They played very well on the evening with five U-16s, five minors and six seniors against a strong Beaufort team.

Well done to all involved players and team mentors.

The Desmonds senior men’s team drew with Ballymacelligott 3-11 each in round seven of the Co. League last Saturday evening in front of a large crowd.

With the score at 1-6 to 1-4 at half time in favour of the home side.

The second half of the game saw both sides score two goals each and we saw Steven Bartlett score a equalizing free from 40 yards out into the breeze to draw the game well into injury time.
