Our U8's had a fantastic afternoon at the Margaret Donnelly tournament in Sherry's field on Saturday past, well done to everyone involved.

Training continues this Saturday from 11am-12pm.  



Our U12's took part in the Peggy Harney tournament on Saturday past , also in Sherry's field. Having been crowned winners in the previous two years this was an eagerly awaited tournament. Unfortunately, our girls were too slow to start and lost out in their first 3 games against Madden, Edendork and St Brigid's. However, they upped their game for their remaining fixtures, drawing with An Port Mor and beating both the current Div 1 champions Granemore and Derrynoose. Congratulations to Mdden who won the tournament and many thanks to St Brigid's and the Harney family for a well organised day's camogie and great refreshments for everyone.
