MULLINAVAT GAA-The 3rd round of the Intermediate league hurling championship took place in Mooncoin last Sunday afternoon where our opponents were near neighbours Glenmore. With weather conditions benign and a slight breeze blowing into the chapel end of the ground a good game was expected by supporters of both sides. Both teams served up exciting fare and with only 3 or so points separating the teams this match went right to the wire. See People Sport for full report.
