Annual General Meeting
The club AGM takes place on Friday 29th of November in Athlone GAA clubhouse, Pairc Chiaráin at 8.30.
All members are welcome as is anyone interested in the promotion of hurling in the area. There will be a review of a successful year with the winning of the Junior 'B' Championship. The club will be returning to Intermediate hurling for the first time in four years. There was also a reasonably good year at juvenile level with the Under 8 and 10 teams showing particular promise. 

Minor 'B' Championship
Lough Lene Gaels  4-11 Southern Gaels 0-11
Played under lights in Pairc Chiaráin last Friday this was a must win game for the home side. However, the inability to score goals cost them dearly.  They started well with a two pointed frees by Fionn Dowd but the concession of a goal just before half time left the side 1-7 to 0-4 adrift. The defense led by Shane Galvin and Cathal Mc Givern had performed well up to that
but the Lough Lene Gaels pressure ultimately told.
In the second half Southern Gaels continued to score points with Adrian Garvey, Sean Dowd and Sean Kilgarriff to the fore. Liam Leahy and Fergus Groendykk worked hard in defense but could do little to prevent three Lough Lene goals mid-way through the half. This proved the difference and though down a few regular players the side battled hard to the end.
Team: Ciaran Cleary, Sean Baker, Cathal Mc Givern, Liam Leahy, Shane Galvin, Fergus Groendykk, Sean Kilgarriff, Adrian Garvey (0-1), Ciaran Connolly, Killian Coyle, Fionn Dowd (0-8), Sean Dowd (0-2) and Peter Muldoon.
