Pride of place this week must go to the under 14 boys who won the feile final on Easter Monday in wexford park and will now represent wexford at feile an ngael in limerick on the first weekend in July.  Every one of the boys played brilliantly on the day and they are a credit to their mentors, club and families.  We all look forward to a great weekend at feile with a mass exodus from the parish.

The under 12 camogie team had a wonderful day last Saturday at caman to croker. The girls got to play three matches on the croke park pitch, a tour of the stadium and the museum and from all reports they had a great day out.

The U14 girls began their league campaigns successfully. The 'A' team had a hard earned win over a very good Glynn-Barntown side in Killurin on Easter Monday, while the 'B' team had a strong win over Faythe Harriers in glorious sunshine on Saturday morning by 7-5 to 1-0. 

Our minors concluded the first stage of the minor club championship, until play resumes post leaving certificate examinations. 
On Wednesday last, we played Shelmaliers in minor football and St Martins played the first half with the aid of a very strong wind. The opening minutes saw significant possession and attack by Shelmaliers. However, having settled into the game, our team ended the half on a 3-6 to 1-2 scoreline. The second half had the expected change in wind advantage, and Shelmaliers exerted significant pressure on St Martin's. However, our team finished strongly to win out on a 4-8 to 1-7 scoreline.

We played the first of our six games in the minor league today, with the omission of all players involved in the county minor panels. Our first game was hurling v Faythe Harriers, played in Piercestown. The game was very competitive and saw the lead switch between both teams. However, following two late goals, St Martin's ran out winners on a scoreline of 3-12 to 1-15. Our next minor league game is football v Kilmore on Wednesday eveningApril 10th at 7pm
Best wishes to all our minor county players, in both football and hurling, as they start out on the Leinster Minor Championships."

The model county draw is coming up very soon and someone will be calling to your door to ask you to buy a ticket. We would urge all parents and players to support the draw as the funds raised are a huge part of the club's income for the year.
You can follow the club on Facebook, twitter, or the club website to keep up to date with all that is going on.
