Intermediate Championship: St Barrys 0-12 St Michaels 0-9
St Barrys enjoyed a hard fought win over old rivals St Michael’s in a sunny Cootehall in the 1st game of the Intermediate Championship. The foundations of the win were laid in the first few minutes, when 3 points in the opening minutes helped Barry’s to a 6-1 lead. Michael’s fought back to only trail by two at halftime, setting up a ding-dong second half. Try as they might, St Michael’s just couldn’t get level. Martin Guildford and David Keenan scored two crucial points in quick succession for St Barry’s to open a 4 point lead entering injury time, and they held out comfortably on a scoreline of 12 points to 9.
Team: Ronan Mitchell, Barry Brennan, Aaron Murtagh, Sean Gannon, Ray Rogers, Trevor Murtagh, James Bennett Snr, Ciaran Garraghan, David Keenan(0-1), James Bennett Jnr(0-1) , John Murtagh(0-3), Ronan McGowan, Emmett Conroy, Finbar McGowan(0-4), Alan Callaghan(0-1).

Ladies lose out in League
St Barry’s Adult Ladies were beaten by Michael Glaveys in their league game on Sunday. The 1st half was evenly contested, and good Barry’s play created several goal chances, but we were unable to convert, while Glaveys were able to convert the chances that came their way. The loss of Claire McGlynn, Maebh Holmes & Rebecca Cox either side of halftime proved too much of a mountain to climb, and Glavey’s ended up convincing winners in the end.
Team: Rebecca Cox, Rhiannon Cox, Jane McGowan, Geraldine Farrell, Michelle Cahill, Jaimie Fallon, Amy Cousins, Meabh Holmes, Oonagh Farrell, Lisa Murtagh, Denise Bennett, Claire McGlynn, Aine Halpin, Ailish O’Reilly, Laura Beirne, Shauna Rogan, Sarah McVeigh.
