Our Intermediate ladies made it 2/2 on Sunday when they beat Eastern Harps by the narrowest of margins. The team were without a few regulars but welcomed back the return of Nikki Brennan. The team worked hard to the end with great combination work from Annmarie Kelly and Megan Gavigan to secure the second half goal which proved to be the difference between the teams. The final score 2-7 to 1-9. The team on duty was: Laura McIntyre, Jenny Lundy, Laura Walsh, Laura Neary, Edel Meers, Shauna Henry (C), Sarah Brennan, Tracy O'Hara, Claire Colleran, Anna Corcoran, Katie Walsh, Claire McIntyre, Annmarie Kelly, Nikki Brennan, Siobhan Carty. Subs: Sophie Leonard, Sinead Mooney and Megan Gavigan. 
The team play neighbours Curry in the third round in an away tie next weekend. Time and date of the game will be on Facebook and Twitter later in the week.
The club would like to welcome Laura McIntyre to our club. Speedy recovery is also wished to Grainne Carty and Niamh Kelly who picked up injuries in recent games.
