Intermediate Hurling: The North Intermediate Semi- Final is scheduled for next weekend. Our Junior B hurling team made their exit from the championship after they were comprehensively defeated by a strong Roscrea team in Dolla on Saturday evening. The club would like to take this opportunity to thank selectors, Shane Ryan and Martin McKeogh for their efforts in preparing this team all year.

Camp 4 Champs: Shane McGrath’s Camp 4 Champs which was held in the club last week proved to be a great success. It was attended by over 100 children and was a perfect mix of sport, games and fun. They all gave Shane – along with county colleague John O’Keeffe – a great send-off on the last day as they finalised preparations for the All Ireland Semi-final. Thanks to Shane and team for all the fun.
