On Wednesday night last, our Intermediate took on Knockavilla Kickhams in the County Quarter final.

We travelled to Ballyporeen to play under light at 8pm, but it was worth the late night. Our boys got off to a great start with some great football. We had gained a great lead at half time on a scoreline of Moyle Rovers 0-9 to Knockavilla 0-2. In the second half we had goals from Liam Carey & Philip Quirke to win comprehensively. Final Score Moyle Rovers 2-14 Knockavilla 1-4. Well done to all the team and their mentors.

Our Senior Footballers faced Arravale Rovers in the County Football Championship, As always there was very little between the sides. Despite having the advantage of the extra man, we went in at half time Moyle Rovers 1-5 Arravale Rovers 0-6.
