Juvenile Notes - 25th March

Minor Football
Our minor football team played their latest round of the county minor championship on Sunday morning last away to Gaultier. After a poor start we settled into the game and came away with a hard earned victory.

It was great to see so many of our young kids decked out in their club colours in the St. Patrick’s Day parade. Everyone involved seemed to enjoy themselves and a big thank you must go to all the adults who helped out on the day.

Under 8
On Saturday morning of last week our under 8 team took part in a blitz in Carriganore and everyone involved had a great day out.

It is vital that everyone in the club has their membership paid before the end of the month. The membership is as always vital for insurance reasons. Parents co operation on this matter would be very much appreciated.

Everyone in the club would like to congratulate all the kids in the parish who have made their Confirmation over the last few weeks.

Outdoor Hurling
Our outdoor hurling sessions continue again on Saturday morning the 28th March at our club grounds. These sessions will include under 6, 7 and 8s and will run from 10.30 to 11.30. Our under 9 team will train between the time of 11.30 and 12.30 at our wall ball. All are welcome to attend and it would be great to see some new faces. Helmets will be available to buy at a discounted rate at these sessions.

Under 10 11 and 12
The under 10 team will train between the time of 6 and 7 on a Friday evening at the wall ball and the under 11 team between 7 and 8 on a Friday night. Our under 12 team will train between 7 and 8 on a Wednesday night again at the wall ball. Again all are welcome to attend.

Under 10
The U10's played their next game in the Western Football League on Friday night (20th March) at the club grounds. Tallow were the visitors to Abbeyside. Following good displays already, the boys backed it up with their best performance to date with scores coming from all over the pitch. The match was played under the lights and all the boys were delighted with the opportunity to play a game with the floodlights on. We were due to play the Nire on Monday night (23rd) in the Nire. Report next week. No training Friday night (27th) as we have a blitz in Carriganore on the Saturday.

We are asking supporters and friends to support this project over the next five years.
