Best of luck ladies! All support will be much appreciated.

Gaelic for Mothers and Others:

This bunch of ladies are putting in serious training for their up coming All Ireland blitz in Portmarnock, on the weekend of October 6th. On Sunday last, they travelled to Athea for a challenge game.  Special thanks to Adele for organising all our games/ training sessions, and to one of our coaches, Lorraine O’ Sullivan, who travelled along and gave us tremendous coaching and guidance from the side line. While some of us didn’t follow all her instructions to the ‘t’ -as in put the ball over the bar or between the posts, we still managed to come away with a victory!!

Sincere thanks to Athea for their super hospitality and to our supporters who travelled along. We wish all those with injuries a speedy recovery.

Next up is a challenge game with Legion next week. Cailiní Abú !
