We brought two teams to Duneske on Saturday morning last to take part in The South Tipp Bórd na nOg U/10Hurling Blitz.
We started group 3 with a game against Skeheenarinky and although we played well and created some good chances we had to give in to a good side that actually went on to win the group and our congratulations to them. We followed that slight disappointment with victories against Ballyneale, Moyle Rovers B and St Mary’s B. Well done lads on a fine performance.
TEAM- Derry Phelan, Shane O’ Connor, Cian O’ Sullivan, Cathal McGuigan, Kenny Dillon, Adam Murphy, Shane Curran, T,J, Quigley, Sean O’ Leary, Jack Houlihan, Jamie Doyle, Conor Tobin, Jack Downey.
Our Group 4 campaign started with a win over Carrick Davins in great game. We followed that up with a hard fought victory over Fr Sheehy’s and in our final game we had a great win against Newcastle to finish top of the group. This is great encouragement for these young hurlers some of them still only 8 years old and they had a really enjoyable day. TEAM- Luke Sheehan, Darren Slattery, Shane Fitzgibbon, Sean Fitzpatrick, Ralph Farrell, Mikey Sweetman, Fergal De Fhaoite, Thomas Hickey, Rhys O Regan. A big thanks to John and Elaine Downey, Dave Charles, Jock O’ Connor, Dave Byrne, Paul Tobin, Dean Slattery and Sean Quirke for their fantastic assistance. To all the parents who made the trip on Saturday thank you very much and to the Cahir club and Bórd na nOg for an extremely well run competition.
Football Training on Wednesday at 6-15 to 7-45 and Hurling training on Saturday morning from 11-30 to 1pm.
