Aghada GAA Notes
Main Club Sponsor – Irving Oil
Junior Hurling League Division 3 – Aghada 1-18 v Dungourney 1-05; 5/5/2017.
Our JB hurlers made it two for two with another impressive league win away to Dungourney last Friday the 5th of May. A strong wind blew straight down the field and Aghada were facing into it in the 1st half. Despite this, and thanks to a very solid defensive display, they led at half time on a 1-5 v 0-4 score line. The goal coming courtesy of full forward Paudie Wall. After the break, and with the elements behind them, Aghada dominated proceedings. With Kalen O’Donoghue impressing at midfield and Daniel Creedon scoring well upfront, Aghada won out by 12 points.
Aghada team – Ciaran O’Shea, Jake O’Donoghue, Andy O’Donoghue, Alan Creedon, Shane Wall, Tom O’Neill, Mark Healy, Ger Melvin, Kalen O’Donoghue, Aiden O’Connell, Conal Rabbitt, John Connolly, Daniel Creedon, Paudie Wall, Alan Walsh.
