The minor ladies have game on Monday night away to Clann Eireann.

It was disappointment for our U14 girls on Thursday night, losing out to a very good Mullaghbawn side in the Championship final. Despite a tough game great credit must go to all the girls for their never say die attitude which saw them fight hard right until the final whistle. Well done to all the girls and their management team on getting to the final and they can now look forward to welcoming Claremorris U14 girls to Camlough next weekend and taking part in the Féile.
Saturday saw a great day’s football at our annual U10 blitz today which saw a total of 31 teams taking part. There was some brilliant football on display throughout the tournament and there were 3 teams left standing at the end with Dromintee 2 winning the Plate competition beating Silverbridge in the final, Shane O’Neill’s winning the Shield competition beating Middletown in the final whilst Dromintee 1 overcame Cookstown in the final of the Cup. It was a great day all round for the Dromintee club with young Diarmuid O’Rourke collecting the Player of the Tournament award.
We would like to thank all the clubs for their participation and helping to make it such a successful day. We would also like to thank everyone who helped out on the day – referees, score-keepers, photographers, registration takers, burger makers, shop assistants, coffee, tea and sandwich makers, car-park attendants, rubbish collectors and anyone else who played any part on the day. A special of thanks also to Gortrush Foods who supplied the burgers, Davis Bakery for the buns and cakes, Decky Harbinson for providing the PA system, Safe Fuels for the parking provision and Hughes Costcutter for the hot food.
We really hope everyone thoroughly enjoyed their day and we hope to see everyone back next year.
Saturday proved to be a very successful for our U8s when the shield competition at the Poyntzpass blitz. The U8s have being playing some great football recently and their awards were rewarded on Saturday. By all accounts they were excellent on Saturday and great credit must go to all the players and their manager Albie Kelly for their efforts not just on Saturday, but right throughout the year.
Next weekend sees the club host Claremorris U14 girls in the All-Ireland Féile. Claremorris arrive in Camlough next Friday afternoon before heading to Killeavy to play a couple of group games. A number of games will be played in the Shane’s next Saturday also and depending on results the Shane’s and Claremorris U14 girls may head on elsewhere to play in quarter-finals and semi-final. A disco has been organised in the club on Saturday night for our own club members and the Claremorris contingent. It promises to be another busy weekend and anyone with any spare is asked to come along and lend a hand.
