Team Pharis - Parish League Champions

On a beautiful Wednesday evening, Fr Healy Park in Loughgiel played host to the Parish League Final.

Over the past few weeks all the girls and boys, 88 children in total, from P4-P7 were gathered together to have weekly games. The teams were named after townlands of Loughgiel, ully, Ballure, Gruig, Pharis, Altnarichard, Glenbush, Ballyweaney and Ballybradden and were coached by volunteers and members of Loughgiel Shamrocks GAC.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that helped out in anyway throughout the duration of the tournament. A special word of thanks to Karen McCormick and Eoin McCloskey for all their organisation and efficient planning. This is an annual tournament that has gone from strength to strength and has played a vital role in the development of all our juvenile players. The final saw the Pharis team hold on after a thrilling final to secure the title of Parish League Champions 2015. If these games are anything to go by and the talent on show, the future is most definitely bright for Loughgiel Shamrocks GAC.
