JUVENILE COUNTY FINAL
Congratulations to the under 12 footballers who brought county silverware back to the parish as they defeated a talented Clonmel Commercials side last Saturday in Templetouhy. On a blustery day they battled hard but were behind at the break but a strong second half surge saw them build up a lead they were able to hold onto and become county champions. This is further proof of the great work being put into our underage structures by many people.
