Underage Update:

Our U16 girls played neighbours Westmeath in a challenge last Saturday at 4pm in Kilucan
This was a very worthwhile exercise for the U16 squad with all 30 players featuring. The Roscommon girls were far superior throughout and ran out easy winners. A big thanks to all the supporters who travelled to cheer on the girls and also to Westmeath for providing nice refreshments for the girls and the supporters after the game. Training continues for these girls on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Our Minor’s also play Westmeath in a friendly this Tuesday at a venue to be announced; please watch social media for details.

Our U14’s play Cavan in a challenge next Saturday at 10am in Tarmanbarry

Fixtures for all inter county teams are now unloaded on the Connacht LGFA website. I will also make them available hear over the next couple of weeks. Just to note the U14’s and the Minors will begin their campaign on 31st March with away fixtures to Leitrim with u16’s not beginning till the 17th April away to Galway.
