Senior Championship Action this weekend

November 8, 2018

The SFC round 2 games will be played next weekend and it will be a very busy time for Edenderry GAA officials as the club will first play host to Gracefield & Walsh Island as they do battle at 8pm on Friday night.

It is many years since Edenderry hosted a championship game and many neutrals are expected to attend the game along with a strong following from the two competing clubs. Admission to the game will be €5 with U14s & Senior Citizens admitted free.

On Saturday evening Edenderry will be in action themselves as they play group rivals Erin Rovers in an eagerly awaited clash. Rarely is there more than the kick of a ball between these two teams & indeed the Reds had to recover from a shock draw in Round 1 in 2011 when the went all they way to lift the Dowling Cup.

First round defeats for both clubs means that the losers of this clash will be rooted to the bottom of the table after two games and could see their senior status under threat with some big clashes to come down the line.

All supporters are urged to travel to O’Connor Park for this game at 5.45pm. Admission will be €8 as the game is a double header with Rhode v Tubber at 7.30.
