Referees we are actively encouraging people who have played the game to consider taking up the referee mantle. Without referees our games cannot go ahead, it is a way of giving back to the game and indeed in staying involved with the GAA family. If you would consider taking up the challenge, contact any committee member who will ensure that you are trained and supported all the way. Give it a go!

The boys, led by captain Harry McQuillan, ably demonstrated their skills and abilities with the hurl and emerged victorious on a score line of Blayney 5-04 Na Magha 0-06. Conaire Casey deservedly won the Player of the Match award. Well done lads, keep those winning ways going!

Having beaten Lancashire in Pairc na h-Eireann on Sunday last, this is an important match for the lads and all support is very welcome.
