Elphin LGFA Update

Our U16’s were defeated by St. Croans last Tuesday evening away. Elphin-Kilmore were low on numbers and missing quite a few key players so had their younger players play up for the match. It was a tough game against a stronger St. Croans side. They play Kilbride at home on the 10th September in the Division 2 Quarter Finals at 6pm.

Elphin Kilmore U12’s finished out the season Sunday morning with a 5 team blitz hosted by Shannon Gaels. The participating teams were Elphin Kilmore, Shannon Gaels, St. Barry’s, Boyle and St. Ronan’s / St. Michael’s. The blitz was sponsored by Carrick Tiles and Bathrooms. St. Barry’s won the blitz with all teams receiving medals for participation. Thank you to Shannon Gaels for a great morning of football and for the lovely refreshments provided after. That brings to a close the U12 football for 2019. Thank you to the mentors Elayne Travers, Michael Cox and Pat Gormley for all their hard work and commitment throughout the year.
