Senior B Football

Best of luck to our senior footballers who take on St. Brigid's in the final game in the group stages of The Tullamore Court Hotel Offaly Senior B Football Championship on Sunday morning next at 11.30am in Ballycommon. All support is very much appreciated.


Congratulations to Brosna Gaels who recorded a deserved victory over Kilcormac-Killoughey by 3-17 to 2-14 in The Molloy Environmental Systems Offaly Intermediate Hurling Championship Quarter Final. They have now qualified for the semi final where they will play Drumcullen and as a result will compete in the Senior B Hurling Championship next year.

Cemetery Sunday

Many thanks to all who helped out with stewarding at Mass in Boher Graveyard on Sunday morning. The new surface and kerbing on the Walkways in the Graveyard was the object of many compliments on Sunday. This project was undertaken and completed because of the persistence and determination of Angela Kelly and the professionalism of Pat Kelly and his team.

Rose of Tralee

Congratulations to Jennifer Byrne from neighbouring Clonaderg, Ballinahown who became the first Rose of Tralee from Offaly.
