Ladies Senior-B Champions
The Garrycastle Ladies Senior B side claimed the B title on Sunday last (October 30th) vs St. Mary's Rochfortbridge in Moate.
Playing with a strong wind in the opening half the 'Castle made good use of the wind to notch up a decent lead of 4-11 to 1-2 at the break.
The second half was all about defending that lead and taking scores when the chances presented and that is exactly what the girls did. They defended tightly, with great tackles and good clearances and, despite strong pressure from the 'Bridge they held their nerve and won out.
Overall, this was a committed performance with a great all-round effort.
Captain Sarah Dolan was presented with the cup. Congratulations to the girls and team manager Colin Clyne, and his backroom team of Brian Murphy, Orla Breathnach, Noelle Murphy and Marie McGovern. Thanks to all who travelled to Moate to support the girls.
Garrycastle Team: Cliodna Murtagh, Sarah Carter, Aimee Duncan, Ailish Mannion, Jessica Frawley, Clodagh Mc Cahey, Stephanie O’Neill, Treasa McGuire, Roisin Murphy, Tegan Foley, Elaine McGovern, Aoife Dolan, Kacey Mulvihill, Hazel Donegan, Sarah Dolan, Donnahay Molloy, Arlene Devery, Kayleigh Clyne, Ella Dowling, Emma Connaughton, Amy McGovern, Ella Dowling, Grace Halligan, Nessa Dowling, Orlaith Lynch.

Enda Mulvihill RIP
It is with tremendous pain and sadness that we announce the passing of one of our most decorated, dedicated and loved club members, Enda Mulvihill after a short illness.
A former captain of the club, Enda was renowned for his leadership qualities.
Enda has been a member of our club since 1987, starting at under-10, and played a starring role in much of the club’s success at underage.
At senior level Enda won 7 County Medals and we will all remember the role Enda played when we beat St. Brigids to win the Leinster Club Championship in 2011.
Enda represented Westmeath also, culminating in All Ireland success as part of the u21 All Ireland win in 1999.
A season ticket is now available to purchase covering entry to all Westmeath Club Championship games for 2022.
This ticket covers Football and Hurling, and includes the respective county finals.
