Collooney lined out with father & son Stanley Harte Snr & Jnr but they could not stop a rampant Castleconnor side that are on top of the league table with two wins out of two. Castleconnor’s Mark Murphy gave a very solid performance in the 1st game alongside doubles partner Larry Jones. The Castleconnor men were never headed and dominated from start to finish. The duo helped Castleconnor into a 30 point advantage going into the last doubles. Even though Collooney’s Stanley Harte Jnr & Patrick Fox tried hard in their contest with Castleconnor’s Oisin Quinn & Joe Gorman. Castleconnor ran out deserving winners in the end.
