Kilpeacon a combination of Ballybricken/Bohermore, Fedamore and Crecora won the minor East A football final beating Oola 1-7 to 0-9. In an evenly contested game we started with two early scores from Daniel Owens and Donnacha Connnolly, we failed to build on this and were unlucky to hit the crossbar twice in quick succession during this period . Kilpeacon kicked over one further point to leave the sides level 0-3 apiece at half-time, the match was firmly in the balance but our opponents started the second half well and after exchanging scores Oola led by two points going in to the last 10 minutes. The players never panicked and got what proved to be an all decisive score with an excellent team move finished to the net expertly by Shane O Connor in the closing minutes we exchanged frees and held out for a fine win by the minimum one point. In an excellent team performance special mention to Niall Mitchell and Darragh O Keefe who were outstanding on the day the trophy was presented to captain Donnacha Connolly and the team now advance to a county semi-final. Team from Team from John Bourke, Cian Enright, Patrick Byrnes (BB), Ciaran Humphries, Colin Haigney, Niall Mitchell (BB), Thomas Shanahan, Michael Martin (BB), Darragh O Keefe, Daniel Owens(BB), Donnacha Connolly, Killian Scanlon, Patrick Dolphin, Shane O Connor, Jack Dalton, Darragh Hogan(BB),  Ciaran Kennedy, Eoin Feeney, Rory Hannon, Padraig Byrnes, Eoghan O Connor and Sam Riordan.
