O’Loughlin Gaels U7 Hurling Blitz

We had a thoroughly enjoyable day at the O’Loughlin Gaels U7 Blitz on 22nd June.

Well done to all 29 hurlers who played their hearts out over the course of the day. Everybody got to play 3 games which were played in fantastic spirit and with great enthusiasm. Both parents and mentors were delighted with their efforts and the boys were thrilled with their well deserved medals.

JJ Kavanagh Junior B Hurling Championship Final – GBC v O’Loughlin Gaels

The Final of the JJ Kavanagh Junior “B” Hurling Championship Final took place in Nowlan Park on last Sunday 9th September. It was a repeat of the Junior League Final pairings and as GBC and O’Loughlin Gaels took to the field, a close contest was anticipated by the large attendance.  These expectations were vindicated in the opening quarter as both teams struggled to find scores. Slowly GBC got the better of the exchanges and build up a seven point lead coming close to the half time break. Read more

U11 Blitz – Saturday 21st April 2018

Report by Olivia Hogan

What a glorious day to start the Under 11’s hurling season in the Boro at the CBS Secondary School blitz and despite the results not going our way, the performance of the boys was as bright as the day that was in it.

The first game against John Locks saw our first goal belted into the net by Cian Ronan.
Eastie then made a fine clearance from the backs that would have surely resulted in a score only for his quick reaction. Corms Neary showed that he could not only stop the scores in goal but when outfield could pop them over the bar too. Even with the heat of the day, the cool heads of Ben McEvoy and Michael Tynan were dazzling.
