The County Championship rolls around this weekend with Kierans being paired off against a strong-looking Feale Rangers side. There has been trojan work been done in the club the past number of weeks to bring the grounds up to Championship standard and its fair to say come the throw in time of 7pm tomorrow evening that the pitch and the surrounds will be in immaculate condition – all that will be required for a footballing spectacle are two teams chomping at the bit and maybe some glorious sunshine!!

The conditions on Sunday last were poor to say the least and sadly the standard of football in this one was very much the same. Cordal played with a slight aid of a crossfield breeze and driving rain in the first half and sadly could not get to grips to the game from the off. An error in defense lead to the opening score of the game which lead to the Senans midfielder passing into the back of the net. Handling was proving difficult for both teams but it was the visitors passing and distribution which was costing them the opening half. Kieran O Donoghue pointed the opener for Cordal before Sean Og O Ciardubhain, who had an excellent day at long distance placed balls, converting 3 in a row – one a 55 yarder with a tricky breeze. Senans were showing their class from frees also with their corner forward knocking over a brace which brought it to half time on a scoreline of 1-05 to 0-04. Cordal were up against it second half and narrowed the gap early on but they were still making too many mistakes all over the field, this coupled with poor tackling lead to Senans knock a couple more over to keep the visitors at bay. The game entered the final quarter and frustrations were showing which ended with Cordal’s Tim O Donoghue seeing red along with the Senans midfielder and goal-keeper. The game seemed to pieter out after this and after another couple of pointed frees from both sides the final whistle was blown leaving the scoreline 1-08 to 0-8. A poor day at the office for the boys in blue and gold, individual errors, turnovers and no score from play have cost the side the two points, lets hope for a change come the field opening against Firies next month.
Team: Sean Og O Ciardubhain (0-5), Billy Cronin, Paudie Walsh, Tomas Brosnan, Daniel O Connor, Johnny O Connor, Niall O Ciardubhain, John Brosnan, Donal McCarthy, Mossie Enright, Kieran O Donoghue (0-1), Micheal Cahill, Tommy O Mahoney , Padraig Dignan (0-2), TJ O Connor
