U16 HURLING
An Gaelteacht were visitors to Clogherane for the latest round of the u16 Championship last Friday night and they went home to Ring and Old Parish with a substantial win to further their cause. We seem to be very unlucky with injuries and absentees this year, which is a shame for the manager Eamonn Morrissey  who has put Trojan work into this group. On Monday night at Clogherane our u16s gave a spirited performance to win against Ferrybank in a vital match for this group, keep it going lads.

About Dungarvan GAA Club

Dungarvan GAA Club was affiliated to the Gaelic Athletic Association on June the 1st 1885 - the first club in Waterford to do so. Through thick and thin, good times and bad, we have stayed the pace, and to-day we are the oldest - and I dare say the best - club in the county. We stand uniquely alone as the only club in the Decies to have won county championships in every grade from Under 12 up to senior in both codes.
