Kinawley Football Tournament     

Saturday was a wonderful day for our U8 and U10 teams as they competed with the best at the Annual U8 & U10 Kinawley Tournament in Co Fermanagh.  Our boys and girls were magnificent ambassadors for the club – playing delightful football, providing great enjoyment for their families and filling their coaches with a great sense of pride.  Both teams reached their respective Cup Finals against Derrygonnelly Harps with our U10s coming up just short on the day and our U8s crowned Cup winners. Well done again to both teams and their coaches Rob Campbell and Kenneth McMorrow (U8s) and Dominic Kelly and James Glancy (U10s).  Finally, we wish to express our sincere thanks and admiration to the Kinawley GAA Club who hosted this fantastic tournament and for looking after all our players, mentors and their families so well with their welcome and hospitality.
