Underage – Congratulations to St Brigid’s u20s who won the B Championship final last weekend. They beat St Joseph’s 18 points to 2-8, having been one point behind at half time. Well done to all the players and mentors on their achievement!

Medal Presentation – Aughawillan GAA were delighted to host St Brigids’ under-age medal presentation on Friday evening. Dublin’s 6 time All-Ireland winner Ciarán Kilkenny was our special guest on the night and he presented the medals to our young players who thoroughly enjoyed meeting the Dublin star. We would like to thank Ciarán who was very patient & obliging in taking all the players outside for a kick around before offering some very valuable advice to them on what it takes to achieve at the highest level in sport. St Brigid’s Boys U-12 Longford/Leitrim League winners, U-13 Leitrim League winners and Girls U-14 Championship winners were all presented with their medals. Well done to the 3 teams & their hard working mentors on a successful year and 2020 can also be looked forward to with great optimism. Many thanks to our club members who helped prepare our club grounds & helped in the kitchen & carpark. Thank you also to the parents of all the teams from Aughnasheelin, Drumreilly & Aughawillan for preparing/bringing food and generally helping out on the night! Finally huge thanks to former Aughawillan player Thomas Quinn in the Castleknock Club & our own Peter Prior for helping secure the services of Ciarán Kilkenny for a most enjoyable night. See our Facebook page for pictures from the night!
