A well taken first half goal from Brian Conroy was the key score in earning the senior team a draw in an entertaining Masonite League Division 1 clash in Dromod on Sunday last. Bornacoola had some late chances to claim both points on offer but on balance a draw on a scoreline of 1-8 to 0-11 was a fair result.

Our best wishes to Ladies stalwart Niamh Reynolds (Esker) and fiancée Enda Delaney who are getting married this weekend. Niamh, daughter of George and Evelyn, is a primary school teacher and has been a terrific worker for the club for many years. She can currently be seen starring on the Bornacoola ladies team at the weekends. Meanwhile fiancée Enda is a devoted Laois football fan and while he also enjoys watching a bit of rugby, one suspects he gets little conversation out of brothers-in-law to be Shane and Seoirse on that particular subject!! Our best wishes to you both for long life and happiness together.
