Feile Fast Approaching
We intend to hold a sponsored walk and run on the 13th March at 5.30 pm in aid of the Feile 2016. Everyone is welcome to participate including young and old, so grab your trainers and put this date in your diary and help raise a few Euro to host this prestigious event in June.
Our Under 16 footballers start their county championship campaign this coming weekend against Tramore. This team has been preparing away quietly for the last few weeks and hopefully they will get their campaign off to a winning start. All in the club wish everyone involved well.
Our Under 14 team were due to take on Tramore in the Under 14 Football Championship first round game on Sunday last. However due to poor weather conditions this game was called off along with all other under 14 matches in the county. This game will now have to be played at a later date. The next game for this group of players is pencilled in for a fortnight’s time against Gaultir.
Membership for 2016 for our juvenile players is now due. We ask for parents to co-operate with us and pay the membership as soon as possible. This is to make sure that all players are insured as if they are not members they are not insured which is outside our control.
Under eleven hurling training continues this Friday night between 6 and 7 pm. New members are always welcome and membership forms will be handed out on the night.
Under 10 and 13
Training for the Under 10 and Under 13 age groups will go ahead again this Friday night in the wall ball. The Under 10 team will train between 7 and 8 pm and the Under 13 team will train between 8 and 9 pm. All are welcome to attend.
On Saturday week last the 13th February our Under 8 football team took part in a blitz in Kilgobinet. On the day all the lads performed well and all who took part really enjoyed the experience. Well done to all.
On Saturday morning last our Under 9 hurling team took part in their first blitz of the year in Kilgobinet. Again all accounted themselves well on the day and showed steady improvement on the year before. All must have been out practising against their walls at home over the winter. The action continues this weekend for this group of players when they will travel to the same venue for a football blitz.
The underage outdoor hurling season began on Saturday morning last for the groups between Under 5 and Under 8. The Under 9 team would usually be included in these sessions too but were playing a blitz last weekend and have another one coming up this weekend. These sessions continue this Saturday February 27th 2016 for anyone between the ages of 5 and 8. New members are always welcome and hurleys and helmets will be available on the day. These sessions will continue weekly on a Saturday morning between 10.30 am and 11.30. This and next Saturday which are February 27th and March 5th will be allocated as membership days where we hope to collect all the membership for the relevant age groups.
Our minor football team got their championship up and running on Sunday morning last against the Nire. After a hard fought game throughout our lads came away with a fairly comfortable victory in the end. We played some good football throughout but like in all games we need to show improvment as we go on in the championship if we are to progress.
