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.

Our U8 hurlers have had a busy time over the last few weeks.
First up we paid a visit to John Lockes in Callan. We had a strong panel which was split into 2 teams. We enjoyed victory in 3 out of the 4 matches and the boys had a great time.
There was some great Goalkeeping on view from both teams. All the lifting practice that the boys have been doing is certainly paying dividends with some great solo runs and scoring, particularly from midfield.
Some of our U8 Hurlers of the Week so far in 2016, Cian Ronan, Dara Barut, David Walton, Aidan Ging, Shane Hogan & Sean O’Halloran. Well done lads and keep up the great work!

Our Training began in February in Wallslough Indoor Arena, moving to twice weekly training at the Pitch in Kilmanagh and ended with a great day in McDonalds in September!
As with all Sport, our panel consisted of boys who each had their own skill set, determination and love of the game, but importantly, each had their own part to play in the panel that ensured that it was the Team Success that mattered at the end of the year. Read more
