We had mixed fortunes in the opening rounds of the championship. We had to give second best to Toomevara in St. Michael’s Park and came out the wrong side of a 5-19 to 4-8 scoreline.

Team: Dara Gaynor, Conor McGrath, Jack Cleary, Shay Óg Kennedy, James Gould, Hugo Healy, Stasic Setikas, Cormac Kennedy (1-3, 0-2 frees), Gerard O’Looney, Charlie Kennedy (0-2 frees), Tommy O’Meara (1-0), Paraic Nevin (1-0), Tom Campbell, Tommy Gaynor, Andrew Austin (1-3). Subs: Emmet Dwyer, Arman Khan Wahid, Oisín Carroll, Riain Haverty.

MacDonaghs bounced back with a 7-17 to 1-15 home victory over Kiladangan in the second round. The Magpies were always in control and had a commanding 3-14 to 0-6 interval lead. Even when we lost a man overboard early in the second half, the result was never in doubt against a Kiladangan side that kept plugging away until the end.

Team: Dara Gaynor, James Gould, Tommy Gaynor, Conor McGrath, Jack Cleary, Cormac Kennedy (1-3, 0-2 frees), Stasik Setikas, Hugo Healy (0-2), Tommy O’Meara (3-3), Charlie Kennedy (1-5, 0-3 frees), Paraic Nevin, Gerard O’Looney (0-1), Shay Óg Kennedy (2-0), Andrew Austin (0-2), Emmet Dwyer. Subs: Tom Campbell, Arman Khan Wahid, Oisín Carroll (0-1).
