                           The Brian Dillons Junior (A) Footballers, winners of the McSwiney Cup in 2013, had little difficulty in advancing to the next round of this years competition, when they recorded an easy, 5-12 to 0-6, victory over St.Nicks, at a wet,blustery and extremely foggy Pairc Diolunaigh on Wednesday evening, 29th October, 2014. Visibility was extremely difficult, due to the fog that enveloped Pairc Diolunaigh, and ,at times ,during the game, it would have been no surprise if the referee called a halt to the proceedings.
