In difficult conditions our Seniors began their championship season against Na Piarsaigh last Friday. Playing against the breeze we got off to a great start with Mike Fitzgerald hitting the net with our first score. Na Piarsaigh were quick to respond and had run into a commanding lead in the first 15 minutes of the game with David Breen hitting the net. Barry Murphy added 2 pointed frees to leave us 5 behind at the break, 1.09 to 1.04. We began the second half brightly and were adding some nice points from play. All ouor hard work was cancelled when Na Piarsaigh goaled to leave us 6 behind. We rallied again with 3 more points but David Breen hit the net again for his second and Na Piarsaighs third goal of the night to once again leave us 6 behind with 15 minutes to play. Darragh O'Donovan goaled from a free to leave the losing margin at 2 points.
