We lost our full back to a red card and were down to 13 men. Pat Flynn and Rory Toomey stepped up their per­for­mance at mid­field and a big high ball landed in the goal area and Kevin Mills tipped it in for a goal – four points down. The usual one two with Tommy Dwyer and Nikki Dono­van re­sulted in an­other goal – one point down. Hol­ly­wood raced up field and scored a point – 2 points down. An­other high ball landed in around the square. Ed Flynn sailed up, took it down and banged it into the back of the net. We were one point up and it seemed an age be­fore the ref­eree blew the fi­nal whis­tle.

Our divi­sion two team was three points down at the break and bounced back for a one point win over Bal­ly­manus in Dionard on Fri­day night. Alan Daly’s goal was top class as was Harry Man­gan’s win­ning point with only se­conds left on the watch.

The County Mi­nor team lost to Dublin in Aughrim on Satur­day. Shane Daly was our sole rep­re­sen­ta­tive on the team. Shane did al­right in that po­si­tion. The Dubs seemed to be stronger and smarter all over the field. A missed penalty early in the game did not help mat­ters. Joe Mills and Jack Grace were on the greater panel.

The lotto jack­pot is now €6,000. Last week F & B O’Neill, Win­nie Nolan and Clare Daly matched three and won €67. John Nolan won the seller’s prize.
