Primary School Football League

Our local Primary school league for boys and girls started tonight in Tir Conaill. In the girls section; St Francis edged out Gaelscoil Na Ceithre Maistrí by a point in a great game on a scoreline of 5-06 to 4-08 with Scoil An Libh Íosa defeating Scoil Aodh Ruadh agus Nuala. In the boys section; Gaelscoil Na Ceithre Maistrí had a good win over St Francis NS and Scoil Aodh Ruadh agus Nuala had a six point win (3-14 to 3-08) over Scoil An Libh Íosa in an excellent contest. Games continue next Wednesday.


The u8, u10 & u12 hurlers are seeking players to bolster their numbers. So far the u12 team has fulfilled all fixtures with low numbers and have once or twice fallen short of the official number of 9 but still played their matches anyway. Across the three teams there is a core group of keen hurlers who could do with some help from their fellow club members. The u8 and u10 team play blitzes once a month but unfortunately are also struggling for numbers.
A lot of players in the club have enjoyed hurling in the academy, at school and at summer camps down through the years and would be well able to hurl on these teams. This small group of lads enjoy their hurling tremendously and some help from their fellow club mates would ensure that they can fulfill their fixtures and be a little bit more competitive.
It’s a fantastic sport and helps boys develop hand eye coordination and can improve reaction times which is beneficial to other sports. The risk of injury is no higher than any other sport and it is such an enjoyable and skilful fast game.

All our coaches have coaching certificates and are Garda Vetted with some involved at inter county level also. You can contact Laurence u8 at 0877532705, Fergal u10 at 087344598 and Lorcan u12 at 0871354564


The u12 hurlers finished their league campaign away to Letterkenny Gaels recently. The lads enjoyed their hurling all summer and always gave it their best. Success doesn’t always mean victories and it was just great for this group of keen hurlers to keep at it all summer. They never worried about how many players we had nor results, they hurled simply for the love and enjoyment of the game. Many thanks to the parents and players for their support throughout the year and we look forward to more hurling in the future.
