November 8, 2018

Congratulations to our Junior Football team, and Joint-Managers Martin Beirne and Martin Travers, on completing their Division Four League campaign with 10 wins from 10 games thanks to a 1-15 to 1-5 win over Ballinameen. Yet again this was a good team performance with some very well worked scores and excellent defending. Man of the Match Shane Beirne was well assisted by John Sweeney, Gerry Cregg, Dillon Beirne and Ronan Beirne. The Gavin Lee Memorial Cup was accepted by Team Captain Darren Lee. 

Congratulations to our Scór na nÓg Question Team team of Emmet Keane, Conor Gunn, Evan Gunn and Luke Gunn who had an excellent 20 point win over Boyle and two teams from St. Dominics. They have now qualified for the All-Ireland Final in Killarney. Well done to Solo Singer Sarah Keane and our Set Dancing Team also did the Club proud and were unlucky to miss out on honours.
