Simonstown Gaels 1-14 Skryne 0-11

Fairyhouse Steel Senior Football Championship. Group C – Round 1.

However a goal from Mark Gardiner thwarted their efforts and ultimately sealed their fate as Simonstown Gaels ran out winners by 1-14 to 0-11 in a game where Skryne were wasteful in front of goals accumulating 9 wides in comparison to 3 for Simonstown over the course of the game.
