Important club meeting for all club officers, managers and finance committee this Thursday at 9pm in the clubhouse.

Intermediates played their play-off championship game against Ahascragh/Fohenagh with the game ending in a draw after extra-time on a final score line of 3-16 to 0-25 with reply fixed for this weekend with winner going through to Prem-Q-Final. This is the 2nd time both teams have played one another with both teams still tied. In what was a very entertaining game played in the right spirit in a very competitive encounter, Abbey aided by the breeze in the 1st half started well with 2 points taken, however A/Fohenagh got in to their stride and match Abbey point for point with Abbey, a fortuitous goal from a long ball from P Flaherty late in the half where the ball bounced awkwardly with Abbey taking a narrow lead at half-time on a score line of 1-10 to 0-11. The 2nd half continued much in the same vain as the 1st, however Abbey got a break with a goal from a mistake in the full back-line and the ball was scrambled in the net by a joint effort by B O'Donnell & D Collins which gave some day light between the teams. A/Fohenagh were unfazed and upped the pace which began to have its toll with Abbey conceding some needless frees which were duly taken by a man of the match performance by the young A/Fohenagh player, Cathal Mannion (0-16, 11F). As the game entered the final 5 minutes Abbey trailed by 3 points, realizing exit from the championship was imminent, Abbey were in search of a much needed a goal and were duly awarded a deserving 21m. free in the final minute which P Flaherty dispatched to the net to send the game into extra time. Extra time continued in the same mould with both teams trading points, Abbey could have finished off the game but for some wayward shooting, however a draw was a fair result at the end as no team deserved to lose with replay penciled in for this weekend. Overall the team played reasonably well, considering the long championship lay-off, but to progress they will need to be much sharper & focused and reduce the number of frees conceded. For the record the team was Declan Molloy, John Blade, Tommy Farragher, Danny Mullins, David Coleman, Kieran Flaherty (0-1), John Culkin (0-1), Padraig O'Donnell (0-3), Ronan Cooley, Paul Flaherty(2-6, 2-5F) , Brian Flaherty (0-1), Brian O'Donnell (0-1), Darren Collins (1-0), Brian Cooley (0-1), Padhraic Mac Maghnuis (0-1). Subs: Eoin Flaherty (0-1), Eoin Blade, Caolin Blade, Ger Ruane, Coleman Maher. Intermediate training continues Friday evening at 6.30pm. The replay has been fixed for Saturday evening at 5pm in Turloughmore.
