This was above all a fantastic team performance and fought for with great conviction and determination. Thomas Hickey scored 0-7 – four from frees.

The results sets the scene for a battle royal in the county league with four teams in contention for the three promotion places.

Chernobyl Children on Club Visit

It would be nice to see as many locals as possible there to show their support.


The Maine Valley Post has, is and always will be a free resource for the people of the locality and its wider diaspora.

When we started in 2013, the intention was to be a weekly, online newsletter. Over time, the site has evolved into a much different beast with multiple updates on a daily basis.
Because of its nature as a digital publication, it brings with it certain expenses: computers and cameras that require updating and maintenance; internet hosting and access; to say nothing of the time and hard work that goes into the site. It all adds up…
Our online community has always been our greatest asset and a vocal supporter of the Maine Valley Post since day one.
