Boys U14: on Saturday 14th April Taghmon took on All Blacks after a great start the team went 2-0 up. Luke Sinnott and Stephen O'gorman went off trough injury with a lot of players playing out of their positions Taghmon went on to win 3-1. This win put Taghmon into 2nd in the league. Scorers were Stephen O'keeffe, Darren Hayden,& Shane Lacey.

On Tuesday 17th Taghmon took on Curracloe in the cup after a terrible start Taghmon were 3-0 down after 15 minutes but after that Taghmon took control of the game Darren Hayden got one back before half time. A great free kick from Luke Sinnott made it 2 --3 but as hard as Taghmon tried, time ran out for them, the whole team should be very proud of themselves as Curracloe are a first divison team and they were lucky to come away with the win.

Boys U11: The boys went out of the cup to Courtown Hibs this week in a game played at home in terrible conditions last Tues evening. This encounter went all the way and was decided by penalties as it was 1 goal each after extra time. The tie was eventually decided by a single penalty and even though the team lost its first game of the season this was another great performance against a team in a division higher in the league, so well done boys!
