It's County Final weekend for our Junior B football team as they take on Downings in the Michael Murphy Sports & Leisure Junior B Football Championship. The lads overcame Urris last Sunday in the semifinal and are looking forward to our second only Junior B final. The game is being played as part of a treble header in O'Donnell Park this Sunday which also sees the Junior A and Intermediate Finals being played. Throw in for our game is 12.30pm and we are asking for as much support on the day to cheer on the lads.

Also this Saturday the senior team have an away league match against Fanad Gaels. This game has a 5pm throw in. Again we ask for support for this important fixture.

Arena 7 hosted a successful fundraising event on behalf of underage football, camogie and hurling at the club.  Over 100 underage players enjoyed the hospitality of Enda and Claire at Arena 7.
