Bord na nOg: Well done to our u14 hurlers who completed their campaign with two fine wins against Ahane and Monaleen.

Final league table not yet issued but most likely we have finished fifth just outside the semi final placing.

This was the first time in a number of years that the u14s competed in the top flight and great credit is due to management and players for some excellent performances throughout the year.

Next up will be a shield semi final, fixture to be confirmed.

The u13 hurlers play their first game on Wed 4th Sept with a home game against Ballybrown. Throw in 7pm

Our u16 footballers complete their campaign with a home game against Ahane. Throw in 7pm.

Our u9s and u10s had two cracking games with Cois Lea Gaels last week in Staker Wallace field.

Great displays all round highlighted by performances from Thomas Lillis, Cathal O’Brien, Jake Farrell and Tadgh Corkery .

We had a great turnout for our end of summer camp with almost 50 children turning out on both mornings.

Thanks to all coaches for giving up their time to attend.
