Congratulations

Congratulations to the Cahir Camogie Club who defeated Nenagh on Sunday to win the County Junior “B” Championship, the first adult title to be won by the club. Well done to all concerned and especially the management team of Mary Howard and Marie Casey.

Best Wishes

We wish the Ladies Football Club Intermediate team the best of luck in the Munster Final on Sunday, October 28. They play Eire Og (Cork) at a venue and time to be decided.

Juvenile

Our U8 squad travelled to Thurles last Saturday to a hurling and football blitz. They played Upperchurch/Drombane in hurling and football, Cappawhite in football and Loughmore in hurling. There were huge performances on the day, which resulted in victories for the lads in all the matches played. Well done to Richie Cagney, Tommy Barrett and their team of mentors. The lads are putting in a lot of work with these young players, and it is really showing dividends.

An U13 squad played a challenge match against Arravale Rovers last Saturday. Although Arravale won in the end the lads competed very well. It was a new experience for our younger players who were playing a full pitch for the first time.
