Under 8/ Academy
J.K. Brackens under 6's visited us on Saturday. We played three fantastic games at a very high standard. Well done to all our boys and thanks to the J.K. Brackens boys, girls and mentors.

Our under 8's travelled to play Moyle Rovers last Saturday, we would like to thank Moyle Rovers for the invitation, and the hospitality shown us.

Under 7 and under 8 blitz
There is a hurling blitz on in Holycross GAA pitch on Saturday, September 12th. It starts at 10.00am, We ask the players to assemble in Holycross for 9.45.  We expect to finish around 12 noon.

Under 10
Hurling training as usual on Saturday at 10.00, in Páirc na nÓg.

Please note no football training on Wednesday. We have finished football training for the season and will restart in the Spring.

Under 12
Both of our teams were in action this week. Our first team had a match against  Moycarkey at 7pm on Tuesday evening and our second team were playing Gaels. Further news to follow next week.

Under 14
Our U14's qualified for the A Co Hurling Final after a hard earned win v Knockavilla in the Semi final held in Clonoulty last Saturday. James Armstrong was the hero as he struck three first half goals to send us on our way. Despite playing against the wind we started well and had 1 01 on the scoreboard after two minutes but Knockavilla stormed back to level matters. Two further goals in the space of three minutes left the half time score 3 01 to 0 06 in our favour. The second half was a hard fought affair with Knockavilla reducing the deficit to just two points at one stage but our backs held firm with Conor Stapelton, Jordan Fahey and David Mawe prominent. At the other end Jack Lanigan scored the insurance point to leave the final score 3 07 to 1 10 in our favour. The final takes place in Boherlahan v Roscrea on Saturday  with a starting time of 2 o clock when we will be hoping to complete the double after securing the football title last June.

Under 16
Our two teams bowed out of the championship in the last two weeks .The first team lost out by a point to Holycross in a great contest while the second team were beaten last Monday by Boherlahan . The mentors would like to thank all players involved for putting in such great work throughout the year .
