Athletic in ‘Seventh Heaven’


Mullingar Athletic’s divisional cup game against Wicklow Rovers came to an abrupt end last Friday night in Gainstown. The visitors were leading 2-0 when the referee Declan Toland called a halt to proceedings due to a floodlight failure.

Mullingar Athletic manager David Maher had rested a number of players for this cup tie but Athletic still had a strong team out. However, Wicklow took the lead on 30 minutes when Maurice Dunne scored direct from a free-kick.
