Congratulations to our Junior B team on winning the B Championship in Cloone on
Friday night last. In a somewhat low
scoring encounter we grabbed a decisive goal in the first half. This proved the key score that kept us in
front throughout the game. The final score being 1-4 to 0-6. It
was a good way to finish off the year and
it was great to see a large number of our younger players getting their
taste of success at adult level and the few older heads also proved the
that there is life left in the old dogs yet. Congratulations also to
trainers Pat Tighe and Brian Foley on a job well done and to Johnny Mc
Govern who was named man of the match.
seniors are fixed to play an important division 1 league fixture at home in Kiltubrid
versus Aughawillian at 12.00 noon on Sunday next 6th October.

For any of our cyclists in the club, our neighbours in the Leitrim Cycle Club
are running their annual Tour De Breffni Cycle charity event this coming Sunday morning. There are
three routes which start from the Leitrim Gaels facility. The 100 km
& 140 km routes start at 9 am while the shorter 60 km route around Lough
Allen starts at 10 am. Registration is from 7:45 am. This is always a worthwile
and well run event and there is a route to suit all levels and the views and
surroundings alone are well worth the effort.
Well done to our neighbours St Marys on a deserved victory in the county final
last Sunday. Our other neighbours Mohill
may feel a bit disappointed in defeat; however they had a fine win in the minor
final beforehand as part of the St Manachans outfit.
