U14 Boys: Div 3
Renmore AFC 2 - Corofin 1
U14 Boys played Corofin B with a bare bones squad and came away with a last gasp win making it a 100% home win record. Nathan Kenny scored his 6th goal of the season to get Renmore on their way before Corofin hit back against the run of play to equalize.
Renmore were on top for most of the second half and just as it was looking to be a frustrating day for the home side a Leon Cussen free kick shot past the Corofin keeper for a last minute winner.
An excellent team performance that saw all the players step up to the plate to give a never give up performance.
Team sponsored by Duggans (Spar) of Renmore.
Kiltullagh FC 1 - 6 Renmore AFC
What a fantastic win for the U12 girls last Friday night (10th Feb 2023). A crisp night under floodlights at a great venue that has seen much progressive development.
Kiltullagh Pioneers FC should be very proud of what has been achieved over the years at the club with so many other clubs wanting to use their excellent pitch facilities.
Anyway back to the match facts. The girls played as a well disciplined and sporting team which saw Abby Lohan grab a hat trick, Alice Delaney score a brace and Emily Kelly chipping in to seal the win.
This U12 side has shown this season how they keep working for each other on and off the pitch and the whole squad steps up when its needed.
Well done Girls!
The Renmore AFC Academy met with The Bons Secours Galway on Saturday morning to announce their collaboration.

Established in 1954 and part of Irelands largest Health Care Group since 1999, the Bons Secours Independent Acute Hospital provides a wide range of surgical and medical services.
Premier League Result
West Utd 2-5 Renmore
A fourth win on the bounce as it ended with goals from Luke Smith x 2, Luke Byrnes, Keith Fitzgerald & Harry Rogers.
An excellent league result in the Swamp over the weekend as the hosts certainly piled on the pressure at stages in this match and hit the woodwork on no less than 3 occasions. But Renmore were resolute and clinical in their finishing and secured the points to keep them progressing in this league.
Next up for Renmore is the last 32 Connacht Cup action at home to Castlerea Celtic on Saturday at 2pm in Renmore. Thanks to all who came out to support the team today it was fantastic!!
All support welcomed to the Swamp on Sunday as Renmore will hope to keep their good form going.
After the 2-1 win over Bearna Na Forbacha Aontaithe in the Connacht Cup Renmore will play Castlerea Celtic at home in the last 32.
Thanks to all who supported the lads at our last match.
Renmore AFC U18's recently travelled to Sligo to play Abbey United in the second round of the Connacht Cup at Ray MacSharry Park. 2 down within 15 minutes but a five minute spell before the end of the first half saw Renmore score three without reply, eventually winning 6- 4.
A hat trick by Niall Kirton and further goals from winger Mikey Hynes, Brendan Feerick and Michael Casey secured the win. Well done to all especially stand-in goalkeeper Harry Greaney.
The Rescheduled Connacht Cup game is on Saturday at 2pm in Renmore. Our Senior A men's team will take on Barna in the third round of this prestigious competition. A home fixture that promises to be a tougher game than it appears on paper as Barna sit in second place in Division 2. So please come along and support our maroon boys!
RENMORE AFC U8's & U10's had a great time over last weekend being hosted by Kiltullagh Pioneers & Kilshanvey Utd respectively. Thank you to all for the hospitality shown to us.
Corrib Celtic 1 - 2 Renmore AFC
Renmore Senior A Men made it 3 games unbeaten and started the year with a win against a dogged Corrib Celtic side in Annaghdown.
In a feisty encounter with both teams needing points at the bottom of the table it was Renmore who started brighter and after 9 minutes Sammy Omokua scored as good a team goal as you will see this season starting from Dave McDonagh in goal, some outstanding link up play from Nathan Healey and Ryan Corcoran saw Luke Byrnes cut in from the left and play a ball into Luke Smyth who's perfect layoff fell to Sammy who provided a clinical finish.
Corrib struck back 5 mins later when a loose pass on the edge of the box and some lacklustre defending gifted Corrib a chance which was put away well. Both sides battled hard and Renmores defence of Keith Fitzgerald, Jack Greaney, Shane Trill and Cathal Burke were immense.
With 5 minutes to go a lovely run by Leigh Nolan resulted in a corner. Ryan Corcoran whipped in a great cross and coming back from injury substitute Rob Mangan glanced a fabulous header into the corner to put Renmore 2-1 up.
Corrib kept pushing until the final whistle but all long balls were cleared brilliantly by the returning Paddy Gannon and Renmore held on to clinch a valuable 3 points which they dedicated to Paddy McKernon who's operation went very well yesterday morning thankfully.
Next up is Connacht Cup action on Saturday at 2pm in Renmore vs Barna. All support greatly appreciated!
Manchester United Women star Aoife Mannion took time out to visit us at Renmore AFC during the Christmas. What an epic role model she is. It was great to showcase how much the club has grown since her last visit 5 years ago, with a huge increase in female participation since then.
Aoife's Man Utd Profile
A high-quality and versatile defender, Aoife brings Champions League experience to the group, having been involved in the competition with both Birmingham and Manchester City over the years.
A youth team player both at Birmingham and Aston Villa, Mannion's start in senior football came with Villa, although she resigned for the Blues in 2013. In seven years at City, she made over 100 appearances, featuring in both domestic cup finals and the Champions League and also claiming a spot in the FA WSL Team of the Year for 2017/18 and 2018/19.
Aoife joined Manchester City in the summer of 2019 and received her first senior England call-up shortly afterwards, after progressing through the youth teams.
On 26 July 2021, Mannion signed a two-year contract with Manchester United. She helped keep a clean sheet on her Reds debut, playing the full 90 minutes a 2-0 win over Reading at Leigh Sports Village.
Mannion is eligible to represent both England, as the country of her birth, and Ireland, where both her parents are from.
At Renmore we believe that players like her can only create a path for those numbers to grow even more into the future. Thank you so much Aoife for joining us for a session and we wish you the very best for 2023 and all your team at Manchester United.
A BIG Thanks to photographer Don Soules for capturing some great 'shots' of the day!

RENMORE 2-1 CORRIB CELTIC
Renmore picked up 3 valuable points at home to a dogged Corrib Celtic side. Renmore started very well and went 1 nil up after a super run by Sammy Omokua who played a perfect pass into the path of Luke Byrnes who guided the ball past the keeper with a beautiful finish. Corrib equalized in the 2nd half and with 5 minutes to go Sammy was taken down in the box and Captain Keith Fitzgerald buried the penalty to win the game.
Next up is a home tie with Athenry next Sunday at 11am.
Thanks to our sponsors:

FAI U12 girls
Renmore AFC 4 - 1 Knocknacarra
Excellent performance and skills from the U12 girls as they locked horns with Knocknacarra at the weekend. Emily Kelly grabbed a couple of goals with Alice Delaney & Abby Lohan chipping in with a goal apiece. This was a fantastic team effort with the side really gelling well on the day.

U14 Division 3
Still unbeaten at home this season with the team in free scoring mode once again. Nathan Kenny started us off as a Hugo Lynagh double and Danny Wilson and Josh finished off the match.
Excellent football once again.
Be in no doubt this was a great match and a really valuable point against a top side, it ended 4-4 in atrocious conditions. Being 1-0 down it was a superb effort from Paddy McKernonthat brought parity and it was further goals from Rob Mangan and Nathan Healey that had Renmore 3-1 up at half time. After the restart Renmore scored a penalty with the impressive Sammy Omokua and it got better for the home side as Oranmore were reduced to 10 men with half hour to go. Oranmore, however are not contenders for league glory this year for no reason and came back strongly from this set back with 3 goals to level the scores. Renmore were themselves reduced to 10 men following another red card of their own this time. A great advert for football in our league with goals, drama and spectacle despite the weather. Shout out to our 1st team main sponsors this year Crowes Bar Bohermore, O'Reilly's bar Salthill and An Pucan. Local derby v Mervue Utd next Saturday at 3pm. All support greatly appreciated.

A massive shout out for this annual get together at the weekend, The Maree Oranmore FC Invitational. Another year that saw lots of underage teams from across the footballing community come together for the love of association football. Although the weather may have been wet and miserable the girls and boys involved from Renmore AFC certainly were not and had a great time!
The Maree Oranmore Invitational is sponsored by

U12 girls are sponsored by Mr Waffle
Renmore AFC 6 v 0 Moyne Villa
Still unbeaten at home this season and with Renmore captain Mike McGrath showing his goalie skills by stepping into the breach at the last minute this match could have gone pear shaped! However, a first clean sheet of the season at the weekend is testament to his performance and to the performance of his defence who were resolute all game. Hugo Lynagh scored a hat trick and Nathan Kenny grabbed a brace with Danny Wilson getting his 5th goal in 6 games. A marvellous team performance from all of the players involved. Well Done to all of our players and supporters on the day.
Renmore U13 Div. 5 lads were involved in a fantastic game of football recently as they hosted Maree-Oranmore. Winning 5-3 in a game that saw plenty of goal chances from both sides. Liam O’Donnell, Leon Clairon-Hardy x2, Brendan Day & Senan O’Neill all got on the scoresheet as Cillian King played a massive part in goal for Renmore to help "The Blues" to victory. Great football from both sides and a fantastic advert for underage soccerin Galway.

Two quick fire wins have helped Renmore Senior B to move up the Division 1 table as they beat Athenry B away at the weekend. Previously beating Cois Fharraige 2-0 at home the week before it looks like the team is clicking into gear after a slow start to the season.
Good luck in their next fixture against Moyne Villa on 4th November with a 7.45pm kick off away from home. Renmore will be looking to bounce back after their opening day loss to their upcoming hosts.
Two excellent results from the weekend as Renmore AFC U12 Girls won 5-1 against Athenry B. Renmore Goals at home from Alice Delaney 2, Emily Kelly 2 & Abby Lohan 1 gave an encouraging victory for the girls.
U12 Boys Merlin Woods v Renmore AFC finished on a scoreline of 5-2 to the visitors. Renmore AFC U12 navy team gave an exciting come back performance for all to see as they surged back from being 2-0 down at half time. Goal keeper Ronan had a notable performance between the sticks as he performed heroics to keep Merlin from adding to the two goals scored.
Renmore stormed back playing some inspired football as Ben and Anton both scored two each and Dylan scored 1. The team can be proud of their teamwork on the pitch and show a real camaraderie off and on it. Well Done to both sides on a terrific game of football.

U14 Boys had a super win in Division 3 on Saturday the 15th October at home by beating Corrib Rangers 3-1. Still remaining unbeaten at home is a good habit to keep and despite really challenging conditions they continue to put in spirited performances to make for an interesting season ahead. Leon Cussen scored another goal to take his tally to 4 from 4 games with a scorcher of a free kick to open the scoring. With sub Alex Iwasaki scoring the second after a Rangers equaliser Renmore took the game to their visitors from then on. Danny Wilson made it 3 - 1 to keep his scoring streak going as Renmore worked as a team to see the game out. Shout out to the combatitive Josh O'Reilly a real master class in winning the ball in midfield. Excellent overall team performance that will stand this side in good stead in future games.
With our Seniors facing an important away game to Salthill Devon this Friday in the Irish Cup (KO is 8pm) a quick report on how some of our underage sides did this weekend.
U13's B team sponsored by 'The Full Duck Cafe' won 4-1 versus Athenry on Saturday at home. Despite Renmore missing a penalty to open the scoring it was Senan O'Neil who scored late in the first half to get the show on the road. Leon Clairon-Hardy (x2) , Nathan Fondja added more goals to settle a highly competitive match enjoyed by all those watching. A special mention to goalie Cillian King an oustanding performance.
Our Mr Waffle sponsored side U13 'A' who play in Division 1 came out on the wrong side of a 2-1 result against visitors Colemanstown Utd also on Saturday morning. Going into an early 2-0 lead Renmore had to work hard to get back into the game but despite pulling one back in the last quarter of the game it wasn't to be and Colemanstown came away with the points.

FAI Junior Cup
Maree Oranmore FC 2 - 3 Renmore AFC
(After extra time)
Renmore are through to the 2nd round of the Irish Cup after a thrilling comeback away to Maree/Oranmore on Saturday. 2-0 down with 15 minutes to go Renmore pulled one back when pressure from Sammy Omokua caused one of the Oranmore defenders to send a ball back to the keeper which ended up straight in the back of the net.
Renmore pushed hard to get the equaliser and with the last kick of the game it came through makeshift centre forward Owen Folan. Extra time loomed and it was Sammy Omokua who clinched the winner after a fine pass from Goalkeeper Dave McDonagh to send the Renmore bench wild.
Travelling support was greatly appreciated and next up is a tough away trip Sunday at 11am away to St Bernards in Abbeyknockmoy.
22 women participated in their Player Development Plan 2 (PDP2) as part of the Women’s Coach Education Programme in 2022 in Galway at Eamonn Deacy Park. In the previous 8 months the women have completed their PDP1 + PDP2, Workshop with Niamh Fahey, Delivered weekly session plans & Women’s Coaching Group engagement.
Renmore AFC u12 girls were the lucky team selected to be put through their paces and were fantastic participant’s. Great day for the coaches and children with the The Galway Football Association allowing the excellent Eamonn Deacy Park to be used.
The PDP2 course allows Coaches to learn about the Player Development Plan and the development of players aged between 9-12 years. Coaches develop through discussion, observation, identifying, listening, questioning, recording and feedback. Coaches also plan, organise, implement and analyse their own coaching sessions.
With the football season well and truly back its a whole host of games we have scheduled for this Saturday.
An historic day on Sunday 18th September at home for Renmore AFC as we fielded our first female team in 20 years. Female sport has seen a huge surge in numbers of girls & woman taking up soccer over the past few years and Renmore were proud as a club to see the U12's representing us on the grass!
All square at half time at 1-1, Merlin Woods went ahead early in the second half and Renmore girls pushed all the way to get back on level terms but Woods scored a third to see out the game.
Good support from the sidelines is a sign of good things to come from the girls at this age level.
Good Luck to Marcella, Michelle and Barbara the management team with this talented group of girls.
Going one up nil up then conceding three in succession would sap the energy and confidence of most teams, but not this side. Leon Cussen gave Renmore the lead with a good finish but still went in 3-1 down at the half time change around.
Whatever was said at half time may be a closely guarded secret but what a change as Leon grabbed his second to add impetus to the home side. And with Daniel Wilson in imperious form scoring for fun everybody upped their game and the overall performance must have provided those watching great entertainment and encouragement for the season ahead.
Well done to this team and to all of our supporters and mentors on the day who helped this team to victory.
U12 Red team won their Connacht Cup Round 1 game against Moyne Villa Villa on penalties. A great advert for underage football as Liam O' Donnell scored in first half of extra time before Moyne Villa equalised to send the game to penalties which Renmore came out on top.
U12 Blue team won 2-1 as they beat Cregmore/Claregalway in their U12 Boys Navy league game. Ben Clifford & Darragh Healy scored as the Renmore back line held firm and Renmore were very unlucky not to add to their goal tally.
Renmore AFC 9 - 0 Manulla FC
Connacht Cup 1st Round
Renmore AFC U16 were up against Manulla from Mayo in the first round of the Connacht cup in Renmore on Sunday 18th September. Renmore scored from a Charlie Evans header. Luke O'Cualin added another before 20 minutes with Evan Healy adding another two to make it 4-0 at half time.
With further early goals from Daragh Finnerty and Juan Newell to put Renmore 6-0 up Ronan Barrett scored two more with another from Thomas McDonagh to finish the match off as Renmore progressed.
Full Duck Cafe sponsored U13's had a good start to their new season with a draw against St Bernards. Excellent footballing conditions saw both sides looking for the three points from the get go. St Bernards scored first from a header and Paddy McCarroll was having an inspired game in goal for Renmore, to keep St Bernards to a solitary goal.
Eanna Daly got Renmore back into the game with a volley after a good combo move from Liam Kelly and Oisin Gorham. This boosted Renmore as they went looking for the winner. And they thought they had won it late on when a Finn O'Reilly effort was ruled offside.
A fantastic game of football for both sides who gave their all.
A special mention must also go to Joe Considine for St Bernards who was injured during the match. Renmore players and coaches wish Joe all the best in his recovery and look forward to facing him in their next fixture together.
What a difference a week makes! From having a tough opening away fixture against Athenry in their first game of the season, Renmore 'A' had an historic 2-1 win against Galway Premier holders Salthill Devon. Well Done lads fantastic victory.
Renmore 'B' play Corofin away Saturday 11th September at 11am. Good Luck lads.

A fantastic day out for all teams that participated in the The Maree Oranmore FC Invitational Finals Day. A host of teams enjoyed the good weather and enthusiasm from their hosts. The event saw our Academy girls and boys in action throughout the day and they certainly showed some skills and had fun at the same time. Well done to all involved in this event which took some organising, from the parade, the games and the celebrations afterwards. A massive shout out to Tournament Director Ross Melville and St Columbas Credit Union.
Renmore Senior A assured themselves of Premier Division football for next season with a local derby win over Merlin Woods FC/Medtronic. A fantastic 3-0 win will see them facing the all new 21/22 season ahead with confidence and excitement. As someone said 'Renmore are back where they belong'.
Well done to manager Stuart and all the team and to the supporters who turned out today. A massive shout out also to An Pucan for all of their support for the team this season.
Please Support our Supporters!
Celebrations are still to come, watch this space!
Calling all Renmore AFC Supporters!
Western Hygiene Supplies Div 1 Renmore AFC v Merlin Woods FC this Saturday at 2pm.
A win for our boys at home this Saturday guarantees promotion to the Premier Division next season.
The boys need all our support this weekend! The lads would like to send their appreciation to their main team sponsor for the season An Pucan.
They are looking forward to celebrating the season after the final whistle on Saturday.
It's been a mystery that has stood for many years now. Just who is that mystery cat Terry the Tiger?
Many have thought that Galway United legend Ronan Coleman was double jobbing. Then there was the theory that maybe former United managers Sean Connor & Jeff Kenna were job sharing after their managerial tenures came to an end. And who knows where Nick Leeson is these days!??
All we know for sure is that a very svelte looking and welcoming Terry the Tiger was out and about with Renmore FC youngsters in Eamonn Deacy Park recently.
With Galway United flying high in Division 1 and playing highly entertaining football then why not come on down to Eamonn Deacy Park and support the 'Tribesmen' and say hello to Terry.
Whoever he may be!
