Highlight of the day was when An Ghaeltacht and Corinthians Under 14 played each other in a Ten a side Match. The local side taking the cup 48-26. These two under 14 teams came together at the beginning of the season as both clubs did not have enough players to field a team. They played the 2010/11 season under a joint name of Corinthians/An Ghaeltacht. They bonded very well and the Conamara based players made the 70km round trip twice a week to Corinthians for training. Their hard work was rewarded with the Connacht South League and Connacht Cup titles.
