The Junior Footballers came up short in their county semi final against Young Irelands last Monday, March 19th. The game turned on the harsh sending off of fullback Joe Ryan after 40 minutes for a second bookable offence. Tullogher led at half time 1-6 to 1-4, the scoreline not doing justice to Tullogher’s dominance. The goal was scored by Edmund Cullinane after a good passing movement. Young Irelands were more clinical in front of goal on the resumption. A late Brian Aylward penalty was not enough for Tullogher to claw back the deficit, eventually losing on a score line of 1-13 to 2-08.
