We had a record season in 2022/2023! Our 1s team won the Connacht Senior League and placed in the final of the Connacht Senior Cup. Our EYHL 2 team won our first ever EY game against Muckross! Our Irish Hockey Trophy and Irish Hockey Challenge teams both made it to the finals in UCD after tough rounds travelling all over the country, after two tough matches we left Dublin as the victors of the Irish Hockey Trophy!!! A moment the club will always remember!
The 2s did very well competing in the Connacht 1A league showing the high level of skill carried throughout the club.
The 3s had a very impressive season placing second in the Div 2 league and winning the Connacht Shield!
