Our minors played in the A championship last Friday evening away to Claregalway.  Unfortunately, we came up short however, our girls gave a great spirited performance with them not giving up and a great fight right to the end, this now finds them in the shield competition where we wait to find out our opponents. 

Well done also to our U8 and U10 girls who travelled to Glenamaddy for a blitz last week.  Thanks to the hosts and all involved the girls enjoyed it despite the weather! 

Best of luck also to U16 girls and David, Eugene and Kelly who also find themselves in a shield final this weekend.  Watch facebook for details. 

Good luck to Sarah, Lauren and all the Galway senior girls who play Dublin this weekend in the All-Ireland Semi-Final, this promises to be a cracking game with already having had two close games in the league this season. Good luck to all involved!
