Pride of place goes to the under 12 girls team for winning the division 2 league for the second year in a row. An unbelievable effort from all the girls and management all season is now paying dividends and they now move up to division one. They are the first team ever in the club to be playing in a top division. On Saturday morning at training county players Niamh Mcgettigan and Sarah Miley presented the girls with their winning trophy. Well done to everyone and thanks to Niamh and Sarah for their time presenting the trophy.
Well done also to the under 14 girls beating St. Pats away on Thursday 4-14 to 1-5 and to Shannon Sweeney and Sophie Murphy who represented Wicklow in a county under 13 blitz in portlaoise on Saturday.
The junior B team kept up their perfect league campaign on Thursday beating An Tochar 4-14 to 1-5 to stay top of the league. Hard luck to the senior team who lost away to Baltinglass on Friday night. Best of luck to JT Moorehouse, Sam oDowd, Ciaran Coffey and the rest of the county under 20 team who play Wexford on Saturday in the Leinster championship. Kevin Gill is also a selector on the team.
Happy birthday to two great supporters of the club with Mary Dowling turning 80 and Laurence Doyle turning 50 and also congratulations to Lee Ryan and Naomi Nolan on their recent wedding. Condolences to the family of John Power (kirvin hill) who sadly passed away last week. May he rest in peace.
