Reserves –progressed to the next round of the Crawley Cup courtesy of a 5 point victory away to Monaghan Harps on Friday evening last. Next game is away to Clones on Sunday  20th May in the league.

Seniors – Two shockingly poor performances in the last 7 days have left our senior team rooted close to the bottom of the junior league. Over the course of the two games there was no style and little substance about the challenge put up to both Killeevan and Clones. Both performances were void of any urgency and purpose with basic mistakes being punished by the opposition. Attention must now turn to the next game away to Kilanny on Friday 11th May at 7.30pm.
