Rackard League Champions on the Double.

Massive Congratulations and Well Done to the girls and boys Rackard Camogie and Hurling teams from Ballyellis NS and Ballyroebuck NS whowon the Roinn A Camogie girls and the Roinn B Hurling boys County titles for the second year in a row.

This is a wonderful and proud achievement for our schools and the parish. Even though the conditions during both matches were very wet and slippy the sheer determination
and skill of each of the Kilrush players ensured that we were witnessing a thrilling spectacle right up to the final whistle in both games. Huge credit to the girls and boys of both panels for their dedication, also to the teachers, mentors, parents and Kilrush /Askamore Camogie and Hurling Clubs for their massive help and support throughout  the year.
