Minors: The minor squad have no scheduled fixtures until school examinations are over.


U-16s: The U-16s continued their unbeaten run in the championship when they defeated Padraig Pearses on Friday evening last in Woodmount. This was a very competitive game with a final score line of St Brigid’s 6-5, Padraig Pearses 3-9. Team and scorers: Cormac McDonnell, Eddie Nolan, Dylan Kelly, Darren Carroll, Gavin Byrne, Ciaran Walsh, Jimmy Curley, Brian Stack (0-1), Conor Murray (1-0), Shane Furey (1-0), Paul Daly, Anthony Ryan (0-1), Jack McDonnell (0-2), Luke Carty (2-1), Keelan Byrne. Subs used. Damon Daly for D. Carroll, Fiachra Lennon (2-0) for J. Curley, Brian Daly for S. Furey, Colin Daly for P. Daly,  Ross Nestor for K. Byrne .


U-14s: The U-14s were defeated at home in the league last week by Oran on a score line of  2-18 to 1-10. St Brigid’s found it very difficult to get a hold of the game in the early stages while Oran started the game in blistering form, scoring the majority of scores in the first period. St Brigid’s came out in the second half and looked more determined to make a mark on the game. Seamus Smith and Tom O’Carroll got some early scores to settle the team while in defence Gary Daly’s and Pearse Frost’s determination settled matters in the backs. Moving Eoin Minagh to midfield gave better balance and the introduction of subs, in particular Ruairi Smith and Pearse Frost, helped Brigids fight back and give Oran a good game in the second half. Overall, it was a good team performance again but there are areas which Brigids need to improve on. In the second half, there were moments which showed this team’s potential. Squad: Daniel Sugrue, Mark Haran, Eoin Minagh, Gary Daly, Adam Murtagh, Tommy Glynn, Jack Gartland, Billy McDonnell, John Leonard, Seamus Smith, Donnchadh Gately, Ciarán Sugrue, Cathal Sweeney, Liam Martin, Tom O’Carroll. Subs: Keelan Connor, Cian Daly, Pearse Frost, Cathal O’Grady, Ian O’Rourke, Ruairi Smith. The next game is against St. Ciarans this Monday evening, May 20th, in Kiltoom at 7pm. 


U-12s: The U-12s got back to winning ways in the Easyfix tournament when they defeated St Ciarans in Fuerty last Saturday on a score line of 3-18 to 2-2. This was an excellent all-round performance by the whole team.


U-10s: The St  Brigid’s U-10s  had a very good work out when they participated in the Football ‘Go Games’ blitz on Saturday afternoon last in Kiltoom.
