Thanks to everyone who supported the Easter Fundraiser in aid of Glen Graham Appeal

The Easter activities for kids went well with dozens of little eggs discovered on the Easter Egg hunt and paper maché eggs made and decorated as well as rabbit cookies.

The U14 footballers were in Burren where they found the locals much too strong.

The U18 footballers made the short journey to Atticall but came home pointless suffering a heavy defeat after a bright start. Scorers: Paddy McComiskey 2-0, Eoin Sloan 0-4, Rory Quinn 0-1, Conor Clarke 0-1.

The U16 footballers played Tullylish at Dunavil coming out victors 4-17 to 1-12 having played some good football and shot some fine scores with all fifteen players getting game time. There was only a goal in it at the break, An Riocht leading 2-6 to 1-6 before stepping it up in the third quarter adding 1-7 before Tullylish scored but by then the gap was already too big for the visitors.

The Senior Camogs began their season in Ballyholland with a 2-11 to 1-3 success. Ahead by a goal at the break, 2-2 to 1-5, An Riocht took out on the restart outscoring the home side nine points to one. Scorers: Aine Fearon 0-8, Colleen Fearon 1-1, Sinead O’Rourke 1-0, Aoife McDowell 0-1, Carrie Killen 0-1. 

However, the second match at home to Ballygalget was pulled due to a shortage of referees, hard to build momentum in these circumstances.

The Junior Camogs match away to Darragh Cross was postponed as Darragh could not field.

The U16 Camogs lost by seven points in Liatroim.

The U12 Camogs participated in their second blitz in Ballygalget winning two of their three games, well done.

There is a big push on now to complete the ‘Cow Pat’ squares, anyone who can help part fill a sheet should collect one and part fill it before returning it for someone else to fully complete.
