Match no. 1 versus St Andrews Of Carlow was played today. A nervy one from a supporters point of view… is an understatement… but, the lads were always ahead in the game. Never once behind.

If you weren’t able to make it…. I was of course covering the match by internet live text over at – click here and apart from one St Andrews supporter 😉 I did get a little heated with Nookie Senior on one side and me screaming at the ref on the other side… so my apologies for the odd error…

The match report [as I reported it] is below…. obviously its back to front but you get the gist if you can’t make the next match and want to log on… There’s also a file of photographs that I took over here at  – some of these are below…
