Our U12 Camogie girls were in action on Saturday Morning in a blitz in Oran. Two Gaels teams participated and played with skill and determiniation which showed all they have learned since training started in February. Well done girls.
Junior Camogie: Since St Dominics pulled out of the Junior camogie championship we were left with no game to play last Tuesday. Luckily we managed to arrange a challenge match against Sylane of Galway so on Tuesday our team travelled down and got on very well. This was an excellent, very entertaining game of camogie and the girls performed well. The girls now turn their attention to the Junior championship again and play away to Padraig Pearses at 8pm on Tuesday evening 24th July in the final round robin game. Mike Ryan is down to referee the game and all players should be at Pearses pitch by 7pm. A win could secure a place in the county semi-final while a loss might mean a play-off date.
*There is a Camogie Club meeting on Friday Evening in Lisnamult at 8pm.
U8 & U10’s: Another great Challenge Match was enjoyed our young group of emerging stars last Wednesday Evening when our U8’s and U10’s had a challenge match against St. Brigid’s. It is great and encouraging to see all the kids improving weekly. Training continues Wednesday Evenings at 6.30pm.

U16’s: U16’s won away to St Aidan’s this afternoon to secure our second win in the championship. It was another great performance on a very warm day. Due to a lot of players missing because of holidays and other sports, we only had 15 togged out. We played some lovely football and showed great heart. We inevitably tired in the second half and Aidans to their credit got back into the game and made it a nervy finish for us. Our lads character shone through and we deserved our win in a game that was keenly contested. A big thank you to all the lads who turned out today, especially our U14 duo, for their commitement and dedication to the team.
Seniors: Our senior team played in the O’Rourke Cup today final score was St. Faithleach’s 4-15 Roscommon Gaels 2-11.
