The travelling band of supporters were on high expectations for the Tubbercurry Boys to bring the Championship home. Prior to this last fixture, they were one point behind Gurteen Celtic who were League leaders on twenty-two points with all games played. Real Tubber had to win to be clear leaders a draw would goal difference decide the title and Gurteen Celtic had a three-goal advantage so no pressure on Benbulben but a heavy load on Real Tubber.

But Boyle had the rub of the green in that day as Aughanagh Celtic had them under massive pressure and should have scored from the penalty spot but Liam O Connell could only manage to put the ball over the bar. This time the clash of Boyle Celtic and Aughanagh Celtic was crucial to the visitors Aughanagh, as a win would give them Super League status for next season anything less and the dreaded relegation trap door was waiting. Boyle Celtic guaranteed runners up in Spot in the league were red hot favourites to take all three points but as so often this season they once again fell at the final hurdle. This despite a fine goal from Niall O Donohue but take nothing from a battling Aughanagh Celtic and the Hit Man Paul Mc Tiernan he scored once from play and once rom the penalty spot and for good measure Dermot Beggan added a third this was a sweet victory for Aughanagh Celtic who stood up and were counted when called upon.In the North-West Hospice Shield Semi Final MCR journeyed to Cliffoney Celtic at stake a spot in the Shield final and awaiting the winners were Real Tubber.

Stephen Hallahan who has had a brilliant season for MCR took on the responsibility and hammered home what was to prove to be the only goal of the game. This was a great result for MCR and yet another final for them but great credit to Cliffoney Celtic who came so close on a few fronts this season and can with a small few changes be a major force again next season.In the North-West Hospice Cup Semi Final, newly crowned Super League Champions Carbury journeyed to the Bee Park Manorhamilton to take on Leitrim kingpins Manor Rangers at stake a place in the Cup Final on Saturday the 10th June in the Showgrounds Sligo against the Boys from Ballisodare.
