Youths Rugby:

Creggs U13’s made the short journey to Athlone to Play Buccaneers RFC on Saturday morning and lost out on a scoreline of 24-17. A good learning experience for the lads who scored a couple of early tries in the first half but found it hard to break Buccaneers down after the break and a score from the Athlone outfit with the last play of the game secured their victory. Training continues for the U13’s next Friday at 7pm. The U13’s have no game now for two weeks.

Creggs U15’s travelled to Ballina last Sunday for a league game and came away with a comprehensive 56-8 victory. Creggs scores came from Tries from Jack Tucker, Mark Purcell, Darren Gately, Aaron Lyons, Ethan Glennon and Rory Callaghan and conversions from Mark Purcell and Jack Tucker on the day capped off a very good win. It was a good performance by the lads who lost their opening two league games. Prominent for Creggs on the day were Luke Divilly, Ronan Lambe, Ben Finnerty, Conor McNulty, Cian Glennon and Brandon Kilcommons. The U15’s have no league now for two weeks. Training continues Thursday at 7pm.

Creggs U16’s train next Thursday at 7pm and are due to play Sligo in the league in Creggs next weekend.Time to be confirmed at time of going to press.

Creggs U18’s played their first league match of the campaign last Saturday night against Castlebar RFC away. Playing without a few regulars and playing a team who already had two league games under the belts, it took the lads a while to get going and they were especially impressive in the second half eventually going down 28-15. Scores for Creggs on the night came from Tries from Mairtin Quinn and Eoghan Coyle as well as a penalty and conversion from Shane Purcell. Next weekend the U18’s will play Buccaneeers RFC away in Athlone on Bank Holiday Monday at 1pm.. Hopefully a few more of the squad will be back for the game in what promises to be a tight affair. Training Friday Night in Creggs at 8.30pm.

Creggs U14’s will train next Friday at 7pm. Next weekend the U14’s have a home game against Ballina RFC, day to be confirmed.

Athleague Camogie Club are delighted to announce our new
“A Hurl For Every Girl Campaign” Supported by Local Farmers & Industry.
Athleague Camogie Club has gone from strength to strength in the recent past with successes from underage to Senior County titles. With the support of our main sponsor Ward and Burke Construction coming on board in 2018, this has certainly supported and helped progress the promotion of our game in the Athleague Camogie catchment area.
Being part of any team, especially camogie and allied sports like GAA & Rugby, builds a good work ethic, collaboration, cooperation and learning to be part of a team. Team membership also builds resilience in players when learning to deal with success as well as failure. All these skills are crucial qualities for young people moving forward into the professional working world.
In the catchment area for Athleague Camogie Club there are 161 girls attending national school in the Creggs, Fuerty, Athleague and Ballymurray schools. We are lucky to have a great relationship with other clubs within our area, and as we don’t have our own pitch, these clubs kindly facilitate us with use of their grounds, namely Athleague Pitch, Tremane Pitch, Mulhern Park and Creggs RFC. Camogie is a minority sport in the parish. However, camogie is a noble Gaelic sport which enhances skills of resilience and courage. Those who participate as part of a team contribute positively in the workplace.
A new initiative has been launched by the club’s main sponsor Ward and Burke Construction to supply each of these primary school girls with a hurl and sliotar. Other local businesses have come on board to support this initiative including Aurivo, Kepak and Local Dairy Farmers. Senior club members will deliver the hurls and sliotars to the younger players during the next few weeks with further information on how to join our club.
For the past 4 years Michael Ward of Ward & Burke Construction has been the main sponsor for our club. His support and advice have allowed us to undertake initiatives like this “Hurl For Every Girl” campaign. A strong believer in gender equality, his company actively recruits, promotes, and encourages women to see past old stereotypes and realise their true potential in a predominantly male employment sector of construction. Michael, a former formidable sportsman himself truly believes in how invaluable playing a team sport is for young people, and for young girls in particular. Along with building character and resilience, it gives focus and direction at times in life when it is needed most, lifelong friendships are forged, and opportunities are opened up.

Aurivo are global leaders in food and dairy nutrition, bringing clean, green products from sustainable Irish farms to the world market. They offer fantastic career opportunities and are always looking for strong, enthusiastic, and ambitious people to join their teams. Having a sports background gives girls an edge on their competition in the career marketplace, as they understand teamwork, commitment, hard work and ambition
Kepak work with over 15,000 Quality Assured beef, lamb, and pork producers nationwide. We are extremely lucky to have a Kepak facility in our catchment area that is committed to supporting employment in Athleague and further afield. They also support local initiatives and sports teams in a loyal and practical way. Kepak too are always looking to recruit enthusiastic people to join their company, indeed many of their senior management have worked their way up the career ladder by training and working in all sectors of the business from operations and sales to procurement and product development.
These companies offer graduate programmes, and this is where Athleague Camogie Club comes in…… We want to encourage girls to look to these companies as career options, to promote rural Ireland and our community. We want them to see the bigger picture, these jobs are not just for males, young women’s potential within these organisations is limitless.
Our Local Dairy Farmers have joined us on this initiative to help promote rural jobs, to encourage girls to see farming as a real and viable option for them and to encourage growth and sustainability of the family farm. As we are a rural community it is vital for our survival and prosperity that young women can stay in their local area if they wish to, and that they are supported in their endeavours to promote women in farming as a career option. Keeping our community vibrant helps everyone not just our sports clubs.
