Shield: An outing for all supporters will be this coming Sunday as Aughawillan play Bornacoola at 12noon in Bornacoola.
Minor League: St. Brigids played Allen Gaels in the second round of the 13 a-side league on Saturday in Drumshanbo.

Supporters please note Round 3 will see St. Brigid’s play St. Marys Kiltoghert at 12 noon in St. Marys Park, Carrick on Shannon on Saturday. Best of luck to the lads.
