The boys and girls of Scoil Aodh Rua Agus Nuala and An Linbh Íosa Killymard played great football against Niall Mór Killyubegs, their own club mates, and a few St. Nauls players too! Well done to Mr McFadden and the Killymard boys on progressing to the next round.

Fixtures/Results

U14 Girls
Our U14 girls had their first outing of the season in a friendly vs Aodh Ruadh in Tir Chonaill Park on Tuesday evening. In a very competitive game, we witnessed some great scores from both teams. The game ebbed & flowed with both teams enjoying dominance at different stages. Four Masters rallied in the last few minutes to win the match by a small margin. Thanks to Aodh Ruadh for travelling up & playing such an entertaining game.
U13 Girls
Our U13 girls played out a thrilling draw in Tir Conall Park on a bank holiday Monday against a strong Robert Emmets team. Robert Emmets took control early with a good number of scores. Four masters battled well, tagging on 5 points in the first half. We were 3 points down at the break and an unbelievable 3rd quarter by the girls saw us take a 5 point lead into the last quarter. The girls had given everyrhing and a tenacious Rober Emmets team battled back to earn a well deserved draw. Great performance by both teams!
U8 Boys
Our under 8s made the trip to Glencolmcille last week to play Naomh Columba in the under 9 Go games. In beautiful sunshine, both teams played some excellent football so well done to all involved. Thanks to Naomh Columba for the warm welcome.

Hurling

Four Masters U7 and U9 teams had a great morning of hurling last Sunday, 1st May when they travelled to @aodhruadh Thanks to Aodh Ruadh for hosting us and thanks to our parents and players for travelling.
