Our div 3 panel had two outings in the league this past week.  On Wednesday last they traveled to Egan Park to play Forgney.  This was a wet evening that was difficult for playing football.  The opening score was a goal to the home side.  Peter Mimnagh landed a free after a foul on himself.  Our opponents pointed again with Dermot Reilly pulled a point back from play.  Forgney picked off a further 4 points from play before a Dermot Reilly point from play left the half time score Dromard 0.3 St. Munis 1.5.  The second half saw Dromard gain an upper hand outscoring the opposition 1-5 to 0.2 with the goal coming from Conal Murphy.  The comeback fell short by a point with the game finishing on the score Dromard 1.8 St. Munis 2.6.  This was a very good showing from our players which will give confidence for the fast approaching championship.  Team and scorers.  Danny Pettit, Stephen Kenny, James Conefrey, Thomas Conefrey, Conor Kiernan, Enda Kiernan (0.1), James Kenny, Ronan Smith, Martin Mc Gee (0-1), Liam Doherty, Dermot Reilly (0.4), Conal Murphy (1.1), Kevin Hourican, Peter Mimnagh (0.1) 1 free.  On Sunday Shroid were visitors to Pairc na Gael in our second div 3 fixture of the week.  The day was dry and calm and when the ball was thrown in it was Dromard who scored first through an Enda Macken free and a Kevin Hourican point from play.  The first half continued with the scores staying close throughout.  At haf time the score was Dromard 0.6 Shroid 0.4.  The second half saw our players play very well and gradually extend their lead.  The full time score was Dromard 2.17 Shroid 0.7.  Team and scorers.  Danny Pettit, Conor Kiernan, James Conefrey, Thomas Conefrey, Niall Berry, Ronan Smith, Peadar Kiernan (1.2), Niall Mc Manus (0.1), Peter Mimnagh (0.4) 1 free, Liam Doherty, Dermot Reilly (0.4), Enda Macken (0.2) 1 free, Conal Murphy, Kevin Hourican (0.1), Martin Mc Gee (1.3). 

On Friday last our seniors traveled to Lynch Park to play Abbeylara to play All County League.  Constant rain and a stiff breeze made conditions for playing difficult.  We played with the advantage of the breeze in the opening half.  We had a good share of the early possession.  A free awarded for a foul on Gary Maguire was converted by Francis Mc Gee to open the scoring.  The home team opened their account with 2 points (1 free, 1 play).  A Francis Mc Gee point from play level matters.  Abbeylara hit a purple patch scoring scoring an unanswered 4 points (3 frees, 1 play).  A pointed free from James Martin following a foul on Gary Maguire proved to be the final score of the half.  The half time score was Dromard 0.3 Abbeylara 0.6.  A Francis Mc Gee free following a foul on Peter Reynolds was the first score of the second half.  The home team converted a pair of frees to reestablish a 3 point lead.  James Martin  converted a free following a foul on himself.  Our opponents responded with a point from play before Francis Mc Gee landed brace (1free, 1 play) to reduce the margin to 2 points.  Abbeylara came back strongly scoring 3 points from play.  We refused to give up and hit an unanswered 3 points (2 play, 1 free) but the full time whistle then sounded ensuring the points stayed at home.  Team and scorers.  Damien Sheridan, David Pettit, Peter Masterson, James Mimnagh, Paul Mc Gee (0-1), Peter Reynolds, Padraig Mc Nerney, Bernard Sheridan, John Sheridan, Emmet Masterson, James Martin (0-3) 3 frees, Micheal Reilly, Ronan Mc Entire, Francos Mc Gee (0-6) 3 frees, Gary Maguire.  Subs used. Donie Conefrey, Noel Reynolds, Gavin Mc Nerney.  Other subs on the evening Cathal Conefrey, Enda Kiernan, Kieran Mc Stay, Niall Mc Manus and Conal Murphy.  

Well done to Longford juniors who have qualified for a Leinster final when the overcame Cavan in Pearse Park on Wednesday last.  Well done to James Martin who came on to good effect during the course of the game. 

Best of luck to Julia Smith Kiltycon who starts her new business Essential Energetics this week.  Julia opens a clinic in Cavan town where she will be offering treatments to the public in the fields of Bio Energy Therapy. 

We offer our condolences to the Hynes family Ballymore on their bereavement.
