Reserve Footballers: 
Unfortunately we were forced to give the points to Aughnamullen last week as a result of the Monaghan county board, who fixtured the game on the same day as the Ulster Intermediate pre season league semi final. 
We officially requested to Monaghan Co board that they moved the game to an alternative date; however our request fell on deaf ears which resulted in us having to throw the match.
This has been really unfortunate as the guys have been putting in a huge effort pre season and missed the opportunity to put points on the board on this occasion.

Quinns Corner Ulster pre season league: 
Our Guys defeated Urney St Colmcilles in the Semi final last Sunday by a single point margin.
The win leaves us with a final show down against Dungannon; however the date and venue have not yet been set at this point. Please look for confirmation on our facebook site for date and Bus times etc.
