Half Time score Aghada0-5 Clonakilty 3-10.

The second half was a better display from us with a few changes to personal we seemed to match them in key areas. John looney got our goal and one more point .Shane Bennett and Matthew Leahy got a point each. The final score line reflects how we did in second half.We held clonakilty to five points.
