All Under 21s, Minors and Intermediates please note that joint training takes place every Tuesday and Friday evening,

Under 10s

The U10s kick started the season in winning fashion last Wednesday evening in Newcastle at the Ground hurling tournament organised by South Tipp Games co-ordinator Johnny Cummins. We had two squads of ten players competing in finals with both teams emerging victorious over Cahir. Captain of team 1 Sam Johnson led from the front scoring goals and then stopping goals down the other end. Captain of team 2 was Sean Kenny who battled hard from the off and drove his team on to victory. A pleasing aspect of play from all the kids was the willingness to use both sides when striking the ball. Once again thank you to all the parents who helped with transport. Onwards and upwards.

Juvenile Training

As can be seen from progress with the U/10s, juvenile training continues to bear fruit and new players are always welcome. Any parents out there wishing to see whether their young son or daughter would like to play hurling, we are looking for all 5, 6 and 7 year olds to come along on Saturday morning to the GAA Centre, Western Road at 10 am.

U-10: 10 am – 11.30 am
