St Mel’s Senior footballers win the McGee Cup Final

Well done to the senior football team who defeated Mercy Ballymahon in the final of the Longford Schools Senior competition on Thursday night in Emmet Park ,Killoe. St Mel’s have not played a competitive fixture over the past two months and Ballymahon had been very active in their run to the All Ireland Semi Final in the C championship but the boys in blue were very sharp dominating the scoring in the 1st half and leading by 9 points at the break. Ballymahon took some great points on the resumption and the game was back to 5 when Mels goaled again to ease out a 9 point win on a scoreline of St Mel’s 4-14  Mercy Ballymahon 1-14. It was a great game of open football and malaise of mass defenses was nowhere to be seen as the crowd were treated to a great game of football.

Well done to the panel of players and coaches Mr Quinn & Mr Cannon on finishing the season with silverware.
