Congratulations to our Under 14 Football teams who will be travelling to Cork and Kerry to participate in the John West Féile na nÓg. The John West Féile na nGael National tournament is a Club festival for Gaelic football and Ladies Gaelic football at Under 14 level, involving teams from across the Association which will be held in Kerry, West Limerick and West Cork on the weekend of 24th – 26th June 2016.

The U14 Girls team played in the Féile on Tuesday evening in Bray. They had 2 games against Bray & Tinahely and were successful in retaining the Ellen Kinch Cup for the 5th year in a row. Lucy Dunne Captain lead her team in the now annual cavalcade through the main street to the clubhouse on Sunday evening where the girls were treated to a well-deserved pizza. Well done Eddie, Deirdre and girls.

We have a winner! Congratulations to Gerry Higgins in our 2016 Last Man Standing competition. For the last weekend of the competition they had to predict the winner of each of the football league finals as follows: Division 1: Dublin v Kerry, Division 2: Tyrone v Cavan, Division 3: Kildare v Clare and Division 4: Antrim v Louth. Gerry won our competition after going to the tie breaker based on the score between Dublin and Kerry. He had predicted 3 out of the 4 winners of the league finals as had Kieran Costello.  However, Gerry’s predicted score of 21 points to 14 in favour of Dublin was closer to the actual score of 24 points to 13 than Kieran’s predicted score of 17 points to 14.

Thanks to everyone who entered our competition.
