Seniors Trip to Dingle
Ours Seniors had a successful trip to the Dingle Peninsula last weekend,taking part in the 30th Comórtas Peile Páidí Ó Sé tournament, they entered the first round against Ballydesmond of Cork who featured former All Star Donnacha O’Connor at centre forward, coming from behind, down 4 points to 2 at half time, a better scond half saw Port run out 2-12 to 0-9 winners with Darragh Galvin scoring an impressive 2-02.
They met local team An Gaeltacht in the semi-final, in a game played in less than ideal conditions, Port prevailed on a score of 2-5 to 1-4. This meant we advanced to the final against last years Kerry County finalists Dingle – much to delight of our adopted Dingle native Pat Galvin.
The final was played again in very high winds in Gallarus possibly the most western GAA pitch in the country. The local lads adapted to the windy conditions, slowing up play in the first period when Port had the wind, limiting Port to just 3 first half points while tagging on two themselves, with the wind at their backs for the second period Dingle pulled away to leave the final score at 0-8 to 0-3.
A brilliant weekend was had by all who traveled, and a huge thanks to all supporters who traveled and those who raised funds to make the trip possible. A big thanks also to the Páidí Ó Sé Tournament Organisers for a brilliant weekend.
