Glynn-Barntown camogie club were extremely proud of our incredible under-12 and under-14 club camogie player Ciara Butler who lined out in Croke Park on Sunday at half time in the Minor Hurling all-Ireland Final. Earlier this year Ciara had been put forward by her school Glynn NS to be part of a GAA INTO RESPECT Go Games Exhibition match and having been selected she was delighted to step out on the hallowed ground of Croke Park on such an exciting occasion.


Our under-10s took part in a football blitz on Friday evening in Tagoat where they played three games and won two of them.

Hard luck to our under-12 Blue team who lost their Shield hurling final on Sunday morning by six points to Shelmaliers.

Well done to our under-12 Boys Green hurling team who defeated Oulart at home on Thursday evening and are now in the Shield final.

The under-12 Blue team travelled to Dublin on Saturday to take part in St Vincent's blitz where they won the plate section of the event. The under-14 hurlers ran out of luck also on Saturday morning in their Co semi-final V Blackwater.

Friday evening saw our under-16 footballers exit the championship also at semi-final stage to a strong Starlights outfit.


It was not to be for our under-21 hurlers in the Premier Co Final in Innovate Wexford Park on Tuesday evening.

Our lads had a good first half performance which left only two points between the teams (to the Martin's advantage) at the interval and were still in the game up to half way through the second half before the opposition scored the goal both sides sought after.

They kicked on from there and the gap widened to eight points. The Glynn-Barntown boys fought hard to the end but the victory went to St Martin's. With 12 of the starting 15 still under age next year the future looks promising.

In their first season back in the senior ranks our footballers march on to a Co semi-final following their one point victory over Shelmaliers in the quarter final on Saturday in Bellefield.


Notices for inclusion in the Glynn-Barntown area notes should be emailed to or alternatively, phone Hillary at 087 2028065.
