Our intermediate team clinched a first senior league title for the club since 2004 on Friday night courtesy of a 0-10 to 0-8 replay win over Ballymote in the Division Three league final. Once again, the team showed tremendous grit to dig out the result, having trailed 0-5 to 0-0 after the first 25 minutes. Thereafter the team hit their stride, and finished strongly to earn promotion back to Division Two. Congratulations and well done to manager Pat Darcy, selector Karl Finnerty and all the players on securing the title in memorable fashion in front of a large travelling support.

Commiserations to Ciaran O’Dowd, Josh Ellis, Eoin Hallinan and the Sligo minor team on their agonising one-point loss to Derry in the All-Ireland quarter-final last weekend.
