Hurling and Camogie– Our hurling and camogie finals took place on Friday last in Newmarket GAA grounds. The boys played Freemount NS in the 9 aside B Hurling final and had a fantastic victory. Our girls had a tough battle against Millstreet girls in the 7 a side Camogie final, and were narrowly beaten in a tremendous game. Well done to all our players on an incredible year. A medal presentation for the victorious boys team will be held in conjunction with our Ice Cream Fun Day on June 26. All welcome.
