Minor B Championship

A very brave effort saw the Swinford ParkeKC team go down to a very late Ballyhaunis Gaels goal on a scoreline of Swinford ParkeKC 4-5 Ballyhaunis Gaels 3-10. The team came back from a six point half time deficit to lead going into injury time but to be denied. We were missing a lot of players and played a number of Under 16’s and came within 10 seconds of keeping our interest in the Championship alive. There is still one game left in the group stages of the Championship away to Bonniconlon.

Senior League Division 1E

We left ourselves with too much work to do with a very poor opening 25 minutes. At that stage we were 9 down and should possibly have been more save for bad shooting by Garrymore. From there on in we more than matched our opponents and brought the deficit back to 5 at the break. In the second half we narrowed it to 3 but unfortunately could not close it any further. The final score was Swinford 0-10 Garrymore 0-13.

Senior League Division 1C

In a gruelling game played with a very strong wind playing into the town end we enjoyed a very deserving win by 1-8 to Achill 1-5. Playing with the wind we went in at the break 1 point down but a very strong second half saw us take the crucial two points up for grabs. Full report at swinfordgaa.ie

Under 15 Division 3A

The lads bounced back from their narrow defeat to Hollymount-Carramore last week to enjoy an emphatic win away to Ballyhaunis by 5-10 to 7-11. Well done to all the team and management..
