This week’s latest Loughmacrory Community News…
Firstly we must start by saying the week starts on a very positive note with the Club Senior Football Team guaranteeing Intermediate Football for 2016 with their 2-11 to 1-11 playoff win over Owen Roes on Sunday in Killyclogher. This was a crucial victory for the team and the club to end what has been a good year and sets the tone for what can hopefully be a successful campaign next term.
In addition there was another All Ireland gold and silver medal for the club on Saturday as Antoin Fox (along with Lorcan McBride) won the All Ireland Junior Doubles 60×30 Colleges Championship title in Waterford for Omagh CBS while Caitlin Conway (along with Emer Kerr) put up a series of excellent displays also to make it to the All Ireland Girls junior Doubles Colleges Championship final.
