Intermediates overcame refereeing adversity at Renmore on Monday May 1st to run out narrow winners over St.James by 1–12 to 1–10. In a hard and closely contested encounter, an early goal by Adrian Moran got Claregalway off to a good start but thereafter we were never more than a couple of points ahead. This win follows up on the second round win against Clifden at Claregalway after losing out earlier to Carna/Cashel. Future fixtures are: May 15th away to Oughterard; July 23rd at home to Salthill; September 17th at home to St. Michaels; October 1st away to Lettermore.
