Elphin-Kilmore Ladies Football Update:

Hard luck to our Elphin-Kilmore Minor Ladies Team who were defeated by Castlerea in the County Final. Although they won all their games en-route to the Final they were out done by a physically stronger and more experienced Castlerea team on this ocassion. Well done to Castlerea on their deserved win. The U14 Ladies lost their Division 1A Semi-Final to a well drilled and talented Éire Óg team. They will face Clann na nGael this weekend in the Division 1B Final (see Fixtures section for details). This group of girls have worked extremely hard all year and made huge improvement under the guidance of Martin Higgins and Damian Devanney. 

Scór na nÓg:

Well done to everyone who represented the Club in the Scór na nÓg County Semi-Finals and congratulations to the Instrumental Music, Set Dancing and Leiriu Groups who qualified for the County Final. Thank you to everyone who helped with the hosting of Saturday’s Semi-Final in the Community Centre.

Best of luck to the Quiz Team in their County Final on Sunday in Kilbride.
