The Seniors played their final match of the season at the weekend and endured to heavy defeat to Redhills by 3-12 to 0-7.  With the Intermediate champions looking for avictory to ensure promotion, we were always under pressure and the visitors ran out easy winners.  A disappointing end of a disappointing season that saw us just retain Division 2 status by a solitary point.
The Minors play their postponed league semi-final against St. Joseph’s next weekend at a venue and date to be confirmed

The first U-8 GAA blitz under lights took place in Kingscourt last Saturday night @ 7pm.

4 teams competed : St Micheals, Shercock, Bailieboro & Kingscourt.

Teams played a round robin system in group stage with 6 games in total. All teams played 3 games each.

The 1st semi-final and probably game of the night saw St.Micheals play Shercock. After 10 minutes scores were level.

After extra time scores remained tied. The result went to a shoot off which St.Micheals won in sudden death.

The second semi saw Kingscourt & Bailieboro play each other and again it ended level. Kingscourt won in extra-time.

The final was played @ 9.15pm and again it was a tight affair with the home side shading it by 3 scores to 1.

All players received trophies on the night and this tournament was a great success for all participants.

After a long time, the club lotto was finally won last night, and with the bonus number also going, it was a very profitable night for Danny McCabe, of Woodside, New York.  Danny was the only one to have the number 9, 11, 23 & 25 to claim the €13,800 jackpot.  However, by also having 17 as the bonus, a further €5,000 was added to the total giving him a very nice €18,800.  Congratulations, Danny
