Club Notes Week ending November 1st

November 8, 2018

On Sunday last at Fr McGee Park we booked our place in the Leader Cup final with a one point win over neighbours Dromard.It was an entertaining game with both teams sharing the lead in the first half and Colmcille racing into a strong lead in the second, only for Dromard to claw back to within a point at the finish. In the end we deservedly held out for the win and have now reached a fourth Leader Cup final this decade. Hopefully we can finish the year with a victory against Abbeylara who defeated Clonguish in the other semi-final.
Team v Dromard: Gavin Tonra, Paul Kennedy, Noel Farrell, Ciaran Brady, Anthony Gormley, Francis Kavanagh, Podge Murtagh, Kevin Farrell, Declan C Reilly, Paul Murtagh, Gary Murtagh, JP Reilly, Paul McKeon, Declan Farrell, Tommy Doyle.
