The Shelmalier 3rd team took on Gusserane’s 2nd team on Saturday evening in Hollymount and recorded a narrow 0-7 to 0-6 victory with a last minute point from sharpshooter Conor Byrne separating the sides.

It was a well contested and enjoyable game throughout the hour. Conor Byrne was the Shels main marksman, scoring 0-6 from frees, the last one coming in the last minute of the game and Willie O’Shaughnessy scored 0-1 from play. However, Denis Kelly ran the show at centre back with Conor O’Shaughnessy and Paddy Murphy playing well in the full back line and Darren Shiggins and Jamie Horan tried very hard at mid-field.
