In a one-sided Championship match played on a lush green surface in the banks this evening, Naomh Mhuire showed their recent form by totally dominating this Championship match. Seldom if ever has the pitch at Mullaghderg looked so well and the home side made full use of the conditions by playing an open game of attacking football from the off. As well as totalling 1-14, the home side could also afford the luxury of 13 wides.
Naomh Colmcille were dissapointing and played with little of the passion shown in the earlier league match here in March. Without their influential play maker Barry O Hagan and with County panellist Thomas McKinley kept scoreless, the visitors offered little and made it a long road home after an emphatic defeat.
For the lads its back to league duty for the next few weeks and the focus on the priority prize of promotion. 8 players contributed to the scores tonight and superior fitness and strenghth is obvious...all positive signs... so lets keep this fast train running right through to Division 2. Well Done Naomh Mhuire Seniors...Danny O Donnell and his mentors and a final word of thanks to the parks committee who had the surface looking county standard.
Present tonight was former player Shaun Burke, Kincasslagh , home from his work in Malmo, Sweden and enjoying the win.
