Our U16 footballers continued their fine form in the Championship when they defeated Coolaney Mullinabreena last week their next game a very tough challenge against St John's.

Some of these lads make up the panel for our minors who hope to continue their great run in the round robin stage of the Championship against St Molaise Gaels in Grange on Thursday night.

In a busy week for these lads the u16 Hurling league Final is fixed for this Saturday when we host NAomh Eoin at 6pm. Best of luck to the lads as they finish a hectic week.

The Senior footballers were in action against Tubbercurry in Curry at the weekend, we were badly hit by injuries and it showed in our first half display when a well organised Tubber team made the use of the wind to open up a 4 point lead. But our lads came out with great determination and took the lead with 8 minutes left but Tubbercurry engineered two points too regain the lead an we managed to work our way to goal to get the levelling score in injury time. We know we will have to improve to secure a win in our last game against the table toppers St Mary's on Saturday night to ensure we progress to the knock-out stage of the championship.Thanks to our great supporter's who once again turned out in great numbers in the impressive Curry facilities.

Our senior ladies got their championship off with a very difficult away trip to Geevagh on Sunday last but the home advantage paid off for our hosts. We now play St Nathy's in the next round of the league stage this Sunday.

Also this Weekend sees the Start of the Martin Brennan Memorial Cup when our Hurlers begin their quest to win this trophy in its inagural year. The championship cup is in Memory of our club stalwart Martin Brennan who was so involved in the day to day running of the club. It is fitting that a championship cup should be dedicated to Martins Memory, Ar dheis De go raibh sé.
