Tir na nOg seniors battled back to sit on level terms against Granemore before a goal by the hosts settled the league date.

The defeat by 1-11 to 0-11 arrived as Granemore pushed on from a four-point half-time lead to hold the upper hand ahead of a spirited Tir na nOg response.

However, the crucial moment resulted in Granemore grabbing the game’s only goal towards closing success.

Paul Carvill’s free handed Tir na nOg the upper hand but Granemore made the most of the wind advantage.

A long-range effort from Carvill found a path between the posts against the breeze before Pauddy Judge’s slick solo effort.

Brian Mallon left Tir na nOg down by four points entering the break.

Play across the second half featured strong defending early on before Paul Carvill’s free and a Shea Conaty effort.

Paul Carvill’s brace, a Brian Mallon free and angled effort from Shea Conaty put Tir na nOg on the same tally as Granemore.

Hopes of a late boost were dashed when Tir na nOg conceded the only goal, with Johnny McGurgan’s injury-time point little consolation.

The under eights enjoyed home success against Maghery, with the under 10s lining out against Clan na Gael for Go Games fixtures. The under 12s won at St Peter’s.
