U3 Championship Final – After beating St Bridget’s in our semi final at home which was a very close encounter, we booked our place in the final versus Ballinamore in Cloone last Saturday morning at 12 o’clock. We started the game lively putting over 5 points in quick succession. As Ballinamore settled into the game it was tit for tat for the rest of the half. At half time we went in with a lead 09 to 05. We started the second half where we left off in the first half and never surrendered our lead for the rest of the game. From start to finish we displayed great team work everyone working for each other all over the field. From our goalkeeper David Liu Doyle kick outs to our fullbacks Luke and Tommy keeping Ballinamore out. Our center half backs George, Jonathan and Nathan defending with real tenacity, our midfield pairing of Jack and Mathew controlled kick outs and set up several attacks. The three center half forwards Adam , Riaghan and Brian won vital ball to set up scores with Adam getting the only goal of the game. Our two inside forwards worked hard, Ultán setting up scores and Noah picking off the scores at vital stages in the game. There was some great free taking on display both from the hands and off the ground. Oisin and Jack played their part when they came off the bench to help out. We also had Aaron, Senan, Brian, Ben, Ollie and Ryan to call on too. We ran out winners on a score line 1-16 to 12 points. This group of lads have put in a huge effort all year and their hard work has paid off in style in winning the U13 championship. Well done to the entire panel and their mentors Tom, Seamus, Ciaran and Richie.

Under 12 Cross Border Plate Champions – What a game we had in Longford last Sunday morning! It was like a shoot-out at high noon. We thought we saw everything from this group but they held their best till last. Ballymahon started off very fast where they went into 2-02 lead before we hit back with 4 points. At halftime, the score read 2-03 to 0-06 in Ballymahon’s favor. They held the lead the whole way through the second half until the last minute when Gortletteragh kept battling and found a way to draw the game. With the game ending in a draw, extra time ensued, it was getting like the World Cup. After extra time and some huge displays of composure and determination, with skill and a never say die attitude from our backs, midfielders and forwards and a man of the match performance from our goalkeeper we came out on top with a scoreline of 1-12 to 2-08. Team: Ultán McNulty, Brian Liu Doyle, Ben Cunningham, Daragh McGirl, David Liu Doyle, Patrick Gormley, George Glaze, Noah McNulty, John McGoldrick, Tommy Reen, Cian Sorohan, Mathew Carlton, Tomas Hynes, Andrew Bohan, Ryan Egan, Tadhg Crowe, Ollie McManus,
