CROOM GAA CLUB NOTES
Last Sunday we played Feoghanagh in Feenagh in the final round of the group phase. With Croom already qualified for a semifinal, we were able to give a run to everyone and rest injured players. Final score Croom 2.10 : 2.15 Feoghanagh. Thankfully everyone came through ok and we will have 3-4 weeks to prepare for the semifinal where we meet the winners of Newcastle West and Na Piarsigh.

Team 2 was looked after by Theresa and Stephen and they played Hospital, Knockainey, and Cois Laoi Gaels winning 2 and drawing the last game. It was a great evening with some good play by our players. It was heartening to see so many parents enthusiastically cheering on their kids all evening.

Last Thursday evening we had a feast of hurling and footbal against our near neighbours Dromin/Athlacca/Banogue. Both clubs had 2 teams and the players got plenty of action.
