Senior Footballers: 
Our senior team when down to a strong enough Truagh outfit last week by a score line of 1-15 to 0-13.
Truagh got off to a blistering start after ten minutes which saw them take the lead with a score line of 1-07 to 3 points. However the lads hung in with a few points from Paul, Ronan, Colm Meegan and Mixie Lennon. That got them to half time trailing by 1-08 to 0-05. 
And as Shown on a few occasions this season the guys kicked into gear in the second half to make a real contest of it. With ten minutes to go we had them pegged back to 1-11 to 13 points, courtesy of points from Paul, Ronan and Mattie McKenna. 
However the resurgence hit a wall in the 54th minute when Mickie Fitzpatrick was sent to the line for a second yellow card. 
Truagh ran out eventual winners; however the lads can take a lot from the game. We are still in 5th place in the league, however with 2 games in hand on our closest rivals, so all is not lost. 
Team: Pauric Dowdall, Alan Ryan, Anto Keenan, Trev Hillard, Mixie Lennon (0-01), Micky Fitz, Padraig Garland, Gerry McArdle, Seamy Loftus, Robbie Lorenze, Mattie Mc Kenna (0-01), Eugene McArdle, Ronan Meegan (0-05), Paul Meegan (0-05) and Colm Meegan (0-01).
