An End of Season tribute by Tiernan Dolan

End of Season Tribute by Tiernan Dolan

And so it came to pass, that our  season came to an end.

One long, lonely, shrill whistle was all it took. Game over, season done.

Supporters bowed their heads, pulled down their woolly hats & wept silently – comforting one another,  they departed their cathedral of thrills and spills, dreams and nightmares.

Soon the floodlights would be dimmed and all the land covered in the darkness of a long, bleak winter.

Frost and snow will cover the lush green carpet.  Gales and storms will replace the cheers and witty chants while red and black ghosts will surely stalk the tunnel.

But the philosopher of the roundy ball predicted that soon the snows will melt and the sun will strengthen & brighten and hope will again be restored as we awaken to follow Fenn to the promised land in season 2018.

C’mon de Town!!!

 




A tribute to retiring Town hero, Noel Haverty

Mon Oct 9th 2017

By lifelong Town fan, Cathal McGuinness

Saturday brought an end to another season with The Town finishing 5th (4th really, Shelbourne got 2 points by default). The planning for next season will begin straight away for Neale Fenn with a few players coming & a few going. Unfortunately one almost certainly going is Kildare man & former underage international Noel Haverty due to work commitments.

Noel has been one of my favourite Town players in his almost 6 seasons with us.

He put his head in places where most wouldn’t put their boot and he gave 100% & more in every game. When Noel entered the pitch he was ready to go to war, and more times than not he was patched up so he could play. Anyone that thinks a non local doesn’t give the same as a local should look at Noel!

On behalf of myself (& all Town fans I’m sure), I’d like to thank Noel & wish him well in life, work & sport.

I think Clane has been pretty good to Longford with Glenn Ryan also from there, and he too is fondly remembered here in Longford! Best of luck Noel!
