The Senior and Reserve footballers lost their games against Downings on Saturday past and are at home to Naomh Padraig Uisce Chaoin this Saturday evening. See Facebook for match details.

Pride of place this weekend goes to our U-14 hurlers who took part in Féile na nGael 2018 which was played in Connaught at the weekend. The lads were hosted by Tourlestrane GAA Club in County Sligo. This was a great weekend of hurling which saw the team play four games of hurling reaching the quarter finals where they unfortunately lost out to Claremorris. The lads were real ambassadors for the club and done us all proud. Thanks to Ray, Stephen, Roisin, Sharon, Angela and bus driver James and to all the traveling parents and supporters for making this a truly memorable weekend.
