Well done to the U14 girls who have sailed into the quarter finals of the division 4 league with wins over Volunteers, Bannow/Ballymitty, St Mary's Maudlintown and Cushinstown. Also it looks like the U12 girls will make it through to the quarter finals as they have overcome St Mary's Maudlintown, Clongeen and recently had a great win over Geraldine O Hanrahans with a great display of football shown and team spirit. The U12 girls are out this Saturday against Bannow/Ballymitty at 11.00 at an away game, best of luck girls and keep up the good work.
