Congratulations to our adult Camogie teams who got off to a great start to the leagues on Tuesday evening with three out of three wins. Ladies football didn't get the same reward on Wednesday. This weekend sees the leagues for adult and juvenile start in earnest, all fixtures and results are on the home page of the website.

We are pleased to again offer Summer Camps in association with club sponsor Keane Windows & Doors. There will be 3 Club camps this year for those age 5 to those turning 12 this year. And an Irish language Summer Camp - in association with Foras na Gaeilge. Full details on our website.


The u10 girls have been busy the last few months. Many of the girls have taken part in a scavenger hunt with their football or sliotar in tow, others have been busy telling us about their favourite sports person through the medium of art, and more have been practicing their camogie skills with the help of videos from the senior girls. The girls received certificates, medals and sliotars for all their hard work.
