The focus for this and the past few weeks has now turned to the county senior quarter finals and our upcoming clash with St Brendans. This should be an unique occasion given the prize at stake but also the added ingredient of the familiarity of the players with each other with many having competed together at schools and county level. Add in the opening clash of Austin Stacks and Dingle and a bumper crowd is expected to attend – it all kicks off @ 6 pm with our game throwing in @ 7.45 – extra time in both games will be played in the event of a draw at the end of normal time.

We went down to Ardfert in the Coiste Tra Lí town league semi final on Sunday in Strand Road; we faced the breeze in the first half and went in at half time trailing on a score line of 2-06 to 0-05 – our scorers were John McGrath with 3 and Tom Hoare and Gearóid Savage with one apiece.
On the resumption we took the game to Ardfert but though we managed to eat into the lead, we failed to bridge the gap and lost out eventually by three points, 2-10 to 1-10.
