Our intermediate footballers began their 2022 league campaign with a disappointing defeat to Mungret on a scoreline of 3-5 to 1-9 last Sunday. Next up is Cappamore this Saturday 26th March in Cappamore at 3pm.
CROKE CUP FINAL:
Congratulations to Rían O’Byrne and his Ardscoil Rís teammates who won the school’s first ever All-Ireland senior hurling colleges title with a 1-17 to 0-15 over St. Kieran’s College of Kilkenny in the Croke Cup final on St. Patrick’s Day in Croke Park. Rían played in midfield and contributed a point from play. Well done to all on the success.
The club would like to extend its sympathies to the family of Séamus Quinn, late of Ballycahane, Manister, on his recent passing. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.

CON & ANNIE KIRBY
Once again we have been paired with a dog in the annual Con & Annie Kirby memorial stakes starting this Saturday night 26th March. Our dog “The Other Kobe” runs in Heat 6. The club has some free passes available whilst under under 12s get in free. Follow our dog’s progress on Saturday night on Twitter @crecoragaa.
A reminder that our leaflet drop to publicise the launch of the GAA & Camogie Fundraising Drive for the All Weather Pitch, takes place on Saturday 26th March from 10.30am-11.30am. We need volunteers to meet at the GAA pitch to collect leaflets and do a section of road. Also, if you intend to pay the suggested family contribution of €300 towards our Development Plan works, but have not yet done so, now is the time to do it if possible please as works will be starting soon and your support is needed now.
This year’s Feile Peil team competed last weekend and while results did not go their way , the determination and never say die attitude was commendable. Well done also to coaches.
