Tipperary senior hurling star Padraic Maher took time out from his busy schedule to give some training tips to the boys and girls taking part in the GAA Cul Camp at Davin GAA Club last week.

The Tipperary vice-captain from Thurles Sarsfields visited the summer camp last Wednesday to impart some advice to the kids and show them some of his hurling skills. He also obliged by signing autographs and jerseys for the excited younsters.

There was another treat in store for the young GAA players when Tipperary minor hurling captain and minor football team member Bill Maher visited the summer camp at Davin Park.

The double Munster medal winner arrived in the company of fellow Kilsheelan man and Tipperary County Board Chairman Sean Nugent.

The Kelloggs’s GAA summer Cul Camp was a huge success overall, attracting a large number of children between the ages six and 14.

Throughout the week the children improved their gaelic games skills through fun games and competitions under the guidance of coaches Michael White, James Logue, Matthew Norris and Niamh Maher.

A GAA skills competition was run at the camp and the winners were as follows: Boys hurling: U-12 Connor Whelan, U-10 Ryan Nolan, U-8 Dylan Morrisey-Hackett; Boys football: U-12 Niall Tobin, U-10 Jake Maher and U-8 Connor O’Shea; Camoige: U-12 Saoirse Still, U-10 Jodie Butler and U-8 Caitlin Shepard; Girls football: U-12 Molly Coady, U-10 Ava Tobin and U-8 Abbie Robinson.

All winners will represent the Davin Club in the county skills competition in Dr Morris Park in Thurles.

The Club said it wished to thank the coaches for their hard work, Padraic Maher and Bill Maher for visiting the camp and the Cul Camp sponsors Mark Fitzgerald of the Premier Bar, Carrickbeg and Alan Faulkner Plastering for their generosity.
