Under 21
Hard luck to our U-21 team who were knocked out of the championship on Sunday last after a draw with Ballinameen. Our lads got off to a poor start and were 9 points down at half time but fought back brilliantly to go 4 ahead but a late goal meant there was a share of spoils which put us out. Best of luck to Ballinameen in the semi finals. The team was Ollie Burke, Peter Glancy, Ian Connellan, Paul Butler, Danny Collins, Charlie Burke, Cathal Carney, Peter sheridan, Joe Sharkey, John Gannon, Ben Donoghue, Darragh Feeley, Brian Connellan, sub used Joe Garvey. thanks to the panel for their efforts during the year and thanks to the team selectors Donal Carroll and Damien Tiernan for their work and a special thanks to the team manager Brendan Burke for all the work and effort he put in over the last 2 months.
