Senior Lose Out On Title

November 8, 2018

Hard luck to the Rhode Senior footballers and management team of Pat Daly manager Johnny Mooney and Pauric Dunne and to all the backroom panel of their 2-7 to 0-9 defeat to Tullamore in Sunday’s County Final. Rhode never really got into this game the scores at the interval was Rhode 0-5 Tullamore 1-2 the Rhode points coming from Mark Dunne, Niall Darby (2) one each from Niall McNamee and Glen O’Connell. Tullamore were the better team in the second half but Rhode tagged on points from Glen O’Connell, Niall Darby, Eoghan Byrne, Pascal Kellaghan but it wasn’t enough on the day.
