Murroe/Boher Camogie Club: Well done to Ciara Oliver, Orlaith Hickey, Sarah Jane Flynn and Sophie Quaid and the Ahane-Murroe/Boher team who are into a county U14 final. The girls had a tight, 3 point, win over Na Piarsaigh in the semi-final. The final takes place on Tuesday with time and venue TBC. Hard luck to our intermediate team who lost to Ballyagran last weekend. This Saturday the girls play at 5pm in Boher in a must win game to qualify for a semi-final spot, which take place next weekend. Hard luck to our U16 team who narrowly lost out to Mungret/St. Pauls in the shield semi-final, this brings an end to their year. Next weekend sees our club host teams from Tipperary and Limerick for an U11 tournament in memory of Johnny O’Brien on Saturday 29th September from 11am – 2pm in Boher. Also, on the day our U7 team will play Newport and our U9 team will play Treaty Gaels from 10am. All support and help is greatly appreciated, please contact a member of our committee if you would like to help out.

Murroe AFC Notes: Team news: The A team were fixed to play Glenview Rovers in the first round of the FAI Junior Cup last Sunday, but Glenview couldn’t field a team for the game, so a walkover was the result there. As it was the FAI Junior Cup, the B team and C team had no fixtures. This week its Munster Junior Cup time, the A team are fixed to play Caherconlish in the first round. The C team are also fixed to play Newport Town C team on Sunday afternoon in Tubber. Keep an eye on the club’s Facebook Page for up to date 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. Now that the nights are getting longer and you’ll be settling in by the fire, you’ll need a good read!
