Men’s Senior Footballers
Our senior men’s team were narrowly beaten in their first division one league game of the year by St. Molaise Gaels on a scoreline of 1-10 to 0-10. The game was a tight contest throughout and the teams were only separated by a first half goal. A young St. Mary’s team featured senior league debutants Fionn O’Hehir, Jay Cox, Finn Young, Eamon Flynn, Tom Gavin and Conor White. They battled hard and showed a lot of heart to push St. Molaise Gaels all the way. Next up for the seniors is a Kiernan Cup semi final versus Tourlestrane next weekend.
