Juvenile GAA: The juvenile club had a busy but very successful last week. The U8s had two teams taking part in a hurling blitz last Saturday morning in Morris Park, they played 3 games each and displayed some great skills. Our U10s played Holycross also last Saturday and were victors in that game. In preparation for the semi-finals the U12A team had challenge matches against Cahir and Moyle Rovers. Their match was played last Tuesday evening so match report next week. Hard luck to the U12 third football team who were beaten by Drom by a single point in extra time last Wednesday evening in Dualla, a thrilling and hard fought match. Well done to the U14 football panel who beat Gortnahoe last Thursday in Gortnahoe and finally to the U16s footballers who beat Moyne last Monday evening in Boherlahan. Having been down by 6 points at half time they showed a more positive and determined second half, well done lads. Our chairman is compiling an e mail address list, which will be used as soon as fixtures come available. Parents are asked to text Martin Bourke their e-mail address, this will be of great benefit to parents as they will be aware of forthcoming matches well in advance and they will also receive a confirmation text.
