OOLA GATHERING: A large crowd gathered in Oola Community Centre on Saturday night for the Oola Gathering Tea Party; the funds raised were for Oola Defibiliator Group and the event was co-hosted by Oola ICA and Oola GAA. The event was a huge success as whole families gathered to celebrate Oola past and present, with Oola natives and new members of the community mixing and having a lovely time. On the night people meet new people and renewed old friendships. All in all a great community event - more details and thanks to follow in the coming weeks.

OOLA GAA NOTES: Intermediate Football Championship Oola 0-14 Gerald Griffins 0-8: This was a much more hard earned win than the scoreline suggests. Following a bright start, Oola raced into an early three point lead with points from Darragh Stapleton, Brian Fenton and Raymond Ryan. We also wasted a number of good opportunities and allowed Gerald Griffins back into the game and the sides were level at four points a piece at halftime. The second half was tit for tat with Gerald Griffins taking an eight points to seven lead with ten minutes remaining. However a late scoring blitz, with Oola scoring seven points without reply saw us running out with a flattering six points win.

Team: John O’Grady, Pat Ryan, Padraig Ryan, Don Anderson, Raymond Ryan, Eoin Fitzgibbon, James Power, Darragh Stapleton, Conor Ryan, Kevin Heuston, Brian Fenton, Gavin Heuston, David Donovan, Daniel Quirke, Fiachra O’Grady. Don Holmes, Shane Whelan, Kevin Nolan, John Heuston
