Huge congratulations to our Senior and Intermediate lads, on earning the club a League double on Saturday!
In the Intermediate game the team came back strong from a half-time deficit to win out against St. Mikes with a final score of 4-19 to 4-12.
In the Senior game the boys went into half-time at 2-6 to 0-6 up. They then weathered a comeback from Durham Robert Emmets, going down by a couple of points at one stage, and then the loss of crucial Gaels player Darragh McNamara to an horrific knee injury, about half way through the second half (We wish him a speedy recovery). Ultimately the Gaels responded well to this setback, showing great character to win the game with a final score of 4-9 to 2-9.
This was the Gaels first Senior League win since 1999, and a great way to start the club's 30th season.
