Graignamanagh 1-10  Mt. Leinster Rangers  1-18
Graignamanagh welcomed Mt. Leinster Rangers All Ireland Intermediate Club Champions with a Guard of Honour @ Harristown in the first round of the All County League on Sunday March 25th.  Playing for the first time in this League Graignamanagh lost out after a very competitive game to the Carlow Senior Champions & Intermediate Club Champions.  This was Graig's first competitive game since being relegated from the Intermediate grade but they rose to the occasion and matched their highly vaunted opponents during a very evenly contested first half.  The Rangers led at the break by 11 points to 1-06. The second half play was just as intense but for some wayward shooting the Graig men could have finished much closer to the All Ireland Champs. Both teams and mentors enjoyed refreshments in the Clubhouse after the Game.
