Leinster Club Championship
Rhode Senior footballer’s came to an end with a two point defeat to Longfords Mullinalaghta St.Columba’s on a score-line of 1-06 to 0-07. In a game that Rhode played very well and game could have went our way but Mullinalaghta pulled it down to their level which could have been dealt by the referee and his officials but on the day a sending off and a number of injuries before and during the game Rhode fought with great spirit and played well and every player stood up and was counted. While player’s and management maybe disappointed they can hold their head up high with the wonderful years they are after having winning 3 Senior titles in a row and 4 league titles . Take time to relax and then get back on the road to retain the Dowling for 2019. You have done the club proud.
