The Under 10s completed their year on Saturday at the annual Kilglass Gaels tournament and just lost out to neighbours Shannon Gaels. All our players performed great, always helping each other and never giving up and it bodes well for the future. Thank you to Kilglass Gaels for the invitation and hospitality and thank you to John Keane, Michael Maye and Shane Neary for coaching the group this year. 

The Club is hosting an ABC / Nursery programme for all children in the parish aged between 4 and 7 at the Elphin Community Sport Centre this Saturday, October 25th from 10:30am to 11:30am. The programme will continue for the following five Saturdays and parents are requested to attend the initial session. All children that go to School in the parish were recently presented with a Nursery Programme Jersey and information pack by the Club in order to introduce them to Gaelic Games and to promote Elphin GAA Club. Thank you to all involved in making this possible.
