Camogie Notes - 15th March

Training
We had a fantastic turn out for our first night of training on Friday night. It was great to see the club grounds a hive of activity with all the different age groups, the rain held off long enough for us to get some training in.  Our next night of training is Friday, 24th March from 6pm until 7pm for U6, U8, U10, U12 and U13.  New members always welcome. This Friday is St. Patrick’s Day so there will be no training. We are walking in the parade with the boys so we are hoping to have as many kids as possible join us. We are meeting at Nugents Centra at 2:30 pm and please wear your Camoige half zip tops or blue and yellow tops.

Post Primary Schools Games
On Sunday last St.Augustine’s College recorded a huge win over Holy Rosary Mountbellew of Galway in the Semi Final of the All Ireland Colleges Hurling. To be able to record such a big win only a week after winning the Munster Football Championship is a great credit to the team and their management team. There’s no rest for the team though as this weekend they are back in action against Strokestown of Roscommon in the All Ireland Colleges Football Semi Final with no venue confirmed as of yet. We wish them the very best of luck as they seek to qualify for two All Ireland Finals in the same year.
