Congratulations and well done to Annmarie Murphy who took part in the Discus U16 and Clodagh Kiely who took part in the High Jump U16 at the Community Games National Finals in Athlone last weekend. Emma Nevin took part in the Art Finals the previous weekend. The three girls did their parish and county proud and we hope to see them all back at the National finals in 2016.
