Sympathy of the club is extended to the O Hara Family on the death of John O Hara Ballysundriven, Elphin. Our thoughts are with you at this time.
1st county title came to the parish for 2020 via our u16 ladies in the Div 1B championship when they beat Boyle in Boyle on Tuesday last. A thriller of a game saw them get on top in the final quarter and stay there till the final whistle. Massive congratulations to Charlie and his back room team and to the girls themselves for a skilful display of wonderful football. Commiserations go to our gallant U14 girls they lost to Roscommon Gaels on Thursday last in the County final which was played in Roscommon. A huge achievement for all involved and it proves that the future of our club is in safe hands with these young talented players.
Well done to Leone and Co and to the U12 girls who have reached the County final which will be played in Croghan on Sunday next 13th September at 5pm.
They had a terrific semi final in Storkestown on Sunday last which went ot extra time twice. They lost by 1 point in the end but they still qualify for the final.
Our Senior ladies made history on Sunday morning in Croghan. They defeated Clan na nGael in the county semi final and will now meet Kilbride in the final on 19th September at a venue to be confirmed.
It is the first time in 55 years that Shannon Gaels has been in a Senior County Final and the first time for a ladies team to do it.
