On Sunday we were treated to a football double-header as our Senior Men welcomed AGB in the morning and our Senior Ladies hosted Tinahely ladies in the afternoon.
Both these fixtures were the county finals in 2019, we had two cracking matches in store and they did not disappoint.
Our County Champions had the narrowest of victories fighting off a strong second half surge by their opponents and winning 1-12 to 1-11. Captain Tommy Kelly was at his high scoring best with 1-07, Ciaran McGettigan 0-02, John Crowe 0-01, Jordan Petticrew 0-01 and Stephen Duffy 0-01.
That’s 3 from 3 from our lads as they sit top of the Division 1 league table with a few tough away tests coming up in the next few weeks.
Our Senior Ladies got a well-earned draw with County Champions Tinahely. Tinahely got two goals which ultimately got them the draw. The score-line finished 2-3 to 0-09, Sarah Delahunt with 0-06 points, Saoirse O’Reilly 0-02, Jess Lyons 0-01, hopefully it will give our girls the confidence to push on this season.
The County Ladies also managed a draw against Down. Well done to our own Megan Dunne, Lucy Dunne, Niamh McGettigan, Sinead McGettigan, Clodagh Fox and Rioghna McGettigan.
