Intermediate Championship – Our second game of the intermediate championship against Sean Connolly’s takes place next Sunday August 9th at 2.30pm in Drumlish. The lads will be hoping to make it two wins out of two which would see us set up for a semi-final spot. Best of luck to all involved.

League Division 2 – Well done to the lads who had a comprehensive victory over Legan in the league on Friday night. The game finished 6-10 to 0-06 with some impressive scores from Rathcline.

Junior Championship – After our absence from the junior championship for the last few years the junior squad got together for our game against Ardagh on Sunday. Players of old dusted off their boots joining some new faces for a great win. The game finished 2-22 to 1-06. Well done to Seamie O’Brien and his squad. Next up for the juniors is Mostrim next Sunday August 9th at 12pm in Mostrim.

Clonbonny hosts intermediate championship game – Next Friday night August 7th Clonbonny is host to Cashel V Grattans at 7.45pm in the intermediate championship. With wins for the two teams already both teams will be hoping for victory which might put them one step closer to a semi-final spot.
