Intermediate Championship Final 

All roads lead to Glennon Brothers Pearse Park this Sunday, October 9th when we face Ballymahon in the Intermediate Championship final at 1.45pm. The very best of luck to Fintan, Mick, Graham and the lads. Please come out and show your support. Also taking place on Sunday is the honouring of our 1997 senior championship winning team. We would like to thank the county board for this invitation to mark the 25-year anniversary. Thank you to the local businesses who have sponsored gear for the team ahead of the county final. Main club sponsors the Davis Brothers of Green Pasture Meats have sponsored a new set of jerseys; Niall Mulleady of The Mulleady Group, a set of tops; Cathal Quinn of Quinn’s Bar, a set of training shirts and Cathal O’Reilly of O’Reilly’s Bar, a set of polo shirts. Thanks also to Peter and Margaret Dillon of Dillon’s of Ballinamuck for sponsoring food for the players after training. 

Both villages and in between are well decorated thanks to Seamus Gallagher, Seamus Noonan, Dessie & Gary Connell and of course the residents and businesses for ensuring that there is lots of maroon and gold flying for the week. The club really appreciates this support from the parish.
