Senior footballers make history

What a great day for the club as the Senior footballers made it through to our first Leinster SFC final following a comfortable 1-11 to 0-09 victory over St.Lomans on Sunday in sunny Mullingar. A Sam Molony goal coupled with a solid team performance proved to be enough to get us through a stop-start game to set up a meeting with multiple Leinster champions Portloaise in Tullamore on 6th December. Thanks for the great travelling support again today, hope to see you all again in two weeks time for the final! Massive congratulations to the players and management on an historic achievement.

They overhear the situation and conspire to assist the family. Drawing on their collective checkered pasts and criminal knowledge, these benevolent scoundrels make it their business to set matters right.
