Round 8, against Castleisland Desmonds goes ahead in Connolly Park on next Sunday afternoon at 3pm.Desmonds, like ourselves, are in the bottom half of the League table and, like ourselves, will be going all out for victory.

B FOOTBALL: Our B team’s game in the Division 5 Shield competition against Rathmore B. in Connolly Park has now been brought forward to Friday evening (2nd June) with a 7pm start

THE C TEAM: With O’Rahillys withdrawing from the competition we have one  more round to play in the Co. League – at home to Laune Rangers on w/e 18th June.

THE D TEAM: Our D team were already warming-up in Connolly Park for our round 4 Co. League game on last Sunday afternoon (28th May) when news came through that Tarbert were conceding as they could not field a team. This still leaves us with just one game played in this five round competition to date (a brilliant win against Scartaglin by 5-14 to 1-1 in round 2) Our 5thand final round game is away to Clounmacon on w/e 18th June. No details have yet come to hand about our postponed games against Duagh and Beaufort.

MINOR FOOTBALL: After a four points defeat (2-12 to 0-14) by Cork in the Munster Quarter Final in Páirc Uí Chaoimh a few weeks ago (11th May) the two sides will meet again in the Munster Final which takes place in Austin Stack Park on this Friday evening (2nd June) at 7.30pm. We wish the team, including our own six players on the panel (Ben Murphy, Daniel Kirby, Paddy Lane, Ronan Carroll, Ryan O’Driscoll and Seán Óg Brosnan), and the Team Manager, our own Wayne Quillinan, every success on the night.
