Senior Club Notes 1st August 2016

We kicked off our senior championship campaign on Sunday last against Clonguish in glorious conditions in Edgeworthstown. After a fine first half performance which saw us leading 1-9 to 9 points at half time, Clonguish finished the stronger to record victory on a score of 21 points to 1-14. Well done Clonguish. We are out in round 2 this coming weekend against Longford Slashers with the game in Abbeylara on Sunday evening at 6.30pm.

Our junior reserve team contested the league final on Monday evening last. Please see results section or social media for score line which was not available at time of printing.
