Garrycastle Minors in Division 3 County Semi-Final (13-a-side)

The Garrycastle Minor team lost out to Millmore Gaels in the Division 3 County semi-final in Kilbeggan on Saturday, Sept 27th. Fielding with only 8 minor players, and with three under-16 players making their debut at this level, it was always going to be an uphill task to win, and thus it proved on the day. 

Well done to all who turned out on the day - even with the game getting away from them, they did not let their heads drop, and played with huge effort right to the end.
