Best of Luck to Cavan U-21’s in the All-Ireland Final this weekend and in particular good luck to Barry Reilly, Colm Smith, Shane Gray & Barry Tully who are all on the Panel and not forgetting Joe McCarthy who is a selector. Hopefully a big crowd from Kingscourt will join the huge Cavan crowd expected. The Club is running a bus for €10 per person and it will leave at 11am on Sunday morning. To book a seat, just put your name down with Pat Faulkner.


The Seniors lost their first home match in over 2½ years when a late Killeshandra rally saw the visitors gain a deserved 1-14 to 2-10 victor on Easter Sunday. The lads will be looking to bounce back quickly though and their next scheduled match  is away to Killygarry on Sunday 8th @ 3.30pm.  That Senior match will be preceded with the Juniors playing at 2pm, who had no game this weekend but before that they face a trip to Gowna on Friday night (29th) to play a re-arranged match at 7.15pm.


The Minors will play the winner of Bailieboro and St. Joseph’s (playing Thursday evening) in the league semi  final on Monday 2nd May. Time & Venue to be confirmed, please check out the website over the weekend. The previously arranged final league match v Ramor has been conceded.


The 16s road trips started last week with a 4-8 to 0-12 defeat away to Laragh Utd.  They head to Templeport tonight (26th) before a trip to Redbridge next week.  The 14s are at home to Ramor Utd on Thursday (28th) but the 12s have a little break until the 9th May when they host Cuchullainns.
