Championship exit


Mooncoin were the visitors to Muckalee for the first round of the Senior Football championship . With the away side playing with the aid of a gale force wind the hosts did really well to be level at the break 0-5 each. Mooncoin were on top for the opening quarter scoring some great points. Muckalee got their first score of the half in the fifteenth minute and pushed for victory right to the end put is was not enough although they can bemoan some bad finishing and bad luck hitting the cross bar in each half. Final score 0-12 to 0-9.

League ends


Muckalee travelled to play their last game in the Senior Football League against Mullinavat. On a cold but dry morning it was the County Champions from last year that prevailed due to better finishing when they got their chances. Half time score 2-6 to 0-5 . Despite upping their game in the second period it was not enough to unsettle Mullinivat who ran out winners 4-12 to 1-9, Bryan Byrne scoring the goal for Muckalee, Jack Farrell acquited himself well on his first start for the Seniors. Next outing is the first round of the championship v Mooncoin in Muckalee
