Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
County ChampionsWhat a week it was for our Under 14’s as they finished off a long year in style winning both the Eastern and County Championships in the space of five days, first off on Monday night they faced Clonea in Walsh Park, the lads got off to a flying start and went into the break with a commanding 3-07 to 0-03 lead, in the second half they scored six more points to finish out the game on a scoreline of 3-13 to 1-04 leading to great celebrations at the final whistle, it was back to the same venue on Saturday as they took on Brickey Rangers in the County Final. Sion once more got off to a good start and with great performances all through the team from goalie to forwards showed the determination and commitment that has been their hallmark all year and deservedly ended the match on a winning scoreline of 2-09 to 0-08, well done to all involved, the coaches, parents and everyone who helped out over the year with this great bunch of lads who have been fantastic ambassadors for our club in 2015.
The club wishes to extend deepest sympathy to the family, friends and club mates of the late Paul Foley following his sudden passing during the week, ar Dheis De go Raibh a anam.
