Camogie blitz 

Well done to all our 1st and 2nd year camogie players and management who won the shield final in a camogie blitz held in St. Cronan’s Park in Roscrea on Monday 20th December. Coláiste Phobal, Borrisoleigh and Cahir each fielded 2 teams each and a great day of matches was had. Thanks to all for their efforts organising and running the day.
