Thank you

We would like to thank everyone for attending the hugely successful fundraising lunch in the Hodson Bay Hotel on Sunday last. It was a terrific day and as always was superbly supported by the local community. We would especially like to thank the Hodson Bay Hotel for sponsoring this lunch and of course the companies which donated prizes for the raffle.

Senior Ladies

Connacht Semi-Final

St. Brigid’s 1-8, Kilkerrin/Clonberne 2-20.

Our Hamrock’s sponsored senior ladies travelled to Ballinlough on Saturday last to take on Galway champions Kilkerrin/Clonberne in the senior ladies Connacht semi-final. However it wasn’t to be our day with the Galway champions proving to be a dominant force for the majority of the game.

Hard luck to our senior ladies and their management team.  We would like to thank you for all your hard work and commitment throughout the pass year and relate how proud we are of this team for coming back once again and winning their eighth county title out of the last ten. Thanks for giving us another great year.

The senior ladies would also like to thank everyone that help out throughout the year-the club executive, the ladies committee and its members, the water girls, the physios-Pat Regan and Darren Owens, coaches-John O’Connor, Anthony Jinks, Tom and Brian Lennon. A special mention to Donie Hamrock for his continuous support and sponsorship and of course a thanks to all the backroom team that helped in any way possible.

The senior ladies would also like to thank their management team of Laura Harrison, Aisling Dooley and Tomas Beades for the countless hours of training, preparation and work they did for the team.

For full match report please see sports section of local papers.

U14 Girls County Semi Final

St. Brigid’s 1-4 vs St. Croan’s 5-2.

Our EMC sponsored u14 girls took on St. Croan’s in the county semi-final on Sunday last in Kiltoom. The final score does not do this game any justice with Brigid’s missing a number of goal chances and two penalties. However as always our girls did not give up until the final whistle and battle hard to create as many scoring chances as possible. Lady luck was just not shining on our side on Sunday however and St. Croan’s now move forward to the county final.

Well done to this u14 team they have had an extremely long year and deserve a huge amount of credit for the time and commitment they have put in all year. They are a fantastic group of girls that will no doubt be back next year and we are very proud of these girls for everything that they have achieved this year. A big thanks to their management team and background team for their hard work all year also.

Team: A. Nestor, E. Carroll, H. Daly, C. Dolan, E. Gleeson, A. Coyle 1-1, E. Kennedy, R. Gallagher, R. Callaghan, J. McGrane, K. Harmon, R. Collins 0-1, N. Donnelly, E. Curran, L. Hannon.
