In the first round of the Junior ‘A’ League, we came out the wrong side of a 0-28 to 2-14 scoreline against Éire Óg in Nenagh. The home side led by five points at the break, and heading into injury time, the same margin separated the sides. However, Nenagh added three points to emerge deserving winners.
Team: Kevin Naughnane, Sean Quinlan, Tomás Hogan, Conor Austin, Ross Austin, Cormac Mannion, Rory Grace, Eanna Hogan, Robert Austin, Oisín O’Meara, Conor Cleary (0-1), Paddy Ryan (0-1), Eoin Carroll (2-9, 1-6 frees), Brian O’Meara (0-1), Kevin Oakley. Subs: Pat Conway, Jack Mulcahy, Jonathan Cahill (0-1), David Mooney, Tristan Madden, Declan Barrett (0-1), Eoin England. Seven subs are allowed in the League.
In the second round, we are at home to Toomevara this Saturday, 3rd June, at 7.00pm.
In the final round of the North/Mid League, we recorded a two-point victory over Lorrha Rovers in MacDonagh Park.
We played Portumna in MacDonagh Park on Friday evening. We fielded two teams with each playing two games. Thanks to Portumna for travelling.
