Drumcliffe/Rosses Point GAA Club Notes (9 May 2017)

Our club captain Neil Ewing scored the opening point and led Sligo to a 1-21 to 1-13 win over New York at rain-drenched Gaelic Park in the preliminary round of the Connacht Senior Football Championship on Sunday evening. This fixture was always fraught with danger so credit to Niall Carew and the players. All-Ireland finalists Mayo are next up for the Yeats County on May 21st in Castlebar at 2pm.
