Report for Week Ending 21st February 2010

Week Ending 21st February 2010

Wednesday 17th February 2010 brought an end to 2009 hurling business as the seniors defeated Naomh Fionnbarra by 2-17 to 0-11 at Inisfails’ grounds in Balgriffin. This was a must win game for the club. With Kevin O’Loughlin scoring freely and Ronan Walsh not far behind him in his impact on the game the business was done and the spectre of relegation to Division 2 staved off. For report see HERE
