This week saw our Under 16 Hurlers played Croagh Kilfinny in the U16 Division 3 Championship Final. Unfortunately it was not to be our day this year with our team loosing out by 2 points at the final whistle. Great credit however is due to this team and their coaches on reaching the final and we look forward to watching them perform again next season. Dromin Athlacca GAA Club would like to thank each player, parent, mentor and coach along with our COVID Officers for ensuring our club continues to adhere to all guidelines. Please continue to register on Returntoplay.ie before each training session and game.
