Glencar/Manorhamilton GAA Club Notes 20/09/2018

Senior & Junior Championships – It was a nail-biting game against Ballinamore SOH last Saturday evening in the Quarter Finals of the Championship with the sides drawing 2-11 apiece.  The replay takes place this Saturday evening in Páirc Seán at 5.30pm with the game preceded by the Junior A Championship meeting between Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher and St Marys at 4pm.   On Sunday at 12noon in Drumshanbo our Junior A team play Carrigallen in the Championship semi-final.  Both teams would appreciate your continued support this weekend in these crucial ties.  Best of luck to all.
