Dromod Entente Florale

Dromod Entente Florale

It is all systems go for Dromod’s entry in this year’s Entente Florale competition. Much progress has been made in the village in recent weeks cleaning, painting litter picks etc. but there is still plenty more to be done before judging on the 30th of July. On the day of judging, we will be visited by judges from 11 different countries around Europe. The judges will spend four hours in the village, so we really have to make a lasting impression in those four hours. If you feel you can help or add something to the village or have some spare time to help out please contact us on dromoddevelopment@hotmail.com or find us on Facebook under “Lovely Dromod”

The same two players exchanged the next two points. Glencar/ Manor then took the lead with a point with Cathal Cox and Sean McNabola getting two points for Annaduff before half time. Annaduff led at the break by 0-4 to 0-3. The second half started with points from Adrian Croal and Matthew Reynolds before Mattie Cox’s dismissal. Croal then put the team’s level with a point followed by five Manor points in succession. Sean McNabola then gave Annaduff a lifeline with a well taken goal however Manor got three more points before the end to run out winners by five points. Annaduff : Jim McCormack, Thomas Flanagan, Dean Gill, Ronan Conroy, David Duignan, Hugh Moylan, Dillon Kane, Cathal Cox (0-1), Daniel Duignan, Sean McNabola (1-3), Matthew Reynolds (0-1), Eoin Gill, Kenny Cox, Mattie Cox (Capt.).
