All Ireland Final - Colga Ladies, Sunday, Sept 1st, 3pm

Sunday marks the highlight of the year for ladies junior football in Ireland. We are proud that Colga's ladies junior team will complete in the FAI All Ireland final this coming Sunday. For those of us who have grown up playing and loving the game, you know well the sense of achievement and excitement to get the opportunity to play in the biggest game on the football calendar. For year's, through the work of so many people, Colga has focused in developing the girls and ladies game - on Sunday, the culmination of all of that effort goes on display against Douglas of Cork. I can but wish Dave Morrissey and the team all the best of luck on Sunday. Kick off is 3pm in Fahy's Field in Mervue - it would be great to see as many Colga supporters as possible at the match.

Beginning of new season

The new mens/boys season kicked off yesterday with Gerry Martin's team beating Cois Fharraige 2-1 in our opening game. Great way to get things going - the junior team have another game Thursday evening away to Medtronic...a team that was promoted last season.
The season opens for the underage male teams on Saturday, Sept 7th, with matches already scheduled for each one of our teams (u16/15/14/13/12s) over the weekend - all of the fixtures are up to date on

The club is also preparing for our junior ladies FAI Cup final which takes place in Fahy's Field, Mervue, on Sunday, September 1st. The game against Douglas of Cork should prove a humdinger so please keep an eye on our web site + facebook page for final details. This is a proud moment for the club.

Good luck to all of the players across the junior and juvenile teams as the season kicks off.
