Thank you to John and Grainne and all at St. Ronan's. It was a very competitive and entertaining encounter with Éire Óg fighting through to the final whistle but thankfully it was the St. Michael's team who finished on top. Well done to the team, management and parents and thanks to all who helped out at the celebrations in the Complex.

The St. Michael's/St. Ronan's under 20's turned around a 4 point half time deficit to win by 8 points in their face off with Kilglass/St. Barry's at Kilglass on Sunday.

Update 29/10/17

Apart from the odd patch of fog playing conditions were ideal at the floodlit pitch in Ballyforan on Friday night last for the division 4 minor boys final between St. Michael's/St. Ronan's and St. Croan's. Unfortunately it was the large crowd who travelled from the extreme north of the county who left this fixture disappointed and frustrated. In the end two points separated the sides following a high scoring entertaining match. St. Croan's 5-09 St. Michael's/St. Ronan's 4-10.
