Padraig Pearses, Ballinasloe 2-11 Southern Gaels 3-2
Our adult team lost out to Padraig Pearse in this challenge match on Sunday morning, 13th of May. A gale bowing directly down the field turned this into the proverbial game of 2 halves.
After failing to score in the first half, we scored 3 excellent goals in the second to cut the large half time deficit. Junior training continues on Mondays and Thursdays. All new players welcome. Please contact Patrick Flynn (0878068042 ) about joining training.

Under 8s
Under 8 Blitz took place on Saturday May 12th in Ballymore. Great turn-out considering there was Coosan First Communion.
We had 3 Games competing against 2 Oliver Plunkett Teams and 1 from Ballymore. All kids got great game time to practice all their skills learned from the many training sessions attended. Well done to all on scoring numerous goals and only conceding a few. One highlight would have to be the ball cleared from defence and met by 3 more strikes on the run to finish it off to the net at the other end.   The Future of Southern Gaels Hurling looks good.
