AUL Premier C
An early strike from Luey Garro ensured Donnycarney promotion to AUL Premier B.
Garro’s tenth minute strike was enough to see the AUL side to secure victory over fellow promotion hopefuls Kippure and a place in the AUL second tier next term.
Kippure were reduced to 9 men in the last 10 minutes, but the clash was tight regardless and only a single goal separated the sides come full time.
The result see’s Donnycarney join Kilmore Celtic on 25 points and in the Premier B and the focus now turns to going up as champions.
It’s a massive achievement for a club that was in serious trouble just two seasons ago. After nigh on disbanding and leaving Premier A they needed a number of players to compete in Division 3 Sunday to ensure the club didn’t fold.
Now having re entered the Premier ranks just this season they have secured promotion at the first time of asking.
