SENIORS
There was a disappointing end to the senior championship with defeat to St. Eunan's in the final.
Recently the senior side represented the county in the Kilmacud Crokes 7-a-side and were very unfortunate to lose out on qualifying for the final stages, going through their section unbeaten. Thanks is extended to the management and panel who have been training since January.

CAMOGIE
The highlight of the Camogie was the feile team again winning the Co. title and representing the county at national level in the All-Ireland Feile in Wexford.
The U-10 team were the surprise package capturing the Co. Championship for the second year in a row. Th Agnes O Neill Cup Tournament and the club coaching week were also very successful.
The club fielded teams at U-10, 12, 14, 16 and Senior level.
On a final note the club lost one of its finest former players with the death of Maureen Timoney. May she rest in peace.
