This league game played on a wet and windy evening in Kinnegad saw Garrycastle run out easy winners despite a very defensive performance by the opposition. Garrycastle’s approach to facing  a defensive formation was to push up on the opposition which proved worthwhile and was reflected in the scoreline. In control all through the game Garrycastle led by 0-8 to  0-2 at halftime. A goal from Tom O’Halloran early in the second half set the visitors on the road to victory. The management had the luxury of emptying the bench with ten minutes to go. After five rounds of games Garrycastle top the division with nine points. The next game in the league, away to St Lomans, is scheduled for Sunday May 6th.

GARRYCASTLE: Shane Moran, Bill Kelly, John Gaffey,  Gary McCallon,  James Dolan (0-3), Mark Curley, Mathew Guiheen, Aidan Browne,  Doran Harte (0-1), Tom O’Halloran (1-3), Eoin Monaghan, Michael Monaghan(0-1), James Sheeran, Alex Gardiner (0-1), Ger Henaghan (0-5,4 Frees).
