Whilst most of the country was involved with the election counts, some of us were carrying on with the important things in life like sport. This was the Minors first match of the season and involved a drive down to Valencia, where we face St. Finian's. Unfortunately two or three of our key players were missing from the team and this was reflected in the final score of Valencia 3 - 16 to 0 - 9 Laune Rangers. The scorers for the match were Timmy Walsh - 4 points ; Jack O'Connor - 4 points and Liam Concannon - l point. The team was as follows: Liam McCarthy, Conor Healy, Michael Sheahan, Fergus Oman, Finan Brosnan, Luke Bradley, Liam Quirke, Jack O'Connor, John Lodder, Cian Healy, Michael O'Sullivan, Mikey McKenna, Gavin O'Shea and Timmy Walsh. Subs were Dylan Reidy, Colm Mahony, Ciaran Twiss and Gary O'Shea.
