  • We managed to get our hands on the Pro 12 Trophy last week and bring it on a tour of Barna, Furbo and Spiddal National schools. Many thanks to Eamon Molloy, Luke Murphy and Conan O Donnell from Connacht rugby who brought along the Trophy and engaged with the pupils. Below is a picture from Barna N.S. Lots of good publicity for our club as a result of these visits.

  • Our U11s featured in the half time show at the sportsground in October. Some footage was recorded and is available here . It is a great honour for the children to get game time on the main pitch in front of a packed house and we acknowledge the support of Connacht branch for making this happen every year for us.
