Hard luck to our Senior football team who lost our on Saturday by the smallest of margins to Dunshaughlin of Meath in the North Leinster Final . Both teams were competitive and gave it their all . Though we questioned some of the decisions during the game we wish Dunshauglin the best of luck in the next round .
The boys were greatly supported by their families friends and teachers who are immensely proud of the manner in which they played and entertained us over the last few months. Thanks to Ferbane GAA and Brian Flynn for their support and a special thanks to Ger Lynam, Conor Clancy, Georgie Digan and Fran Mulhall for all their hard work, leadership, mentoring and commitment given to these lads over the last few years. We have great heart and spirit in Gallen C.S and onwards and upwards we go !
