Elphin GAA Update August 23rd

Hard luck to the Senior team and management on their 0-5 to 2-13 defeat to Michael Glaveys. Unfortunately things didn’t go our way on the day but thanks to the players and management for pulling together in difficult circumstances with Covid-19. We survived a very difficult group and let’s look forward to next year and playing senior club football again.

The Juniors play Padraig Pearses in the Championship next Sunday in Orchard at 2pm. Due to the recent Covid19 restrictions supporters are not allowed to attend the game. Best of luck lads.

Elphin-Ballinameen Underage Update

The Elphin Ballinameen U12 Div 5 game V Clann na Gael was postponed and has now been rescheduled for Wednesday next at 6.30 in the Orchard and they will also play Roscommon Gaels on Saturday 29th in the Orchard – time TBC. Best of luck Lads.

The Elphin Ballinameen U16 Team suffered a defeat to a much stronger Western Gaels team played in terrible conditions on Monday last. They then played a hard game against Kilbride on Friday beating them 3-7 to 2-6. Each and everyone of them gave a excellent team performance with a hard work rate. Well done lads!

The Minor game v St. Michaels was postponed due to a clash with the Ballinameen Intermediate game. This game is now fixed for Sunday 6th September.
