Parade: Thanks to all the boys who marched with us in the St Patrick's Day parade. You were so well behaved and a credit to your families.

Under-6 & Under-8: Training continues outdoors on Saturday mornings at 10am.

Under-10: Under-10 training is on Saturday mornings from 10.30am to 11.30am.

Under-12: Our Group D footballers had a great run out in the second round of the football league last Saturday, but lost out to a strong Ballina side.

Congratulations to Sinéad Meagher who is now through to the Girls Under-15 Singles All-Ireland Final having defeated Roscommon opposition last weekend. Well done Sinéad.
Hard luck to Eamonn Spillane and Gerry Foley (Ballinahinch) who were beaten by Gus Heraty and Joe Neary of Mayo in the Diamond Master B All-Ireland Semi-final in Kilcolman at the weekend.


Under-12: Our under-12 team are due to play a blitz this Saturday. Contact management for further details.

Féile na nGael: Our under-14 team defeated Éire Óg Annacarty to qualify for the semi-finals of the Féile na nGael competition. Well done ladies.

Under-14: We play Ballina in Ballina in the opening round of the under-14 championship on April 1st. All players should make a special effort to attend training between now and then.

Junior A: Our junior team crossed another milestone in our history on Sunday morning last when we played Burgess-Duharra in our first-ever league game at this level. Inspired by a Danni Harrington goal the team played outstanding hurling to defeat our neighbours by one point. This is a fantastic result and shows that all the hard work in training is paying off. It was especially pleasing to see Michelle O’Dwyer line out a mere eight weeks after giving birth to her second child. We are due to play Lorrha-Dorrha next on April 6th.

Tipperary: Congratulations to the Tipperary under-18 team which defeated Limerick in the Munster semi-final on a scoreline of 4-10 to 2-8. Both Alanna Morris and Rachel Maher featured in this game and we wish them all the very best in the Munster final. They are due to play Galway this weekend. Keep up the great work ladies. Best of luck also to the Tipperary under-16 team and the Nenagh players on the panel which faces Cork next weekend in the Munster final.

Fundraisers: On April 26th we are having a second hand clothes collection to raise funds. All old clothes will be gratefully received. Our annual Easter walk will take place on May 5th. Money raised from both events will go directly to the camogie club.

Volunteers: We are always looking for new people to get involved in the club and if you would like to contribute to the growth of camogie in terms of administration, coaching, playing or in any other way please email
