On Saturday afternoon Shannon, who had made the long trip from Limerick, played Malone in an AIL1B fixture at Gibson Park. I covered the first half of this game.

Playing with a strong, cold wind, Malone quickly established themselves in Shannon’s ‘22’ and scored, wide on the right, through Stewart McKendrick, converted by Callum Smith, to take a 7-0 lead.
