St John’s re­turned to action this year for the first time since May, tak­ing on league new­com­ers Tir­eragh in Clever­agh. Look­ing to re­turn to the Su­per League at the first at­tempt, the lads knew three points to­day was the ex­pec­ta­tion, noth­ing less. De­spite be­ing the bet­ter team for the ma­jor­ity of the first half, the home team fell be­hind af­ter half an hour. A spec­u­la­tive ef­fort from a long-range free kick wasn’t dealt with and the Tir­eragh for­ward un­marked in the box made no mis­take from the re­bound.

St John’s took the mo­men­tum in the sec­ond half per­for­mance and looked to put the West Sligo sides to the sword. Mal­colm Reilly’s pow­er­ful run into the box couldn’t be stopped and he found skip­per Conor Bren­nan, who couldn’t miss to put the teams’ level. 4-1 was how it fin­ished, St John’s more than value the score and three points. A strong chal­lenge awaits next week as they take on Ar­row Harps in River­stown.


Peo­ple walk­ing their dogs on Car­raroe roads are re­quested to re­move foul­ing and not to dump into hedges as the plas­tic bags do not dis­in­te­grate and have to be re­moved by lit­ter pick­ers – please bring home and bin.
