May Bank Holiday Marquee Event: Just a week to go until the May bank holiday weekend when the big tent comes to St. Mellans bringing a feast of entertainment. Friday night will host a boxing exhibition and ladies mud wrestling under the marquee. Saturday night, 30th April, Declan Nerney will be the headlining event. The last night of the event, Bank Holiday Sunday will see the crowd pulling live band, More Power to Your Elbow, take stage. A weekend not to be missed.

Seniors: In a hugely entertaining game, we came away from our game with Ballybay sharing the spoils under a score line 2-10 to 1-13. Scores were exchanged evenly throughout the hour making it a very competitive match.  We went 1-1 to 0-2 ahead in the 6th minute from a Pauric Treanor goal. It took a further 25 minutes before Ballybay regained their lead, when on the stroke of half time they added a point to move 0-8 to 1-4 ahead. Our points in the first half came from 2 Daniel McKenna free kick’s and scores from Damian McRory and Niall Coyle. Scores were level at 1-7 to 0-10 in the 37th minute when Niall Coyle added to Daniel McKenna and Mark Counihan’s freekick. Ballybay scored their only goal of the game in the 39th minute to leave us 3 behind. However, we kept in touch with two further points from Daniel McKenna and Keith Sheerin before we re-took the lead in the 46th minute when John Treanor fisted to the net to leave the scores 2-9 to 1-11. Mark Counihan added another point a minute later to increase the lead to 2 points. It was the home side however who finished stronger adding 2 points, the second being the equaliser coming with 2 minutes to go to finish the match a draw 2-10 to 1-13.
