Talking Points:
Dunboyne get Trimmed in Drumree.... Dunboyne\'s third team took to the field on a fine Sunny afternoon in Drumree hoping to end their Junior B campaign with at least one win. Trim entered this game in third place in the group still with a good chance of qualifying for the knock out stages. For Dunboyne the first victory came when they realised they had enough players for the game, which had the added benefit of meaning the management team of Liam Duggan and Adrian Carolan did not have to start. The warm up went well with Mickah Reilly unerring from his frees before the game. Dunboyne played with the wind in the first half and struggled to keep with Trim who notched up two goals despite the best efforts of Dunboyne\'s very veteran goalie Eanna McCloskey. Coming up to half time Dunboyne rallied and were putting Trim under some pressure and filled with confidence from his prematch warm up Mickah Reilly stepped up to narrow the gap even further, he took the free from 25 yards out and lofted it to the right and wide. During this period Killian Smith was showing that his skills are not only limited to hurling and displaying to the reasonably sized crowd that he is a limited enough footballer too. Both teams took to the break on a scoreline of Dunboyne 1.05 to Trim 2.09, Mickah Reilly and Eamonn Murphy extended their break by being taken off. Through the second half the Trim full forward line were causing Dunboyne a lot of trouble and they extended their lead in the early stages of the second half, manager Adrian Carolan decided the only course of action was to send in former Club senior footballer Liam Duggan to stem the tide. Trim had some former Senior players in their ranks too but to be fair their players played senior this century!!! In a throwback to his playing days \"Duggie\" went down injured before he even got to touch the ball, he survived however to see out the remainder of the second half. Trim continued on the front foot and increased their lead, it would have been more but Dunboyne were helped by some stout defending by Oscar Braun, Aodh Sweeney, Sean Nealon, Dan Commiskey and a top drawer save from Eanna once again. Eamonn Murphy returned following his rest and did his best work linking the defence to attack, he also kicked a great ball straight out to touch, but appwared puzzled when Dunboyne didn\'t get the put in to thensure line-out. Dunboyne finished the game with a great score from the very impressive Ronan Duggan, who along with a couple of his team-mates may yet progress to higher ranks this year, while the Junior D management team will have seen a few players well capable of making that grade. Another positive for the club was Adrian Carolan was an un-used sub and is now available for the remaining Junior D games. The game finished out on a scoreline of Dunboyne 2.10 Trim 4.22.


Established in 1902 by Bob O’Keeffe, the hurling section of the club has been in existence for more than 100 years. It wasn’t until the late 1940s that the game of Gaelic Football was properly organised within the club and in 1952 it became known as St. Peter’s GAA Club. Today both football and hurling, along with the camogie and ladies football sections, are thriving.
