Féile

We had two teams in Féile action on Sunday. In Division 1, our first team played in Clonoulty and had a victory over the home side in the first game. Against St. Mary’s and JK Brackens we lost by a point and missed out on a semi-final spot. James Gould broke a collarbone in the first match. We wish him a speedy recovery. Our second team played in Division 8 in Littleton. They lost to a strong Durlas Óg side and were just two points adrift of Cashel at the final whistle.
