Senior Championship – We bowed out of the championship on Saturday evening in Pairc Sean losing to defending champions Mohill on a scoreline of 3-17 to 0-08. After an encouraging opening 20 minutes, it was all Mohill as we faded out of the game. The final margin was harsh on the players who put in a big effort. While we showed flashes of promise this season, we certainly learned that Division 2 is no preparation for the senior championship and it is important that everyone remains focussed for the coming weeks with a crucial league playoff with Dromahair to come that will decide who joins Annaduff in Division 1 next year. We wish Mohill well in the remainder of the championship and well done to the players & management for their commitment all year.

Dunnes Bar Division 2 – The lads had 2 tough games last week against Dromahair and Annaduff. We travelled to Dromahair on Wednesday evening and found ourselves a goal down in the first minute and worse almost followed as Dromahair missed a penalty in the 4th minute as well as a coupof veryery scorable chances. We got on the scoreboard in the 7th minute when Shane Beirne fisted a point quickly followed by a point from play from Caleb Duffy. The home side had the next 2 points before we hit 4 points on the trot between the 16th and 24th minute from James Flynn, Caleb Duffy (2) & Martin Beirne. Dromahair hit back with 3 points of their own to lead 1-05 to 0-6 at the break. The home side kicked on after the interval and points in the 32nd & 34th minute saw them lead by 4. Martin Beirne landed a free in reply but another free in the 42nd minute proved to be their last score. The home side were reduced to 14 men and played a rearguard action to protect their lead. Martin Beirne in the 47th minute and a long range Diarmuid McKiernan free left 2 points in it with 10 minutes remaining. We were unable to find a way through in that time and it was the first minute of injury time when Bryan Beirne landed a long range score to bring us within one. As time was running out Martin Raftery was the hero when he popped up with the equaliser in the 4th minute of stoppage time to secure a share of the spoils. In a must win game on Saturday evening we came out on top in a tight encounter with table toppers Annaduff. Again another slow start saw us trail 1-04 to 0-01 at the end of the opening quarter. The visitors raced into a 3 point lead in 7 minutes before Caleb Duffy pointed from play after great work from Kyle Flynn in defence. Annaduff added another point and then as they dominated possession struck for a goal on 12 minutes. Martin Beirne replied with a free and then in the 20th minute hit the net to bring us back into the game. Thomas Mulvey added a point from play and in the 26th minute Ciaran Walsh got on the end of a move to strike for our second goal and put us in the lead for the first time. However on the stroke of half time Annaduff were awarded a penalty & converted to leave the interval score 2-04 to 2-03 to the visitors. Annaduff had the first 2 points of the second half inside 2 minutes but Caleb Duffy was on hand in the 33rd minute to grab our third goal & level the game. Both sides missed chances before Annaduff edged ahead again in the 42nd minute. Martin Beirne converted a free to level again going into the last quarter. Annaduff scored from a free to lead again on 49 minutes but this was short lived as Martin Raftery broke up field to level once more. Diarmuid McKiernan converted a pressure 45 after missing a couple earlier with 5 minutes remaining. When Annaduff hit a great long range equaliser in the 58th minute it looked like they would secure the point they needed to confirm promotion. However with the game in injury time Caleb Duffy hit a free and then added a final point from play after a brilliant interception by David Wynne to close out the game on a score line of 3-08 to 2-09.Scorers: Martin Beirne 1-03; Caleb Duffy 1-03; Ciaran Walsh 1-00; Thomas Mulvey 0-01; Martin Raftery 0-01. Our last game this weekend is a must win match against Cloone in Cloone so best of luck to the team & management.

Dunnes Bar Division 2 – It’s been a busy week for the team & management with two games in 4 days. We travelled to Drumreilly last Wednesday evening and after a titanic battle emerged with a share of the spoils on a scoreline of 4-11 to 3-14 in a cracking encounter. We led 1-10 to 1-07 at the break and with Caleb Duffy in imperious form were looking good for the points but a late goal for the home side earned a draw. Our scorers were: Caleb Duffy 3-06 (4f); Thomas Mulvey 0-02; Martin Beirne 0-02; Shane Walsh 0-02; Martin Raftery 0-01; Diarmuid McKiernan 0-01. On Sunday morning we had a home game against Glencar Manorhamilton and after another high quality game we came out on top on a scoreline of 3-10 to 0-13. Again this was a great battle and if Manor had converted some goal chances then it would have been a closer affair. We led 1-06 to 0-05 at the interval with Bryan Beirne finding the roof of the net in the 4thminute. Martin Beirne scored a goal in the 35th minute with a great finish from a tight angle and Thomas Mulvey secured the points when he coolly slotted home in the 52nd minute. Scorers: Martin Beirne 1-07 (5f); Thomas Mulvey 1-01; Bryan Beirne 1-00; Caleb Duffy 0-02. Best of luck to the squad & management in the remaining games as we chase promotion. We are fixed to play away  to Dromahair on Wednesday evening at 8:30pm and at home to Annaduff on Saturday, the two teams above us in the table. This means we have to play 4 games in 10 days which is a very big ask of players at this time of year with lads having to travel for 2 consecutive Wednesday night games. If the Fixtures Committee feel this is a reasonable situation then all clubs should have to play the same schedule and this is not the case!
