line. Injuries to to Ballycastle players Micheál Forde and Kevin Healy meant a longer than usual period of injury time. It was in this period that the scores of the day were converted. Brothers Gerard and Johnathan Fadian combined well to offload the ball to stalwart Micky D McNamara who, as on so many other occasions, made no mistake as he stuck the ball in the back of the net. Achill 4 points clear! A chance to breathe more easily? Not likely! In the blink of any eye, the ball was in the back of the Achill net. Achill supporters could only look on anxiously in the hope that the whistle would blow quickly - which it did, signalling the end of an excellent showdown. 
Following Kilmovee Shamrocks’ defeat of Ardagh this evening, Achill’s championship group remains wide open. Achill have won two, Ardagh and Kilmovee have both won and lost a game and Ballycastle have lost 2 games. Round 3 is expected to be played in early July. Well done to our lads this far!

Sunday 6th May marked a new chapter in Achill GAA with the official opening of the Club House by Michael Ring, Minister for Community and Rural Development. 

A large crowd was in attendance to witness the official opening of the €388,000 state of the art development which encompasses four dressing rooms, public toilets, community meeting room and a function room. 

Our museum documenting the history of our club, School competitions, memorabilia and newspaper reports provoked many memories and transported so many back to relive that moment of history. 

Achill GAA wish to extend thanks to all those who helped and supported our endeavors this weekend. As so eloquently put  on Sunday its our "Theatre of Dreams" and  is an example of the can do approach in our community.

U16 Match Report

Achill welcomed Louisburgh to a windswept Davitt Park this evening for their latest game of the 2018 league. The lads in green and white were hoping to register a home win, following a defeat away to Tourmakeady last week. Knowledge and experience of the Achill climate proved valuable, as the Achill lads showed they were in no way hindered by the extremely strong wind that had a huge influence on the flow of the game - not a midge to be seen this side of Castlebar!

The game was barely a minute old when Colin Grealis opened Achill's account, kicking a fine point. This was followed minutes later by a goal from his first cousin Eugene Doran. These two scores proved to be the opening of the scoring floodgates for Achill. Goals and points from Seán Lively McNamara, Finnian McGurk, Colin Grealis and Ciarán Cafferkey - who ended up with a hat-trick plus one for the evening - as well as points from Eóin Murphy, Michael Lavelle and Colin Grealis meant that Achill went in at the short whistle in an extremely comfortable position. Louisburgh had to be content with just a point for the half. Cian McCarthy, adjusting to his new positioning between the sticks, had very little to do during the course of the half, but answered any questions asked of him by Louisburgh. 

Conor Ginnelly took over between the posts for in the second half as the first half goalkeeper moved out the field. It took almost ten minutes for the first flag of the second half to be raised. The colour was white, as Seán Lively McNamara kicked over the bar. Cian Gallagher was keen to get in on the scoring act, and netted two, the first of which will probably go down as the score of the game. Ignoring the spectators' encouragement to kick the ball over the bar, he skillfully and stylishly slotted the ball to the net, to gasps of admiration from the occupants of the stand. The only one who didn't seem in any way amazed by such a skilful execution was the linesman!!!!
Louisburgh enjoyed a couple of short purple patches during the last twenty minutes. On both occasions they scored two goals in two minutes to add to their first half tally. The woodwork and good defensive work from John McGinty, Ciarán Callaghan and JP Lavelle ensured that Louisburgh were denied further scores. Ryan Wilson also contributed a goal for the green and white this evening. It was Louisburgh who had the last score of the game, kicking over a point practically on the final whistle. 
Having done so much in the first half, there was only ever going to be one winner at Davitt Park this evening. Achill took the spoils against, what it must be said, was a gallant Louisburgh side, which displayed an extremely strong never-say-die ethic in what was for them, an uphill battle practically all the way. 
Well done to our own lads also. Nár laga Dia sibh!
