Fethard Ladies Football
Hard luck to our under-16 girls who were beaten in the county final by Upperchurch, on a scoreline of 1-05 to 0-04, last Saturday in Boherlahan. But for hitting the post on more than three occasions the result may have been different. The girls must be praised for their brave effort and commitment. Thanks to Tom McCarthy and Kieran Butler for their work with the girls since March and to Tommy Sheehan and Chris Sheehan for their help with training.

The junior ladies have carried their form from last year to 2010 and have reached the junior league final against Gortnahoe which take place on this Tuesday 17th May. Best of luck to all involved.
Our under-12s are currently competing in the championship having reached the second phase of the competition. They are playing very well considering they are all under-12 again next year.

All outstanding membership fees need to be paid immediately as registration is almost complete.
