Last Saturday seen the start of the All County League, where Galbally hosted neighbours Rock. Goals from Mickey and Declan Murphy proved to be decisive scores for Galbally. Rock led 0-5 to 0-1 at one stage in the first half but points from Colin Campbell and Damian McCrory and Mickeys goal seen Galbally go in at half time just one point down. A black card in the second half for Mc Creesh was big blow for Rock. Galbally took advantage with points from Sean and Declan Murphy and a late goal meant Galbally emerged victorious on a score line of 2-9 to 0-8. The Reserves having lead for the majority of the match they just fell short in the end as the match ended up a draw.
