Although the MDL Oscar Traynor team was beaten in its first outing in this year’s tournament by the Athletic Union League (AUL) in Dublin, Celtic’s two representatives on the team Paul Campbell (pictured below) & Colm Harte can both look back with a great deal of satisfaction having performed very impressively against the tournament favourites.

The MDL started very slowly & fell 0-3 behind quite early in the game but a fine second half display to which Campbell & Harte contributed handsomely saw them make a entertaining contest of the game but unfortunately not enough to turn the result around. Colm Harte (pictured below) went close to scoring during this period.

Next up for the MDL is the Leinster Senior League after which they take on the Amateur League, holders of the Oscar Traynor trophy. Games resume early in the New Year.
