Coolera (Sligo) and Ballinamore (Leitrim) are both celebrating national Community Games titles this weekend.

Coolera (pictured top) captured the boys under-14 Tag Rugby title at University of Limerick on Saturday.

The Coolera under-11 also had a top-four finish nationally in their competition.

In the under-10 boys gaelic football competition, Ballinamore from Leitrim (pictured bottom) won gold with impressive semi-final and final victories in Limerick, which included a win over the Dublin and Leinster champions Malahide.

St Mary’s Maugheraboy from Sligo took bronze with the boys under-21 soccer competition – with Ballymote’s girls under-12 seven-a-side team finish fourth nationally.

And – there was a fourth place finish for the Riverstown under-12 skittles team.
