The Club won more silverware at the weekend when our U13s had a 4-05 to 2 -05 win over St Brigids in the County Final of the Féile competition. This is a great achievement for the boys and their management team of Gerry Cregg, Odran Feely and Evan McGrath. This means that they will be the Co Roscommon football representatives at 2016 Féile which will be hosted by Tipperary and Waterford County Boards. No doubt there will be a lot of on-field and off-field preparations required for this event.
The U 14s, which will include many of the victorious U13 panel, will play their Garda Cup semi final against Castlerea on Sunday week 22nd in O’Rourke Park at 12 noon.
The U20s have got a walkover in the first round of their competition. They are now straight into the semi final where the likely opposition will be Padraig Pearses.
The U21s will play their County A semi final against St Brigids next weekend - Details TBC. The club asks all supporters to get behind the team.
