Mid-August 2019 Harps GAA Roundup
THE HARPS GAA: A fabulous performance in wet conditions by our U13 hurlers saw the boys crowned Division 1 League Champions in Abbeyleix on Monday night last. From start to finish the boys hurled with great passion to overcome a talented Abbeyleix Gaels team. Once again huge congratulations to the boys and dedicated mentors who put so much time and effort into the development of this fabulous group of players!
This win was preceded by the U13 hurlers who have also brought great pride to the club by winning the LJ Drennan tournament in Knockaroo recently. The boys were successful in the cup final against a strong Shinrone team taking home the sliverware. Huge congratulations to all involved. A big thank you to Borris /Kilcotton and the Drennan family for the annual invite and an excellently run tournament.
Electric Picnic Tickets Raffle: The club is running a raffle for much sought after electric picnic tickets. Please see local outlets or any committee member for a chance to win this incredible prize.
Division 5 Football League Winners – The Harps 4-12 v 1-07 Clonaslee: Well done to the Harps Football Team who won the Division 5 League recently beating Clonaslee in the final.
U13s Football League Winners: An unbelievable win for our U13 footballers in the league final recently in Graiguecullen. Playing to an electric atmosphere and greatly outnumbered by the passionate home support, the boys overturned a two point half time deficit to win the game 5-10 to 2-06.
