INTERMEDIATE FOOTBALL(picture 1 victorious Intermediate Footballers,missing from picture Daragh Lyons),(picture 2 Captain Aaron Donnelly holding Cup aloft)
Last Sunday night we travelled the short distance to the Fraher Field, to play Colligan in the Western Final of the 2017 Intermediate Championship, this was a very close encounter, with hard physical play the order of the game and our lads were not found wanting as they seem to enjoy what was put in front of them. There was never more than 3 points between the teams in the 68 minutes of the game and in the end we came out on top by just the bare minimum in what was a great win for the club after a season of disappointment in the hurling championship.On the negative side of last nights victory was the injury to Daragh Lyons at the end of the game, we wish Daragh all the best in his recovery. Well done to all concerned
