Peter Hanley Motors Senior Football Championship – Round 4

Dromard . . . . . . . 1-14 Fr. Manning Gaels . . . . . . . 0-9

Dromard recorded a hard fought win over a spirited Fr. Manning Gaels side at Emmet Park in Killoe on Thursday night. Conditions were far from ideal for this Senior Football Championship Round 4 clash with a swirling wind and non-stop rain but credit to both sides who produced an enjoyable game of football.

Dromard had eight points to spare in the finish but the Gaels had chances near the end to cut the deficit. The only goal of the game came in the 60th minute with Diarmuid Masterson finding the back of the net with a little help from the butt of the post.
