Minor B Championship

Our minors were beaten by a very good Louisburgh team in the semi final of the Mayo B Championship by 2-11 to 0-7. It was a tough day on the field but the team have done well this year winning the East Mayo A Title for the first time in 9 years. Well done to all the players and management for their effort put in throughout the season.

Senior League Division 1C

A bad in the office for us on Sunday lunchtime as we were on the wrong end of a scoreline away to Islandeady of 4-9 to 1-8. Swinford scorers: Eoin Gallagher 0-5, Michael Walsh 1-0, Liam Moran 0-2, Paul McDonagh 0-1. This puts at end to our chances of promotion this year. We have two home games left against Mayo Gaels and Achil in Division 3C so lets give ourselves something to work on next year.
