Ballycumber GAA Notes (October 18)
Cumann na Bunscoil
Congratulations to Boher National School Boy's team who have qualified for the Final of the Boys Football Group C, where they will take on Tubber N.S. at 3.15pm on Wednesday in O’Connor Park. We wish Mr. Naughton and all the boys the best of luck. All support would be very much appreciated.
Well done to the Boher N.S. Girls team who reached the semi final, where they lost to a very good Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada, Tullamore team in O’Brien Park, Tullamore on Friday last. The girls tried their hearts out in difficult conditions, but could not stop the goal scoring ability of their opponents. The team were delighted with the support they received from family and friends. As usual Mr Naughton did a great job as mentor.

Brosna Gaels and Lusmagh must meet again on Sunday next at 2pm in Moystown after a high scoring draw in the Division 2 Hurling League Final played in Moystown on Saturday. This game finished level after extra time on a score of 2—20 to 1—13.
