Well done to Eimear Heffernan who won the Munster Junior A Camogie Post Primary Schools' Final with Ursuline Thurles. Finally, congratulations to Emer McCarthy and Fiona Tuohy who are part of the Cashel Town Schoolgirls FC team who made history recently when they reached the semi final of the FAI National Under 14 Cup for the first time ever. The girls will face Kilmore Celtic FC from Dublin in the final four. There is no date fixed for the game yet but with the Cashel girls having secured a home venue for the semi final, hopefully a big crowd will make their way to Palmer's Hill to cheer on the team.
