Pride of place this week goes to our Ladies senior team who left everything on the field on Saturday but were defeated by a strong Kilbride team. Well done to team and management on their wonderful campaign and congratulations to Kilbride on their wonderful achievement of 5 in a row.

Our U14s were defeated by Oran/St Croans on Friday evening. They will now play Roscommon Gaels in semi final on Saturday at 1.30pm. Our Junior B team will start their campaign on Saturday when they play Kilglass away at 4.30pm. We wish the team and management the very best of luck.

Many thanks to Pádraig Glancy for sponsorship of tops for our U16 combined team. The Glancy family have been very generous to our combined teams over the last few years and we are very grateful.

Our 404020 draw took place again on Sunday night, winner was Aisling Hoey who won €430, our charity got €215 which brings their total for the month to €631. Please support at www.404020.ie

DRIVE IN BINGO continues every Sunday evening at 8pm in Glancys SuperValu carpark. Thanks to all the volunteers for their help.

Sympathy of the club is extended to the Whyte family Woodbrook on the passing of Margaret Whyte RIP. Our thoughts are with you all at this difficult time. As a mark of respect to Margaret and the Whyte family a minutes silence was observed before our Ladies final on Saturday.
