Club Football 2021 

The planning report for this years competitions has recently been issued to clubs. For the Junior Football Championship, we have been drawn in Section A along with the following teams: Bunbrosna, The Downs, Athlone, St Lomans Mullingar and Garrycastle. The top two teams in this group will proceed to the semi-finals while teams in 3rd and 4th place will play in the quarter finals against the top two sides from Section B. The Planning Committee proposes an U19 competition to run concurrent with the Senior A, Intermediate & Junior competitions. There is also the possibility of a mini league at adult and U19 levels (Covid dependent) starting in April provided the country is at Level 2 restrictions. So while these are dark times for all, hopefully the months ahead will see our sports return and give us all something to look forward to.


Pitch Development

All work is currently on hold due to the current restrictions in place. However a lot of work was carried out over the weeks leading up to the current lockdown and once we are allowed to continue our development, this preparation work will allow progress begin at pace again and ensure that our new training pitch and lights around out main pitch are completed as soon as possible. Unfortunately our walking track remains closed at this time as the entire site is closed for construction.


New Arrivals

We send our heartiest congratulations to club footballer, Brandon Carey, and his parter Chloe Smith, on the birth of their baby son over the weekend. We also send our congratulations to Orlaith Heeney and her parter, Noel McGrath, on the birth of their daughter, Maisie Anne and also on their recent engagement.



We extend our condolences to Robert Mizzell and his family on the passing of his father, Richard. We also send our sympathy to Fr. Benny Bohan on the death of his brother, Fr. James Bohan. May they Rest in Peace.
