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.
Well done to Caoimhe Meehan who played in a huge camogie blitz which coincided with the All Ireland Camogie finals in Dublin over last weekend.
