Harvest fest goes down well

A great day and evening was had in the clubhouse on Sunday last in honour of the Creggs Harvest Festival and the local community.

  The First and Second teams trained early on Sunday afternoon and there was a great gathering in the bar for the World Cup Semi-Final.

 The evening was equally as good and a great time was had by all. The clubhouse opened again on the Bank Holiday Monday for the conclusion of the long-running festival.

 

Congratulations to the St. Ciaran’s minor team

Congratulations to St. Ciaran’s GAA minor squad on winning the Connaughton Fuels Minor Division One League Final with a big win over St. Brigid’s last Sunday.

U-15’s: Creggs10 Corinthians RFC 24

A very under strength Creggs U-15’s team had a very good workout last Sunday morning against Corinthians in the U-15 League and were very lucky to be on the wrong end of a 24-10 defeat. Short seven regulars, the Creggs scores came from Jack Tucker and a conversion and penalty from Mark Purcell.

  Creggs finished the last ten minutes on the Corinthians line and only for some fine defending the score-line would have been much closer. There were great performances on the day for Eric O Doherty, Thomas O Brien, John McDonnell, Aodha Hession and Ciaran Neil Smith.  There is no U-15 game this coming weekend. New players always very welcome.

U-16’s travel to Castlebar next Sunday for a Connacht League game. Time and Date for the game have yet to be fixed. The U-16’s have two wins in their opening two league games and this will be a tough test next weekend to keep that run going.

  Training Friday night at 8 pm in Creggs. Training continues Friday at 7 pm in Creggs. New players always very welcome.

U-17’s will play Corinthians RFC in their Connacht League fixture this Wednesday at 6.30 pm in Galway. This is the U-17’s first league game of the season.
