Not even a couple of drenching Summer showers could put a dampener on the feast of football that was served up at Palmershill on Bank Holiday Monday, as Cashel Townâ€™s Summer soccer blitz came to a fantastic climax in front of a huge crowd of parents and supporters.
A superbly organised event in which over 160 boys and girls from Cashel and the surrounding villages participated in, has shown that when it comes to showing off the best of sporting talent, one doesnâ€™t need to look at the Olympics, but simply to make their way to the pitches in their local areas.
The blitz was run over a week and 24 games were played before the final three teams came out on top. The players themselves, ranged from five years of age, up to 13, with both boys and girls competing on an equal footing, and the semi finals and finals played on Monday, were tough, tight and ultimately, thoroughly entertaining.
