Winners of our Players of the Week looking to emulate Bubbles O’ Dwyer and Seamus Callanan were Ben Currie and Daragh Bouchier – well done boys! Thanks also to County GDA Jonathan Tallon who dropped in to see our young hurlers training on Tuesday evening.
Our U10 Hurlers travelled to Gorey this morning to take part in the Bill Cullen Cup, where we played the hosts, Faythe Harriers from Wexford and Arklow Rocks. We were well able to hold our own in this company and it was a great experience for the kids. Conor MacDonald the Wexford full forward spoke to the group before the game and told them how he played in the same tournament when he was U10. Many thanks to Liam Flynn and Naomh Eanna Club for the invitation and a great event – our lads were impressed with the sausages and chips after the game!
