NYPD Successful Day

By Club



The NYPD under 10 football blitz certainly lived up to its high reputation on Saturday  the 25th of May at O’Mahonys, with eight teams participating and some very fine football on view.

St. Colmcilles won the much sought after John Joe McCabe Cup after a very entertaining game against Bailieboro Shamrocks, Cavan on a scoreline of 13 scores to 7. There was little between the sides who  served up some delightful football .Baileiboro  missed some scoring opportunities before St. Colmcilles pulled away in the closing stages to take the Cup.

Trim accounted for neighbours Dunderry  by 13 scores to 5 to take the Paddy O’ Brien Cup.

Moorefield, Kildare proved too strong for  hosts, Navan O Mahonys in their final. O’ Mahonys defeated  Bailieboro Shamrocks in an earlier game.

The Downs, Westmeath accounted for Ratoath in their final.


After the finals all the participating teams were presented  with their medals by  members of the NYPD committee and Navan Forum, Inspector Martin Smethers, Pat Gannon and Mary Ann Mc Cabe, while Paddy’s wife, Mairead, presented  the Paddy O’ Brien Cup.
