Our Under 15 footballers took part in this year’s Feile Peil on a scorching Saturday afternoon. The competition opened on a positive note as the boys beat the favorites Ardfinnan in our first match by four points.

All in all two great performances from the boy’s who represented their club with great skill and endeavor.
