St Dominics second team lost out to a very strong St. Ronans first team on Sunday last in Knockcroghery. St. Ronans were always in control of this game but a goal and a point from Aidan Fallon and a brace of points from Tom Gilleran kept St Dominics in touch who went in at the break trailing 1-10 to 1-3.
