We sent 18 players to Denver with 12 of the team playing their first game of Gaelic Football ever. Two good games were played. The Denver game could have gone either way but the Denver teams experience showed in the end. The Austin game was a different matter. A team full of experienced footballers basically played our rookies off the field.
Though not the greatest results for Setanta, everyone got games and had a great time.
