  • Former Roscommon Senior Football Captain Seán McDermott announced his retirement from inter-county football today Sunday January 6th, 2019. In a statement he said

    “Today I officially announce my retirement from inter-county football.

    It has been a great honour to play for Roscommon over the past 17 years, from minor level through to senior, and I have been privileged to have met, and played with, some great people along the way.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all players and management teams, past and present, whom I have been involved with and wish them all good health and success in the future.

    I would also like to sincerely thank my club Western Gaels for all their help and support throughout my time with Roscommon, and I look forward to playing with them for many years to come.

    To the Roscommon supporters; a massive thank you for all the support over the years, through good times and bad.

    Finally, to my family. I will be forever grateful for everything you have done for me. Your support, loyalty and understanding allowed me to play for Roscommon at the highest level, and for this, I thank you sincerely.

    I am looking forward to my next chapter in life, as I build on the success of the business, I have recently started in Ballaghaderreen, and which allows me to channel my passion and skills as a barber.

    It was a huge honour to play for Roscommon for so long and I have nothing but great memories.

    I am now looking forward to becoming a great supporter in the years ahead.

  • The Roscommon team to face Leitrim in Sunday's Connacht Senior Quarter Final has been named.

    Cathal Cregg captains the side from centre-forward in an attack led by Kerry native Conor Cox who makes his championship debut.

    The team in full is Darren O’Malley in goal, David Murray, Sean Mullooly and Conor Daly in the full back line, Niall Daly, Conor Hussey and Ronan Daly in the half back line, Tadgh O’Rourke and Shane Kiloran at midfield, Hubert Darcy, Cathal Cregg and Niall Kilroy in the half forward line and Ultan Harney, Conor Cox and Diarmuid Murtagh in the full forward line.

  • Roscommon manager Anthony Cunningham says this weekend's break in the Allianz national football league has come at the perfect time for some of their injured players.

    Last weekend, the Rossies picked up their first win of the when they defeated Clare, but they did lose Donie Smith to injury.

    However, Cunningham told the Roscommon Herald that the break will help Donie Smith and Conor Cox who could be available for the next round against Kildare.

    Andy Glennon and Shane Killoran are still out injured.

     

  • Roscommon manager Kevin McStay appears to be standing firm in his side's bid to play the Connacht Football Final at Dr Hyde Park.

    The game is due to be played there as per the rota system in Connacht, but there's been suggestions the fixture could be moved to McHale Park due to capacity and safety issues.

    Speaking after his side's semi-final win over Leitrim, McStay says his team will line-out at Hyde Park, and hopes whoever their opponents are will join them.

  • Roscommon Manager Kevin McStay has tonight named his team to play Cork in the final round of the Allianz National Football League Division 2.

    The game is scheduled to be played in Dr Hyde Park Roscommon at 3pm on Sunday.

    The announcement was made at the very well attended Club Rossie business event in the Abbey Hotel Roscommon.  

    Despite this weekend being a starred weekend of club games Kevin Mc Stay and his management team have released the maximum number of players back to their clubs and has just named a match day squad of 23 for Sunday’s game.

    Colm Lavin reclaims the number one jersey while Ultan Harney makes a welcome return after injury to take the centre halfback position. The half back line has totally changed from last week as Conor Daly replaces his brother Ronan at number 5 while Brian Stack moves from 6 to number 7 in place of Niall Daly.

  • Roscommon Senior football manager Anthony Cunningham says his players greatly miss human and team interaction since the squad disbanded.

    Cunningham led the Rossies to Connacht glory last year, becoming the first GAA manager to win senior titles - in both football and hurling - in different provinces, having previously led the Galway hurlers to the Leinster crown.

    This year, his side were joint-top of Division Two alongside Armagh and were pushing hard for promotion when the Covid-19 pandemic struck and the GAA shut down.

    Speaking to RTÉ Sport, Cunningham admitted that his players were finding life without football quite taxing.

    The Roscommon V Tyrone game throws-in at 5pm Saturday evening in Croke Park.

     

  • Roscommon senior football manager Kevin McStay has named his team to face Armagh in the fourth round All Ireland Senior Football Qualifier game to be played on Saturday in Portlaoise.

    The team features a number of changes to the one that started against Galway in the Connacht Final including starts for Ultan Harney, Cathal Cregg and Seán Mc Dermott. Making way for these are an injured Brian Stack while Fintan Cregg and Niall Kilroy are named elsewhere in the match day 26. 

    Seán McDermott makes a return to championship football after not featuring in this year’s Connacht championship. Seán is the most “capped” member of the panel with a total of 46 championship appearances since he made his debut against London in 2005. In fact, after coming on as a sub in that game he started every single championship game Roscommon played from 2005 up to and including the All Ireland Quarter Final Replay against Mayo in 2017.

    Next on that list is his Western Gaels club mate Cathal Cregg who will be making his 40th championship appearance on Saturday and has racked up 3 -43 in championship scores to date.

    Supporters will be delighted to see the return of Cathal Compton to mid field after coming off injured against Galway in the Connacht football final.

    The following players could not be considered due to injury, Brian Stack, Ciaran Lennon, Darra Pettit, Fergal Lennon, and Ronan Stack.

  • Roscommon Senior Football team manager Kevin McStay this evening named his team to play Down in the third round of the Allianz League Division Two in Dr Hyde Park Roscommon on Sunday next at 2pm.

    The team features a number of changes to the team that started against Tipperary last Sunday in Semple Stadium.
