Division 4 Team : 11th May Against Monaghan Harps. Harps 3-12 Currin 0-9
On a cold evening in Monaghan, Currin were up against a strong organised team. Many of the Currin regular lads were not available because of work commitments. Harps on the other hand have a large club and therefore many subs.
Nevertheless the game was played in good spirit and our lads gave of their best. The wind was a factor in many attempts going wide for both teams, but Harps coped better. Ciaran McCaffrey played well scoring six points. In midfield Daragh Brady was outstanding and scored one point. Team: Darren Rooney, Garry Beattie, Fergal Connolly, Fintan Rudden,(Subbed by Larry McQuaid in the second half,) Daragh Brady 1 Pt. Enda McCaffrey, Paddy McDermott, Tommy McGuire, Cieran McCaffrey 6 pts. Ryan Beattie, Nial McEntee 2 pts, Cieran McQuaid, Seamus McQuaid.
