Pride of place this week goes to our underage Club hurlers Conor Reavey and Patrick McVerry who were selected to be part of the Ulster Hurling Team Panel which will face a Dublin selection this Tuesday night. The two young hurlers were part of a panel of 24 selected from seventy players. This is a great achievement and all involved with Cuan Mhuire are rightly proud of them.

An Coiste, members & players of Craobh Rua wish to extend their sincerest sympathies to our esteemed club mentor & member James McCartan, his son Jamie a member of our Under 8 team and the McCartan Family on the death of their mother Imelda
