This year our 10 year old boys will be playing with boys from neighbouring clubs Taghmon, Ballyhogue and Crossabeg.

On Friday evening our U12 camogie team impressed their followers with a skillful and spirited performance in their playoff v Bunclody in Killurin. A high standard of camogie was on show from both sides but our girls pulled away in the second half for a confident win which sees them through to an A final soon. Well done to Emma Dempsey and Lara O Shea who represented club and county with the U14 Wexford squad at the National blitz on Saturday in Dublin.


St Patricks Park was the venue Tuesday evening for the Juvenile Co Football Premier Final but our boys met with disappointment as they lost out in extra time to St. Martins. At half time in normal time our boys led by a point 0-03 to 0-02 and in the second half the sides swapped scores aswell as periods of domination to finish at level pegging at the final whistle 7 points apiece. The Martins scored 2 points early on in extra time followed by a goal and then in the closing stages of the game a second goal from the opposition sealed our fate. Hard luck to our 34 boys who gave us some brilliant sporting moments during the year and thanks to the mentors who put in incredible work with both A and B squads. It's a wonderful testament to the club, players and mentors to be able to field two teams in u16 and no doubt this hard work will pay off in the future.

A battling performance from our Minor hurlers saw us overcome a committed Oylegate/ Glenbrien team in Saturday's Premier hurling Semi Final. Our backs fought exceptionally hard to restrict Oylegates dangerous attack and Ciaran in goal was outstanding. Matt from frees and Jack and Fionn from play contributed vital points at key moments. St. Martins await us in the Final in a revisit of last years decider.


Our Junior hurlers played Kilmore on Sunday afternoon in championship quarter final but were pipped at the post by a single point to end their 2015 quest for a Junior hurling title .
