Last Sunday, the Sinead Beirne tournament was held. This was the 14th year of the tournament and the Camogie club thank the Beirne family for their generous patronage. The winning team was captained by Katie Lohan and also included Lily Murray, Iona Hanley, Katie O’Connor, Eve Connaughton, Michelle Rogers, Hope Sherwin, Sarah Kilcline and Jessica Dolan. A great afternoon of camogie was had by all between the rain showers. This finishes up the season for the U8s, U10s and U12s.
The club would like to thank all the girls for their huge effort over the year and also to the parents for helping out and bringing the girls to training and matches. The numbers playing Camogie in the club have increased again this year and the club would like to place on record our thanks for all those that helped with training during the year. Keep practising over the winter and we will see you all again next year.

Sincere thanks to all our trainers and mentors for their dedication and commitment during the year and for making training a positive and fun experience for all. Thanks to all the parents, grandparents, family and friends who as always are on hand to help out. Our games would not flourish without your support, long may it continue. Most importantly thanks to all the little ladies, and not so little, for taking part in ladies football, we look forward to seeing you all next season. Date for your diary folks!
