On Friday last our seniors travelled to Michael Fay Park to play Longford Slashers in round 6 of the All County league.  We opened the scoring with a pointed free.  The home side landed 2 points to move ahead.  We drew level with a well taken Diarmuid Masterson point from play.  The town side scored a brace with Declan Mimnagh replying with a point from open play.  Slashers had the last say of the half scoring the last score before the break.  The half time score was Dromard 0-03 Longford Slashers 0-05.  Our opponents had a dominant spell in the early stages of the second half scoring 2-03 with our only response being a pointed free.  This stirred our players into action and we rallied scoring an unanswered 1-03 to leave the final score Dromard 1-07 Longford Slashers 2-08.  Team and scorers;  Gavin McNerney, Paul McGee, Cathal Conefrey, David Pettit, Conor Duffy, Diarmuid Masterson (0-01), John Sheridan, Noel Reynolds, Donal Sheridan, Peadar Faughnan, Cían Mimnagh, Mícheál Reilly, James Martin (0-01) 1 free, Ronan McEntire, Declan Mimnagh (1-04) 3 frees.  Subs used;  Kevin Donohoe (0-01), James Mimnagh, Kieran McStay, Padraig McNerney and Gary Maguire.  On Sunday last our Div. 3 panel played Granard in Pairc na Gael.  This was a spirited performance from our team but it was the visitors who collected both points.  Team on the day;  Danny Pettit, Thomas Conefrey, Enda Kiernan, Conor Kiernan, Niall Berry, Donie Conefrey, Martin McGee, Dermot Reilly, Michael Reynolds, Sean McNerney, Mícheál Reilly, Kevin Hourican, Kevin Maguire, Kieran McStay.  Fixtures for next week are Reserve league Div. 1 at home with Abbeylara this Friday at 8pm and reserve league 4 on Saturday away to Killoe at 7.30pm.  Best of luck to Longford seniors who play Laois in the Leinster Championship on Sunday next in Pearse Park.  Best wishes to Longford minors who play Dublin in Parnell Park on Saturday next. Congratulations to Pete Faughnan Corglass who got engaged to Rosie Farrell Gowna recently.
