A couple of late scores conceded meant we lost out narrowly on a scoreline 4 –07 to 3-06. Well done to the U14’s footballers who have made great progress this season.
The U12 Footballers are drawn against Clerihan in the U12 Football County Quarter Finals. The date of the fixture has yet to be confirmed.
On this Sat 26 May in association with the County Bord Na Nóg we host the annual inter divisional Peadar Cummins U14 Hurling tournament. This tournament is dedicated to the memory of Peadar Cummins who spent many years coaching with the Juvenile Club. The club will be calling on committee members to drop sandwiches and refreshments down to the pavilion on Saturday morning for participating teams.

A reminder to all users of the portable goalposts, please take the goal posts apart and return them to the corner shed after each use. Otherwise they are a safety hazard and the likelihood is that they will be damaged if left lying around.
