A huge congratulations to players and management of the Intermediate team in securing a quarter final place in the intermediate championship with a hard fought 2-12 to 1-06 victory over a very gallant Rathnew team. All efforts now build onto a meeting with Baltinglass in 2/3 weeks time.
Hard luck to our Junior team who met a very good Blessington side on Thursday night and lost meaning their season is now over. A huge thank you is extended to all those involved and those who helped field a team during the year.

Juvenile GAA

Aughrim Juveniles had a great week of Cul Camps recently, the pitch was in immaculate condition and the weather was hot and dry for the most part, Thanks to Leighton Glynn and his crew, that included our own Conor Lambert for making the week such a great success. We had well over one hundred kids in attendance, breaking all previous attendance records, so thanks also to all parents for sending their kids and to the kids for putting in the effort at the camp. By all accounts they had a fun filled and very enjoyable week.
Aughrim U12 footballers had some success in recent weeks beating AGB and Avondale in football. The team are really progressing well and are playing some very attractive football. The U12 hurlers are also doing well, they beat Eire Og, but went down to Glenealy in a very entertaining game of hurling. The spirit of the team is second to none and the boys will soon get their just rewards.
The Go Games continue to keep the U8 and U10 footballers and hurlers busy. St Pats, Wicklow was the venue for the last hurling blitz where Aughrim did very well in both age groups, while in football Knockananna hosted the football blitz and again Aughrim held their own. The hurlers are of to the Arklow Rocks on Friday night and the week after Aughrim will host the football blitz.
Training continues for the U6, U8, and U10 kids on Tuesday nights from 6.30pm, we welcome all kids to come along and try out the games even if they haven’t already done so to date.
 We would also ask parents to make a bigger effort to bring their kids to the blitzes. They can learn so much more at games than they do at training.
Please have a look at the Aughrim GAA website for updates on all U12 games.
