Played in Garrycastle on Sunday morning there was a strong breeze favouring the home team in the first half.  An early point from Paul Gunning, was followed by a point for Kilucan  after 10 minutes. Two Tom O’Halloran points and one for Cathal Mannion  gave the home team a 3 point advantage midway through the half. Kilucan  got the edge at midfield for a period and were rewarded with 2 points. However the Garrycastle  boys regained the initiative and points from Paul ODonovan, Paul Mulvihill and Tom O’Halloran gave Garrycastle  a 4 point halftime lead.   The third quarter was Garrycastle‘s best getting 3 points from Neil Rhattigan, Paul Gunning and Tom O’Halloran before Kilucan  added to their total with a point. A good save from Mark Keenan was followed by a goal from Tom O’Halloran after a great pass by Brian McCormack. This effectively ended the game as a contest and Kilucan  added two further points in the closing stages. 

This was a good performance by the Garrycastle  team with Anthony Larkin, Frank Farrell, Gavin Ward, Neil Rhattigan, Tom O’Halloran and Cathal Mannion  particularly prominent.
