Anglo Printers Louth GAA JFC Final 2018
Thu Oct 4, 2018
The Anglo Printers Louth GAA Junior final takes place on Sunday following very exciting knockout stages along the way. We had a wee chat with the team captains of finalists Glyde Rangers and Dundalk Young Irelands to find out what makes them tick! We heard that there is great excitement in Tallanstown and Dundalk with both areas decked out in their respective Team colours. It is an honour to sponsor the Louth GAA Junior Championship and we would like to wish both teams the best of luck on the day. It promises to be a cracking match!
