We suffered a bad defeat on Saturday last to Longford Slashers in the first round of the championship on a scoreline of 2-16 to 0-8. It was always going to be difficult against last year’s county finalists but our cause was not helped with injuries to Dean Cosgrave, Pauric Gill and Darren Farley the week before the match. We wish the lads a speedy recovery along with Derek McCormack and Nigel Kiernan who had to retire injured during the game. The team and scorers were as follows:
Aiden Gray, John Paul Farley, Emmet Noonan, Derek McCormack, Mark Hughes, Eoin Keane (0-1), Nigel Kiernan, Liam Lynch, Paddy Collum (0-1, ’45) Cian Cassidy (0-2), Seán Whelan, Anthony Kane (0-2), Martin Cassidy (0-2, 2f), Podge Gill, Conor Keenan.
Mark Duffy, Cian Brady, James Noonan, Ryan Crowe, Stephen Cosgrave
The next fixture is this Friday, August 14th at 8pm against Carrickedmond in McGann Park, Kenagh in the second round of the Senior Championship. There will be a limited number of tickets available so please keep an eye on social media regarding their distribution
