CROOM GAA CLUB NOTES
All roads lead to Bruff this Sunday for the county semifinal v Newcastle West at 2.45pm. We have been looking forward to this for the last few weeks and training hard. Although we beat them in the goup phase in April, this will be a different team we face on the back of their massive win over Effin in their quarter final, they seem to be going well. We hope as many club members, friends, families, and supporters can make their way to Bruff and wear as much blue and white, and make as much noise as possible to help the team get into the county final. Croom Abu!
