The Div 3 league clash with CT Gaels, scheduled for Sunday morning last, was called off as the opposition were unable to field a team. There is now a three week break to the next and final round in the group stages which will see the side travel to play Shamrock Gaels. Before then however the side have the important matter of the Shield Final in the Warm Up competition to attend to. The game is scheduled for Sunday next with Curry providing the opposition.

The U-12’s made it five wins from five with a sixteen scores to eight victory over St. Michaels during the week, securing top spot in their group. The side now advance to the quarter finals of the competition in which they will face St. Mary’s.

The U-14’s bounced back from their opening round defeat to record a good win over Geevagh in Round 2 on Tuesday last. The final score in that game was 6-7 to 1-3. The team will now have a break of a few weeks before facing Curry in the next round.

The U-16’s will entertain St. Nathy’s in their final group game on Tuesday May 8th with a place in the final of the Division 3 League at stake. The two teams currently occupy joint second place in the table on nine points each, three points behind table toppers Geevagh, who have already secured their place in the decider, thus making this a winner takes all clash.  Good luck to all involved.

A number of club players have been representing their county in recent times. Rachel O’Brien contributed 3-2 to her sides total on Friday last as the girls from the Yeats County defeated Leitrim by 8-11 to 7-11 in the Connacht U-16 “C” Final in the Connacht Centre of Excellence. Club Junior team manager Paul O’Brien was a member of the side’s management team. A week earlier Claire Dunne, Alanna Cunnane and Holly Davis all starred for the Sligo Minor Ladies in their 5-14 to 3-8 win over Leitrim in the Connacht “C” Final in that particular grade. Eimear Kearins is also a member of the Minor squad but was unavailable for that game. Well done to all.

Well done to St Farnan’s GAA players Paddy O’Connor, Finian Cawley and Eamon Kilgannon who were part of the Sligo squad which beat London in the Connacht Senior Championship opener in Ruislip on Sunday.
