U7’s/U9’s Go Games Blitz Well done to our u7s/u9s who travelled to Truagh on Sunday morning for their Go Games Blitz. They played 4 games against Truagh, Clontibret, Carrickmacross and Inniskeen. The weather was fine for hurling, thanks to Truagh for hosting.


U-13’s had 2 league games last week against Monaghan Harps and Latton and after two very competitive matches they won both of them. They have qualified for the cup final play off and we will know who they are playing when the final round of matches are played this week. Training Wednesday evening 6 to 7 in St Mary’s Park juvenile pitch. Well done boys.

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!


FOCUS – a Journey through the Lens is a photographic exhibition, by Glenn Murphy running in Iontas until the end of August. We, like many other clubs & organisations in the area, fully appreciate and enjoy the wonderful moments in time captured by Glenn in matches and at events, not to mention the stunning works from nature. A feast for the eyes, so make sure to go along to Iontas….an event not to be missed. Congratulations again, Glenn!
