On Wednesday last our seniors travelled to McGann Park Kenagh to play round 4 of the All County league.  The game was played under floodlights.  Francis Mc Gee got our opening score of the game - a goal from play after good approach work.  The same player knocked over a point from play followed by another point from play from the boot of Declan Mimnagh.  The home side recorded their opening score a pointed free.  We added a further 5 points from play before half time to leave the scoreline at the break 1-07 to 0-02.  We added a further 2 goals in the second half to stretch our advantage.  The final score was Dromard 3-10 Kenagh 0-04.  Team and scorers;  Damien Sheridan, Paul McGee, Cathal Conefrey, Padraig McNerney, Conor Duffy, Diarmuid Masterson, John Sheridan, Bernard Sheridan, Noel Reynolds, Peadar Faughnan (0-01), Francis McGee (1-03), Peter Masterson, James Martin (0-03), Ronan McEntire (1-00), Declan Mimnagh (1-01).  Subs used; Cian Mimnagh, Enda McEntire (0-01), James Mimnagh, Emmet Masterson (0-01) and Kieran McStay.

On Saturday our special junior league team travelled to play Grattan’s in their excellent new pitch in Dunbeggan.  The home side went 1-01 to no score ahead.  We responded with points from play.  We conceded another goal but picked off a few more points from play, the last of which was a fine long range effort from Michael Reynolds.  The half time score was Dromard 0-07 Grattan’s 2-03.  In the second half we had the assistance of the breeze and our players played very good football with our finishing of a high standard.  The final score was Dromard 0-15 Grattan’s 2-08.  Team and scorers;  Danny Pettit, James Conefrey, Thomas Conefrey, Niall Berry, Michael Reynolds (0-01), Keith Masterson, Dermot Reilly (0-1), Mícheál Reilly (0-02), Kevin Maguire (0-02), Cornie McGinley, Mark Murtagh, Sean Pettit (0-03), Gary Maguire (0-05) 2 frees.  Great to Sean Pettit back in a Dromard jersey.  He certainly didn't lose any of his attacking skills if his performance on Saturday is anything to go by.  Next outing for this team is away to Killashee next Friday at 7.30pm. On Sunday last we travelled the short journey to Monaduff to take on Fr. Manning Gaels in a Reserve league Div. 1 game.  We got off to a good start opening up a 1-03 to no score lead.  The goal came from Donal Sheridan.  It was the turn of the home side to enjoy a good spell that yielded 4 points.  Sean McNerney landed the last point of the half.  The half time score was Dromard 1-04 Fr. Manning Gaels 0-04.  On the resumption we extended our lead adding 4 points.  While our opponents landed scores of their own we held on to finish ahead at the final whistle on the scoreline Dromard 1-10 Fr. Manning Gaels 0-06.  Team and scorers;  Gavin McNerney, Enda Kiernan, Padraig McNerney, James Conefrey, Mícheál Reilly (0-01), Paul McEntire, Conor Duffy, James Mimnagh, Noel Reynolds (0-01), Kieran McStay (0-01), Bernard Sheridan (0-01), Emmet Masterson (0-01), Sean McNerney (0-01), Donal Sheridan (1-01), Gary Maguire (0-03) 2 frees.  Subs used; Kevin Donohoe. Next outing for this panel is an away fixture with Mostrim on Sunday next at 2.30pm. Best of luck to Longford seniors when the take on Wexford in the National League division 3 final in Croke Park on Saturday next.
