COMMUNITY GAMES: Our indoor soccer teams were busy over the past few weeks playing their respective competitions. Well done to all the children who took part and represented their parish. The boys U15 and U13 were defeated last week. The U13 girls played Longford South in the final on Sunday last. At the end of full time and extra time the sides could not be divided. A result was only reached after a penalty shoot out and unfortunately the Killashee girls were defeated. The U15 girls played Carrickedmond in the final where they put on a great display of team work and brought home Killashee’s first county gold medals of 2012. Congratulations to Ruth Kavanagh,Amy Webb, Alanna Dolan Orla Duffy and Eadaoin Regan. They have now qualified for the Leinster rounds and we wish them every success. A special word of thanks to the managers Joe Tyrell, Dan Magan and Colman Lee for all their work with the teams.
