Then in recognition of their All Ireland success in Scór and in front of a very appreciative crowd  Niamh and the Clonduff Ballad group( Paul, Colleen, Agnes, Martina and Caroline) were  presented with commemorative medals  by County Chairman Sean Rooney accompanied by William James Smith County Cultural Officer and Paula Magee from Coiste Scór Naisiunta.   At half time George Thompson ,from our u-12 squad,represented the Club in the Clubs of Down presentation at Half time in the Senior Final.  Congratulations to Burren Minors and Kilcoo Seniors on their respective Championship wins and we wish them well in the Ulster Championships and beyond. 


The Eire Óg u-13s had a tough home fixture on Saturday against a very strong Rostrevor side. Despite some good performances from the Eire Óg lads it was not to be their day and it was the visitors who were victorious.

Eire Óg u-16's  take to the field this Saturday in Drumgath for the U-16  "B" final against Clann na Banna.

Great to see our local talent doing well.

The boys and girls have really developed their skills and teamwork throughout the year and this was very evident in how they played in their games.  The players and mentors will take a break for the winter and Glasdrumman Youth Club will commence shortly. Thanks to all parents and players who committed to the team this season. We will be in touch soon with details of the end of season treat.
