In the quarter-final of the North championship, we play Borrris-Ileigh on Sunday in Dolla at 5.00pm. With emigration and injuries depleting resources, this will be a mammoth task for the team, so we are asking all supporters to get behind the team in Dolla. Admission is b y ticket with tap and go system also in operation.



In the first round of the championship, we lost 2-14 to 1-15 against Borris-Ileigh in Roscrea. Rain on a firm surface led to difficult underfoot conditions. MacDonaghs had the aid of the breeze in the first half, but it was Borris-Ileigh who struck the first major blow with a goal in the seventh minute. In the tenth minute, keeper Kevin Naughnane shipped a heavy tackle to the head, and he was forced to leave the field. Tristan Madden filled in as a temporary substitute until Kevin returned  to the fray in the twenty-third minute. After a slow start, MacDonaghs began to find their feet, and Oisín O’Meara raised a green flag in the fourteenth minute. At the interval, the Magpies led by 1-9 to 1-5.

On the resumption, the sides went point for point, and with forty-four minutes gone, Kilruane still held a four-point advantage. In the nineteenth minute, Ross Austin was forced to retire with a knee injury. Borris-Ileigh cut the gap to the minimum with fifty nine minutes gone and struck for the winning goal in the 60th minute. Despite late pressure, we couldn’t bridge the gap. In the second round, we face Ballinahinch this Thursday, 6th July, in Nenagh at 7.30pm.

Team: Kevin Naughnane, Sean Quinlan, Cormac Doheny, Ross Austin, Paddy Ryan, Tomás Hogan, Cormac Mannion, Rory Grace (0-2), Robert Austin (0-1), Jack Mulcahy (0-1), Brian O’Meara, Devlin Courtney (0-1), Conor Cleary, Eoin Carroll (0-9, 0-7 frees), Oisín O’Meara (1-1).

MacDonaghs began the campaign with a 5-14 to 2-10  victory over an understrength Silvermines side in Dolla. The home team had wind advantage in the first half and led by 1-7 to 1-4 at the break. Early in the second half, a Jack Mulcahy goal put Kilruane ahead, and they saw out the game to collect a valuable brace of points.

Team: Tom Austin, Cathal England, Ross Austin, Cian Hayes, Paul Molloy, Eamonn Coonan, Sean Hayes, Cian Moyles (1-0), Cillian Healy, Andrew Hayes, Jack Mulcahy (2-3), Tristan Madden, Shane Cleary, Eoin Carroll (2-7, 0-3 frees, 0-1 65), Michael Cleary (0-1).
