As the clocks changed over the weekend, we are now well and truly approaching the conclusion of the GAA year. On Saturday, our GAA For All season finished up for the year. This event every Saturday morning over the last number of months has been an outstanding addition to Aghada GAA club in 2022. It was brilliant to see all the young boys and girls enjoying themselves all summer long. A massive thanks to all the coaches who gave up their Saturday morning to ensure every child had great fun down in Páirc Liam Uí Riain. We hope to see everyone back down in the club early next year for some more fun and games.
East Cork Division 3 Junior Football League Final Vs Midleton:
Our Junior C Footballers had a fantastic victory over Midleton last Friday evening in the East Cork Division 3 football league final. In what was an extremely tight game that went to extra time, our lads eventually emerged victorious by the narrowest of margins on a score line of Aghada 1-13 Midleton 1-12.
Well done to all involved and it was also great to see such a big crowd out to support the lads!
Full match report will follow during the week.
