U14 Boys

The club would like to congratulate the u14 boys on their success throughout the year and the many wonderful days out they gave the club. Unfortunately they lost out to Clan na nGael by a single point in the county final replay on Saturday evening last, however both the replay and the initial game were brilliant games and the battling spirit and determination of the players, management team and all their supporters is an absolute credit to the club and we have no doubt this team will be back again next year. Well done lads you did us proud.
