COUNTY LEAGUE. It has been a roller coaster year for our senior footballers having been crowned Munster Junior “B” champions earlier in the year and have continued to impress in all competitions especially in the Credit Union County League Division 5 where mathematically the team are still in with a chance of promotion to Division 4, However for this to happen it would mean that Dr. Crokes “B” at Walsh Park, and away games to both Duagh and Sneem/Derrynane would have to be won and also that other results would have to go in our favour. Both Crokes and Duagh are will also be fighting for promotion; so that journey maybe difficult but where theirs life theirs hope.
