Congratulations to Peter, Stephen and all the county minors on two great results in this year’s group stages of the Leinster League A win over Offaly in the last game should see Longford progress on into the next phase. Best of luck to all!
A very well done, to the Western Gaels juvenile team, who kicked off their Leinster League campaign with a victory over Tullamore in Offaly last Saturday evening.
The lads showed great reserve and a great 2nd half performance to turn a 4 point deficit at half time into a winning 3 point margin in the end.
A great performance and start to the competition. Well done to Jimmy, PJ, Mark, Sean and all the team. This week will see the rescheduled1st round game v Dromard/Drumlish take place, looks like Thursday night but to be confirmed, followed by the visit of Mullingar Shamrocks to Clonbony at the weekend.
A couple of similar performances will hopefully see the team progress to the knock out stages of the competition!
Our team kicked off their season last weekend with a challenge v St.Lomans in Mullingar at Shamrocks Mullingar. While our lads got off to a great start and had a large lead at half time, the home side fought back valiantly to snatch a victory.
Thanks to the club for facilitating the fixture and welcoming us down to their ground - hopefully can repay the compliment in the future.
