We’re in training for Munster blitz and Town League.

We played in the annual Sandra Keane Blitz last Saturday and qualified for the plate final where we met Castlegregory in a great match where either team could have won in normal time. Castle equalised in normal time and we went to extra time where despite our best effort we lost out by a goal. Well done to all the players and management – you did the jersey proud.
