Coolaney/Mullinabreena GAA Club PRO Notes

November 8, 2018

Coolaney/Mullinabreena GAA




Our Intermediate side etched out a deserved draw against Drumcliffe in round four of the league last Sunday afternoon at Oxfield. Level at five points apiece at the interval, this entertaining game ebbed in favour of the home side in the second period as they raced four ahead. However C/M had other ideas and through admirable resolve and spirit from the whole team, managed to level matters near the end with a fine effort from play from Padraig McHugh. The score finished at nine points each.


Team: F Brennan, S Kivlehan, S Marren, C Gorman, M Conlon, B Coleman, A Walsh, R Gallagher(0.1), P McHugh(0.3), D Doherty, S O’Brien(0.1), M Connolly, A Duggan(0.1), K Finan(0.1), O Lee. Subs: A McGowan(0.1) for M Connolly(inj), B Kivlehan(0.1) for A McGowan, J McGowan for A Walsh, B Finnegan, J Connolly, T Sexton, K Duffy.
