Under 12 football resumes on sunday 25th January at St Malachy's College 9.00-10.00am.
Under 12 footballers are those children born in 2003 and 2004.
this year boys born in 2004 and currently in year 6 will have the option to play in the south west antrim go games for years 5 and 6. this will hopefully ensure that players get as much playing time as possible throughout the season.
This will be a decision made in consultation with parents involved.

O Donovan Rossa GAC Belfast are calling on all Gaels, on Friday the 26th December (St Stephens day), to support a fun run up on the Divis mountain.

This year Rossa and Antrim lost a true Gael with the sudden passing of Ronan Boyle and with the permission of his family we are dedicating this run in his memory.

On the day of the run which is now in its 7th year we will be asking for a small donation, Ronan’s family have requested that all funds raised go to the Cormac McAnallen Trust, set up to Raise Awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. We would really appreciate it if you could make it on the day as you would be supporting a very worthy cause. So why not make it a family occasion and bring the kids (with their new bikes) and even the family pet? The run or walk is approx 5 km and will be starting from the cark park on top of Divis, across to the stone and back. We want to assemble at 10.45am and hope to start at 11am.

Last year I took part in this and there were a number of Gaels from other clubs who took part it would be great this year to have even more. It is only 10-15 minutes away over the back road from Glengormley.

Go raibh maith agaibh

The jerseys featured are the County development squad jerseys U14 to U17. They start from the right at U14 and as the age increases the more saffron the jersey becomes. They are not available for general sale

Can anyone tell me what the jerseys are that are pictured on the website? They look great but I can't tell if they are anything to do with Naomh Éanna or not. Is there an explanation somewhere and I'm too stupid to see it on the site? ( Fairly likely!) Could someone throw some light on this, le do thoil? Peadar/Peter.

Minor Football League Final
Naomh Éanna 2-11 v O'Donovan Rossa 0-05
Sunday 30th November 2014 - report by Michael Scott
Naomh Éanna minors played their last game of the season in the minor league final. The match was played at Rossa, with the sun shining and a dry pitch it was ideal conditions for a game.
Naomh Éanna started brightly, they included 11 players who had played in the U21 championship semi final defeat to Naomh Eoin the previous week. Anto Curran with his first touch of the ball scored a nice point which was quickly followed with another from Eoin McNulty. Rossa were struggling with the pace of the game. They appeared unable to keep up with the Naomh Éanna running game . Their problems were compounded when Conan Little broke from defence, he played a one two with Ruairi Scott and then played a delightful pass to James MacAuley who blasted the ball to the net.
It took Rossa 15 minutes to register their first score, by that stage Naomh Éanna were already 5 ahead. Naomh Éanna who were playing some lovely football were not letting up. Two more points from Scott and Thompson quickly followed by another goal by MacAuley had Naomh Éanna out of sight. Rossa tried to get back into the game with high balls into their forward line but the Naomh Éanna as defence held strong. The full back line of Eastwood, McNamee and McNulty were not giving the Rossa forwards an inch. Odhran Eastwood scored the last point before half time to put Naomh Éanna 2-05 to 0-03 ahead.

The second half started just like the first with a quick point from Anto Curran. Rossa were beginning to get frustrated. Further points from Scott and Eastwood stretched the Endas lead still further. Rossa then lost a man for an off the ball offence. With Naomh Éanna ahead on a score-line of 2-08 to 0-03, there was no way back for Rossa.
Rory Morgan and Ciaran Thompson completed the Naomh Éanna Scoring.
Final score Naomh Éanna 2-11 Rossa 0-05.

Two trophies for the season – the Laverty cup (SW championship) and the all County league is some reward for the season, however there must still be some disappointment for the all county championship defeat back in early August.

The team:
K Jennings, D McNulty, F Eastwood, M McNamee, C Eastwood, P Healy, K Hillen, R Scott (0.03), J Maskey,
C Little, J MacAuley (2.0), A Curran (0.02), C Thompson (0.02), O Eastwood (0.02), E McNulty (0.01), subs R Morgan (0.01).
