Round-Up of Weekend County Championship Action

Coolera/Strandhill are the new County Senior Hurling Champions in the Yeats County after a 2-25 to 3-10 win over Naomh Eoin in an exciting game on Sunday.

Elsewhere, a dramatic and action packed Sligo Intermediate Football Final played will have to be replayed as Shamrock Gaels and Curry couldn’t be seperated 0-17 to 2-11. Curry sharpshooter Adrian Marren received the man of the match award as he led his sides fightback having been behind for most of the afternoon, and in fact they had chances to win it towards the end. The next installment will  take place next Sunday, the 28th of October at 2pm in Bunninadden Community Park. Click the link for some shots from the drawn game:
