Our U13's played Ballindereen last week in Ballindereen. We again fielded a very young but enthuastic side who showed their commitment by getting to Ballindereen for a 6.30pm start. We played very well in the first half and could of gone in at halftime a few points up but we let some chances slip from us and went in 5points to 1point down, but in the 2nd half Ballindereen found it a lot easier and opened us up and ran out winners in the end. But again credit to all players for there great spirit and never give up attitude. We are now through to the quarter final which will be next Mon 23rd, with venue, time and opposition to be confirmed. Panel was Rhys Forde, Niall Farragher, Gearoid Quirke, Dan Lydon, Mark Crehan, Niall Forde!

Last weekend we hosted the Festival of Music in the Abbey Inn and an enjoyable weekend was had by all. We want to sincerely thank all the Artists who gave of their time and created a wonderful atmosphere over the two days and Tommy Devane who compared the festivities, it was much appreciated. Thanks to Paddy & Gerry who were so helpful with the premises, Deirdre Jordan who provided the food and all the sponsors who contributed to the event.  In helping to advertise the event we want to express our deep gratitude to Jim Carney- Tuam Herald, Ollie Turner- Galway Bay and the Connacht Tribune for their coverage over the past 2 weeks. Finally a special thank you to John P Keane & Michael Coleman who were the main driving forces and worked tirelessly in helping to stage the two day event. Overall we think a good week-end was had by all and next year…!!
