The Camogie Championship for the Roscommon Gaels U14 team this year is nearing an end. The girls had a great start to the competition with a decisive win against Tulsk. They were defeated in a gruelling match against Domnics where the team showed great grit and determination. The referee commenting that it was the finest display of camogie at that age group she had seen for some time. The next match against Pearses took place in Lisnamult and unfortunately on the night the girls were defeated by one point, always a hard defeat. The next match was against Oran and the team played a free flowing game demonstrating all their skills. Although this was a great match the girls were defeated. . The team is now through to a C final on April 28th when they meet Tulsk again. Training will continue on Tuesday’s and Saturdays in preparation for this final and we wish the girls the best of luck in this final.
Training continues on Saturday 10.30 – 12 and Tuesday nights 7pm – 8pm in Lisnamult. The U14 camogie league begins on May 7th when this team will play six matches during May and June against all clubs in the County.

U14 Div 1 Football
On wednesday last we travelled to Loughlynn to play the amalgamated team of Eire Og/Michael glaveys in round 4 of the League. We came up against a very strong & skillfull team. But our lads although some of them smaller than their oppoistion played some great football in the 1st half.
Half time 2-7 to 0-7. Playing into a hill in the 2nd half Eire Og/Glaveys powered on with some quick fire goals - 2 penalties - which were dubious enough losing out by 7-13 to 1-7.
No shame in the scoreline. Our lads played expectional football at times but just couldn't cope with the power & size of the opposition.
Next we Play St Brigids on 2nd May(home) then boyle on Monday 6th May away.
Below are lads that took part in an U 14 Development squad training on saturday morning in kilbride
