Carrickshock 0-13 Tullogher Rosbercon 0-6
Following a year in the Intermediate grade, Carrickshock bounced straight back to senior ranks, with a decisive win over Tullogher Rosbercon in the Michael Lyng Motors Intermediate Final in front of a crowd of almost 3,500 in Nowlan Park on Sunday. Having played against the wind in the first half the Tullogher side must have fancied their chances at the break as they were just 4 points in arrears (0-7 to 0-3). They were still just 3 points behind midway through the second half and the dismissal of Carrickshock captain John Tennyson must have given them great hope. However it was the Carrickshock side who responded best in the final quarter and ran out convincing winners. Picture shows Co Board Chairman Ned Quinn presenting the trophy to Carrickshock captain John Tennyson. Also in picture is Michael Lyng of Competition sponsors Michael Lyng Motors. Carrickshock now meet Kiltale of Meath in Trim on Saturday 19th Nov at 2pm.
