Under 21 Football
Our U21 footballers are out of the championship having gone down to Cahir on Sat.in their second game. One good thing to emerge from the game was the fine display of Eoin Fennelly who was back in action following a recent injury.
Our Ladies U16 team was in action in Mullinahone on Sun. morning. The team was unable to field at full strength due to defections and as a result went down to Lattin –Cullen. It is hoped that the team will be stronger the next day and will produce a better result.
Now that Lent is here, we will have Lenten devotions each Sunday evening at 7pm in St. Michael’s Church consisting of Stations of the Cross and Benediction. These devotions will continue for the duration of Lent. Condolences to the extended Crotty family, The Square on the death of Tom Crotty at the age of 84.
