The Annual Mick Prior U10 Tournament took place last week end. In the first round Drom Inch defeated Upperchurch and Moneygall defeated Borris Ileigh. The final between Drom Inch and Moneygall proved to be a very exciting game with Drom Inch taking advantage of the breeze in the first half to go into a 4 point lead at half time. Moneygall battled hard in the second half and a couple of early points brought them right back into the game. Drom & Inch rallied with two further goals Moneygall rallied again with a further goal and a couple of points. Drom ran out as winners by the narrowest of margins. The plate final was also a close contest with Borris Ileigh emerging as winners by two points.
