U16s: We played Monaghan Harps in the championship last Thursday evening. We lost our influential midfielder Andrew woods to an innocuous black Card in the first 10 minutes. The team dug deep and continued to fight to the bitter end but were unable to win the game. A very good team performance considering the circumstances.
