Weekly Notes 20-08-2018
The Junior Footballers took on Diarmuid O Mathunas in their final league game in Division 1last Tuesday evening in Leap. This turned out to be a very one sided affair as the Kilmacs cruised to a 4-14 to 0-4 victory. This result guarantees that the team will finish top of Division 1 with a total of 13 points from 8 games, which qualifies the team for their 3rd league final in four years.
