As the summer months count down the Castleisland Desmonds Club continues their success at all age levels.

The U-13 boys team won the Division 12 County League Final, on Sunday, July 3rd against local rivals Currow.

It was a great achievement for these young men and it was achieved with huge thanks to their trainers and mentors. 

U-7 and U-9 Go Games

The U-7 and U-9 Go Games for the Coiste Na nOg players are underway with the Desmonds hosting both Duagh and Scartaglen recently. 

These non-competitive games give our young players a great chance to practice the skills they learn at weekly training.

They are very successful because of the commitment and dedication of all the trainers and mentors of the teams.
