Our ABC / Nursery programme continues this Saturday, November 8th from 10:30am to 11:30am in the Elphin Community Sport Centre. There has been great interest so far and all children in the parish aged between 4 and 7 are invited to attend. The Club wishes to thank all the parents who have turned out in great numbers with their children for the last two weeks and all those who helped out with the coaching. 

The annual Gavin Lee Tournament was held in the Orchard Park on Bank Holiday Monday. In a close Cup Final we were defeated by Shannon Gaels and in the Shield Final Strokestown defeated Kilmore. Thank you to all the players that took part, all those who marked out the pitches and provided refreshments, the Order of Malta and the Referees; Charlie Candon and Peter Carney. A special word of thanks to the Lee family for their involvement. The tournament was a great success and continues to play an important part in the Club's calendar of activities.
