All-Ireland champs – Congratulations to Conor Meyler, Ciaran McLaughlin and Tyrone U21s on a great win on Saturday in the U21 All-Ireland Final. Another brace of All-Ireland medals for St. Enda’s players. Well done all.

Hurling honours – Also congratulations to Des Maginness who was a member of the backroom staff.  Following on from the magnificent All-Ireland win for Conor and Ciaran, two more St. Enda’s players enjoyed success with Tyrone this week when Liam Flanagan and Ciaran Lagan won Ulster Minor Hurling League medals with Tyrone minor hurlers.

Minor championship – There was mixed results for our minor boys last week in the opening round of the Grade 1 and Grade 3 championships. In Derrylaughan we overcame a strong home side in Grade 1 on the score of 2-13 to 3-6 while in St. Patrick’s Park our Devs were very unlucky to fall to Castlederg by just two points 0-13 to 0-15.

The Senior and Reserve men will now play Clonoe at home this Friday night at 6.45 and 8pm.
