It is unique for our Club to reach two League finals and to play both of them within two days of each other only adds to the occasion. We ask all our supporters to attend both games give the players all the encouragement they can.
Next Friday at home we entertain Kilcormac/ Killoughey in the Junior A championship and on Saturday at 5 pm we clash with Gracefield in the Senior Football Championship in Mucklagh. Best of luck to all involved in all those games.
