The Under 13s have been very competitive in the Tàin league and continue their development.

Seven men on the county U17 squad is just reward for the work these lads, and Pat, have put in.

Our Seniors are, again, showing great improvement. Games that were lost before are now very competitive with the odd draw and win helping to keep all motivated with Championship around the corner.
