Senior: Churchill return to action in the County League this Saturday evening with the visit of Kilgarvan to Churchill. Throw-in in Churchill is at 7:30pm.

Senior B: Churchill finished off their league campaign with a win against table toppers Tarbert on a scoreline of 2-09 to 0-12. The goals came at crucial times with Matt Finnerty scoring early in the second half to bring us back into the game and a late strike from Derek Nolan ensured victory.  The win wasn’t enough to secure a semi-final berth, but the victory will give confidence coming into the Championship next month.

 Academy: Huge numbers of U6, U8 & U10’s are continuing to attend our Academy on Sunday mornings at 11am. It is great to see so many parents showing interest and getting involved in the sessions. Great credit is due to all mentors who ensure that the sessions are challenging and entertaining for all the young footballers.  Training continues as usual this Sunday at 11am.

Churchill GAA Cul Camp is on from 31st July to 4th August, for boys and girls aged 6-13. For more details and to register check out

 U12: Training continues in Spa pitch at 7pm Tuesdays. There is a Blitz coming up in Fitzgerald Stadium on July 19th so a good attendance is required at training.

 U14: Churchill U14s welcomed Kerins O’Rahillys to The Spa on Monday last for the third round of games in the Central League Division 2.  Captain Eddie McCarthy won the toss and we played with the wind in the first half. Kerins O’Rahillys worked the ball well against the breeze, started strongly and score 2-9 and we replied with three points from Eddie and one from Conor Brick to trail 0-4 to 2-9 at halftime.

We started the second half like boys possessed with three goals from Eddie, Tommy Burns and Paddy Walsh. ORahillys scored a few points to keep their lead ticking over then added a goal.

Though we scored again through Eddie, Paddy and Conor and a fine effort from Cian Kearney, O’Rahillys scored a goal to kill our revival and we lost the second half by a point (3-8 to 4-4). It finished 4-8 to 5-17. There was strong running throughout by Cian, Niall had a stormer in midfield, our full backs and goalie Eoghan, Ben, Harvey and Paddy defended very well when under regular pressure. This week we travel to Glenbeigh/ Glencar/ Cromane and we look forward to our last central league match at home next week when John Mitchels visit.

U16: U16 training continues on Wednesday nights in the new pitch from 7.30pm-8.45pm.  Our next game in the County League is scheduled for Wednesday, 19th July, at home v’s Na Gaeil, at 7pm.
