Clonkill 0-17 Crookedwood 1-8. We took on Clonkill in the latest round of Division 1 hurling on Friday evening last.

Crookewood 0-18 Ringtown 1-5. Our first round of the Junior Championship proved a fruitful one as we collected the two points on offer after a comfortable victory over our near neighbours. The final score line does not tell the full story of the game as we held a slender three-point lead at half time. However, our superior scoring power saw us pull away in the last ten minutes to record a deserved victory. The most plasing aspect of this win was the 0-11 scored from play and the wide array of scorers, with all six forwards getting on the scoresheet. Team; Alan O Mara, Mossy Brennan, Kevin Orme, Enda Murray, Ger McGovern, Seamus Savage (0-1), Diarmaid Hyland, Noel Kiernan(0-1), Andy Boyhan, Brendan McCarthy (0-7), Ger Brennan (0-2), Richie Crowley (0-3), Cian Yourell (0-1), Ciaran McGovern (0-1), J.J. Brennan (0-1). Subs used; Emmet Feerick (0-1) for C.Yourell, Antoin Savage for G.McGovern
Well done to Shane McGovern and the Westmeath hurlers on their win over Meath in Round 2 of the Joe McDonagh Cup. Unfortunately, our footballers couldn't replicate the feat and were beaten by Meath in the O Byrne Cup final.
