Erins Own LGFC Under 14 team Feile June 2015


Erins Own LGFC Under 14 team recently took part in Feile 15 in Wexford . They performed excellently falling short in their first 2 matches by just a single point and an exciting extra time victory in the third game (shield qtr final) ensured a Sunday morning game in the Shield semi-final. Unfortunately they came up short to a stronger Old Leighlin side. They returned home with their heads held high and did their club and families proud. They had a fantastic weekend and congratulations to all involved from players, coaches, families and to the many sponsors for the weekend, some of which are listed below.

U14 Erin’s Own Girls Gaelic Football Team

The U 14 Erin’s Own Girls Gaelic football team will travel to Wexford town
in late June to take part in Feile 2015 under the management of John Cahalan
and his mentors, Eugene Dowling, John Moore & Fiona Maher.
This is an exciting challenge for the young girls, most of whom are only
playing Gaelic for 1-2 years. The team are presently doing well in the
Carlow League and train weekly in either the Prince or Ballycomey.
The Gaelic football club has become an important part of close to 100 girls
lives in Castlecomer and surrounding parishes, ranging from U 8 up to Junior
level. They have a nice collection of silverware to boast after a short time
on the football scene, huge recognition for this must go to Andy Korff who
got it off the ground in 2012.
