SCHOOLS FOOTBALL - Well done to the girls football team who have qualified for the county final with a great victory over Graignamanagh in their semi-final recently. It was a close game all the way through and Conahy had to work really hard to secure the win, which they did on a 3-2 to 2-1 score line. They now can look forward to the county final, which takes place on Thursday, November 22nd in Nowlan Park at 1.30 p.m. Best of luck to the girls and their coaches.

HURLING - The under-16 hurlers brought the curtain down on a good season for themselves as they enjoyed a thrilling victory over Bennettsbridge in the Roinn B league shield final in Jenkinstown on Saturday morning last. It was a superb game from start to finish with some excellent scores from both sides. As it was, Conahy were just about able to hold on for victory, winning in the end by 3-12 to 2-14. GAA club members are reminded that the Bórd na n-Óg AGM takes place on Friday, November 23rd at 8 p.m. in the GAA Clubhouse.
