A fine second half performance was enough to get the lads over the line. Progression to semi-final is now guaranteed with one game to spare. Please see our facebook page for match report.


The U-14 lads are into the B Championship final after overcoming a gallant Eastern Harps at Connolly Park on a scoreline of 5-13 to 5-6.. The game was close throughout with Harps coming back at us on numerous occasions but a late scoring burst seen us over the line. Well done boys!!
