Fureys Coaches Senior League

Division 1 Relegation play-off

Sligo GAA Centre of Excellence,

Sunday 12 September

Referee: Bill Carty (Cloonacool).


Calry/St. Joseph's 0.18; Eastern Harps  3.06

Calry/St. Joseph's will continue to play  Div 1 league football in 2022 as a result of a three point victory over Eastern Harps in this Div 1 relegation final played at Sligo's Centre Of Excellence Scarden on Sunday last (Sept 12th)

That this was their only win in League football this year won't trouble manager the north division side but Eastern Harps can have no complaints in the manner of their loss last weekend.

The winners’ eighteen scores compared to their opponents nine is probably a true reflection of the dominance of possession from start to finish from the Hazelwood side. However, the winners could never shake off  Harps as they scored a hat trick of goals to keep the tie interesting right up to the death.

For Calry/St.Joseph's it was the old heads of Conor Griffin, Damien O Boyle and the Cummins brothers who led the fight that maintained their senior status for at least another year.

It was the opposite for Eastern Harps as it was their trio of eighteen-year-olds Dillon Walsh, Matt Henry and Caelan Hunt who offered the most resistance and between them scored 3.04 out of the total score of 3.06.
