Our Senior team played Rathcline in the Division 1 league on Wednesday evening last. Rathcline had the better start to the game and went in at the break leading by 0-9 to 0-5. Rathcline started the second half as they ended the first before Killoe eventually got into the game in the final quarter and finished with a draw with a final score of Killoe 0-17 to Rathcline 1-14.
On the same evening our Junior team played Fr. Manning Gales in the second round of the Junior Championship. We lead at the break by 0-9 to 0-5 and in the end came out with a win on a scoreline of 1-13 to 1-10.
On Saturday evening we played Colmcille in the final of the Gilmore Cup in Ballinalee. We started off very well before Colmcille rallied and they went in at the break leading on a scoreline of Killoe 1-5 Colmcille 1-8. Killoe got it hard to get back into the game and Colmcille pulled away. The final score was Colmcille 2-13 Killoe 1-10.
