Under 16 League
The team suffered their first defeat of the league away to Cill Chomain on Tuesday 28th on a score of 4-11 to 2-8. They remain top of their division with one league game left.

Under 14 League

The team gave a very good display in their league game against Davitts last Thursday and were very unlucky to lose by 2 points. Its only matter of time before they click into full gear and get a few wins under their belts. Well done lads, it was a very good game to watch and the same again next week and ye will all be enoying success.

Minor League
We lost by four points in what was a very entertaining game in Gilmartin Park, Kiltimagh on Friday night. In very wet condiitons a late penalty and two points gave Kiltimagh the win by 5-10 to 4-9.

Senior Div 1E
In a match that management will learn very little from as Lacken came to Robert McCallion Memorial Park on Saturday evening and played very little football. A very easy victory for Swinford by 3-9 to 0-2. Swinford scorers: Michael Walsh 1-1, James Lavin 0-3, Paul McDonagh 0-3, Caoimghin McLoughlin 1-0, Pearse Rowley 1-0, Kevin McDonagh 0-1, Pearse Walsh 0-1.

Senior Div 1C
We had no game last weekend in division 1C and the Club send their condolences to the family and friends of the late Peter Cosgrove and all involved with the Neale GAA Club.
