We have just launched our new Club Website over the weekend. It has many new features with up to the minute fixtures and results, club news and a club photo gallery. We are now looking for anyone wishing to contribute 
photos or news or to give us your feedback to email or on our facebook page.

Best of luck to the St Attractas's Girls Senior Schools Team who play in the All-Ireland Semi Final in Nenagh this Saturday. This is their first time to contest an All-Ireland Semi Final in the A level. WE are well represented on the team with Katie Walsh, Claire Colleran, Jenny Lundy, Edel Meers, Grainne Carty, Caitlin Egan.

This week sees many of the club teams returning to action first up were our Senior Hurlers started the season in great style with a home win over Tubbercurry in the Dermot Molloy League scoring an impressive 4-16. Training continues every Wednesday and Friday nights at 8.30 on the pitch and new players are always welcome.

The U16 Hurlers start their season with training on Wednesday nights at 7.30. This will be the evening for all hurling training in the field.

The U12 girls are in Banada Hall on Thursday evenings at 6 while the U14 and U16 Girls are out on the pitch now every Monday at 6pm.

U8/U10 Footballers coaching has moved outdoors now and they train every Saturday morning at 10.30 in the main pitch.

Our  U16 Footballers travel to Ballisodare on Sunday morning the 28th in the fourth round of the league after their win  in the last round over Bunninadden/Ballymote.

Our Senior Footballers qualified for the Kiernan Cup Final with a good win over our neighbours Curry in Tourlestrane on Saturday night. The win means we qualify to meet Eastern Harps in the final in 3 weeks time. They travel to Grange on this weekend to play St. Molaise Gaels in the second round of the league.

Our U14s make the same journey this Friday night in their first game of the season, this game may be moved so please check the website for the updated fixture.

We held a very successful teenage Alcohol disco on Friday night last, thanks to all our volunteers who help out including our newest recruits John T Durkin and Gerry Gavighan.
Bingo continues on Tuesday nights with the Jackpot and ever popular snowball game attracting plenty of interest. We are looking for 2 more volunteers to help out with Bingo and join in the teams who are on for two weeks and then off for four. Full training is provided! So contact David McVeigh or Michael Collins.

We extend best wishes to our Ladies Senior  Footballer Laura Hegarty and her husband Aidan Higgins on the birth of their baby daughter Mischa last week.
