A GREAT DAY FOR OUR MINORS
Louth Minors had a day to remember in both codes today.
Leinster MFC Q/Final (Stabannan)
First up, our footballers took on Laois in a sun drenched Stabannan in the quarter final of the Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Football Championship. After impressively putting Westmeath away 2 weeks ago, Laois today were the opponents.
On an absolutely immaculate pitch, Louth were by far the better team for the majority of the game. Despite going down to 14 men after an incident as the teams entered the field for the second half, Louth were in complete control. Top scorer today was Kieran McArdle who helped himself to a whopping 4-01 out of Louths total of 4-07. Louth will now face Meath in the semi final in 2 weeks time.

Celtic Challenge Round 2 (Darver)
Our Hurlers had an excellent win today in the Second Round of the Celtic Challenge. Despite some of their players playing football earlier in the day, Louth finished the game stronger in Darver to overcome Monaghan. In a hugely entertaining game, dual star, Cameron Maher from St.Kevins, who earlier in the day captained the footballers to a win scored 3-00 and was beaten to top scorer on the day by fellow dual star Fionn Cumiskey who finished with a very impressive 2-04. Louth eventually won out 2 point winners on a score line of 5-14 to 6-13.
