This is a key development for us and we aim to build on our past and build for the future. As part of this process we are holding a consultation Club Planning Workshop on Wednesday evening May 29TH 2013 FROM 7:30 PM TO 9:30 PM IN THE MAIN HALL OF St Brigids GAA Club. This is for all members, officers, coaches, players and for all in the community of Kiltoom and Cam.

The purpose of this Workshop is to give everyone in our community the opportunity to have their say and to make a meaningful impact on the future direction of this Club. This will be a workshop based event and will take no longer than two hours. Those present will discuss various topics in a structure way in small organised groups. Everyone present will have ample opportunity to contribute. The Workshop will be facilitated by a facilitator appointed by the County Board.

U-14s County Féile Final: Final scoreline - St Brigid’s 3-15, Oran 1-14. Hearty congratulations to the U-14 squad on a hard fought and impressive seven point win over Oran in a very competitive County Féile final in Ballyforan on Thursday last. Up against an Oran side which overcame Clann na nGael in the semi-final, St Brigid’s started the brighter with some early scores with the aid of the wind in the first half. However, despite facing into a breeze, Oran began to dominate in vital areas of the field and clawed their way back into the game. Courtesy of some very impressive team work and scoring, Oran took a one point lead going into half- time. The challenge was now set for St Brigid’s, a point down and facing into the wind after the break.  But they responded magnificently, taking hold of proceedings early on thanks in part to great displays in the middle from Niall Murray and Eoin Egan. Up front, Tom O’Carroll and Brian Derwin were outstanding, getting vital scores at important times while there were also some huge performances in defence from Tommy Glynn, Billy McDonnell and Eoin Minagh. It was another great team performance as all the substitutes who were introduced gave much needed energy and momentum to push St Brigid's over the line. Well done to the whole squad and management who now have the great honour of representing Roscommon in the All-Ireland Féile competition which takes place in Derry in June. Squad: Daniel Sugrue, Keelan Connor, Eoin Minagh, Gary Daly, Pearse Frost, Billy McDonnell, Tommie Glynn, Eoin Egan, Niall Murray, Ian O’Rourke, Donnchadh Gately, Ciaran Sugrue, Liam Martin, Brian Derwin, Tom O’Carroll. Subs: Ted Brosnan, Ronan Campbell, Cian Daly, Mark Haran, Jack Gartland, John Leonard, Cian McBrearty (inj.), Paul McGrath, Cathal O'Grady, Adam Murtagh, Cathal Sweeney, Ruáiri Smith, Matthew Cochrane, Seamus Smith.
