October 08, 2017

It was mixed fortunes for the Adult Hurling Teams at the weekend. The AHL4 team were beaten by Ballyboden St Endas on Saturday. The AHL9 team made the short journey to Cloghran and drew with Whitehall Colmcilles.

Congratulations to the Under 15s boys who had a great win against Noamh Fionnbarra in the Hurling Championship semi-final today. They play Ballyboden St Endas in the final in two weeks time.

The Under 13 & Under 15 Camogie teams are playing in the Championship finals on Sunday 15th October. The Under 13s are at home to Whitehall Colmcilles and the Under 15s are away to Naomh Fionnbarra. All support welcome and appreciated.

Well done to the Under 7s/2010 Boys & Girls teams who jointly hosted their 1st blitz as separate teams versus Erins Isle on Saturday. The skill levels on display from both sets of players were very impressive and the underage structures in the Club are very positive. The Under 7 girls train on Thursday evenings at 6pm in the Community Centre hall and Saturday mornings at 11:30am at River Valley pitches while the Under 7 boys train on Thursday evenings at 7pm in the Community Centre hall and Saturday mornings at 10:30am at River Valley pitches. All boys & girls born in 2010 are welcome to join.
