A massive congratulations to all the local lads on the u17 Sligo Hurling team who won the Celtic Challenge Division 5 All Ireland final against Donegal in Bord na Mona O Connor Park, Tullamore last Saturday on a scoreline of 2-8 to 3-12. They put in a huge performance and in the end got what they deserved with a comprehensive victory.
Our seniors lost to Geevagh on Sunday down in Geevagh on a scoreline of 3-11 to 0-13 points in the Division 2 league.
