The boys F.A.I. soccer finals took place on Thursday 15th at Donamon with Glinsk N.S. taking on Granlahan N.S., Woodbrook N.S. and Aughrim N.S. They gave a great team performance throughout all the matches winning each match to go through to the final against Loughglynn N.S.
The final was the fourth match in a row for the boys and in very difficult wet conditions, Loughglynn proved too strong on the day but the team performance augers well for next year.
