Our fabulous minor team captured the championship title on Sunday last to add to the league crown won earlier in the year, when we held on by a single point to defeat Carrick Sarsfields/St Dominics after a nail-biting contest. This is our second year in a row to capture the league and championship titles and is a remarkable achievement. Well done to the entire team but particularly the management of Thomas Donohoe, Gary Fenlon, Paul O Hara and Daniel Mimnagh on making this happen.
Next Sunday our under 20 team contest the championship final in this competitions inaugural year. We face an amalgamation from our neighbours Edgeworthstown and Clonbroney. Throw in is at 12 midday in Pearse Park. Best wishes to all involved.
