The u14 girls and minor boys are the latest teams to book their places in County finals and our u16 boys won their County final last Friday night. We are very proud of all of our teams and we are encouraging all of our brilliant supporters to get behind the teams and get your flags and bunting up to show your support. 
On Sunday 15th October at 2pm our Junior A side take on Kilglass Gaels in Dr. Hyde Park in the County final. Please come along and support the lads.

Minor Boys Championship 

St. Brigid’s 2-15, Strokestown 0-9

For the second year in a row, St. Brigids minors are through to the county final, and one game away from retaining the title. This follows an impressive display in defeating a strong Strokestown team away on Sunday last. 

A slow start saw Brigids fall three points to no score behind and it took Paul McGrath to make his way up from wing back to open the scoring. Points were traded for the next five minute until Brigids went on a run themselves with scores from Donnacha Gately, Ciaran Sugrue and a free from Brian Derwin to draw level. Brigids pushed ahead after this and went in at the break 0-8 to 0-5 points ahead. 

Despite conceding the opening score of the half, Brigids again took control with Sugrue, Gately and Derwin keeping the score board ticking over. However it wasnt until the 45th minute that Brigids managed to pull away. A good move from the forwards saw the ball come across the square and was finished to the net by Cian McBrearty. The game was finished off five minutes later when Ciaran Sugrue finished to the net to leave Brigids 12 points to the good. 

The final score line read St. Brigids 2-15, Strokestown 0-9. Well done to all involved, and we look forward now to the county final.

 Team: Seamus Smith, Keelan O' Conner, Eoin Minagh, Gary Daly,  Pearce FrostCian McBrearty (1-1), Paul McGrath (0-1), John Leonard, Niall Murray ,Ian O' Rourke, Donnacha Gately (0-4 (1f)), Ruairí Smith, Eoin Egan, Ciarán Sugrue (1-4), Brian Derwin (0-5 (3f)).
