Our Ju­nior team was first in ac­tion last week when they played Bless­ing­ton away 0n Thurs­day. It didn’t look well be­fore the game when Part Flynn failed a fit­ness test, James Ea­ger was sick and bill Flynn got stuck in traf­fic. Nikki Dono­van moved to mid field and was do­ing well when he got a leg in­jury and went off. We were lucky Kevin Kealy was home on hol­i­days and had no prob­lem step­ping up to the mark. We in­tro­duced new man, Nikki O’Neill and he scored two points. Ed Flynn was our top scorer with 1-4.His goal was a peach. In the third minute, a high ball from Mid­field drop­ping down in the goal area, Ed just reached up and tapped the ball be­hind the goalie. This was the start we badly needed and we never looked back. Our team was: Enda Wal­she, Rory Hankin, Bren­dan Daly, Gavin Wal­she (1-0 Dean Flynn, Colm Toomey, Ro­nan Con­ron, Rory Toomey, Nikki Dono­van Dean Mann (0-1) Tommy Dwyer (0-3) Shane Ea­ger (0-1) Gerry Daly, Ed Flynn (1-3) Colm O’Neill, Subs were: Kevin Kealy and Nikki O’Neil (0-2).

Our Ju­nior team will play St Pat’s, Wick­low Town in Donard on Thurs­day next.

Our se­nior camo­gie team beat Gle­nealy in their first game in the cham­pi­onship. This game started at 7.30 in con­tin­u­ous rain and we were lucky we had lights as they were on for the full game. They will play Avon­dale at home on Tues­day next.

Our Divi­sion 2 team played Dunlavin in Hol­ly­wood on Satur­day in the cham­pi­onship. This was a cru­cial game for our lads. Sadly af­ter a good first half played into a stiff breeze, the sec­ond half, with the wind in their backs, was a dis­ap­point­ment. They lost 1-12 to 1-9. It is a fight for sur­vival in Divi­sion 2 for the rest of the cam­paign.

There was no lotto win­ner last week. Emma Healy, An­thony Allen and Ai­daoine Flynn matched three and won €67 each. The jack­pot is now €9,300. Tommy Dwyer won the seller’s prize.
