In the County League we have been drawn in a group with Upperchurch-Drombane, Burgess, Borris-Ileigh, Moycarkey-Borris, Thurles Sarsfields, Kiladangan and Drom & Inch. The first round is expected to take place on the weekend of 10th March.
The footballers qualified for the semi-final with a 3-9 to 2-5 victory over Lorrha/Rovers in Ballinderry. Despite the home side dominating possession in the first half MacDonaghs enjoyed a five-point lead at the interval. A solid defensive performance in the second half laid the foundation for victory. Team: Kevin Shinners, Kevin Oakley, Cormac Mannion, Sean Quinlan, Owen Usman, Martin Grace, Mark O’Neill, Cian Darcy, Craig Morgan, Sean McAdams, Luke Dervan, Matthew Spain, Aaron Morgan, Kian O’Kelly, Páidí Williams. Sub: Shane Whelan.
The first round of the ‘A’ football championship against Kiladangan has been pencilled in for Sunday, 24th February in Puckane at 11.00am.
Congratulations to Sean McAdams, Eoin England, Páidí Williams, Kevin McDonald, David O’Sullivan and Borrisokane Community College on their victory over St. Anne’s Killaloe in the Munster final.
