ARAGLEN DESMONDS U14S
Araglen Desmond's season has drawn to a close and they ended the year on a high with the U14 girls victorious in the North Cork Final, beating Glanworth 38 to 3-3.
This game was played in very harsh, wintry conditions on November 1, and great credit is due to all the players, and their trainers Denis Breen, Declan Cremin and Niall Collins.
This was a remarkable achievement, considering that this team was only formed in April of this year, so well done to all!
