.......Mount Leinster Rangers
So who are these champions of Co. Carlow?
Read this extract from their website:
Mount Leinster Rangers GAA Club was founded in 1987 and the amalgamation of 3 pre-existing club teams, Borris, Ballymurphy and Rathanna, within our Parish, was completed in 1988.Since then we have enjoyed great success in all grades and have gone from strength to strength in our short history. We compete in both football, hurling, Camogie and Ladies football at all levels and have contributed handsomely to our County teams on many occasions.
But what is most impressive is their role of honour. Quite impressive indeed since 1988. But what is most impressive is the following fact:
They won the County A U12 for the four years 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. I dont know what they did in 2010, but fairly impressive so far. They also represented their county in Feile na nGael in 2009, so they are well experienced.
One thing is for sure, is that they will be fit and able for their journey to the western seaboard of Ireland. They will be a formidable challenge for our lads and we will look forward to the game.
Overall, an exciting weekend coming up at end of June, and we look forward to making new friends from the boys from Carlow!
