Game against Tyholland Saturday Last: A clean hard fought game between two teams that were both fired up.  Currin started well getting two points in the first ten minutes. The first half was fairly even apart from a Tyholland goal and at half time the score was Currin 0-5 Tyholland 1-5.  Currin came out in fine form after the break, Jack scoring a quick point. Unfortunately Gerard O’Callaghan had to be substituted after an injury, Sean Brady taking his place. Dick Clerkin played a great game center field collecting most of the high balls and setting up the forwards. Jack McCarron played his usual excellent game scoring a goal from the penalty spot after 15 miknutes. This put Currin in the lead followed by two points we all thought that was enough, but Tyholland came back and levelled he game just before full time. In extra time Tyholland got the first point, but then Currin got a goal and once  again Currin were in the lead but Tyholland got a point to draw level as the whistle was due.Team: Fergal Connolly,Shane O’Connor, Conor McCaffrey Enda McCaffrey, Ciaran McCaffrey, Michael Quigley, Gerald O’Callaghan, Francis O’Callaghan,Dick Clerkin,Ben Blerkin, Jack McCarron, Stephen Smyth, Gareth Beattie, Ciaran Kierans, Philip O’Callaghan, Stephen Beattie came on after twenty minutes in the first half and Sean Brady, Declan Smyth and Tommy Maguire all came on in the second half.Jack McCarron scored one goal and six points, Stephen Smyth two and Shane ‘Connor each scored.
