Minor/U16 Ladies
Well done to our Minor team who maintained their 100% winning record with a comprehensive win over St Mary’s/Annaduff on Tuesday 5th September in Carrick (4-20 to 1-6). The girls have one remaining championship group game against Fenagh/Kiltubrid. No details of the fixture as yet. The U16 game versus St Mary’s last Sunday was cancelled due to the unavailability of a referee. The girls are scheduled to play St Brigids away this Sunday.

Senior Championship
Our seniors showed tremendous resolve to force a draw with the county champions Aughawillan in a nail-biting championship quarter final meeting last Saturday evening in Páirc Seán. Final Score Glencar Manor 0-11, Aughawillan 1-8. Please support our lads in the Replay this Saturday evening at 5pm in Páirc Seán – it is sure to draw a big crowd again.
