Bord Gáis Energy GAA Hurling All-Ireland U21 B Final
Tomorrow, Roscommon GAA will be represented in our third All-Ireland Final of the year as the Under 21 Hurlers take on Kildare in the Bord Gáis Energy GAA Hurling All-Ireland U21 B Final at Semple Stadium. The game has a throw-in time of 5pm and forms part of an attractive double-header with the "A" Final between Kilkenny and Clare, which throws in at 7pm.
We wish the players and management the best of luck and would encourage as many supporters as possible to make the trip to Tipp. For those who cannot make the journey the game will be live on TG4 and we'll have updates on twitter.com/gaaroscommon

A thank you message from Coiste Iomana
Coiste Iomana would like to express it’s appreciation to everyone who helped in any way in the preparation for the All-Ireland Minor B Hurling Final last Saturday. Roscommon played a very good, strong Kerry team on the day and it wasn't their day.
We would like to thank all the players and management - Mike Kilcline, Peter Tiernan, Padraig Dooley, Andy Hession, Stephen Lohan, Trainer Ollie Canning and others who helped out and were involved during the year.
We would also like to thank the many supporters who made the trip to Limerick on Saturday to support the team and finally, we'd like to thank Casey’s Centra and Topaz for their sponsorship of the Minor Hurling team, which in difficult economic times, is very much appreciated.
