Murroe Boher Camogie: Next weekend sees our U16 team take on Newcastle West in the A final. This is currently set for Saturday (1st Oct) at 2pm in venue TBC. For updates stay tuned to our Facebook page. Best of luck to all the girls who are looking to add the championship to the league title they won earlier in the year. Last weekend saw our intermediate team bow out of the championship after losing to Crecora in the semi-final. This was a great effort by a brilliant bunch of girls who put in a lot of time and dedication to reach the semi-final stage. Thanks to Alan and Bill who came on board this year and did Trojan work. Soon we will see our U13s and minor teams back in championship action. Be sure to get out and support our U16s as they bid to bring an A title back to the club.


Murroe AFC Notes. Tickets for the new soccer draw available from any club member.
