MOMS ACTIVE: Pride of place this week goes to our Mums Active group. They took part in a Gaelic4Mums football blitz in Mourne Abbey, Mallow
last Saturday…and what a day it proved to be! They played with poise, determination and skill. Lá dá saol! The ladies played 7 ten minute games and won all 7. Gaisce mór, a chailíní! All nine team members played impressively. An fhoireann bhuacach: C.McKivergan, N.Collins, D.White, Ú.Moynihan, A.Moynihan, B.Mannix, T.McCorry, M.Barry, M.Murphy. All moms had a most enjoyable day and are in training for the next tournament which will be held in Dublin in October. We look forward to seeing our Munster Champions in Croke Park and beyond!
ACADAHM NA gCAILÍNÍ: Bhí cailíní an Acadaimh an-ghníomhachi bPáirc Uí Chonghaile Dé Domhnaigh seo caite. We were lucky to have a dry morning amidst all the rain. Various old and new drills were used during the session. We had a good turnout of girls, considering weather, other sports and holidays! Welcome to Katelyn Cashman who came along on the day and we hope that she enjoys her time with us. The UNDER 10 girls have a blitz next Saturday 24th in Gallarus, Corca Dhuibhne. We will be leaving from Connolly Park at 9.30am. Drivers will be required, please, and all offers of transport will be gratefully appreciated. Dear moms and dads, please ensure that all players have packed lunch, drink and jacket. We expect to be back around 4.30-ish. Our UNDER 12 girls had a friendly match at Finuge on Monday evening and report will be in next week’s notes.
TRAENÁIL ARÍS: The Under Eight, Under Ten and Under Twelve girls will be back training at Connolly Park next Sunday, 25ú Iúil, at 11am. We are welcoming new girls every week…so, come and join in the fun…fáilte romhat!

BIRTHDAYS: The Acadamh wishes a “breithlá sona” to Rebecca Hayes who will be eight on Thursday 22nd July.
FAOI 14: Last Friday night we had a very successful UNDER 14 blitz fixture in Connolly Park with Churchill and Duagh. The girls really enjoyed the different type of competition. Many thanks to the two clubs and I hope that we can repeat it later in the month. Training continues on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 5.30pm in our own Connolly Park.
FAOI 16: We have an UNDER 16 game against Kilcummin this weekend…time and date to be confirmed. Training is on each Tuesday evening at 6:30pm. Congrats to Laura and Charlotte on their successful outing in the Munster Final against Cork last Saturday.
CLUB SENIORS: Castlegregory provided stiff opposition in the Junior Championship last Monday evening. After struggling initially we got into our stride and played excellent football in the second half to pull away and record a good victory…gaisce eile! We played Currow on Monday night…details in next week’s notes. It is great to see the girls putting a huge effort into training and into the games and if this continues we will not be very far away from ultimate success. Mná na Carraige go deo!
ABBEY/STACKS: The Senior ABBEYDORNEY/STACKS team training continues on Tuesday in Abbeydorney and on Thursday in Connolly Park. Joe and David are always looking for improvement. Mná na Carraige agus Mná na Mainistreach: i dteannta a chéile is fearr iad!
