ARDFERT DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION is holding it’s AGM on Wednesday 15th April 8.30pm in Ardfert Community Centre. All welcome to attend. ARDFERT/KILMOYLEY COMMUNITY GAMES: Girls indoor soccer*:* There were mixed fortunes for our U13 & U10 teams who were in action this week. On Easter Monday our U13’s were drawn in a group with Listowel, Castlegregory & Knocknagoshal. They played really well in all their games and finished up 3rd in what was a very tough group. The girls really enjoyed the day and most of them are under age again next year. Our U10’s were in action on Sunday last. They defeated Listowel & Glenflesk to reach the final and were narrowly beaten by Duagh/Lyre. They all played their hearts out and were delighted to come home with silver medals. Well done to both teams and a special word of thanks to their coach Artur for all his hard work and dedication over the last few weeks. BOYS’ INDOOR SOCCER:Boys U12 soccer training Thursday 7-8pm at Banna astroturf (note change of time). TAG RUGBY: U11 tag rugby training Saturday 5:30-6:30pm at Banna astroturf.
