Club Notes: 27-07-2023
There was great news for the U12 Ladies Footballers on Friday last, when they found out that they were chosen as one of the six U12 teams to play in Croke Park on Ladies All Ireland Football Finals day on Sunday 13th August. This was the culmination of weeks of hard work by everyone involved and our girls will now be able to grace the hallowed turf of Croke Park on the biggest day in the Ladies Football calendar.
The u13 girls travelled to Ballinspittle on Sunday to take on the home team, Courcey Rovers and came away with a great win.
The Junior A Footballers are back out this weekend as they begin their Junior A Football Championship campaign when they travel to Rosscarbery to take on Argideen Rangers in their opening group game. This game is on Saturday 29th with throw in at 7:30pm. We encourage all our supporters to come out and help the lads to victory.
