A chairde,

Commiserations to the U21 footballers who lost out to Mountbellew Moylough in the county final last weekend by a single point. The game was fixed very quickly on Wednesday evening and played at the Connacht Centre of Excellence in Bekan Ballyhaunis on Saturday. Final score was 1-6 to 1-5.

 A huge thank you to all our coaches who attended the 4 coaching workshops last week. Nearly 80 coaches attended over the 4 evening so we hope everybody found it beneficial before the season kicks off.
