Div. 2 League: We got our first win in this division last Sunday night against our neighbours Naomh Fionnbarra in the Grove. We got off to a slow start and got our noses in front just before the half time whistle with a goal from Dean Stanfield. In the second half we pulled away and were well worth the win in the end. It was a far better performence than the last game against the Irelanders and long may it continue. We play Dundalk Gaels next Saturday evening at 7.30pm in the Ramparts.

Draws: The Louth GAA club championship draws 2021 will be held tomorrow night 7th July in Darver and will be live on LúTV and also on LMFM radio from 8.00pm.
Underage: Just a word on our underage teams, our under 13s have won their first three games in division one and under 15’s have also won their first three games in division one. Our under 17’s which is minor now played their first game last Friday night and I believe they won but I can find no record of the result. Well done to all involved, both players and mentors, keep up the good work.
Cheque: Congratulations to Conor Lynch from the Sean McDermotts who raised €7,403 for SOSAD through his kick a point fundraiser last month when he kicked a point in every club in the county. Well done Conor and for a great cause.
