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.
Swinford GAA have entered into an arrangement with the Vodafone shop on Market Street where you will earn points on certain transactions which will turn into sponsorship for the club when we reach 700 points. When you are shopping within the store please mention Swinford GAA when you are paying.
