The Senior team got their season underway when they played Carrigallen away from home in the first round of the shield on Sunday last. The concession of three first half goals left us with a mountain to climb and despite a goal from Jonathan Duffy, Carrigallen held on for a four point victory – 4-7 to 1-12 – in an entertaining game.
The Bornacoola team and scorers were: Bobby Shanley, Daniel Canning, Conor Mc Cauley (0-1), Damian Mc Guinness, Niall Mc Gowan, John Mc Guinness, Shane Weasel Conroy, Colm Farrell (0-1), John Reynolds (0-1), Tommy Diffley (0-1), Trevor Howard, Jason Conroy (0-1), Jonathan Duffy (1-4), Mark Mc Closkey and Declan Shanley (0-3). Subs used: Feargal Howard, Gerry Gearty and Brian Conroy.
