A chairde,



It was an extremely busy week just passed between homecomings, Super 8s, county representatives and even another piece of silverware collected by our second U14 Football Girls team who won the shield on Sunday beating Mountbellew Moylough. Congrats to all involved. Best of luck to Laura Kelly and Emma Madden who will play in the All Ireland U16 Ladies Football Final tonight in Tipperary. The girls will be hoping to add to their U14 title which they claimed last year. Best wishes also to Sinead Madden, Emma's mother who is a mentor with the team. All the information and much more below:
