The highlight of the weekend was the victory by the McGovern Directional Drilling Intermediates in the John Corcoran Menswear Championship Semi Final over a gallant St Michael’s team in Strokestown on Sunday. It was an excellent all round team performance. They will play Tulsk in the County Final on 20th October.

Ladies Club
The Intermediate Ladies bowed out of this years championship after an epic semi-final battle with Eire Og in Frenchpark on Saturday evening. The sides finished level at the end of normal time at 1. 8 each, with Boyle’s goal coming from the excellent Danielle Gaffney. There was never more than a few points between the sides throughout the game and this pattern extended  into the first period of extra time. However, the Eire Og girls secured the vital scores in the second period of extra time to secure victory on a score line of 3.12 to 1. 12. It has been a marvellous achievement for the girls to reach the semi final and to go so close to victory in their first year in the Intermediate grade. It is to be hoped that the panel and the management will stay together and come back next year with the aim to build on this year’s experience. Team;- Christina Healy, Saoirse Flaherty,, Sinead Keenehan, Shauna Moran, Natasha Regan, Catriona Leonard, Susie Keenehan, Catriona Hanmore, Maria Keenehan, Danni Gaffney, Nicole McDermott, Emer Killilea, Sarah Keenehan, Danni McLoughlin and Sinead O’Donoghue. Sub used Orla Nicholson for Sarah Keenehan. Other subs;- Mellissa Goldrick, Mairead King, Caoimhe Morris, Catherine Lynch and Nicole Kerins. Management Paul Beirne and Bernie Shannon.
