Under 8’S: The U8's hurling and football season finished last Thursday evening, with a match V the coaches and the 8’s enjoyed a very exciting win. Last Sunday we welcomed the current All Ireland Senior Hurling Club champions Cuala to Lacken Park for a hurling & football blitz. All our players put in fantastic performances, putting all the skills they learned during the year to good use on the field of play. 
Thank you to the parents and the players for their support and participation during a great year.
Mile Buiochas to manager Alfie O’ Brien and coaches Richie Ryan, Declan Carrig, Ger Gaffney, Ger O’ Donohoe, Thomas Ryan, Paraic Kennedy & John Berkery for giving of their time and energy all year.

Under 9s: We had a busy weekend playing Parteen in Lacken Park last Saturday morning and Cuala on Sunday morning in Lacken Park. Next Sunday we are off to Dublin to play in the Kilmacud tournament, which will involve teams from all over the country.

 

James O'Rourke Tournament: The annual James O'Rourke memorial Gaelic Football tournament was held in Lacken Park recently. On a wet and blustery day, a fine feast of football was served up by the participating teams.  The tournament consisted of an U-12 Cup and an U-11 Shield.  In the U-12 cup, there were four teams with Moyle Rovers, Monaleen, Ballina and Newport taking part. Despite the very blustery conditions a very competitive round robin series took place with Moyle Rovers and Monaleen qualifying for the final. Despite the conditions a competitive final took place with Moyle Rovers emerging as winners. In the U-11 Shield Ballinahinch, Sean Treacy’s and two Newport teams took part.  All teams played each other in the round robin stage of the tournament with both Newport teams coming out on top which resulted in the shield going to Newport.  Well done to all the teams for taking part in the tournament which again was a great success. Many thanks to all those who helped on the day and to the O'Rourke family for being present to present the trophies. 

Under 21: Best of luck to the players and their mentors in the North championship as they play Ballinahinch/Templederry in Dolla this Sunday at 12 noon.
