Senior Team
Our Murtaghs bar sponsored senior team had a 2 point win over St Brigids on sunday last in the O Rourke cup. A late goal proved the winner for Kilmore. Well done to all players and management on the win. Our next game is against Strokestown in Kilmore in 2 weeks. Thanks to everyone who helped out in anyway on the day. The day was dampened by a serious injury to Dermot Foley but thankfully Dermot has recovered well and we wish him a speedy recovery. We thank everyone who helped out with looking after Dermot on Sunday and also thanks to the many people from St Bridgets and Kilmore who have made contact with the club since Sunday enquiring about Dermot. This Saturday evening at 8pm our Murtaghs bar sponsored senior team take part in the Kiernan cup final against the 2012 Longford county champions Killoe in Killoe. All support would be appreciated.

Our junior league game did not go ahead on Monday as Elphin did not field a team.
Sunday last was a special day for our 2012 U-14 panel as at half time they were presented with their county medals. Thanks to Karl Mannion and Frankie Dolan for presenting the medals.
