Come Dine with Me

Due to the Large number of people who wanted to be involved in his event, it was decided to move this event to the October bank holiday weekend. This was due to a number of people who are on holidays in July.

It works like this:

 The club is seeking generous hosts to hold a dinner party at their house at their own expense.

 We are particularly seeking the parents of current players to volunteer.  

 The host invites friends or family around and charges €25 a head - this money is passed to the club.

 The dinner commences around 6.30pm - 7.00pm

 Between 11pm & midnight a complimentary taxi will take you and your guests to the GAA for the After Party.

 During the night hosts will be encouraged to share videos and photos on our social media. The snaps will be collated and shown in the Pavilion along with the judging & prize giving.

 There will be music & entertainment along with a raffle and lots of prizes for participants. 

If you wish to get involved please contact; Colm on  087 7638171 or or message us on Facebook

U12 Girls

Congratulations to our U12 girls who were crowned county champions last week in Tullamore, against Ballinamere-Durrow. This was a well contested Final between two evenly matched teams. The first half scores were hard to come by with the wind slightly favouring Edenderry. The Half time score was Edenderry 0-02, Ballinamere Durrow 0-00, the two Edenderry points coming from a free for Rachael O'Leary and a superb individual long range point from Leah Farrell. The second half started with a Ballinamere Durrow point, however Alannah Burke rattled the back of the net with a thunderbolt of a shot for Edenderry. There was just 2 points in the game with eight minutes remaining in the game with Rachel O’Leary accuracy pushed ahead Edenderry further with another pointed free. With the winning of the game in their sight Edenderry stepped up another gear with Bernadette McKeon scoring what proved to be the winning goals to see Edenderry Crowned U12 County Champions. The final score was Edenderry 03-05 Ballinamere- Durrow 0-05.

There were some superb displays on the night, Shauna Phelan hasn’t conceded a goal in the semi-final or final. Shauna Byrne, Aoife Shakesphere and Tara Tyrell never put a foot wrong all game. Aoibheann Maher, Leah Farrell and Caron Dunne defended as if their lives depended on it. In Midfield Jessie Sheridan and Mia Ryan were dominant all through. Bernadette McKeon, Rachel O’Leary and Isabell Lyons contributed on the scoreboard and work tirelessly for the team. Sophie Lowry, Allanah Burke and Abby Connelly defended from the front and contributed on the scoreboard also. Ruby Foran came on a sub and her work rate was invaluable especially in the second half. This was a great achievement by every girl on the panel and the management. We would like to thanks all our supporters who turned out in a very wet evening in Tullamore.

The full panel of players are:

Shauna Phelan, Shauna Byrne, Aoife Shakespeare, Tara Tyrrell, Aoibheann Maher, Leah Farrell, Caron Dunne, Jessie Sheridan, Mia Ryan, Bernadette McKeon, Rachael O'Leary, Isobelle Lyons, Abby Connolly, Alannah Burke, Sophie Lowry.
