Cois Fharraige played the U13 county final last week against Padraig Pearses, and led at half-time by a creditable 2-4 to 1-4. Against the wind in the second half however, Pearses came back strongly and lead by 4 points as the game drew to a close. Two late goals from Pearses flattered them with a 4-9 to 2-5 victory. However Cois Fharraige gained promotion to B grade for next season - well done on a great year.
