Graignamanagh won the U-13 roinn 'C' league after a titanic struggle against St Patrick's, Ballyragget. It took extra time in the replay to separate these two very evenly matched teams. Graignamanagh looked likely to run out winners in normal time when they ran up a four point lead with 3 mins left but the northeners finished strongly and a late goal and point ensured the game went to extra time. A goal by Graignamanagh sub Mike Hoban in the first half proved to to be the crucial score of the extra time as the Barrowsiders ran out winners after a thriller on a scoreline of Graignamanagh 1-17 to St Patricks 3-9.
Dicksboro captured the first ever U-15 Duggan Steel Roinn A Hurling Championship final where a dazzzling display of attacking hurling saw them overcome a plucky Thomastown side at a well appointed Danesfort. Click below for full match report and photos.
Congratulations to Kilmacow GAA Club who claimed the Féile division seven shield title at the weekend. The Kilmacow boys beat Clonas from Monaghan in the group stage and then went on to beat Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath in the Quarter Finals, Saval, Co. Down in the semi finals and beat Glouchestershire in the final. It is the clubs first National Féile title at either code. Well done lads on a wonderful achievement.
All U-13 Football Championships were completed within the last few days, with Dicksboro claiming the 'A' title, Graigue-Ballycallan were victorious in the 'B' and Kilmaganny took the honours in 'C'. All grades were extremely competitive with an excellent level of skill, commitment and dedication shown by all. A huge thanks to all club coaches and parents who provide their time so freely. We look forward to the U-15 and U-17 competitions later in the year. Click here for pictures. (Credit:Willie Dempsey)
