JUNIOR B HURLERS:
The junior Bs play Feenagh Kilmeedy Monday 12th July in Feenagh at 8pm in the West junior B hurling league.
We had a very enjoyable and successful Cúl Camp, jointly run by our GAA and Camogie Clubs.
The Camp ran on the first week of the school holidays, from Monday 5th to Thursday 8th July. We had a great turn out of boys and girls across all the age groups and they enjoyed the hurling, football, rounders and games. Thanks to our Club and County player, Cathal O Neill for dropping in on the last day and going through some drills with the young players.
It was great to see so much activity back at the pitch again. This Camp cannot happen without help from the coaches from both clubs and from the older players who help out and add to the fun and enjoyment for the younger players. Thanks to all for supporting our Cúl Camp, for making it a success and a great start to the kids summer holidays
