Athlone 2-17 Mullingar Shamrocks 2-12

Our senior men deservedly earned their first win of this year’s championship when they accounted for Mullingar Shamrocks in a thrilling game played in Tubberclair on Sunday evening.  Two brilliant first half goals from Noel Mulligan and Alan Gaughan and some excellent points from John Connellan, John Egan, Jordan Marshment and Mickey Greene helped Athlone to a 2-10 to 2-5 half time lead, and despite Mullingar reducing the deficit to the minimum late on, late scores from Ryan Gaffey and John Connellan gave Athlone a five point win.  

Athlone’s next game is against Tyrellspass on Wednesday the 23rd in Tang (7pm) and their final game is against St Loman’s in Rochfortbridge on Sunday, August 27th (7pm)
