Elphin LGFA

Our U14’s were defeated by a very strong Four Roads side in an away game Sunday evening in round 5 of the championship. The girls put up a good fight and played very well. We were missing many of our usual players and our U12 girls stepped up and togged out for the game. Next match is away to Ballinameen, date and time to be confirmed.

We have extended the clothing collection to 17th August. So you still have time to do that clear out and drop your bags to the Orchard! Thank you to all who have donated clothes so far, it is greatly appreciated.
