Div 1: We played Ballymahon on Good Friday in Mostrim, thanks very much to the Mostrim club for the use of their excellent pitch and facilities. Ballymahon started and finished the stronger and scored several magnificent points from frees, indeed it wasn't until the opposition were reduced to 14 men that Dromard took control of the game. The final score was Dromard 1-15 Ballymahon 0-12.m Our next outing is away to Abbeylara this Wednesday night the 23rd.  Team: Damien Sheridan, Padraig McNerney, David Pettit, James Mimnagh, Peter Masterson, John Sheridan, Kieran McStay, Bernard Sheridan, Kevin Donohoe, Padraig Martin, Ronan McEntire, Emmett Masterson, Francis McGee, Ross McNerney, Gary Maguire.

Div 3: We played St. Marys Granard in Pairc NaGael on Saturday evening in conditions ideal for football. Well done to all on a fine performance in achieving two victories in a row. The team has an ideal mix of youth and experience and played a good brand of open football and it was great to see a number of new players out. We beat St Mary's on a scoreline of 3-15 to 1-18 with Peter Mimnagh accounting for 1-04 of the total, however it was a great performance by all the team and they now  look forward to their next outing which is on Sunday in Fr. McGee Park against Colmcille. Keep up the good run lads. Best wishes for a speedy recovery to James Kenny who picked up a knock in the game.
