On a warm and sunny evening, the Parnells Senior team lined out against Harlesden Harps in the Senior League. A mixture of youth and experience yet again produced a winning result. The game got off to a blistering start with a goal on the first minute by forward Matt McHugh but the team did not capitalise on their great start and ended the first half poorly, 6 points down 1 – 06 to 2 – 09. The half time talk fired up the players producing much better passing and shooting outscoring Harlesden Harps by 3- 08 to 1 – 02. Thereby producing a win with the final score being 4 – 14 to 3 – 11. A good result with a young team against a good side.

Fortune did not favour the Reserve team when they played NLS on Sunday 4th June. Many of the team had featured in an earlier game and a mixture of injury and availability of players definitely were influencing factors in the outcome of this game against a very accomplished NLS side. Final Score-Parnells 2 – 07 NLS 5 – 17.
However the result earlier in the week was merely a blip and when Parnells faced Tara on Thursday 8th June, this game took on a different intensity and the players were really up for it. By half time, the scores were mounting up Parnells 2 – 06 to Tara 0 – 01. The second half of the game saw no let up and the goals were being shared amongst 4 players. Final score Parnells 7 – 16 to Tara 2 – 03
The team and scores were as follows: Frazer Beckles, Alan Callanan, Enda Fallon, Denis Toomey, Ciaran O’Donaghue, Brian Foody (0-1), Jason Maguire, Ryan Forde (0-3), Jack Woolfe (2-2), Calum Diggins, Finatn McKeon, Connor Spinks (2-3), JP Roche (2-5), Jamie Murphy (1-1), Bernard O’Reilly.
