Our Under 12 Boys Senior and Development teams have been drawn in a group alongside Scotstown, Donaghmoyne and Emyvale. We confirm all fixtures once we have received them.

Juvenile Training Can we ask all parents/guardians to please make sure that their Children have their Gum Shields with them each week; we are also encouraging the Boys and Girls to take their own water bottles with their name on them to every training session and match.

Under 10 Training Training resumes this Thursday night on Our Lady’s Astro Turf at 7pm, we will also have training on Saturday morning at 10am to 11.15 am in Our Lady’s Gym. Please make sure that the boys have Gum Shield and Water with them.

Danske Bank MacRory Cup semi-final Last Sunday saw us host the Danske Bank MacRory Cup semi-final between St Pats Cavan and Omagh CBS. In a defensive encounter, St Patrick’s Cavan came through to their first final in 40 years after a thoroughly deserved five points win. The winners looked the better side throughout and they now face St.Patricks Dungannon in the decider on St Patrick’s Day.
