Leinster League. Monageer/Boolavogue 0-9 Avondale 0-12.
We then embarked on the long trek to Rathdrum to face Wicklow senior hurling outfit Avondale in the opening round of the Leinster League at 4.00 pm and despite the addition of some fresh players, we went down to a 3 point defeat after a dour encounter, dominated by defences. Played in wet conditions on a very heavy pitch, and with 10 of the starting team having played earlier in the day in Rosslare, it was a big ask, against a rugged home side.
