Last Sunday morning at the Glebe the first round of the 4 week U-8 mini league took place. All players and teams performed very well and it was great to see so many parents attending the training.

Well done to Paddy Page who played for the Donegal U-15 hurlers last weekend in Carrick on Shannon where they were runners up in the All Ireland ‘c’ competition.
