Division 2 League: We had a good victory last Friday night against St. Mochtas and gained two valuable league points. We had not a great first half but only went in at the break two points down but I have to say the second half performance was great. The lads scored 3-7 in the second half and we needed it all as the Mochtas never give up. This result makes you wonder how we lost the game in Drogheda last week; however no point looking back it’s onwards and upwards from now on, hopefully.

Best Wishes: Best wishes to O’Connells member and former player Ronan Wing Sharkey who get married to Regina McElroy next Saturday. Be careful Ronan “There was a man who muttered a few words in the church and found himself married. A year later he muttered something in his sleep and found himself divorced”. Good luck, have a great day and all the best for the future, from all at O’Connells GFC.
