We qualified for the quarter finals of the senior championship on Saturday last as a result of Longford Slashers’ win over Carrickedmond. We now await the draw next weekend to see who our opponents will be. This is our first senior quarter final since 2012 so well done to all.

Michael Courtney, James O’Neill, Gabriel Higgins, Declan Donnelly, Tom McGee (0-1), Micheál Kane, Mike Kiernan, David Collum, Kevin Whitney, David Cassidy (0-6, 3f), Mark Breslin (1-0), Johnny Connell (0-3, 2f), James McCann, Paul Donnelly (0-1), Brian O’Connor

Best of luck to Darren Smith, Graham Lee and the squad in the next round of the championship tonight, Wednesday August 26th at 7pm in Monaduff against Longford Slashers. Well done to David Collum on being selected as the junior team captain for the year. Belated well done also to Paddy Collum who was selected as senior team captain and Pauric Gill as vice-captain.
The club extends sympathy to the families and friends of Eva Dooner (Rooskey, sister of Phil Hagan, Kilnashee), Des Cole (UK, late of Gaigue), John Campbell (UK, late of Clonaugh) and Patrick Reilly (Abbeylara, brother of Mary Mimnagh, Drumlish). Everyone at the club was saddened to learn of the passing of Eileen Cooney last week. We extend our deepest sympathy to Minor Club President Johnny and sons Ciarán, Seán and Diarmuid, who all have contributed so much to this club on and off the field, and to the wider Cooney and Brady families and large circle of friends. It was also with great regret that we heard of the passing of two former players recently; Frank McVeigh, Fardromin and Charlie Shivnen, Mohill (who played whilst stationed as a Garda in Drumlish in the late 60s/early 70s). We extend our deepest condolences to their respective families and friends. Solas na bhFlaitheas orthu go léir.
