It was a tough weekend for our firsts last weekend as they travelled to Galway to play Galweigans with a depleted squad due to injuries and other commitments, a late injury to Jack Foley before kickoff meant that we were minus him for the match too. The final score line didn’t reflect the match and Galweigans really capitalized on our mistakes. It was never going to be an easy fixture with so many new faces in the fold and we must commend the lads who played on the day. They never gave in and stuck it out until the very end. For now, it is a welcome break for the sore bodies to recuperate after a tough first half of the season. We will resume the league after Christmas and look forward to welcoming you all back to the sidelines in the new year!
Our seconds were set to play Thomond in Coonagh on Monday night but the match was conceded by Thomond on the day. They are set to play UL Bohs this weekend in Coonagh at 2.30pm.
The thirds continued their winning ways this weekend in their match v CastleIsland/Abbeyfeale in Coonagh on Saturday with a massive 41-0 win. It was a fantastic team display from the lads who have gone from strength to strength this season. We look forward to seeing what next weekend holds when they take on UL Bohs in Annacotty at 12 noon.
