Well done to the Elphin-Ballinameen U20s on topping their group and qualifying for the County Semi-Final by defeating Kilmore-Shannon Gaels on a scoreline of 1-9 to 0-5.

The U14’s season came to a close with defeat to Strokestown in the Garda Cup on Saturday. Despite missing a large number of players they put in a big effort. Thank you to the players, the management team of John Willie Conroy and John Kelly and all who assisted throughout the year.
