Manning Cup at Pearse Park, Longford by beating Kildare on Saturday. The club is especially proud to have Diarmuid Regan on the winning panel.

Congratulations to Mark Mc Cabe and his father Jim Mc Cabe, (formerly Derrynasoo) on winning the Meath county football championship with their club Simonstown. Jim was part of the backroom team. They beat Kells in the semi-final with whom Seamus Mattimoe's son was playing (formerly Rockingham).
Our under 13 boys played their division 1 Féile semi-final against St. Brigid's on Sunday last in Kilbride. With a strong gale at their backs in the first half, St. Brigids built up a significant lead by half time. However, the Michael's lads never gave up and with some good link play, they got some good scores in the second half and ended up losing on a scoreline of 2-05 to 7-09. The future is bright for this young team.
Our under 14s are due to play Castlerea in the Garda Cup on Saturday next in Ardcarne Park.
There will be a Minor Committee meeting on Thursday at 8.30pm.
