There were three lucky dip winners who get €20 each: John Kendrick, Maria Burke and Anne Cummins. Congratulations to all winners!

SENIOR GAA

Ardfinnan and Fethard needed extra time to separate them on Saturday night last in Clonmel.

Fethard came out on top of this extremely close battle on a score line of 0-11 to 0-10.

This unfortunately ends our involvement in this year’s senior championship. A big thanks to the players and management for their efforts throughout the year.

JUNIOR GAA

The Junior team lost to Newcastle on Thursday night, August 9, in Clogheen.

Thankfully this game was not critical as both teams had already qualified for the South semi finals.

The Juniors will now meet St Pat’s in this semi final.

Keep an eye on The Nationalist fixtures page for further details on when this game will take place.

Under 6

Liam is playing great stuff at the moment and is improving his skills week in week out. Well done Liam keep up the good work.
