April and May have been busy and successful months for players all over the County, as the Post-Primary and U16 Leagues continued. The competition between clubs has been gaining momentum as we reach round 5 this week, with matches played in hail, rain and shine.

Naomh Brid Brocagh came up just short against Eglish but fared better the following week with a win against Naomh Treasa. Aoife Quinn’s great goals clinched it for the team in the second half.

Naomh Treasa made a come-back in the next round as they took on Tulach Óg and won – but the narrow scoreline was very impressive for the newly formed Post-Primary team from Cookstown!

Omagh hosted Edendork and took the points after a superb team display in spite of the miserable conditions, but each team played brilliantly under the circumstances.

There was a well deserved win for the combined team of Éire Óg and Fr. Shields against another combined team Naomh Padraig! They also pushed Edendork next time out and took them right to the wire but the more experienced Edendork outfit prevailed in the end.

Naomh Padraig (pictured in their impressive new strip sponsored by Coalisland Foot Clinic) used their previous defeat as motivation against Naomh Treasa in round 5, seeing a draw at half-time and a win at full-time!

Clubs will see the U14 league underway this week, with Naomh Treasa, Omagh, Edendork, Naomh Padraig, Eglish, Fr.Shields and Eire Óg all eagerly wanting a win in round 1. Best of luck to all teams!

April saw the return of the Go Games blitz, hosted by Edendork. Twelve teams arrived early, some with one team; some with three, one even had two teams for each age group! The U6/8/10 players lined out under the sunshine and played brilliantly under the watchful eye of our new Young Whistlers who refereed on the day. The next Go Games blitz will be hosted by Fr.Shields in Greencastle on Saturday 26th May.

On Saturday 5th May Derrytresk Club hosted David Herity for a goal-keeping workshop which was well attended from the age group of U14 right through to senior. We hope the players will put their new skills into practice throughout the rest of the season!

Our Tyrone Minor team had a fantastic win over Monaghan on Saturday 5th May, winning the shield and becoming Ulster Minor Champions! Well done to joint captains Kira Donnelly and Aisling McLaughlin, to Reagan Fay for winning player of the match, and to the whole Tyrone Camogie Team and Management. Maith Sibh!
