Div 1: Abbeylara 0-10 v 1-09 Dromard. We played Abbeylara in Oliver Lynch Park on Wednesday evening last. In a game that was extremely keenly fought from beginning to end. There was only 2 points separating the sides in favour of Dromard when an eagerly awaited final whistle blew. Dromard made all the running in the first half after a well taken goal from Ross McNerney in the first minute got them off to the best possible start setting them up for a 6 point winning margin at half time. However, things could have been different had Abbeylara not been guilty of poor finishing in front of the posts during the half. The second half was a completely different affair with Abbeylara turning a lot of ball over in their own half back line and midfield area and Dromard squandering numerous opportunities upfront and finding it hard to penetrate. In the end it was a capable Dromard defence that time and again held out to repel the numerous Abbeylara attacks during the half.  We now play Mostrim in the final game before the break this Thursday night in Pairc NaGeal.  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, Frankie McGee, Ross McNerney and Gary Maguire.

 Div 3: Colmcille 0-09 v 3-13 Dromard. We played Colmcille in Fr. McGee Park on Friday evening last in what was a great performance by all the team in a game where it would be unfair to list out individuals. It was a real team performance on the day. This now leaves Con McLoughlin’s charges winning three games in a row and second in the league. We now play Fr. Manning Geals in Pairc NaGeal this Saturday at 7pm, check text for any changes. As this is the last game before the break a special effort it needed to get all the lads out.

Training. Check text for details.
