Intermediate League: 
Our seniors played twice in the last week. The first outing was battle to the very end to earn an injury time point in Corduff last Wednesday night. Although we got off to the worst possible start by going 3 goals down and the loss of a player and a Goal due to very controversial decision making by the referee and umpire, however the lads produced huge Character to bounce back and show that famous Inniskeen never say die attitude. 
Even at the final whistle with the scores level at 4-10 to 2-16, we felt disappointed that we left the points in Corduff.
The Second outing on Saturday night seen the lads play Clones in Pairc Grattan. It was a good bounce back after the championship defeat against them and we ran out comfortable winners in the end by a score line of 1-14 to 0-10.
Both results see us maintain our 3rd position in the league on 17 points with the next fixture at home to Cremartin on the 6th.

Intermediate Championship: 
Thankfully we have a second bite of the cherry this year; we take on Aughnamullen this Sunday at 1.45pm in Corduff. Clearly the result against Clones in our last outing does not reflect the effort and dedication but in this year by the players and Management, they are eager to get back out and produce a performance to take them into the next round. 
Aughnamullen as usual will put up a fierce fight to the end so the lads will have to be on top form.
Please come out in numbers to push the guys on.

Senior Hurlers: 
Our guys had no game this week due to Clontibret giving the points last Thursday evening. 
The Points sees us finish second in the league which sets us up with a Home Semi against Monaghan in Pairc Grattan tonight (Thursday) @ 7pm.
A win will see us against either Blaney or Truagh who play the other.
Again please come out and show your support to the lads.
