Camogie Notes – 4 February 2016

This Friday evening (Feb 5th) our AGM takes place in the GAA Club Rooms at 8.30pm. It is very important that we have a good attendance of players, officers and parents in order to help us plan for the year ahead.

Congratulations to Rachel Leonard, Leah Magennis and Kayla McCann who participated in the U-8/U-10 Camogie Blitz in Castleblayney on Saturday last. Unfortunately, this event coincided with the commencement of Community Games swimming lessons which involved quite a number of our younger members. However, there will be other little Blitzes coming up which will be at a more suitable time. For Leah it was a very busy camogie weekend as she, along with Catherine Walsh and Ria McCann, participated in the exhibition match during half time at the All-Ireland Club Championship semi-final, between Killimor (Galway) and Loughgiel (Antrim), in St Tiernach’s Park Clones. Congratulations to these great little players and thanks to the parents who provided practical assistance.

There was a very good representation of our players at county minor training in Cloghan on Saturday afternoon last – despite the atrocious weather conditions. On Thursday evening the panel will train indoors, in Clontibret Community Centre, at 7.00pm sharp. Outdoor training will take place again on Saturday in Cloghan.

A reminder to anyone interested in purchasing a ticket for the GAA National Club Draw 2016, please contact me asap as the ‘closing’ date for returning tickets is Sunday, Feb 7th.

On Monday night the monthly County Board meeting takes place in the Glencarn Hotel at 8.00pm. It is important that the club is represented as events relating to the club will be decided upon and without club representatives, our input is limited.

Two very important dates in February are Sat Feb 20th when we host an U-12/U-14 Indoor Blitz at 3.00pm in the Community Centre. Much help will be required to ensure the smooth running of the event, so don’t be shy!!

On the following Thursday (Feb 25), Clare Dowdall, Regional Development Officer for Monaghan and surrounding counties, will facilitate a workshop geared towards parents, Gaisce students, senior players and anyone else who might be interested in coaching the basic skills of the game to beginners. The course takes place in the Community Centre and will commence at 7.30pm. This will be very practical with lots of little skills and drills. No previous experience as either a player or coach is necessary. Again, don’t be shy!!!!

Sporting event to Commemorate 1916: On Saturday 2nd April in Cloghan GAA Grounds the Comhairle na nÓg Committee, in partnership with the Mens and Ladies Co Board and the Ladies Camogie, will host a fun and interactive event aimed at 14-16 year olds from across the County. The afternoon will consist of the young people participating in an informative and entertaining history and sporting table quiz. Following this, participants will compete in an exciting Clubs Challenge in their preferred sport. Never before have various different disciplines played and competed side by side. Not only will young people who attend reflect on the full richness of our history but also appreciate the diversity that exists within our own County. Any club members interested in participating in this novel event, which is limited to 6 from our club, please let me know asap as an application form must soon be completed.

Senior training continues on Friday evening at 7.00pm. Please note a temporary change in time for the U-14/16 training on Thursday evenings in the Community Centre. Normally this session commences at 6.30pm but for the next 3 weeks it will start at 6.00pm to facilitate county minor training. All parents will receive a text message later in the week.

A huge ‘congratulations’ to Clare and Cormac on becoming proud parents on Friday evening last, when Baby Philip Michael arrived into the world. Wishing you both much happiness and joy with your new baby.

Camogie Notes – 17 December 2015

With the countdown to Christmas seriously underway, that means the countdown to our annual Christmas Draw is also on. And to mark the occasion all our members, players (young and not-so-young!) and their parents are invited to a Christmas get-together in the GAA Club Rooms on Friday (Dec 18) where food will be served from 8.30pm. It is envisaged that the Draw will take place around 9.30pm followed by the presentation of the Armagh Division 1 League cup and medals to our senior players. Our ‘Senior Player of the Year 2015’ will also be announced. So why not join us for a few relaxed hours of good food, good drink and good company!

All cards for the Draw must be returned by Wednesday either to Scoil Mhuire or to senior players: Aisling Greenan, Michelle Morgan, Aideen Greene, Nicola Morgan or Club Chairman Macartan.

With the usual array of terrific prizes on offer including €200 cash, a half-day pampering package in the Farnham Hotel Cavan, Christmas hampers, vouchers for Chic Hair and Beauty, Charlie’s Meats and the Westenra Arms Hotel, Christmas Cakes, Christmas beverages(!) and much, much more, there really is ‘one for everyone in the audience’ – almost!!! We also have a prize for the club member in either primary or secondary school who sells the most lines. So make sure you are in the Club rooms on Friday night where it will all be happening!
A meeting of the Club Executive and senior players will take place on Wednesday evening at 8.00pm in the Club Rooms to finalise preparations for Friday night.

Finally, best wishes to Mary who is on a wee ‘sojourn’ with her medical friends in Dublin – no doubt you’ll be back home shortly and in the ‘thick of things’ for Christmas, Mary!

Camogie Notes – 10 December 2015

Raffle cards for our annual fundraiser have been distributed and already full cards are being returned with some looking for a second card! This is the club’s main fundraiser each year and is extremely well supported given the fact that €2 can secure any one of a number of fabulous prizes, from €200 cash to a pampering half-day in the Farnham Hotel, Cavan! Not to mention the many wonderful food hampers, cakes, ‘beverages’ and vouchers for a meal, meat and Dunnes stores produce. So if you haven’t yet purchased a few lines do so immediately as the draw takes place on the weekend of Dec 18/19. Details of time and venue will be announced in next week’s notes. Also if anyone would like a card (or even a 2nd card!) please notify me. Remember there is also a special sellers prize for our school- going members who collect the most money!

While it may seem incredible that any camogie could be played last weekend, the AIB Ulster Intermediate championship final took place between Eglish (Tyrone) and Glen (Derry) at the Loup GAA grounds, in very pleasant conditions, on Sunday afternoon. Eglish were comprehensive winners on a scoreline of 5-14 to 2-05, and thereby avenged their defeat in the 2014 final! They will play the All-Ireland semi-final on Jan 31st.
Training for our second level players and those in 6th class, takes place each Thursday from 6.30 – 7.30 in the Community Center. New or ‘lapsed’ members welcome to participate!!!

Congratulations to one of our senior stars Sinéad Mohan, who celebrated her 18th birthday last week. Hope you had a wonderful celebration, Sinéad.

Finally, a huge thank-you to everyone who supported the fundraiser, either by donating money or purchasing tickets, for a genes sequencing machine for the Oncology Department of Our Lady’s Hospital Drogheda. A cheque totalling €22,120 was presented to the staff recently for which they were deeply grateful.

Camogie Notes – 3 December 2015

Yes, folks, its that time of year again when we turn our attention to fund-raising and, more specifically our Annual Christmas Draw. Now in its 12th year, this draw continues to go from strength to strength with terrific prizes for the ridiculous sum of €2.

And the 2015 Draw promises to be bigger and better than ever with a first prize of €200!! A nice little windfall a week before Christmas. And what nicer way to de-stress after Christmas than with a half-day of pampering with your soul mate in the Farnham Hotel Cavan? I bet you would have no bother making it a full day, though. To enhance your image before Christmas, a voucher for Shauna Finnegan’s upmarket salon – Chic Hair and Beauty – would ‘hit the spot’! And in case you feel you haven’t enough provisions for Christmas, Linwoods, Middletown, are providing a tasty food hamper while some succulent steaks and meats come courtesy of a voucher for Charlies Meats. There is also the festive Christmas cake, biscuits, chocolates, sweets, bottles of wine and whisky. And if the prospect of cooking and washing up doesn’t appeal to you, we’ve even got a meal voucher sponsored by the Westenra Arms Hotel! Talk about something for everyone in the audience!!! The Draw will take place on Fri Dec 19 and sellers are asked to return their cards by Wed Dec 17. A special prize will be awarded for the primary or second level student who sells the most cards.

Congratulations to a number of our members who undertook Child Protection training recently on behalf of the club. These include: Macartan Kieran, Nicola Morgan, Aisling Greenan, Aideen Greene, Catherine Greenan, Michelle Morgan and Olivia Moran. This brings to 10 the number of senior members who are trained and vetted to work with players U-18 years of age.

In recent weeks Gerard Gribben stepped down as a Regional Development Officer for the Camogie Association after 8 years in the job. Lisa McAlliskey, RDO for Monaghan, Cavan etc has returned to college to train as a PE teacher and Clare Dowdall has taken her place. We wish Clare the very best in her new role and hope that her years of working with Dublin GAA will stand her in good stead!

Training for all second-level players continues each Thursday evening from 6.30 – 7.30pm in Clontibret Community Centre. New members welcome. After Christmas it is hoped to get training for our younger members underway again.
And finally, wonderful news in relation to Mary, this past week – Mary has officially been discharged from the ongoing care of St James’ Hospital, Dublin, and is permanently back in the bosom of her family!! Well done Mary – there is no doubt your indomitable spirit in no small way helped in the long journey of your recovery. And while we are not going to rush you back on to the playing pitches just yet, I would bet that a few outings to Switch and similar establishments are on the cards for Christmas? Enjoy every minute of your new-found freedom!!

Camogie Notes – 12 November 2015

With the playing season concluded, the time has come to focus on planning and fundraising. A meting will be held on Friday evening (Nov 13) in the Club Rooms at 8.00pm sharp to complete the nomination forms for the Annual County Convention and to discuss the annual club fund-raiser. All ideas – new and old – welcome! Even more welcome are parents and senior club members.

Ulster Council host their Annual Awards lunch in Kelly’s Inn Tyrone on Saturday, Nov 21, at 12 noon. At this event awards are presented to Senior, Junior, Minor Players of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, PRO of the Year and the Chairpersons Award. Last year our own Marie was the recipient of the Administrator of the Year 2014. Monaghan Board will be putting forward nominations later this week.

Loughgiel, the Ulster Junior champions, suffered a heavy defeat to Athleague (Roscommon) in the AIB Junior Club Championship All-Ireland semi-final, on Sunday. Meanwhile Slaughtneil, Derry, retained the Ulster Senior League title when they defeated Liatroim Fontenoys, Down, in stormy conditions in Eglish Tyrone.

Indoor training for all second level school members will commence on Thursday evening, 6.30 – 7.30pm, in the Community Centre. Please ensure your daughter has suitable footwear, brings her own hurl, helmet and €1 towards the use of the Centre. Also, volunteers are required to assist with the training of underage players and to introduce a Beginners group to the game.

Which leads to a final reminder regarding the Child Protection courses being run in the coming weeks – Wednesday Nov 18 and 25, in Cloghan. As outlined previously, it is only necessary to attend one evening. Final numbers must be known by this Wednesday (Nov 11). All Executive members, coaches and parents transporting or in close contact with underage/minor players must have this course completed under new legislation being enacted this month.

Commiserations to O Neill Shamrocks who were defeated by Steelstown in the Ulster Junior final on Sunday. However, the flame still burns as O Neill Shamrock minors play the same opposition this coming Sunday in the Ulster Minor championship. We wish them well.

Finally, congratulations to Conor McManus on being awarded a second All-Star last weekend. A wonderful honour for him personally, his family and the club.

Camogie Notes – 5 November 2015

Important news this week in relation to two important courses taking place shortly under the auspices of Monaghan GAA, relating to Child Protection. A choice of two dates is offered, in Cloghan:

Wed November 18 from 7- 10pm
Wed November 25 from 7 – 10pm

It is only necessary to attend one of these evening events. The cost for the course is €10. As previously stated Child Protection is a legal requirement for all Executive members, those coaching teams where minors are involved, those transporting or having any direct contact with minor/underage players/members. The course only needs to be completed once every 3 years. Please indicate as soon as possible which night you wish to attend as the course is being offered to all codes therefore places will fill up rapidly.
The second event, Monaghan GAA Coaching Conference, takes place this Saturday, November 7, in Our Lady’s Castleblayney. Places on the Conference are filling up fast, but those wishing to attend can fill out the application form and get it into the Monaghan Coaching Office by Wednesday. The application form is downloadable from Monaghan GAA website. (Coaching and Development link)

The conference is targeting all club coaches from Juvenile to senior level and anybody with an interest in coaching and promoting Gaelic Games. The cost is €15 per person or €50 for a group 4. This year the theme of the conference is “Successful clubs – by chance or by design” so all the workshops and presentations will have a relevance to developing our clubs and club coaches. This year’s conference will be both practical and theory based, some will have a focus on football or hurling/camogie only but the majority of the workshops/presentations can be transferable across both codes.

To name but a few, the presenters include; Diarmaid Marsden (Club Coaching and Games Development Officer Ulster GAA), Oisin McConville (former Crossmaglen and Armagh senior player), Micheal Glover (Ulster Regional Development Hurling Officer) and Ryan Porter (Monaghan Senior Team Coach).
There will also be a Question & Answers session at the end of the conference which will involve County Senior Manager Malachy O’Rourke, County Senior Footballers Dick Clerkin and Conor McManus, former All Star Eugene ‘Nudie’ Hughes, County Hurling Manager Trevor Hilliard and County Senior Hurler Pauric Dowdall.

A more convivial event, and hopefully one with a better gender balance, is the forthcoming Annual Ulster Camogie Awards Lunch which takes place on Saturday 21st November in Kelly’s Inn Garvaghey, Co Tyrone, from 12.00 noon. Each club has received nomination forms seeking nominations for Ulster senior, junior and minor player along with administrator, coach/manager, PRO and volunteer awards. These must be returned to the Ulster Administrator by this Friday, so thinking caps on folks!!

A Club meeting will be held in the coming weeks to complete Monaghan Camogie Convention (Mon Nov 23) forms and plan our annual Christmas draw.

Finally, every good wish to O Neill Shamrocks who play the Derry champions, Steelstown, in the Ulster Junior Club championship final on Sunday coming, Nov 8, in Killyclogher (Tyrone) at 1pm. This is a curtain-raiser to the Intermediate final between Donaghmoyne (B) and Glenelly (Tyrone) at 2.30.

Camogie Notes – 29 October 2015

With the camogie playing season virtually in hibernation at the moment – only one final left to play in Ulster- there is no need for attachments this week!!!

Pride of place thiough goes to Joanne and John on the birth of their precious daughter, Hannah Patricia, who arrived into the world in the early hours of Saturday morning. Thankfully Mum and Baby Hannah are doing well – and John is making a good recovery as well!!

Congratulations from all the club, Joanne and John, and thanks for doing your bit to ensure camogie in Clontibret (yes John, Clontibret!!) continues to thrive!

Congratulations also to O Neill Shamrock´s who captured the Ulster Junior Ladies football championship title on Sunday last when they defeated Steelstown of Derry. This is a wonderful achievement for O Neill Shamrock´s considering it was their first appearance in an Ulster final.

A reminder that on Saturday, Nov 7, Aidan Kelly assisted by other provincial coaches, will facilitate a coaching development day in Cloghan, beginning at 11.00 am. This will be tailored to suit the needs of the particiapnts, so if you are interested in attending, it is important that you indicate this weis week what particular area of your game you would like to work on – for example, defensive play, attacking skills, goalkeeping skills etc.

Keep in mind the Monaghan Camogie Board´s Annual Convention, which will take place in Cloghan on Mon Nov 23 at 8.00pm sharp. Remeber the club must be represented by two delegates, who are not Officers of the Board – so get your name down quickly!!!

Camogie Notes – 22 October 2015

Loughgiel (Antrim) were crowned the AIBUlster Junior champions on Sunday on a score-line of: Loughgiel (Antrim) 1-08 Lacken (Cavan) 2-04 Although Lacken, as defending Ulster champions, entered the fray as firm favourites, Loughgiel got off to a blistering start and had registered 1-02 before Lacken got their second wind! However, enter Roisin O Keefe (otherwise known as Miss O Keefe, in Our Lady’s Secondary School Castleblayney) and suddenly the gap was reduced to two points. Lacken added another point and the game really came alive. O Keefe continued to torture the Loughgiel defence and was directly responsible for another Lacken goal followed by a point. Just before half time both teams traded points leaving Lacken ahead by a goal at the break: Lacken 2-03 Loughgiel 1-03.

From the re-start however it was Loughgiel who asserted themselves and scored three points without reply, bringing the teams level. Under severe pressure in defence, Lacken took the unusual step of moving Roisin O Keefe to half-back along with Miranda McIntyre and Aoife Brady. And while this was effective as a defensive tactic, it also left the Lacken attack lacking O Keefe’s dynamism. In fact, with 10 minutes to go Lacken still hadn’t raised a flag! However, with mere minutes remaining, an all-important point pushed their noses marginally ahead, and sent the pulses of the spectators racing. But Loughgiel quickly replied to level matters again. Deep in injury time a clearance from the Lacken defence found Loughgiel’s CiaraDobbin virtually unmarked. Cool as a breeze,she slotted the sliotar over the black spot thereby sealing the fate of the Ulster Junior Championship for 2015.

For Roisisn O’ Keefe there was the consolation of being awarded ‘Player of the Match’ a tribute to the role she has played, not just in this final, but in the competition overall.

In the Bridie McMenamin Shield final, Cargin of Antrim had a runaway victory over Longstone (Down) on a score-line of Cargin 6-08, Longstone 0-11 Second level schools Blitz.

Fifty-eight first, second and third year girls took part in the first of this yearssecond level school blitzes, played in Cloghan on Wednesday last. Girls from St Louis Convent Monaghan, Castleblayney College, St Louis Convent Carrickmacross and Inver College Carrickmacross participated. Congratulations to our own club members who were involved and thanks to Clare Dowdall, Regional Development Officer, and Aidan Kelly, Hurling Development Officer in Monaghan for organising the event. Thanks also to the staff of the various schools for accompanying the teams. Again I would appeal to our club members to involve themselves in camogie training sessions being organised by the staff in their schools. Club training.

Indoor training will commence after the mid-term break for many of our under-age members. As per last year, the Community Centre has been booked for 2 sessions each Thursday –5.30pm to 6.30pm for our younger members and 6.30pm to 7.30pm for the second level school girls. A message will be sent to all parents in the coming week.

It was wonderful to have the opportunity to visit Mary on Friday last in St James’s Haematology Unit, prior to her being discharged to the ‘apartment’ overnight. As always, Mary was the height of fashion, virus or no virus, and in great form. Hopefully her stays in the ‘apartment’ will be extended again and before too long it will be the ‘apartment’ in Clontibret she’ll be returning to! Keep up the tremendous work, Mary, and remember when you reach Day 100 you will really have cause to celebrate!!

Finally, a huge thank you to all those who have supported Seamus McMahon’s forthcoming fundraiser, on Thurs Oct 29 in the Four Seasons Hotel Monaghan. The event is to raise money for a gene sequencing machine for the Oncology Unit of Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda. While all 500tickets are sold, a limited number of seats may still be available for anyone who missed out on a ticket. Once again, thanks to everyone for their support!

Camogie Notes – 15 October 2015

With the playing season ticking towards closure, although the weatherismore beautiful than it was
in the summer, our attention turns to meetings/Annual Convention and planning for next year!
Recently,representatives from each of the Monaghan clubs met with Clare Dowdall,the newlyappointed
RDO,to discussthe development of the game in the county. A number of initiatives were
discussed including Blitz days for primary and secondary schools and a one-off blitz day for senior
teams at the start of 2016. The first of the blitz days for second-level schools takes place tomorrow
(Wed) is Cloghan and is for 1st, 2nd and 3rd year girls. So make sure your school is represented! With
camogie coaching now taking place in St Louis Convent, Monaghan, Our Lady’s Secondary School,
Castleblayney, Castleblayney College, St Louis Convent, Carrickmacross and St Patrick’s High School
Keady,many of our members should be availing of the opportunity to maintain their ‘first touch’ and
fitness levelsthroughout the winter. Please check with your school coach for times and venues of

Fund-raising was also to the fore at Monday’s County Board meeting, especially in relation to
acquiring a set of playing and coaching gear for our under-age county teams and any new clubs that
may come on-stream. Each club will receive 20 books of tickets in the coming weeks, towards
participation in an annual GAA Draw, at national level. Prizes apparently are quite amazing –cars,
holidays etc. More details next week, but it is imperative that each club commits to selling their
quotaof tickets, as the Board represents us all and cannot function without the necessary funding.
A Child Welfare course will also take place in the coming weeks and, as I reported previously, all
members of the Executive Committee and all coaches working with girls U-18 years are required to
attend this course and undertake Garda vetting. It is also highly recommended that parents who
normally transport children to matches should also complete the course, which is a 3 hour course,
held over one evening.

A reminder also that the Monaghan Camogie Annual Convention will take place on Monday, Nov 23
at 8.00pm. Each club is required to be represented by at least 2 delegates. Nomination papers,
reports etc will be forwarded to clubs in advance.

Last Sunday a group of us travelled to Lacken to watch the Castleblayney v Lacken UlsterJuniorClub
championship semi-final. On the day Castleblayney came up short on a score-line of 2-12 to 2-00. On
Sunday coming, Oct 18, both the Bridie McMenamin and the Ulster Junior championship finals will
take place in Ballymacnab, Co Armagh. Cargin (Antrim) and Longstone (Down) contest the former at
1.00pm while Lacken and Loughiel (Antrim) meet at 3.00pm.

Finally our thoughts and good wishes are extended to Mary who has had a couple of little set-backs
lately – though her transplant remains in fine working order. Hopefully the little infections will clear
up and rememberMary, every day is a day closer to a full recovery and being back home with your
family and friends!

Camogie Notes – 8 October 2015

Congratulations to the 10 underage players who participated in the Monaghan Blitz on Saturday last
in Clontibret. This was a very well attended blitz with almost 40 participantsfrom Clontibret,
Castleblayney, and Inniskeen. Initially the younger girls played small-sided games and the older girls
played a 20 minute aside 12-aside match. Well done to all involved in organising and helping, along
with Marie, and to Clontibret GAA club for use of their facilities. Castleblayney will host the final one
of these Blitzes in a few weeks time. So keep up the training girls!

Congratulations to Clontibret hurling club who are one of the lucky winners of a ‘Centra Dream Day
to Croke Park’ on Monday Oct 19th. The participating children will receive coaching, on the actual
pitch in Croke Park (!), by well-known inter-county hurlers, from 10.30 to 12.00. They then will have
opportunity to meet and get autographs and photos taken with their sporting heroes! After this they
will be treated to a lunch buffet in the Cusack Suite. This will be followed by a dizzying array of
activities –for U-8’s there will be Giant Games, for O-8’s, a Bungee Run. The children will then have a
behind-the-scenes Stadium tour, focusing on the history and culture of Gaelic games as well as the
historical significance of the stadiumitself. Finally the children will visit the Museum which houses
the artefacts that relate to the story of the GAA and they will also have the opportunity to test their
skills in the interactive games area of the museum. What a breath-taking prize!!! Well done Teresa +
Co. The good news isthat there are a small number of places available for some of our underage
camogie players. These, I imagine, will be carefully chosen and I suspect attendance at training,
attitude and participation in training, attendance and participation in the Monaghan, Monaghan
GAA and Armagh Blitzes, participation on the Monaghan County U-14 panel etc. will all form part of
the criterion. Perhaps the list is even longer! However parents will be informed in due course when
the lucky players have been chosen!

On Saturday last Monaghan were represented in a County U-15 Blitz in Trim Co Meath. With a very
limited panel, made up predominately of Castleblayney players, the team struggled against all their
opponents –Wicklow, Donegal and Roscommon. However, great credit is due to the girls who put
their heart and souls into the matches, none more so than our own two (yes, only two!)
representatives, Amy Gorman and Siobhan Kelly. Amy gave some outstanding displays and proved
herself a ‘thorn in the side’ of her opponents, no matter whether she was an attacker or defender.
Despite being the youngest on the team, Siobhan battled gamely in every match trying to make as
much use of the scraps of possession that came Monaghan’s way, in attack. Monaghan also
benefitted from the help Clíodhna Moran gave on the side-line. Clíodhna had been chosen for the
team, but picked up a wristinjury in school during the previous week. Nonethelessshe travelled
with the teamand was invaluable helping with water, first-aid etc. Many, many thanks Clíodhna for
unselfishly giving up your Saturday afternoon to help. Thanks also to Francis Haughey and Teresa
Lam who did a lot of the ‘heavy lifting’ over the course of the afternoon. I could get used to all this

Tonight (Tues) the monthly County Board meeting takes place in the Glencarn Hotel, Castleblayney,
starting at 7.30pm with a meeting with the new RDO Clare Dowdall. This is an opportunity for the
clubs to have their say in terms how they feel Ulster/Croke Park can help with the development of
the game in the county. Other items for discussion will include camogie in second-levelschools,
Child Welfare training, Annual Convention and a senior county team in 2016. So make sure and have

Best wishes to Castleblayney who play Cavan champions, Lacken, on Sunday in the first round of the
Ulster Junior camogie championship. Well done to O’Neill Shamrocks who defeated Drumgoon,
Cavan, in the ladies Juniorfootball championship last Sunday.

And finally, congratulations to Emma Treanor who celebrated her birthday recently!
