After enjoying a good win in the opening round of the U21 Bloomers County Premier Football Championship against Mungret St Pauls, the footballers of Rathkeale\Cappagh went onto suffer two defeats. In Round 2 they came up short against Galbally, while last Friday evening they narrowly lost out to near neighbours, Necastle West, on a scoreline of 1-09 to 0-09. That brings an end to our U21 campaign for this season with both Galbally and Mungret St Pauls advancing to the semi-finals. Well done to both the players and management.
Our U21 Hurler’s season also has come to an end in what was a very competitive Premier group. They enjoyed a convincing win over Ahane and were competitive against Mungret St Pauls, however they came up short against Garryspillane and Patrickswell respectively. Hopefully they will enjoy better days in this grade in 2022. Again, well done to both the players and management.
