On Saturday last we ran our annual club day for our juvenile members. On the day we got a great turn out and we had 191 children present between 5 and 12 years of age. The gods shined on us throughout as the weather was wonderful which added to the occasion. Everyone within the club would like to thank our special guest Waterford hurler Colin Dunford who was a success with both adults and juveniles alike and gave of his time very generously to make the event the success it was.
A special word of thanks must go to all the parents who helped out with cakes, buns and their free time to make sure everyone was well fed and watered. Also a big thank you must go to Audrey and Niamh who were the main organisers on the day, without whom the event would not have run as smoothly as it did. Also to all the coaches present a special well done must go as they did a superb job with the massive numbers present. Well done to all.

On Wednesday last we took on Clonea Power in the semi final of the minor hurling championship at Fraher Field. On the night we played our best hurling to date in this year’s championship and came away with a comprehensive win. We now await Clann na Gael in the final who beat a very strong St. Pat's team in the other semi final and at the time of writing the fixture of this match has not been announced but will be included in these notes as soon as possible.
Under 12 Hurling
On Saturday last week we travelled to Erins Own in Cork to take part in a blitz. On the day the lads played tremendous hurling throughout and got to the final against a very strong Midleton group who won the blitz by six points in the end. Every one of the lads present gave their all throughout and were very unlucky in the final to just come up short. Again a special word of thanks must go to all the players, mentors and parents who travelled on the day.
Under 16 Hurling
Our Under 16 hurling team take on Ballygunner in the quarter final of the county championship on Sunday next. Our lads will be up against it here but hopefully with some heart and determination our lads can lift it from previous matches and get a good performance going on the day.
Under 14 Hurling
On Monday night last we took on Ballygunner in the under 14 hurling semi final away from home. At the time of going to print the result of this match was not available but will be included in next week’s notes.
