This Saturday our u14 football team travel to Killavullen to kick start the playing season when they play the locals with a 2pm kick off. This squad will hopefully continue their good form they showed at the end of last year when they captured the u13 D football league title defeating Boherbue in the semifinal and Castletownroche in a dramatic final. We will be looking to players like Muris, Aidan, Josh, Jordan and Jake O’Regan to put in a good performance against Killavullen.


U14 football training continues every Tuesday night under light in the gaa training ground and next Tuesday night the u12s will also be football training from 7-8pm. Parents will receive a text with details from club trainers.

Membership for 2015 must be paid before any child train’s or plays to be covered by insurance, this is according to national gaa rules. This years it’s €20 per child or adult and €50 per family.

A big congratulations must go to the Shanballymore National Schools girls indoor hurling team who last Friday came runners up in the competition held in Nagle Rice Doneraile. The girls played three tough game against Dromina, Ballyhooly and Geal scoil de hide Fermoy winning two and narrowly lost one to out right winners Dromina, they put in a great effort and well done to all involved. Next Wednesday the 11th it’s the turn of the boys when they take to the nagle rice indoor court and hopefully all the practice over the last few weeks will pay off.
