Congratulations to Conan Marren who represented the club when playing for Sligo U-14 hurlers at the weekend. The team won the All Ireland Shield in a blitz held in Newry, Co. Down.

The U-12 girls football team had two young stars in the past week. Leonie Gaughan, Castlerock NS, played superbly in midfield in Croke Park during the exhibition game at half time between Mayo and Tyrone. Leonie defended well and set up many scores,also contributing a point for Mayo. Off the football field, U-12 player, Claire Hegarty, donated €600 to the Lily Mae Trust Fund. Claire danced at the Tubbercurry Old Fair Day and also at the Siamsa Sraide to raise the funds. Everyone in the club is very proud of the two girls. 

Club Monthly Meeting tonight (Monday, the 2nd of September) at 9.30pm in the clubhouse.
