Michael OCallaghan Cup
Well done to everyone who participated in and attended the game on St Stephens Day. Funds raised were shared between the Elphin-Ballinameen Underage Teams and Down Syndrome North-East. The half-time parade featured a great display of silverware won by the Clubs and the Underage Teams over the past 12 months. View lots of photos from the day here.
