Congrats to our Senior Footballers & Management with their win in the County Championship last Sunday against Ballysteen in the Bog Garden. The game finished 1-9 to 0-8 placing them into the County Semi final, yet TBC. We wish them the very best in their preparation.
Our Junior Footballers played on Sunday against Feenagh/Kilmeedy in Ballingarry in the Woodlands House Hotel County Junior A Football Championship Quarter Final. F/K were the first to score from play in the 3rd minute and Adare opened their scores in the 10th minute from a free by Sian Hickey. Adare then took the lead with a score from play by Billy Supple, which lasted ten minutes until F/K measured up a nice score from play. Both teams exchanged scores in the second quarter and just before half time Adare took the lead with a score from a free by Michael Southgate, 0-5 to 0-4 at the break. In the second half F/K levelled with a point from play from the restart and another eleven minutes in, to go one up. They widened the gap three minutes later with another score from play to make it 5 points to 7 at the water break. Adare were now hungry for goal in the final quarter but F/K managed to keep their first number of attacks out. F/K popped another over the Adare crossbar making a goal now the difference between both sides. Adare were surely going to crack the F/K defence at some stage and in the late stages of the quarter they managed a point from a free by Sian Hickey, their first score of the second half. Into injury time, making the most of what was left they searched for goal but were denied by F/K who managed to widen the gap back to a goal once more with a point from play. Full-time Adare 0-6 F/K 0-9.
We would like to wish our Senior Hurling team & management the very best this Sunday the 3rd of October as they take on Patrickswell at 4pm in the LIT Gaelic Grounds, in the Bon Secours, County Senor Hurling Championship, Quarter Final. Tickets for the game will be available during the coming week. Referee will be Eamonn Stapleton.
