The final scoreline was Rock 0-12 Eskra 0-12. Rock scorers: Liam Nugent 0-8 Shane Murphy 0-2 Paudie Ward 0-1 Diarmaid Carroll 0-1. The Reserves were very impressive defeating Eskra on a final scoreline of Rock 0-18 Eskra 0-10. Many thanks to Leah Quinn who sang Amhrán na bhFiann so brilliantly prior to the game, well done Leah.
