County Football League Division 3
Fr. Caseys 1-12 Mountcollins 2-11

Fr. Caseys Junior A Footballers began their county league campaign on Tuesday March 10th taking on local rivals Mountcollins away from home. This game would be a step up for our Junior footballers taking on an Intermediate side but that did not deter our youthful team containing large numbers of last years winning minor team. A very postive first half showing had Fr. Caseys leading 1-08 to 1-05 at the half time break. On the night we met a more experienced and clinical Mountcollins team that matched our challenge and with James Brouder flawless from placed balls it was the men from the valley that emerged with a narrow victory in the end. It was a very sporting game and Fr. Caseys will take away many postives from this perfromance. With some more games under their belt this young team can be a very strong force come the championship stages. Well done to all the players involved and many thanks also to JD Foley who managed the team on the night. The full time score was Fr. Caseys 1-12, Mountcollins 2-11.

County Football League Division 1
Fr. Caseys 0-12 Monaleen 0-07

Fr. Caseys Senior Footballers began their 2020 campaign on Saturday March 7th when they took on Monaleen in round 1 of the county league in Abbeyfeale. Both team traded early points, Monaleen aided by the elements looking the more dominant in the early exchanges. The teams would fail to score for the next 15 minutes, both sides guilty of missing kickable score in the extremely wet conditions. A pointed free, soon followed by a point from play put Monaleen in front and that lead could have been greater only for a superb one on one save from Sean Scannell. Two pointed frees from Jamie O'Connor had the sides level once more, the second free coming courtesy of an advanced mark won by Killian Sweeney. Monaleen would kick another brace of points before the break to leave the half time score Fr. Caseys 0-03, Monaleen 0-05. The city side had shaded the early proceedings but playing against the driving rain had hendered progress for the Abbeyfeale men.

The first point of the second half went to Monaleen but Fr. Caseys soon responded with two fine scores from play, first from John Lane and then from the ever busy Daniel Daly. A pointed free courtesy of the advanced mark restored Monaleens two point lead but this would be the last score of the day from the city club as Fr. Caseys eventually found their groove and owed the closing 20 minutes. A second Daniel Daly point was soon followed by a pointed free from DJ Stack. Cormac Roche then got in on the act with a superb long range score to put Fr. Caseys in front. A pointed free from Jamie O'Connor followed by three pointed frees from DJ Stack completed the scoring as Fr. Caseys ran out victors with 5 points to spare. A postive start to the league campaign and hopefully the good results keep coming. The full time score was Fr. Caseys 0-12, Monaleen 0-07
