As climax to a very successful James O'Brian day the 'Dad's game' was no disappointment to all those who turned up, either to watch an entertaining game or ogle 25 fit men. After a rigorous selection process the two teams lined up under the control of the eagle eyed Jerome O'Shea


From the start the A squad,captained by youthful vice chairman Hugh Lennon, took advantage of superior play to clock up some early points
whie opposing captain, Mort Reidy was prone to spitting his dummy and finding fault with many aspects of the game


Chris Byrns of the B squad, had no joy containing Paul Caulfield who rolled back the years and left his hurley to one side to score an impressive 1-3 on the day
The second half started with the unfortunate injury of Donal Coughlan of the A squad. His absence in midfield weakened the team considerably for the robust Barry Brady to take advantage and score a stylish 1-5.
Two turning points in the second half evolved around the keepers where a superb dive from Pat McManamon failed to prevent a goal while a point blank save from second half A squad keeper Eddie Connolly denied Chris Byrnes


With Channa Madanayake struggling with the principles of the Gaelic game and Ambrose Scullion struggling with thigh strain, the A squad held on to achieve a very commendable draw
Excellent running and performances from Declan Ryan,Tony Griffn,Liam Tierney,Mick Buckley,Bobby Kavanagh and all others who took part.
