After a very hectic week particularly for our dual senior players who will be delighted with a bit of recovery time to lick their wounds, we had two wins in the Intermediate football league when we overcame Corduff and Killanny and we also won the semi-final of the Senior Hurling Championship by defeating Carrickmacross HC, setting up a meeting with Monaghan Harps in the final on Sunday 7th August. 
Our Minors footballers drew with Na Mullai Sarsfields in the Minor Championship in a game marred by a bad injury to Padraig McGahon and we wish Padraig a very speedy recovery.

Training Saturday 11:00-12:00

We played against Cremartin last Saturday. The players tried very hard but came out the wrong side of the result. Training Tuesday 7:45 to 8:45.

We play against Monaghan harps this Saturday the 30th July in Pairc Grattan at 12:00. Training as usual Monday and Wednesday evenings. 

We played St Patrick's last Thursday evening. The team played very well. We were up against it coming near the end when we ended up playing with 13 men.
