Well done to all our Gaels Girls who are doing County Development at the Minute. We have lots of girls at U13 & U15. A group of our U14’s travelled to Limierick yesterday to the JP McManus Centre of Excellence in Martinstown to partake in the inaugural Ingenium Inter County Blitz with Limerick, Offaly, Laois and Roscommon batting it out for silverware. Roscommon overcame both Offaly,Laois and Limerick to setup a final with Limerick. Both sides played brilliantly. Roscommon missed a couple of Goal chances and were unlucky to be beaten by four points. Well done to our Roscommon Gaels Girls Hollie Harkin, Claire McNeilll, Chloe Donoghue, Caoimhe Walsh, Mikayla Martyn, Ellen Biesty, Eimear O’Farrell and Eadaoin Walsh who was doing the Stats.
