We suffered defeated at the hands of Moyle Rovers in the opening round of the county championship last Saturday. We did well in the first half and were well in touch with only 1 point between the sides. However Moyle came out strong after the break and opened up a 6 point lead after 10 minutes. That was the cushion they needed to prevail 3-9 to 0-9. Our next game is on Sunday 19th September vs Cahir in Boherlahan
