Ladies are Junior B Champions
Congratulations to our ladies Junior team who won the Junior B Championship when they beat hot favourites Shannon Gaels in the final. They beat Cavan Gaels in the semi-final earlier to qualify for the final. Gemma Cullen was the captain of a very young side blended with some seasoned players and the experience at this level should be invaluable to them and the club as they mature into the adult ranks. Well done also to Aisling Walls who was awarded Player of the Match for her performance.

Under 12 Boys are County Champions
Massive congratulations to our U12 Boys who are county champions after beating Castletara in the final recently.
In the Championship, wins over Gowna and Cuchulainns were followed by an unlucky defeat to Lacken. But the team bounced back in style last weekend with a convincing win over Kingscourt in Bailieboro to qualify comfortably for the quarter-finals. Our opponents won’t be confirmed until a number of play-offs take place.
Senior Reserve Men
The Reserves face Cootehill in the Reserve Championship final which hasn’t been fixed yet. Best of luck lads.
Under 16 Boys
The U16s are in Division 2 for the championship with Blackwater Gaels, Ballyhaise and Cuchulainns. There were home and away fixtures with the top two qualifying for the final. They won their first game against Cuchulainns but lost both games to Ballyhaise. They bounced back by taking all four points from Blackwater Gaels and beat Cuchulainns along the way to qualify for the final where they will meet Ballyhaise again this Thursday (07/09). Best of luck lads. Please support them.
Our U14 Boys are in Division 2 (Group 1) for this year’s Championship. Other teams in our group are Cavan Gaels, Cootehill and Crosserlough. They won their first game against Crosserlough last Saturday. We also have a team in Division 5 along with Ballinagh, Kildallon, Crosserlough, Castletara St Patrick’s, Shercock and Cuchulainns. They won their first game against Castletara last week but lost their second game away to Kildallan last Sunday by just a point in a high-scoring game.
