CONGRATULATIONS: Well done to the Rathcline Ladies senior team who defeated Newtown Blues in the quarter final of the Leinster club championship on Sunday last. The girls displayed an impressive performance in a game that ended with a score line of 3-9 to 2-8. The semi-final will take place next weekend with venue and time yet to be decided. The club would like to thank all the supporters who travelled to the game in Louth, especially in the wet conditions; the girls really appreciated the support. We would also like to thank everyone who supported our table quiz and sponsored prizes for the raffle, a full list of sponsors will be listed next week.
