Hard luck to our U-10 community games team who were beaten in the All Ireland semi final in Kenagh. Our U-12 team drew both of their games this weekend against St Croans and Castlerea. Our U-14 team of Kilmore/Shannon Gaels are through to the Garda cup final. Our U-16 team won their final championship game against Eire Og and finish top of the table with 6 wins out of 7 games. On this Friday evening our U-12 team play their final group game of the championship against Kilglass in Kilmore at 6.30pm. The U-14 Garda cup final may be fixed for next Saturday in Boyle against Castlerea.  Our minor game against St Ciarans has also yet to be fixed. 

What a massive evening lies ahead this Friday for our Ladies junior team as they contest the County Junior B final against Four Roads in Kiltoom. The game takes place at 8.30pm and we would encourage as much support as possible to make the trip to Kiltoom. We wish the ladies team the very best of luck and look forward to welcoming them back to the parish as County champions. Our U-12 girls team also play at half time in the final.
