Bunninadden GAA Club Notes

U12 boys played Coolera/Strandhill on Monday evening last in Scarden, what was a very entertaining game. They won by a point with a final score of 17 to 16 points. The team also travelled to Croke Park on Wednesday last, great day was had by players coaches and parents.

U14 were defeated by St. Mary’s on Monday evening last in Bunnanadden Community Park in the 1st round of the league. They started with a very young team due to a number of players been injured or sick. Some excellent football was played in the first half and were only down by 3 points. In the second half St. Mary’s experience and physical dominance took its toll on our young lads. The next game is on Friday next the 21st of April away to St. Molaise Gaels at 7pm. All support for this game would be appreciated.

U16 played Eastern Harps on Monday evening last in Keash. A very tightly contested game on both sides. Great game of football with a disappointing result, it ending in a draw with a score 3:09 to 2:12.

Minor team were beaten by Shamrock Gaels by just 2 points. They had a very poor start giving the opposition a lead of 2:03 to 0:01 after a few minutes. Some excellent football was played once they settled and were level with 10 minutes to go. But a goal was conceded which ended the game.

The Seniors had a double header at the weekend. they played Easkey away on Friday evening and won well with a score 1:21 to 1:09. They played St. Michael’s away on Sunday with another win of 3:11 to 1:06. Well done lads.
