We hope to see them again in Monaleen before the end of season.

U8 Hurling: Our U8 Hurlers played their first match of the season on Friday 13th April when they travelled out to Mungret to play the hosts. We had a great turnout of both players and supporters on what was a lovely evening for hurling. The dedication the players put into training indoors over the winter months certainly was evident in the games played. The skill levels and attitude of all the players was of the highest level with Monaleen just about shading three of the four closely fought games. Mungret were as always most welcoming hosts on the night.
