Senior Championship

Edenderry 1-08
Tullamore  1-08

Edenderry and Tullamore shared the spoils in round 4 of the senior football championship. It was a disappointing encounter played before a poor attendance at O'Connor Park. Edenderry started well and had a goal from Aaron McDonnell after three minutes from a good Sean Moriarty pass. The lead was extended with two Sean Doyle points before Tullamore got a point from a free before further points from Doyle and Brady left us six ahead. Edenderry gave away possession and were punished by a Tullamore goal. At half time Edenderry were ahead 1-06 to 1-03. Tullamore registered the first four points of the second half to take the lead and it was substitute Cian Farrell who got the Reds' first point of the second half after 24 minutes to leave the sides level. Sean Doyle pointed a free after good work by David Hanlon who was very good throughout and than a chance was wasted when Sean Moriarty dropped the ball short and Tullamore scored the leveller in the first minute of added on time.
