Thomas McCurtains GAA Club Notes.
The Camogs made another piece of history with the clubs first ever camogie game played in Goodmayes on Saturday. They beat Brothers Pearse on a scoreline of 5-3 to 2-4 in the final round of the league. Meanwhile the Hurlers lost out to a strong Brothers Pearse side on Sunday in the first round of their league campaign.

On Tuesday the men will host the newly formed Naomh Padraig in the Preliminary Round of the Junior Championship at Goodmayes while the Ladies travel to Scrubs on Wednesday evening to play Fulham Irish in their first match at the Intermediate grade.
This weekend all four Adult teams will be in action. On Saturday the Camogs will compete in the semifinal, and potential final, of the British League in Birmingham and the Mens Footballers will play Shalloe Pearse in the league at Goodmayes. Then on Sunday the hurlers will look for their first piece of silverware as they play St Gabriels B in the Final of the Ronan Cup in Collindale while the Ladies Footballers play Parnell's in the second round of the Championship at Goodmayes.
