Our Senior men recorded another win on Saturday night last when they beat Eastern Harps on a scoreline of 1-11 to 1-10. Tourlestrane led at the interval on a scoreline of 0-7 to 0-3 but Eastern Harps finished strong with a goal in the last few minutes. Brian Egan was top scorer with a tally of 1-5. The team on duty was Padraig McVeigh, Diarmuid Dunne, Colin Neary, Barry Walsh, JF Carr, Shane Dunne, James Leonard, Cathal Henry, Stephen Henry, John Marren, Patrick Harte, John Kelly,
Kenneth Gavighan, Brian Egan and Eamonn O'Hara.
The game marked Adrian Mc McIntyre's welcomed return to the playing field, but unfortunately the game also marked Seamus Gildea's last game. The club would like to extend best wishes to Seamus who is
leaving for Canada in the coming days.
After 5 rounds of the Divison 1 league, the team have won 2 games: St. Mary's and Eastern Harps, drew 2 games: Curry and Tubbercurry and lost 1 game: Coolera/Strandhill. The team play Drumcliffe/Rosses Point in round 6 of the league on Sunday next, the 11th of May, at 2pm in Oxfield Park.
