Junior Football

On Thursday Rosemount travelled to Delvin for a Division 6 league encounter and on Sunday Delvin travelled down to Finea for the quarter final of the Junior cup.

Unfortunately Delvin fell to disappointing defeats in both encounters.

Much work to be done before our next championship outing.
