There were six DRP players on the Summerhill College gaelic
football panel which reached the Connacht Juvenile 'A' league final last
Thursday after a 4-14 to 1-6 win over the 'The Bish' (St Joseph's)
Galway. The club players involved were: Ciarán O'Reilly,
Ciarán Smith, Hugh Keaney, Cian Oates, Desmond Gillen & Ben Kelly.
Well done to all the Sligo GAA personnel who were involved with
last Saturday’s ‘Gaelic Voices For Change’ Solidarity Sleepout on
O’Connell Street in Sligo to raise awareness and funds for homlessness.
The event was a big success raising more than €200,000

performances for North Sligo Athletic Club last Sunday at the
All-Ireland uneven age group cross country championships in County
Waterford. Gemma finished 4th in the girls U11 race, while
Rian finished in a very creditable 33rd place in the boys U13 event.
