U15 boys: A busy week for the U15s with the Div1 team seeing their 3 game winning streak come to an end when a very determined Scotstown team came to St Mary’s park on Thursday last. In a game that swung both ways, the visitors finished the stronger to take the points.
The Div5 team played the same opposition on Friday evening and in a great team performance, held out to take their first win of the year which was well deserved.
On Saturday the squad took part in the Feile competition in Cloghan, winning their semi final V Donaghmoyne in a tight game, they faced Aughnamullen in the final. Against a strong wind in the first half, they went into second half 5pts down but rallied to close the gap to the minimum but just fell short on this occasion. It was a great effort by the team and many thanks to Monaghan Co Board for organising the day.
