Knocket:Ballinasloe 16, Creggs 13

Ballinasloe and Creggs served up some very exciting fare at frosty Moher on Sunday with the home side holding out for a three point win.

Knocket:Ballinasloe 15 Dunmore 6

Ballinasloe returned to winning ways on Sunday when overcoming Dunmore by 15pts to 6, following disappointing defeats in their previous outings.

The visitors were first […]
