Orla Reidy after finishing 5th in the All-Irelands in Waterford
Blackhall Gaels suffered another home defeat in Division 2 of the Meath SFL when they lost out to Rathkenny on a full time score of 1-18 to 2-10 in Kilcloon. Two second half goals from Alan Nestor helped the hosts come from nine points down at half time to level proceedings going into the final five minutes but Rathkenny kicked on again to win by five. Nestor top scored for Blackhall with 2-5. The loss leaves Liam Keane’s men with only two points from a possible ten and they will need to start picking up some wins soon to avoid dropping down to Division 3.
This morning it’s the turn of the second team as they welcome Navan O’Mahoneys to Kilcloon in Division 2 of the B League.
Blackhall Gaels senior ladies game against neighbours Moynalvey, scheduled for Saturday evening, was postponed due to an unplayable pitch.
