Elphin LGFA

Our U8 & U10 girls play Eire Óg and St Mary’s of Tulsk in Eire Óg Wednesday evening at 7pm as part of the 2018 Summer Games.

It’s that time of year to organise our now annual trip to Croke Park for the ladies All Ireland finals. The finals take place on Sunday the 16th September.

We need numbers asap in order to book a bus and order tickets. The cost will hopefully be not more than €15 pp for bus AND match tickets.

The trip is available to our U12, U14, U16 teams and younger if accompanied by a parent. Please contact John Keane if you want to go. As usual trip depends on enough adults going.

Congratulations to Louise Leonard and Sarah Gunn who have been selected to join the Roscommon U12 panel for next Saturdays game in the Hyde Park. These U12 girls will play an U12 Meath team at half time in the Ladies All Ireland Intermediate Semi Final – Roscommon V Meath. What a fantastic opportunity for them to represent their county and I hope they enjoy every minute of it. Best of luck girls.

The used clothing collection is now finished. The club wish to thank everybody that took the time to gather and donate clothes to our collection. It is very much appreciated.
