Heartbreaking result for Killenaule Moyglass u12 boys soccer who kept Abbeyside, Waterford scoreless after extra time only to lose on penalties. However the area won silver medals in u10 indoor soccer.

Mary Walsh always pulls one out of the bag in the skittles ring and this year was no exception when the under 14 mixed team won gold after a long game.
