Girls Semi Final
Our girls’ gaelic football team are playing Kiltale tomorrow in Kilmessan National School. We wish them the best of luck as they try to make the final for a second successive year.
Our boys’ gaelic football team lost narrowly in the semi-finals last Friday. They fought gallantly to the very end. They were exceptionally sporting in defeat which was great to see. Well done boys.
