                                                                  Munster Primary School Games

Well done to underage player Ellie O Connor who played in the Munster Primary School

Games today during half time of the Waterford v Tipperary football game in Fraher Field.


The club would like to extend our deepest  sympathies to the family of Eileen O'Donnell,

Ardmore who passed away over the weekend. Eileen was a great supporter of ladies football

and loved nothing more than attending the matches of her children and grandchildren.

Eileen's daughter Mary is involved in our club as a coach and her granddaughter Ellie also

plays. Her granddaughter Kailyn is also a former player. May Eileen rest in peace.
