We are away to Ardfert in Round 2 time and date T.B.C.

Our next Co. League game is at home to Skellig Rangers in round 4 on Saturday next May 10th at 7pm.

Our under fourteen team enjoyed a productive week in the county league winning both games. On Monday we travelled to Castleisland to play a back game against Desmonds and came away with a hard fought win in the end. In what was a tough physical encounter our lads showed great character to grind out the victory by a four point margin.

On Wednesday night we played our final league game out in Spa and came away with a comprehensive victory, the final score line 7-11 to 1-10.
This victory left us top of the table and paired us in a semi final at home to Dingle on Wednesday evening 7th May at 7.30. If our earlier league encounter is anything to go by this should be a game to savour. Hopefully the home support will see us through.

Details of Feile tournament should be to hand next week.
