Murroe Boher Camogie: Hard luck to our U16 team who were beaten in their A final. The heart-breaking defeat came at the hands of Newcastle West who our girls beat in the league final to bring back the only piece of silverware our club has so far. We are so proud of the girls and we are looking forward to seeing the girls improve as they move up the age groups. Next weekend sees our minor team back in action, this time against Patrickswell at 12pm on Sunday (16th October) at home. This will be the girl’s second outing following their win over Monaleen in August. Please get out to support our girls.
