Best of luck to 1st year football squad who play Portmarnock today in their second match. They were narrowly beaten by Skerries in thir first match losing by just 3 points, so today is a must win for the lads!

Under 14 Gaelic Footballers lost out in their final against St. Joseph's Rush. A superb 2nd half effort saw the Bros get to within 2 points of St Joseph's but in an attempt to find those elusive scores, they left themselves open to counterattack and were hit by sucker scores to lose out by 7 points in the end! Hard luck lads! A fantastic season lads, so hold your heads up high!
