Championship week 1
Our 2017 season kicked off with two Dublin clubs taking to the field on Saturday 25th March, Na Fianna V Limekiln in all three competitions. Limekiln had a hat-trick of wins on the day.
On Sunday the 26th of March our reigning ladies champions began the defence of their title with a win over St.Croans in Tymom Park.
On that same day, Breaffy after a few years break, made a return to senior competition facing Greenhills in Longford. Both teams showing excellent Rounders skills, Breaffy pipping Greenhills 7-6.
The following Sunday had matches across Ireland. First up in Laois, Clonaslee took on Cuchulainn of Carlow in an exceptional game of Rounders, With Cuchulainn taking the match 9 V 8.
As the first match of the day came to an end our attention moved to West Meath, where Bagenalstown's first match in over a decade for mixed competition, took place against Ballinagore. Great hitting, catching & some laughs were had with the Carlow natives coming out on top.
Roscommon was the last venue for game week 1. This brought our two new ladies teams together, Roscmommon Gaels V Michael Glaveys. Both teams had a enjoyable day on the pitch for their first ever game. Michael Glaveys making it a winning start for their club.
