Murroe AFC Notes: Team News: The men’s teams didn’t have any fixtures last weekend, (We’re sure they all took advantage of the week off to do some Christmas shopping!) All attention was on the U-13 Boys then who won their league after a fine 3-0 triumph over Galbally with goals from Joe Shanahan, David Moloney, and Billy Twomey, and a penalty save from Jamie Kirby. They are now promoted back to the Premier Division for next year! Well done to all the boys on a fantastic season and coach Allen O’Shaughnessy. Check out our Facebook page for the latest fixtures and results. Murroe AFC’s book “Murroe AFC The First 50 Years 1968-2018”is still available to purchase at Spar, and English’s. The book is a fabulous record of the story of the first 50 years of soccer in Murroe and is available at a price of €15. A great stocking filler!
