Our u12 girls met Ballygarrett in the County Final in Oylegate on Saturday last and in spite of tireless committment in which every player gave of their best they failed to get the upper hand of Ballygarrett who won on a scoreline of 7-3 to 3-5.
Hard luck to these young determined players whose dedication was second to none. Hard luck also to team manager, Bernard O'Gorman and his mentors as they gave one hundred percent to this squad.
The u16 girls had a great semi final win over Horeswood during the last week, winning with a score of 6-7 to 3-2. Scorers on the day were Eadaoin Cadogan 2-1, Jackie Curran 2-1, Ailish Sinnott 1-2, Cliona Banville 1-0, Clodagh Kent 0-2 and Sinead Rowe 0-1. The girls will meet St. Fintans in the co. final on a date to be arranged.

Taghmon ICA guild held their first meeting of the new season last Wednesday night in the Scout Hall.
We were all delighted to meet again after our Summer break and a very warm welcome was extended to Nora Murphy, our newest member. Condolences were extended to Chris Whitty on the death of her mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Eagers, who died during the summer.
Extensive discussion took place regarding strategies and agenda for the coming year, the aim being to make this a very productive and fulfilling 2010 - 2011 session for our guild and community.
Our speakers at the meeting were Stella and Johnny of Kilmore RNLI. They gave us a great insight into the training, risks and dangers, and of course the complete lack of funding from central government for their vital rescue service. The fact that it is a local service has often meant the difference between life and death for fishermen and seafaring pleasure seekers alike. Thank you to Joan for organising their visit.
Refreshments were provided by Helen and Florence. Marie Keane won the raffle and Joan Dier won our monthly competition. Well done to both. Next month's competition is "My pet aversion (hate) in 5 words or less "

UNDERAGE GAA NEWS
The U14 boys played their Hurling final against Ballygarret in Wexford Park last Sunday morning. Unfortunately this was not to be their day and were beaten by a strong Ballygarret team.
The team was unlucky not to have scored a couple more goals which might have changed the direction of the game. The boys can be proud of their effort on the day and they all gave 100%. With only 2 players from the panel overage next year they have a lot to look forward to.
The mentors, Barry McGrath, Dareen Deering and Johnny Waters would like to thank the boys for their commitment during the year and to everybody who supported the team not only in the Final but during the summer also.
U8 boys: Well done to the 2 boy's football teams who won their respective finals in the Horeswood football league last Saturday in Campile.

The younger boys also played against Gusserane in what was another very tight game in which they won 2-0 to 0-0. The scorers on the day were James Kelly and Maurice Cogley.
This was the last game of the year for the u8 boys and David Foley and the mentors would like to thank all the boys for their effort, commitment and good behavior since January. A big thank you also to the parents/adults who supported the kids and drove them to and from training and matches
