Páidí Ó Sé Tournament

Well done to the Milltown/Castlemaine boys who defeated Dublin side, Fingallians of Swords in the first round of the above tournament in Gallarus on Saturday.

The final score was M/C: 0-12 points, Fingallians 0-8 points.

However, their opponents in the semi-finals, An Ghaeltacht had the edge and after a tight tussle- M/C lost on a score line of 2-5 to 1-6. Míle buíochas to all involved in organising such a fantastic tournament.
