There was no club activities last weekend due to the death of Patty Keenan (nee Doyle )wife of our former Chairman Liam and mother of Tom, John and Liam.
She was a well respected member of the community and Aughrim Gaa would like to send their sympathies to the Keenan family and their extended families at this sad time .Ar Dheis go raibh a anam.
On a happier note we would like to send congratulations to John Keenan on being selected to referee the All Ireland minor hurling final next Sunday. Our next outing in the league is against Ballinacor come along and give the lads a bit of support. Our juniors play Donard on Saturday and a win will see them into the semi-final. Hard luck to the U16 county camogie girls who were defeated by Tyrone on Sunday last in the All-Ireland final. Well done to all involved with this group. Best of luck to the Aughrim U14’s who play in the A championship final.
