In the North Board Minor Semi-Final it finished Claregalway 2-5 to Monivea Abbey 0-9. Congrats lads and mentors. It was a tense game but ye did it.

The U14 Ladies Gold team play Clonbur Ladies in the 1st round of the Championship on Saturday 8th in Knockdoemore with the throw in at 4.00pm .and the U14 Green team will start their campaign away to Corofin Ladies on Monday 10th October  in the main pitch in Corofin with a throw in of 7pm. Hard luck to Our U16 Girls who lost out to a fine Tuam/Cortoon side in the U16A County final on Sunday Evening in Barnadearg. The Girls were very disappointed after a couple of great wins over Dunmore and Corofin on the way to the Final but it was a great achievement to get to the County final after a very poor league campaign. Well done Girls and we hope to see you all back next year. Best of Luck to the U12 Ladies in the County Final which is scheduled for next Weekend

Currently, Lakeview pitch is being heavily used by the Club and school and on top of the recent wet weather the pitch is cutting up badly. Also some coaches insist on doing drills on the main pitch despite the fact that the small pitch is available for this type of training. We would hope that coaches would adhere to the following guidelines;

  • No drills on main pitch – use the small pitch only.

  • No pre-match or pre-training warm-ups on main pitch – use the small pitch only.

  • Use the main pitch for game training and matches only. Coaches to use their discretion regarding the condition of the main pitch for training – if it is not suitable for play, change your training plan and use the small pitch.

  • If the condition of the pitch continues to deteriorate we will have to close it. Your co-operation would be appreciated.

  • Thanks for your cooperation

Please note that when you book Cairde Mor, Knockdoemore Park or Lakeview for any use be it training or matches or a Blitz, you are responsible for the cleaning up of same. Please leave the club house and pitch as you would expect to find it. This includes sweep up rooms / toilets /kitchen; Leave kitchen tidy; Ensure that flags are brought in before you leave;
Lock up and close gates at the end of the evening; Take all black bag /rubbish away with you;
Encourage your teams to help with this, as many hands make light work. Many thanks for your co-operation.
