St Finians were represented in the Loreto College Team by 12 players from our U15 and minor teams.  They put up a fantastic effort against a very strong Cois Life Team in the Senior B  Camogie Shield Final in Peregrines on Friday 18th. Well done girls, you never gave up the fight but unfortunately it wasn't to be on the day.

Gormanston Indoor Hurling Tournament is starting this Sunday the 20th January.  We would like to wish our U8's and U9's teams taking part this year, all the best of luck.  Click on the link to see some pictures of the U9 and U8 boys in action at Gormanston Hurling Tournament 2019.  PHOTO ALBUM

GAA NATIONAL CLUB DRAW 2019 is now an annual event following its success over the past 5 years, in which over €6million has been raised by Clubs. The sole purpose of the draw is to assist Clubs to raise much needed funds to aid in the development and promotion of our games. This is an excellent opportunity for our club to raise up to €20,000. This year, all monies raised by the juvenile teams will be staying with that particular team and used for equipment for that individual team! All prizes provided by Ard Chomhairle.  Tickets available from the Club house or all Team Managers / Coaches.
