Senior Team: Our seniors have a very important league match this Friday evening at 8.30pm in Monaduff against Mostrim. Please show your support.

Reserve Championship: Our Reserves were knocked out of the championship on account of their 2-15 to 2-7 defeat away to Granard last Sunday afternoon. Unfortuantely two great goals by Gearóid Nertney and Scott Howe in the second half were unable to spur the team on to victory and Granard ran out comfortable winners in the end. There is one more fixture to fulfil in the group, which is at home to Ballymahon this Sunday, the 25th at 2.30pm. The team and scorers were as follows:

Michael Heslin, Darren Cauley, Darren Smith, Aaron McGee, Declan Donnelly, Stephen Cosgrave, Ruairí Carthy (0-1), Anthony Kane (0-1), Kevin Whitney, Micheál Kane, Gearóid Nertney (1-0), Seán Diffley, Gary Connell, Scott Howe (1-4,(4f)), James McCann.

Substitutions used: Francis Lennon, Anthony McKeon, Seán Breslin, Cathal Howe (0-1), Barry Downes.
