Ballyhegan Davitts enjoyed weekend success over St Michael’s Newtownhamilton by 1-11 to 1-3 - with late scores from Conall McKeever capping a strong individual display within the team triumph.

Sunday’s meeting at Ballyhegan Park offered the opportunity for two points before the league split but early scoring proved sluggish due to difficult conditions.

A goal was awarded to St Michael’s despite Ballyhegan protests but the hosts hit back thanks to Shane McKeever and James McKeever.

Mark Hughes registered his first point of the fixture before Shane McKeever won back possession and fed Conall McKeever for the latter to drill home a long-range goal.

James McKeever increased his tally after the interval but the second-half scoring was dominated by Conall McKeever towards the well-earned win.

Key performances also arrived from Barry Morgan, Daniel McKeever, Roger McCormick and Mel Courtney.


Tir na nOg’s senior ladies finished out in front against St Paul’s for league progress despite a five-point half-time deficit.

Meabh Toman, Aiveen McKeown, Dearbhla Guy, Laura Forker, Clioa Creaney, Sophie Weir and Nuala McVeigh helped secure the turnaround in fortunes.
