On Sunday morning we had 2 football league games in Divisions One and Three. The Division One team recorded their second win with an away victory over last years League champions Castlemartyr. We won on a scoreline of  2-16 to 1-6.
Castlemartyr started well going 1-2 to 0-1 up in the first 5 minutes. The two Seans then began to dominate in mid field where they never lost their control and both were exceptional over the hour. The full forward line was dominant scoring 2-6 with Georgie showing nimble footwork to score some spectacular points. Tomás following up on his goal in the opening game with another and Alan lead the line at full forward. The defence was rock solid and full of running with little to after the opening 10 minutes. Best in that area were Brendan Walsh, Jim O’Connor and James Murphy.
