In the first round of the County League MacDonaghs will take on Kiladangan. This is fixed for Puckane on Saturday at 2.00pm.
In the first round of the League we have a home game against Borris-Ileigh on Saturday, 23rd March. The remaining games are against Templederry (Away), Knockshegowna (Home) and Newport (Away).
The footballers captured the ‘B’ title for the first time since 2004 with a 6-13 to 0-11 victory over Ballina in Puckane. There seems to be some confusion over the final score. The Guardian and the Tribune have MacDonaghs with a tally of 6-11 while I have 6-13, the same score as the Tipperary Star. A brace of early goals from Craig Morgan laid the foundation for victory. At the interval the Magpies were well in control with the score 3-8 to 0-4 in their favour.
Ballina made a bright start to the second half with two points but Cian Darcy responded with two white flags. Goals from Craig Morgan in the 20th and 25th minute sealed a deserved victory. Well done to the players and management. Thanks to Ballina for a sporting game. The final score does not reflect the trend of play. In the County semi-final Kilseehlan or Mullinahone will provide the opposition.
Team: Kevin Shinners, Kevin Oakley (Capt), Sean McAdams, Cormac Mannion, Martin Grace, Jerome Cahill, Mark O’Neill (0-1), Jake O’Kelly, Conor Lillis, Owen Usman, Luke Dervan (0-1), Matthew Spain (1-1), Craig Morgan (4-2), Cian Darcy (1-8) and Kian O’Kelly. Subs: Luke Morkan, Matthew Moyles, Eoin England, Sean Quinlan and Louis Kennedy.
