Back on St Stephens Day we had our annual exiles match which was great Craic once again. It was great to see former players back from overseas and across the country dusting off their boots for the game which, funnily enough, ended in a draw once again, 6-9 to 3-18, meaning the Exiles retain their trophy! Thanks to James McGinley for refereeing and everyone who came out on the day and joined in on the fun. See you all at same time, same place next year!
A number of our players were involved in games with and against county opposition at the weekend. Darragh Black was on the bench for Donegal in their 4-13 to 2-20 defeat to UUJ in the McKenna Cup on Sunday, while in Leinster Jonny Logue wore number 6 for Carlow IT in their 5-18 to 0-4 defeat to Offaly in the O’Byrne Cup. In Connachts FBD League Cathal McGettigan scored 0-2 for Sligo IT who lost 6-21 to 0-15 to Roscommon.
