The footballers made their way into the Mullarkey Cup semi-finals by beating Dulwich Harps on Saturday afternoon in Goodmayes. A fantastic solo effort goal by Tom Clarke topped off a fine performance by the Mayo man in the middle of the park. McCurtains made the most of the second half wind as the forwards picked off some long range scores including one each from Mark McGirr and Gerry Flynn to seal the win at the end.
