Fixtures Reserves: 
Our 2016 season gets underway on this coming Sunday 6th March when our Reserves make the long trip to Truagh for a 12 noon throw in. Why not go along and support the lads if you’re on your way to Clones to see Monaghan play Mayo

Inis Caoin Grattan’s GAA would like to express our sincere sympathy and condolences to the family and friends of our Honorary President Canon Peter McGuinness who has gone to his eternal reward. Fr. Peter as he preferred to be called came from Antrim and brought his love for hurling to Inniskeen when he was appointed Parish Priest in 1986. He along with Paddy O’Rourke and others were instrumental in fostering a love for hurling among a group of young lads which culminated in us winning Monaghan senior hurling championships & leagues along with an Ulster junior championship in 2010 and for that we are eternally grateful. Ar dheis lamh Dé go raibh a anam dhilis.
