U14 Hurling Presentation Dinner:
Last Sunday week, Croom U14 hurlers from 2019 went for a celebration dinner in Bulgaden Castle where they received their medals for a very successful year bringing home the U14 hurling county shield. This was a very young team and it was thier first year playing in a 15 a side competition and to do so well was really encouraging. We would like to thank Paddy McAuliffe for his generosity in sponsoring the meal. Thank you to all the parents who attended and for their support throughout the year. Finally thank you to all the coaches who led and coached this group so well and we look forward to 2020 with a lot of positivity and optimism.
