Jim Bryne Cup

Shelmaliers Minor Football team got their defence of the Byrne Cup off to a winning start in Castletown last Sunday with a convincing 1:18 to 1:7 win.

A slow start meant that Castletown raced into an early 1:1 to no score lead. However the winners of this tournament for the last four years were not about to relinquish their crown easily and the Shels lads gradually found their form and by half time led by 5 points. The second half was all one way traffic as the holders put on a very impressive display scoring 11 points. They now go on to the quarter final where they travel to face the tournament favorites Fethard on Sunday week next 23 January at 2pm Best on the day were Eoin Nolan, Simon Donohue, Sean Byrne, James Cash and Dean Corrigan:
