Senior Camogie. Leinster Club Senior League Div 2 Harps v Rower.


Skerries Harps1-07

Rower Inistioge Kilkenny1-07


A fantastic game of camogie that saw a draw played out with a Harps team made up of Minor, junior and senior players as well as 2 U16 camogie players Aoife Donohue and Hannah Lockhart making their senior debut. A good tough physical match that had the Harps leading right to the last few seconds when the opposition levelled the match through a free. The future of camogie in Skerries Harps is looking bright!!

U16 Girls Football

What a brilliant atmosphere and buzz in the Club house last Sunday evening (6th March) where we held the presentation of medals and end of season party for last season’s u16 amalgamated girls football team. It was a very successful year for this great bunch of girls.

The A team finished the season as League winners. The B team were runners up in the Championship.

A massive well done to each one of the girls, the mentoring team and to all the parents for their support. It really was a great year, and we would like to wish the girls continued success in the year ahead in their respective teams (u16s & Minors).



Both u12 hurling teams played first competitive games of the season
