Club Notes 3rd May 2009

November 8, 2018

 As part of the 125th Anniversary of the GAA next Sunday 10th May has been designated as a day for all clubs to celebrate the event. Elphin will be commemorating the Anniversary with a mass in Orchard Park at 1.30pm, for past and present club members, followed by various underage events. Everyone in the community is invited to attend.


  Our seniors had a hard fought victory last Sunday in their first home game of 2009. Elphin played the best in the first half and after a well worked move, John Collins finished to the back of the net to give Elphin a 4 point cushion going in at half time, Elphin came out the quicker and despite enjoying the lion’s share of possession found it hard putting points on the board. Aidans dug in and left only a 1 point margin going into the last minute Elphin managed to break up field and scored last to take maximum point.
