Our senior football team’s venture to Clonmel GAA grounds wasn’t to be a fruitful one as we faced a formidable Coláiste Chluain Meala in the County championships. Whilst we led in the early stages, relentless pressure applied by Clonmel resulted in a brace of goals and despite finishing with superb performances from Phillip O’Sullivan, Curtis Ryan, Gavin Dunne, Aaron Delaney, and Dan Dwyer we ultimately succumbed to a better side on the day. Beidh lá eile!
