Our National Automation Limited U21s suffered a disappointing defeat to Clan na Gael in the Division 1 County Final in Enfield on Sunday. The performance doesn’t truly reflect the quality of this panel of players who had great performances en-route to the final. Congratulations to Clan on their success. Thanks to the lads for their commitment throughout the season and to Manager Aidan Lavin and his assistants. Thanks to Ciaran Phelan (National Automation Limited) for their ongoing sponsorship and for covering the meal for the panel after the final.
The Garda Cup final had to be postponed again on Saturday last-this time because of snow. No new date has been determined. Congratulations to Boyle native Seamus Sweeney on his elevation to the Chairmanship of Roscommon County Board GAA. We wish him and the incoming County Board every success.
