On what was a lovely warm evening, the club’s second team had its biggest turnout of the year with 25 players all looking for a game.
In a see saw encounter, the O’Mahony’s led by four points at half-time thanks to a goal shortly before the break by player manager David Dowling.
The visitors started with the first three points of the second half before a great Paddy Byrne goal put daylight between the teams again.
