Hard luck to our Intermediate Ladies panel today who lost out to Tinahely 3-6 to 1-14 in the league final in Avondale on Sunday afternoon. It was anyone’s game and we battled hard but it was not to be. We now lift our heads and look forward to the Championship fully prepared. Our time will come

Well done to our own Mark Evans who performed well with the County U15’s at the weekend.

The County Under 15’s competed in the first series of games in the Alan Mangan Tournament in Offaly on Saturday afternoon with three games of twenty minute halves so over 140 minutes of football was played.

A comprehensive win against Leitrim in the first game was followed a comfortable win over Wexford (2) in the second game.

In the final game against Fermanagh the lads were seven points up with just 10 minutes left to play but conceded three goals in a five minute period and were unlucky then not to get an equaliser in the last minute with the opposition keeper pulling off unbelievable save. However there was many positives to take from today, this group of guys have shown excellent application over the past month in particular and the future is bright for this group.
