Weekly Update 18th March 2019
March 18, 2019
It was a quiet week on the playing front this week with bad weather ensuring all Macroom fixtures were rained off.
One game that did go ahead involving Macroom players was the opening round of Senior football championship in Pairc Ui Rinn on 18/03/2019. Muskerry took on Avondhu and ran out winners on a scoreline of 1-15 to 1-08 and were the superior side throughout. Macroom were represented by Fintan Goold at midfield who captained the side and David Horgan at wing forward, both chipped in on the scoreboard and were instrumental in the victory.
Muskerry now move on to play UCC in the next round Thursday night in Pairc Ui Rinn at 7:30 and may well see Macroom men on opposing sides as Alan Quinn is involved with UCC, best of luck to all involved on the pitch and Muskerry selector Tim O'Sullivan on the sideline!
The club would like to congratulate former player and current pro boxer Noely Murphy on a superb win in Boston Saturday night over Dubliner John Joyce as he improved to 13-1-1, Noely continues to fly the Macroom flag proudly on the International stage and was in devastating form throughout dopping Joyce in the first and cruising to a well deserved unanimous decision.
