A massive week ahead for our club with our premier intermediate footballers facing Cill Na Martra on Saturday in the quarter final of the county championship. Of course, the lads have worked incredibly hard to get to this stage of the competition, especially after a marvellous hard-fought win against Castletownbere in Enniskeane two weeks ago. It was fabulous to have such a big support down west and it certainly helped to drive our lads on. Every game at this stage of the season gets bigger in magnitude and importance so it will require a huge effort from the lads to get over the line on Saturday next. With such a big effort needed, please get out and shout the team and management on. The game throws in at 3:30pm on Saturday afternoon in Ballincollig. As we have become accustomed to at this stage, tickets for this one are only available online and can be purchased by clicking on the following link: https://www.universe.com/events/cill-na-martra-v-aghada-bons-secours-pi-football-championship-tickets-20TGV4

Best of luck to Manager Philip Moore, his management team, Captain Danny Creedon and all the players. Give it everything lads!
On Monday next, our Junior B hurlers will be out again when they face Killeagh at 7:30pm in Rostellan. The lads will be hoping to make it three wins for three in the group so come down and support the team. Tickets for this one will be available at the gate.
