Well done to Sophie Quaid, Ciara Oliver and Sarah Jane Flynn who were part of the Ahane-Murroe/Boher U14 team who won the county final on Tuesday evening. Our girls played their part in what was a thrilling 3 point win, well done girls. Next weekend (6th October) sees our minor team take to the field again, after 2 wins in their first 2 games, the girls will be looking to build on a good start and great seasons with the intermediate and U16 teams. Best of luck to all our girls and please come out and support them.
