Senior Football:In a classic game of two halves, the McGovern Directional senior team eked out a three point win over St Brigids in the senior league on Friday evening in Kiltoom. Trailing by eight points at the interval, the team showed great heart ,team spirit and resilience in the second half. As the light faded over Lough Ree, some inspired substitutions, a brave penalty save and fine scores highlighted the team’s strength of character despite having had no competitive football for six weeks. Well done lads.
Junior Football: The rescheduled game for the Cooney Motors Junior team last Wednesday against St Aidan’s fell foul of a late cancellation.
It is unfortunate that the team has had little game time of late and it is hoped that the remaining fixtures will be played as soon as possible.
