Under 6 Camogie: Our season came to an end with our final game against John Lockes in Callan on Saturday morning 11th September. The girls were kept busy this year with training every Wednesday night and five games against Tullaroan, Freshford and John Lockes. With a panel of 19 enthusiastic players, the improvement in the team was evident from game to game. We have no doubt this group will continue to develop into a fantastic team in the years ahead. Missing from photo on our last day out were Holly Bourke, Jasmine Davis, Hannah Corrigan and sisters Daisy & Darcie Fitzpatrick.
Tom Ryall park was the venue for our Go Game Camogie Blitz this morning (7th August). We played 3 games Emeralds, Tullaroan and Windgap. The girls played some super Camogie showing great skill with superb scores, good defending and brilliant team work. Special word of thanks to our referees Kirsten & Brian.We would like to thank the parents in attendance for their support .
Minor Camogie 2019 was always going to be a big ask as we were now in Roinn A after our great success in beating Thomastown in the U16 Roinn A final in 2018. The challenge to be competitive was made more difficult as we only had one girl up to the age of 18. Not withstanding that we had a bunch of girls who had shown great character over the past few years. So Minor 2019 would be a challenge, a year of learning and a year of maintaining our competitiveness.
U8 News Tuesday 9th June:
Our U8 girls played neighbours Callan in warm conditions. The girls put up a great performance, showing great teamwork and heart. A special well done to the three girls from U6 who played great Camogie with the U8’s tonight.

Well done to our U12’s who had a very hard fought win over John Locke’s on Monday 8th July at home in the League. It was a very close game with neither team winning by much at any stage. The work rate and determination that the girls showed especially in the last 10 minutes was fantastic to see.
All players dug deep to come out with the win on a scoreline of 6-3 to 5-1. Thank you to all who came to support the girls, our next game is on 22nd July. Details to follow!
