The big weekend at the club has just ended as our Cork visitors headed off on their long journey home on Sunday afternoon writes John Murphy.
It was a fantastic weekend enjoyed by all, and we wish to thank all those who helped in any small way in making this such a successful event. Congratulations are due to Killshannig as they retained the Girl’s trophy and won the Boy’s Tomas Russell Cup for the first time. Pictures of the weekend will be uploaded to the Facebook page. Thanks to Saul and Loughinisland for coming in on Saturday to participate in our blitz with Killshannig.[caption id="attachment_40907" align="alignleft" width="390"] Caption for photo.

Well done to the RGU Gaelic4Girls who graced Croke Park last Monday in the National Blitz. The girls had a super time and were left with great memories and hopefully filled with inspiration to continue playing gaelic football.
