Senior Team

Tourmakeady 0-14   Kilmeena  2-8
Kilmeena travelled to tourmakeady on saturday evening for a tough assignment against the hosts in Tourmakeady, and came away with a very creditable draw.
The game started off at a rattling pace with both teams exchanging early scores. Kilmeena was struggling to cope with Tourmakeadys movement while at the other end Kilmeena were keeping the host defence busy. Tourmakeady edged in front, but were hit with a defensive lapse and Darragh keavney pounced to score an opportunist goal. As half time approached, Kilmeena stretched their lead to a 3 point lead at the break.
After the break the hosts threw everything at Kilmeena and within minutes were level with some quick scores. To their credit, the Kilmeena lads steadied the ship and fought their way back into the game, and with the clock running down, Darragh Keavney pounced again to put away a fine goal. The home teams pressure paid off with two late scores, and at the end either team had their chances to win the game. However, a draw was probably the right result between two very evenly matched teams.
This was a tough very physical battle, but the kilmmena lads acquitted themselves well, and it speaks volumes for their durability at hanging in there when the game seemed to be ebbing away from them. They have made a fine start to the League and will be seeking to push on in the coming games to establish themselves as one of the clubs challenging for league honours.
Best for Kilmeena Niall Duffy, Liam Heanue, Darragh Keavney

Kilmeena      1  -  08      3   -   14      Kiltimagh

On Sunday last Kilmeena travelled to Kiltimagh for our first competitive fixture of the season. This was a very significant day for Sean McGreal, Jack Staunton, Kevin Ryder who made their senior debuts. The hosts were County Intermediate finalists last year, and they would prove to be tough opponents.
The game started with Kilmeena taking the game to their hosts and points were exchanged in a fairly even opening quarter. Kiltimagh started to take control with their strong running game and ended the half well on top.
Kilmeena tightened up significantly in the second half, and although always struggling to maintain possession, they finished well with a flurry of scores.
Kilmeena scorers  Ryan Feehan 0-7(3f), Joey Smyth 1-1
