Minor Footballers exited the A C’Ship at Q/F stage after going down in an intensely fought out c’ship match 1-11 to 0-11 away to Kilmacud Crokes. Both gave their all out on the field in wet conditions.

Unfortunately this year only 1 side comes out of the group, as our team could have done with another few games to get into their stride. Thanks to all the club members and parents who came out to support.

Well done to these group of lads who have been together since 1998. You should be very proud of your achievements over the years and we wish them well as they progress into the adult section next year..
