Carrick under 12 girls played O Neill Shamrocks in their second game in the league last Friday at home. This turned out to be another good performance from the girls with everyone playing their part in another good win. We have a bye this week and we are at home to Truagh on the 23rd July.

Our under 16s travel to Latton on Monday 11th to take on the home team. We are short some players because of holidays and injury. This game will determine who we play in the semi-final and where.

We have a senior game on Tuesday 12th at home to Sean’s at 7-30pm. We hope all girls are available.

We have Gaelic for Mothers on every Wednesday at 8pm in Emmett Park. We started last week and hope to have more ladies out this week. This is for any ladies from 18 upwards who are not playing competitive football and you don’t have to be a Mum. So ladies why not join us for a little exercise and some fun. For more details contact Orla on 0872393588 or Tommy on 0861600027.

And remember girls “Young Stars” is back in Emmet Park on 8th August.  Forms in Birdys newsagents.
