GAA NEWS

Our Junior footballs put in another good display this weekend, but despite a very good second half performance went down to a strong Clonard team in Carne.

In a very entertaining game which saw both sides play some excellent football, it was the town team who went into the break in front. But to their credit the Island fought back in the second half and were much the better team over the final 30, being very unlucky to concede a late goal which sealed it for Clonard.

There where excellent performance all over the field from a number of our young minors in there first year at junior level, but also there were a number of senior panel members who got their chance due to injuries and have certainly given the selectors something to think about ahead of their next game.

With this mix of youth and experience, and the commitment being show on and off the field by the panel we are sure that our first win isn't far away. Well done to all involved.
