Club Notes – Naomh Adhamhnáin – 02.04.12
Well done to the Seniors and Reserves who made the long trek to Kilcar on Sunday and came home with full points. The Reserves had a resounding victory 2-13 to 0-06. The Seniors were trailing by 4 points half way through the second half and down to 14 men after the harsh dismissal of John Haran but a late flurry saw them come back to win by five points on a score of 2-12 to 1-10 after a very good team performance.
