Congratulations to Michael Rock, who became Connacht GAA President at the Connacht Convention last Thursday. He follows Dr. Mick Loftus and Dr. Donal Keenan as being third Connacht GAA President to have attended School in Elphin, which is surely a unique feat, and we wish him well for his three year term. 

The Seniors had a good work out against Kilbride on Saturday evening in Kilbride. Thank you to our hosts for their hospitality after the game.
