Comórtas gailf: Ryder Cup

Gach dara bliain bíonn comórtas gailf idir imreoirí ón Eoraip agus imreoirí ó Stáit Aontaithe Mheiriceá. Is iad Thomas Bjørn, captaen na hEorpa, agus Jim Furyk, captaen na Stát Aontaithe a roghnaigh na himreoirí.

Every two years there is a golf competition between players from Europe and the United States of America. Thomas Bjørn, captain of Europe and Jim Furyk, captain of the United Sates picked the players.

I mbliana bhí an comórtas ar siúl i Le Golf National sa Fhrainc. Beidh an comórtas ar siúl arís in 2020 in Wisconsin sna Stáit Aontaithe. Déanann siad malartú gach dara uair leis an gcomórtas san Eoraip uair amháin agus sna Stáit Aontaithe an chéad uair eile.

This year the competition was held in Le Golf National in France. The competition will be held again in 2020 in Wisconsin in the United States. They swap every second time with the competition being held in Europe and then the United States the following time.

Thosaigh an comórtas Dé hAoine agus ar dtús bhí na Stáit Aontaithe chun tosaigh. Ach bhí na himreoirí Eorpacha níos fearr agus bhuaigh siad an comórtas. Bhí seacht bpointe idir na foirne ag an deireadh.

The competition started on Friday and at the start the United States led. But, the players from Europe were better and they won the competition. There was seven points between the teams at the end.

Is iad Nás na Ríogh seaimpíní Chill Dara Chamógaíochta tar éis dóibh an lámh in uachtar a fháil ar Bhaile Droichead Sheáin sa chluiche ceannais i Claonadh ar an Domhnach 30 Meán Fómhair. Ag an deireadh bhí ceithre cúilín eatarthu ach ní hé an sceál iomlán. Sa dara leath tháinig Baile Droichead Sheáin ar ais i ndiaidh bheith sé chúilín chun deiridh go cúilín amháin.

Naas are Kildare Camogie champions after getting the upper hand over Johnstown Bridge in Clane on Sunday the 30th September. At the end there was four points between them but that isn’t the full story. In the second half, Johnstown Bridge staged a comeback from six points behind to just one.

Bhuamar 4-6 go 0-14 ar an lá, agus ghlac captaen na foirne Kelly Perkins leis an gCorn. Comhghairdeas le gach imreoir agus ár mbainisteoirí Liam Ryan agus Sinéad Keogh atá théis obair dian a dhéanamh le fada. Freisin bhí laochra an chluiche againn le Sarah Cullen.

We won by 4-6 to 0-14 on the day and team captain Kelly Perkins collected the cup. Congratulations to all players and our managers Liam Ryan and Sinéad Keogh, who have put in trojan work for a long time. Also, we had the player of the match in Sarah Cullen.

Ghlac iarlaochra ó thrí cinn de na foirne ar imir Miller dóibh, Éire, Celtic agus Manchester United, páirt sa chluiche ar son na carthanachta agus mhuintir Miller.

Déantar go leor cainte faoin stuaim a bhíonn ag foireann na bhfear ag Áth Cliath agus iad i seilbh na liathróide ach bhí mná Átha Cliath gach pioc chomh maith leo inné.

There is a lot of talk about Dublin’s men self-control in possession of the ball but Dublin’s women were equally as good on Sunday.

Bhí an chomhimirt roimh chúl Carla Rowe ar fheabhas ar fad agus an pas ceart á thabhairt i gcónaí le linn na gluaiseachta sin, ach is ag deireadh an chluiche is fearr a léirigh siad an taithí atá acu.

The team work before Carla Rowe’s goal was excellent with the right pass always given during the movement, but it was at the end of the game they best demonstrated their experience.

Tá meas tuillte acu / They are worthy of respect.

Ros Comáin V Gaillimh 2018

Mar a tharlaíonn sé, ba é seo an ceathrú huair a chasfaidh Ros Comáin agus Gaillimh ar a chéile sa chluiche ceannais le trí bliana anuas mar bhí athimirt ag teastáil chun na foirne a scaradh óna chéile in 2016, agus Gaillimh a rinne an beart an geábh sin. Anuraidh, ba iad na Gaillimhigh rogha na n-údar chun an chraobh a thabhairt leo arís ach tháinig Ros Comáin aniar aduaidh orthu agus rinne siad scrios. Níor tharla sé seo an bhliain seo. Beidh athas ar Kevin Walsh agus a imreoirí le 46 craobhacha mar an gcéanna le Maigh Eo í gConnacht.

As it happens this was the fourth time that Roscommon and Galway have played each other in the final over the past three years as they have played a replay in 2016 with Galway winning on that occasion. Last year, Galway were the favourites to win the championship but Roscommon came back and caused an upset. This didn’t happen this year. Kevin Walsh and his players will be happy to have won 46 championships – the same as Mayo

Cuairt ó TG4 go CLG Nás na Ríogh

On Friday 18th May, Naas GAA hosted TG4, who are putting together a programme about the close links between GAA clubs and local Gaelscoileanna. With the permission of the school’s principal, almost 30 students spent the day in the grounds playing games under the expert coaching of David Murphy from Kildare GAA and being interviewed for the show which will “air” later this year, in September/October.

12 clubs nationwide were selected and we were delighted that our club was one of these. The close links between local Irish groups like Sult na Sollán, the Gaelscoil and CLG Nás na Ríogh, made our club an ideal candidate for inclusion in the show. Micheál ó Muircheartaigh will introduce every club and give a short history including key events of each club. All the students involved will travel to a recording studio to take part in further recordings in early June.

We would like to thank Tommy Loughran, Owen L’Estrange, Mr. Diarmuid O’Chonghaile and Múinteoir Niamh Nic Choinceanainn for helping to create such a positive impression of our club.

Comhghairdeas do na daltaí go léir a ghlac páirt sa chlár. Maith sibh.

Go Games: Tá na Go Games ar ais arís an bhliain seo. Cuireann sé iallach ar na himreoirí bheith ag obair níos crua agus ag an am céanna cumas a chur ar a scileanna.

Bhí foireann camógaíochta faoi a deich ag imirt in aghaidh CLG Na Sollán ar an Domhnach. Ba shamplaí maithe iad na cluichí sin den dea-iománaíocht. Bhí na cailiní an-aclaí agus bhuaigh siad trí chluiche in aghaidh a n-aon. Ádh mór orthu agus ar na meantóirí.

Go Games: The Go Games are back again this year. It allows players to work harder and at the same time to increase their competence.

The U10 camogie team was in action last Sunday against Sallins GAA. The games were a great advert for good hurling. The girls were very fit and won three games to one. Well done to the players and the mentors.

Céard faoi na Cait a chaill an chéad dá chluiche sraithe agus roinnt daoine den tuairim gurb é deireadh ré a bhí i ndán dóibh? Bhuel tá a bhfreagra tugtha acu ar an gcaint sin. Tá siad ar bharr na sraithe iomána arís an bhliain seo leis an bua in aghaidh Tiobraid Árann, 2-23 : 2-17. Tá cúpla saol fós fághtha ag na Cait agus iad ag feabhsú cluiche i ndiaidh cluiche. Tá óige agus taithí mhór acu anois.

What about the Cats who lost the first two league games and some people were of the opinion that the end of their reign awaited them. They have given their answer to the question. They are on top of the hurling league again this year with a win over Tipperary, 2-23 : 2-17. They still have a few lives left and getting better game after game. They have youth and experience now.

Ceiliúradh ar Bhratach Thrídhathach na hÉireann

Dé Céadaoin, 7ú Márta, bhí breithlá ag an mbratach náisiúnta. 170 bliain ó shin i bPort Láirge, d'ardaigh Thomas Francis Meagher an bhratach thrídhathach den chéad uair - tá ár mbratach náisiúnta bunaithe ar bhratach na Fraince! Bíonn bratach na hÉireann le feiceáil sna clubanna Gaelach ar fud na tíre agus an tseachtain seo chaite (Seachtain na Gaeilge) bhí sí ar foluain go bródúil.

Wednesday, 7th March, was the birthday of the national flag. 170 years ago in Waterford, Thomas Francis Meagher raised the Tricolour for the first time - our national flag is based on the French flag! The Irish flag can be seen in Irish clubs throughout the country and last week (Seachtain na Gaeilge) it was flying proudly.

Bhí Pop-Up Gaeltacht na nÓg i CLG Nás na Ríogh i rith Seachtain na Gaeilge. Tá iarrachtaí móra ar bun ag grúpa nua pobail ansin an Ghaeilge a chur chun cinn in ár gceantar. Buíochas do Sult Óg don seisiún ceoil.

A youth Pop-Up Gaeltacht took place in Naas GAA during Seachtain na Gaeilge. The new group are trying hard to promote Irish in our community. Many thanks to Sult Óg for providing the music.

Eanáir 29ú – Feabhra 4ú, 2018

 

Chuir tús an deireadh seachtaine seo chaithe le sraith iomána Allianz agus seachtain i ndiaidh Lá Fhéile Pádraig a imreofar an cluiche ceannais. Idir an dá linn, beidh na comórtais chraoibhe tríú leibhéal againn agus na cluichí deireanacha i gcomórtais na gclubanna. Ciallaíonn sé sin go mbeidh dhá chluiche beagnach gach seachtain ag cuid maith imreoirí. Cruthaíonn sé deacrachtaí mór go leor do na h-iomreoirí ach don lucht féachana is rud breá é.

Last weekend was the start of the Allianz hurling series and a week after St Patrick's Day we will see the finals being played. In the meantime, we will have the third level competitions and the final games in the club competitions. This means that a lot of players will have two games almost every week. It creates great challenges for the players but for the viewers, it’s a good thing.
