We travelled to Castleisland on Friday night last ( 13th) to play the locals in county league; in a below par performance, we were no match for the Desmonds boys who ran out deserving winners.
Coiste Trá Lí: We next play Na Gaeil in the semi final of this year’s league in Strand Road on Weds night next, 18th; we were unlucky losers to the same opposition in the opening round when going down by a point but with home advantage should be able to reverse the earlier result – Austin Stacks have already qualified for this year’s decider.
Fund raiser- Masters Challenge:
