Commiserations to our under 19 footballers who missed out on a county title in the cruelest of ways in a penalty shoot out last weekend. A goal just before half time from James Treacy added to earlier scores from Luke Shanahan (3) & Pat Ryan gave us a 4 point lead at the interval over our opponents Cappawhite Gaels. 2 further scores for Luke & 1 for Sean Ryan saw the gap out to 6 midway through the second period but the tide turned in favour of Cappawhite then as equalized 5 minutes into injury time to set up extra time. Extra time saw 1 further point from each side with James Griffin pulling off a great penalty save also with the final score after extra time of 1-8 each. The lottery of penalties ultimately went in favour of Cappawhite 4 to 3. Well done to the players & management on their effort throughout the year.


We still await to see who our opponents are in the mid semi final after last weekend's preliminary semi final was postponed
