The Under 10’s played in the Ballyduff Invitational Hurling Tournament and played 5 matches over 2 separate weekends. It was a real intercounty affair with clubs from Tipperary, Cork and Waterford involved. We have played a number of challenge matches, the most recent one being on Tuesday 23rd June in Ballynoe against St. Catherine’s. This was a wonderful game of hurling from 2 very evenly matched teams. We are continuing to train intensely during the week and encourage all players to carry a hurley around with them to develop their skills. We are developing a very good squad of hurlers and footballers.
Next week sees us train with the Under 9 team and we will play an inter club mixed game. The Parish Leagues were a huge success for this bunch of players, this involved 6 matches over a 6 week period and our squad would like to thank in particular the huge input from Alan Geary, Andrew Murphy and the sponsoring Bulman, O’Sullivan and Pomphrett families. It is with a lot of sadness we bid farewell and bon voyage to Declan Sugrue who heads back home to America on a permanent basis, thanks for the jokes Declan.
Our panel is picked from the following players; Aaron O'Donnell Murphy, Bobby Nicholson, Bartosz Farmas, Charlie O'Brien, Ciaran Reilly, Christopher Buckley, Coady Hickey, Conor Galvin, Declan Sugrue, Donnacha Ruxton, Dylan Byrne, James Murray, Niall Baylor, Oisin Casey, Orin Brooks, PJ McCarthy, Ryan Twohig and Sean Murphy. Coaches: Brian Murphy and Vincent Murray. Logistics: Mags McCarthy. We would love to see new players join our squad, all are welcome at training.
