Gameweeks 3-9 Report (May-June 2022)

It was very tight at the top of the GAA Rounders Senior Men’s All-Ireland Championship after Gameweek 9 at the end of June with Erne Eagles in first place on 23 points having won four games from five. The Heath and Cuchulainn Rounders were both on 18 points with 3 wins and one loss and Carrick Emmets were undefeated on 15 points after 3 victories from 3 games. Limekiln were seemingly out the running with 2 wins and 3 losses as were both Adamstown and Breaffy with 1 triumph and 4 defeats, although Glynn Barntown, having only lost 2 games were still in with a chance with 1 victory. Skryne had only played one game and forfeited one. [References: S-2]

Gameweeks 10-13 Report (July 2022)

A series of big games between the top clubs left Cuchulainn and Erne Eagles out in front with 33 points from 6 wins in 7 games apiece. The next four places were very close with Carrick Emmets in third on 30 points from 4 wins and 1 draw from 7 games; Limekiln on 29 points from 4 wins and 3 losses; The Heath on 26 points from 4 wins and 2 losses; and Glynn Barntown on 2 wins and 1 draw from their 6 games were on 23 points. Teams out of the running were adamstown on 2 wins from 7 games; Breaffy with a single win from 7 games and Skryne with 6 losses. [References: S-2]

Gameweek 14 Report (7 August 2022)

Skryne lost by only 4 runs to 6 to Glynn Barntown as they finished with improved form especially defensively. The narrow win left Glynn Barntown in with an outside chance of making the Semi-Finals if they won versus Adamstown in their final game and LImekiln and Carrick Emmets both lost, although Glynn Barntown would need a massive win to overhaul Carrick’s run rate in order to finish above them in the tie-breaker.

Gameweek 15 Report (14 August 2022)

Cuchulainn took the 2022 GAA Rounders Senior All-Ireland Championship Men’s League title after defeating Limekiln Rounders 20-2 having played only two Innings to Breaffy’s four. The Co. Carlow team had a very slight Run Rate advantage over Co. Cavan’s Erne Eagles to take the honours after both clubs finished with seven wins and one loss in their eight games. Erne Eagles had a 28-8 victory over Co. Dublin’s Limekiln in the Final Gameweek, with four innings played by Erne. Those two clubs were joined in the All-Ireland Semi-Finals by The Heath of Co. Laois and Carrick Emmetts of Co. Monaghan after The Heath won by 20-17 in the gamde between the two clubs in Gameweek 15. In the other game Co. Wexford’s Glynn-Barntown won 33-10 versus Co. Dublin’s Adamstown but failed to overcome Carrick Emmetts better Run Rate after the two finished levels on points. [References: S-1 and S-2]

ABOUT GAA ROUNDERS

Rounders is an Irish and British version of Softball and Baseball, and thought to be the ancestor of both. It was first codified in Ireland as part of the Original GAA Charter of 1884, but not organised until 1958. It is a Bat and Ball (also known as Safe Haven) sport whereby the batter attempts to hit a ball thrown at him or her by a pitcher or bowler and then attempts to run around the bases back home.
