An extremely busy Thursday night of action on the GAA front.
We had a full round of fixtures in Division 1B where we had a number of upsets with second placed Ballyroan-Abbey and third placed Emo both losing.
Arles-Kilcruise extended their lead at the top with a one point win over Rosenallis and are now within touching distance of the final.
We also had three games in Division 1A and you can read a comprehensive round up of those here.
Finally, one of the first pieces of league silverware was handed out as The Heath defeated Castletown Slieve Bloom in an U-13 Division 2 Shield Final.
