An Spidéal put up a very brave effort but were defeated by a single point after extra time to Kiltimagh in Charlestown last Sunday in the Connacht Junior football final.
Despite the best efforts of Lorcan Ó Callaráin, who was selected as man of the match, and younger brother Brendáin, who shot 0-5, they went out to a very late point by Adrian Forkan.
While disappointed with the result, An Spidéal can hold their heads up high as they put up a valiant effort and achieved their primary objective of promotion to the intermediate ranks in Galway football for 2010.
