U-16s: The Derek Duggan Travel sponsored U-16s ended a six year absence to claim their first U-16 Division 1 Championship title following a hard-fought victory over St Ciaran’s on Saturday last in Knockcroghery. (See sports section for full match report). A goal by Paul Daly deep into first half injury-time stretched Brigid’s lead to 2-8 to 1-6 at the interval and they powered to victory in the second-half. Well done to all the squad along with Brian Lennon and his management team for putting in such a huge effort over many months. Team and scorers: St Brigid’s: Cormac McDonnell; Shane Furey; Dylan Kelly; Darren Carroll; Gavin Byrne, Ciaran Walsh; Jimmy Curley; George O’Hara (0-1); Conor Murray (0-1); Paul Daly (2-2); Brian Stack; Ryan Jinks; Brian Derwin (0-3, all frees); Luke Carty (0-2); Jack McDonnell (1-4, three frees, 1 ‘45).

U-12s:  Congratulations are also in order for the Millmount Maintenance Services sponsored U-12s, who put in a magnificent all-round team performance over four games against quality opposition to win the Corofin tournament in Galway on Saturday last. After defeating host club Corofin and Killoe from Longford in the group games, they went on to defeat Castlebar in the semi-final, setting up an intriguing final against Corofin. The host club had the better of the exchanges in the first half and were leading 2-3 to 0-4 at half-time. St Brigid’s still had it all to do going into the closing stages, trailing by three points. However, Shane Cunnane followed up on his own free to find the net while another late converted free from the same player ensured a last-gasp victory for St. Brigid’s. Well done to the players, Eamon Cunnane and his management team. U-12 squad on Saturday last: Evan Gallagher, Luke Grieslan, Liam Egan, Darragh Murray, Shane Keenan, Ciaran Quinn, Shane Cunnane, Danny McDermott, Cormac Canny, Seán Trundle, Ben O’Carroll, Robbie Dolan, Faolán Kennedy, Eoghan Derwin, Adam Samuels, Ultan O’Rourke, Shane Kelly, Ultan O’Rourke, Jack Schouler, Ruairdhí Fallon.
