Donaghmore Ashbourne traveled to Walterstown on Saturday 9th March 2019 to play this Division 3 B League fixture against a good Walterstown 2nd team.

A one point loss 0.13 to 1.09 put pressure on the squad to perform better and in the fourth round they produced a fine display against a gritty Dunshaughlin team to win 1.15 to 1.09. A semi-final against the impressive Summerhill who had already beaten St. 3 wins and a draw in the first four games allowed Gabriel Bannigans new management team see a lot of players in good competitive games but a 1 goal loss to eventual league winners Skryne in their fifth game made a nervy prelude to the Championship. Despite all the signs of it being a rip roaring derby, both teams were cautious and played the percentage game, both teams wary of each others strengths and capabilities. These games led to the third round of the championship where Dunboyne lay in wait. The second half didnt start so good with Summerhill scoring the first of 3 goals to consolidate their position and from them on it was a game of catch up where Summerhill only had to maintain their lead to finish as winners. The end result was a nervy 1.09 to 1.08 win for the lads who controlled the game better. Senior FootballThe seniors commenced the league in early February but due to the inclimate weather in March it was to be a stop start campaign. The lads started well in the semi final but without good ball into the forwards they began to concede ground to an impressive Summerhill team who led 6 points to 3 at half time. The last round saw a draw match against the holders Simonstown to determine placing in the group. A quarter final beckoned versus neighbours Ratoath. Colmcilles was the reward. Momentum was the key and over the next 8 league games in May, June and July they recorded 5 wins and 3 losses. The Championship first round one point win versus Seneschalstown, 1.12 to 1.11 in early April gave them the start they needed and they took that momentum to the second round versus Blackhall Gaels, shooting 1.16 and conceding 11 points. The scoreline of 3.12 to 2.06 didnt do the lads justice and they would rightly feel they let the game slip away.
