Our Junior team were in action against Michael Glavey’s last Friday evening in the Junior Championship in Ballinlough. The team are out against Clan na Gael C in a Division 4 league clash this Wednesday 6th July at 8pm in Johnstown.

Results and Fixtures

The O’Gara Cup game which was fixed for last Sunday 3rd July was cancelled and conceded by Clan na Gael.

Our Under 12’s had a great day in Croke Park last Tuesday when they participated in a blitz at the HQ of Gaelic Games. This was a great experience for all our young players and indeed everyone who travelled on the day and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Under 12 training resumes this Wednesday evening and the Summer league commences this Saturday with an away game against Kilmore.
