Minors: Best of luck to the St Brigid’s contingent of Shane Mannion, Brian Stack, Luke Carty and Conor Murray ahead of the Roscommon minors Connacht Final showdown with Mayo on Sunday in Castlebar.


U-14s: The U-14 Division 1 team put in an incredible shift in the second half of their championship game away to Oran on Thursday last to secure the points. Trailing by ten points at half-time, the team staged an amazing comeback, winning on a scoreline of 5-10 to 3-7. On the evening before, the U-14 Division 4 team put in a good performance in the championship but lost out narrowly away to St Michaels who prevailed by 6-6  to 4-6. Another Division 1 championship game is scheduled away to Strokestown on Thursday next while the Division 4 team are due to play Roscommon Gaels at home on the same evening.


U-12s: On Monday of last week in the Division 1 league, a strong second half showing and a flurry of goals ensured St Brigid’s got the better of a game St. Ciaran’s side in Kiltoom to win out on a scoreline of 7-8 to 2-5. Despite missing a few players and losing out narrowly, the Division 3 side put in an excellent second half performance on Sunday last away to Shannon Gaels. Staring into an eleven point deficit at half-time, the team put in a courageous display after the break, whittling down the lead to four points before time eventually ran out. Final scoreline: Shannon Gaels 4-12 St Brigid's 5-5.
