The annual Ballinrobe area Mini 7s football competition was held recently in Kilmaine Community Grounds. Thirteen schools in total were represented on the day. The standard of Gaelic football on view once again was exceptional – thanks in no small measure to the good coaching work being done in our schools.

Comhghairdeas do na cailíní as S.N. Thuar Mhic Éadaigh/S.N. Choill a’ tSídheáin a bhuaigh in aghaidh Ballycushion N.S./Gortjordan N.S. sa chluiche ceannais. Well done to Cloonliffen N.S. boys who emerged victorious in the boys’ final against St. Joseph’s N.S., Ballinrobe. Both teams will compete against the winners of the Claremorris area competition later in the year.

Many thanks to all who participated in this year’s Mini 7s and to everyone who helped out on the day, especially our referees Kieran Kilkenny and Martin Costello. Míle buíochas daoibh uilig go léir!
