Games Last Weekend – On Saturday evening last the Senior team took on Glencar/ Manorhamilton in the first game in the Senior League.

Next up for the Seniors is Sean O Heslin’s, Ballinamore at 6.30pm next Saturday evening in Ballinamore. Good Luck to all the players and mentors.
The Junior team took on a strong Carrigallen team in Melvin Park on Sunday last in Division 2 and despite playing some good football were beaten on a scoreline of Carrigallen 2-12, Melvin Gaels 0-9. This was a good performance by the Gaels considering many of these young players were playing their first game at this level.
