St Brigid’s win

Well done to St Brigid’s who defeated Ballymore on a scoreline of 3-10 to 0-12 in the first round of the Intermediate Football Championship. Onwards and upwards for round two. Hard luck to our Southern Gaels U-12 team who lost out to Ballymahon/Forgney by five points in a tightly contested final in Pearse Park recently. The team were deserving runners-up after a great campaign- congratulations to all involved.
