Games Update

Well done to all the under 7 hurling team on winning their home game against Sarsfields on Sunday. They really played their hearts out and never gave up. There were some lovely plays during the match and their skill levels are improving. The most important thing is that all the kids had fun. Next game for the U-7 hurlers is away to Round Towers on Sunday 28 May at 10am.
Next up this week are the U-14 team who play a home League game V. Castledermot this Tues 16th May at 7pm.
Congratulations to our U-16 lads who won their league semi-final against Abbey Rangers at home last Monday. It was a very good performance on a lovely night for football. They are now through to the final, which is set for Friday 19th of May in Hawkfield. Thanks also to all who turned out to support last night. The U-16′s play their Divisional Final on Friday 19th of May in Hawkfield. Good Luck to all and please come out and support the teams.
