On the Field
Hard luck to the senior footballers who were beaten by St. James in the John Dunne Cup on Saturday. The lads were hugely depleted with many players away last week.
Hard luck to the Junior Footballers who missed out on a league final place after an agonising one point loss to Fr. Griffins Éire Óg on Friday. The lads were victim to some extremely cynical fouling in the last 10 mins with players taken down while through on goal. However it’s been a fairly successful league campaign all in all with 6 games, 4 wins, 2 one point defeats and over 40 players used. Next up is championship in August.
The minor footballers are building up towards championship in August. They played out a highly competitive challenge vs Clane of County Kildare on Saturday afternoon in the Prairie.
U15: Won well against Barna yesterday evening, playing Claregalway this Friday at 8pm in Prairie. Away to St James on Tuesday 24th July.
U14a: played Bearna in Championship last evening.
u13: Our game with Clifden this week has been postponed as they cannot play. Just training this week.
U10: will continue training during the summer. We will have matches in the next couple of weeks.
