FEDAMORE GAA CLUB NOTES
On Thursday night we took on our near neighbours South Liberties in the junior hurling championship. Both teams started well and were evenly matched in the first quarter. An early South Liberties goal was a reply to some fine free taking by Mike Shinney. Gradually we got into the game and we were four points up at half time.
In the third quarter, South Liberties got on top and brought our lead back to a solidarity point. However in the final fifteen minutes we rallied, driven on by a fine performance by Aodhan Hurley in the half back line. A Colin Haigney goal and Craig McNamara point in the final few minutes had us in front when referee Eamonn Phelan blew the final whistle as darkness descended. Final score Fedamore 1:15 – 1:13 South Liberties.
Team from Dean Fanning, Tom Keogh, Padraig Kelleher, Hugh O Donnell, Aodhan Hurley, Eoin Enright, Cian Enright, Colin Haigney, Craig McNamara, Tom Shinney, Mike Shinney, John Bourke, Darren Kelly, Eoghan Hurley, Darragh O Keeffe, Dinny Cronin Joe Powell.
The club would like to wish South Liberties full forward Darragh Godfrey a speedy recovery after sustaining a knee injury.
