Congratulations and well done to all involved with Kilmeena GAA who completed a child protection course on Wednesday, 12th April
Kilmeena 0-14 Killala 1-8
On a blustery afternoon on Sunday last Kilmeena hosted killala in the first league match of the season. There has been little between these teams over the past few years, and this time Kilmeena edged a tough and at times tetchy encounter.
The home lads started well, and playing with the breeze had edged 3 points clear in the first quarter. Adding on another brace going into the second quarter it was looking good, but then kilmeena lost their way slightly by getting involved in a niggly battle with their opponents. At half time, we turned around with a four point lead.
In the second half Kilmeena started very well, and in spite of turning around into a stiff breeze they kept a 5 point margin between them and the visitors. In this period a fine save from keeper Sean McGreal kept killala at bay and with the game coming to a close the Kilmeena lads seemed to be finishing stronger by pushing the margin out to 6. The visitors were getting desperate with some wild shooting, but their efforts brought a last minute penalty goal which was a mere consolation on the day.
This was a very good team performance and best for Kilmeena were Neil Duffy, Seanie McGreal, and Niall Ryan.
Scorers R Feehan 0-4(2f), D keavney 0-3, C Heanue 0-1, N Feehan 0-1, C Madden 0-1, S Staunton 0-1, N Ryan 0-1, P Groden 0-1, A Ryan 0-1
