Our senior team had two good outings last week in preparation for the upcoming league. On Wednesday evening last we travelled up to Multyfarnham to play Declan Rowley’s side and on Saturday we played our first match on the new pitch against Annaduff. We thank both teams for the sporting, competitive matches and wish them the best of luck for the season. We play Longford Slashers in Michael Fay Park this Saturday, June 19th in the first round of the Division 1 League at 7pm. Best of luck to Jack Lynn, Niall Mulleady, Dessie Connell, Graham Lee and the squad.
Our junior team were due to play Dromard on Sunday morning last but this was postponed as a mark of respect for the late Cian Gray, Dromard. Everyone at Fr. Manning Gaels extends their deepest sympathy to the Gray family and friends and Dromard GAA on Cian’s very sad passing. Solas na bhFlaitheas air. The juniors play in the Division 4 league this evening Wednesday, June 16th at 7.30pm in Edgeworthstown against Mostrim. Best of luck to the team and management.
