half but Bruff were ahead by 6 points at half time. In the second half our hurlers fought hard and thanks to David Breen scoring another fantastic goal the scoring difference was down to 3 points. It was not to be on the day, however, as Bruff scored 2 more points leaving the final score Dromin Athlacca 1:16 Bruff 2:18.

We would like to thank each mentor, player and parent who have put in tremendous work in adhering to Covid 19 guidelines and ensuring the safety of our club. Please remember to confirm health status before each training session and match which can be done on www.returntoplay.ie. Also that each player has a personal water bottle as per guidelines.
As we continue with the delayed Phase 4 of Covid Restrictions the indications are that each Championship game will be “all ticket” for adults and children alike. The club will be allocated approximately 50 tickets for the upcoming third round of Premier Intermediate Championship which sees Dromin Athlacca play Knockainey. Tickets are 8e each. No
concessions. Tickets will be available for Dromin Athlacca GAA Senior Club members. If you wish to purchase a ticket for this match, please give your name directly to a club member on or before Wednesday Aug 5th. A draw can then be made for tickets. It is envisioned that intercounty games will become an “ all ticket” affair and same club terms as 2019 will then apply. These are extremely uncertain times and extremely difficult situations for clubs and committees to work through, which we will endeavour to do.
