We have three county finals to look forward to this week. First up – our minor girls footballers who play Calry/St Joseph’s this Wednesday evening in Scarden in the ‘A’ shield championship final at 6:30pm. The players and management would appreciate big club support for this game.

Then on Saturday, our under 14 girls play CT Gaels in the under 14 A’ championship final in Kent Park at 5pm. The under 14s have had a terrific championship run to reach the decider and come up against the team who narrowly beat them in the league final earlier this year. Best of luck to manager Tom O’Boyle and the players.  

The following day – Sunday – Benbulben Gaels hurlers play their county final against Naomh Eoin. Venue and time had still to be confirmed at the time of writing.

The boys are involved in two county semi-finals. The under 16s play St Mary’s in the ‘A’ championship semi-final this Monday evening in Kent Park AT 6:15PM.

The boys under 14 footballers play Eastern Harps in Keash on Friday evening in the county ‘A’ semi-final at 6:30pm.

Our senior men’s footballers take on county champions Tourlestrane this Saturday evening in the Belfry senior football championship quarter-final. The game is in Scarden at 6pm.

The club was delighted to hear that clubman Kevin Davey is back home after being hospitalised in Dublin recently. Everyone connected with DRP wishes him a continued and speedy recovery. No doubt, he’ll have a DRP flag fluttering from the Davey household this weekend for the seniors.

Our boys minor footballers, under the guidance of Des Henry and Paul Logan, are through to the county ‘B’ championship semi-final following last week’s 4-9 to 2-9 win against Tourlestrane.

Our under 12 footballers put in a fine display in their Division 1 final replay last week, before losing out narrowly to St John’s.

The Under 9 and Under 11 urban leagues continue this Wednesday 18th when we play St Mary’s and Ballymote in Scarden at 6:30pm. All players are asked to assemble by 6:15pm.

Benbulben Gaels under 16 hurlers were narrowly beaten by Western Gaels last week in the Championship. They face Tourlestrane in Oxfield next Monday evening.

The Sligo’s u15 hurlers won the Hibernia Cup Peter O’Keefe Shield at the centre of excellence last weekend, beating Fermanagh in the semi-final and Donegal in the final. There were several Benbulben Gaels players on the team - Eoin Kerrigan, Thomas Davis, Paul O'Brien, Mathew Percy, Donnacha O'Brien and Daniel Tiernan - Also last Saturday, the Sligo’s u13 Development hurlers won the Connacht Plate at the  centre of excellence in Bekan, with Patrick Donlon and Shane McDonagh playing their part on the team.
