Shillelagh v Stratford Grangecon v Stratford Grangecon

While Shillelagh very sportingly agreed to play the match on Friday rather than on Saturday, thus allowing the Stratford Grangecon lads enjoy Noelle and Richard’s wedding on Saturday , however that was the extent of their generosity.
Stratford Grangecon opened the score with a point from Eoin O’Neill but was quickly followed by a well taken Shillelagh goal and for the next 10 minutes Shillelagh served it up to Stratford Grangecon to add another couple of points to their tally, however their siege was lifted when the Stratford Grangecon youngster Sean O’Neill rammed home a well taken goal. Once again the veteran Kieran Byrne penetrated the Shillelagh defence with a goal of his own.
The Stratford Grangecon side were now getting to grips with the spirited Shillelagh challenge and when Mark Landon raced through to drive home the third goal the League points were assured.
The half back line of Paddy Walsh, Jason Bolger and Eoin O’Neill not only broke down the Shillelagh challenge but also provided the spring board for many of the Stratford Grangecon attacks, and young player Adam Doyle produced another fine display from his corner back position.
Final Score was Shillelagh 1 – 5 Stratford Grangecon 3 – 7

It’s heads down now until Stratford Grangecon meet Kilcoole in the first round of the Championship on Friday the 30th May in Roundwood at 7.30pm
