Bonniconlon was the venue for the first round of the football league against neighbours St. Farnan's on Sunday last. A wonderful day and good conditions made for a decent match which ended all square at 1-11 a piece.

Castleconnor started well and were 0-3 v 0-1 ahead after 7 minutes with scores from the boot of Eamon Cawley, Stephen Curley and Kevin McDonnell. Farnans hit a purple patch scoring 1-5 without reply to go ahead at the break 1-6 v 0-3.

A blistering start to the second period with a goal and 2 points from the hosts and a point for the visitors seen the gap reduced to just two points, 1-7 to 1-5 - the goal courtesy of Jason Earlis. Castleconnor took the lead of the narrowest of margins after 3 fine scores from Earlis, Kevin Langan sub Pat Naughton. It was nip and tuck from here on and the sides couldn't be separated finishing up a 1-11 v 1-11 draw.
