COMMUNITY GAMES: Our U10 and U12 Draughts Teams, having won gold at County Level, travelled to Clonard, Co. Meath recently for the Leinster Rounds. Both teams played well but were unlucky to lose. Well done to all who played. A special thanks to Noah Downes, Luke Reichert and Niall Sheridan who came to all the training and to team Manager, Catherine Bracken. Our U14 Draughts team travel to Duleek this coming Friday to play their first Leinster round. Best of luck to the Team and Manager. Indoor Soccer – our Boys U13 team lost to Trim on Sunday last in their Leinster game. Hard luck to all the lads. It could have been anyone’s win, as both teams were very evenly matched but a last minute goal by Trim sealed Killoe’s fate. Well done to them all and many thanks to Stephen Duke who did a great job on training the team. Congratulation to our Secretary, Michelle Tully, on birth of baby Hannah.
