Elphin GAA Update May 8th

Adult Football

Well done to the seniors who defeated St Aidans on a scoreline of 1-11 to 0-11. Hard luck to the Juniors who were defeated by St Barry’s on Friday evening.

Elphin Ballinameen Underage Round-up

It’s been a very busy week with our underage Elphin Ballinameen teams.

The U12’s Div 2 and Div 5 teams have had great wins over the week beating St. Aidan’s, Kilbride, and St. Barry’s.

U14’s suffered a loss to Kilmore/Shannon Gaels/St. Ronan’s.

The U16’s played the League Semi Final on Saturday beating St. Michaels 7-11 to 2-10. They are now in the Final v St. Dominics on May 15th in Kilbride at 7:30pm

The Minors played the League Quarter Final on Tuesday beating Roscommon Gaels 1-7 to 5 pts
They beat Tulsk in the Semi Finals on Friday evening bringing them onto the Final today. They played their hearts out against a strong Padraig Pearses team, with both sides level at full time. Unfortunately Pearses pulled away in the second half of extra time. Full time score 2-14 to 1-12 . Hard luck to team and management but they did us proud. Wish Gavan Murray a speedy recovery on his injury he picked up.

Congrats to John Finnerty, Evan Gunn, Sam and Jude O’Rourke and Evan Murray on winning the Connacht Colleges C Championship with Scoil Mhuire, Strokestown.

Garda Vetting

It is a requirement that all coaches or anyone working with children need to be Garda vetted. Garda vetting is a requirement for all organizations. Therefore, if you have not been specifically vetted with the GAA, we would ask that you arrange to be Garda vetted as soon as possible.
Please log onto GAA E-Vetting and follow the vetting process or you can find out more about Vetting here.
Thank you for your co-operation.
