The League was well represented last weekend at the AUL Complex for the annual Munster schools Inter Pros U15 girls competition, where girls from Munster, Leinster, Ulster & Connaught were selected to represent their Province at the competition.

Sara has played in our last two Gaynor Cups at u13 & u14 where we finished 2nd & 4th respectively grade and now plays with our U16 Interleague team.

Eleanor plays with Ballingarry AFC U14s & U16s and attends Laurel Hill Secondary School in Limerick City.
