County Team – The County boys played their hearts out but were up against a strong Monaghan side on Saturday last. The team is young and there will be better days ahead. They can all look forward now to the Leitrim Championships.

Under 12 – Allen Gaels were Mohill’s opposition in the Cross Border Shield final last week in Carrick. Having met before in the build-up it was obvious that little would separate these two well balanced teams and in the end and just one point was the winning margin with Allen Gaels winning the laurels on Thursday last.  The team and scorers was, C McHugh, T Casey, A Kiernan, F McManus, N Mulligan 2-1, R Walpole, T Mayock, C Walpole 0-2, B McCrann, E Kilrane, K McCaffrey 0-1, R Gordon, D Beirne 2-5, E OReilly. Subs not used, C Tighe, J Dimmock, S Mayock, J Doyle, J Gyasi, H Afford. The younger boys will have their chance on Tuesday next in the other Div Shield Final in Pairc Philib at 7pm.
