Laoch Na Seachtaine:
This weeks heroes of the week really is a no contest! Our under 14 girls team played Feile last Saturday in the blistering heat and did absolutely brilliantly in all 3 games. In the first game they played superb, but unluckily lost to a last minute goal with Aoife Doyle, Sarah Roche and Ashleene Wackas in great form. In the next game Garristown were too strong, but our girls battled back bravely against the odds but were narrowly beaten in the end. The final game against Ballyboughal was the girls best game where their never-say-die attitude kept them in the game, which they lost by just 1 point. Again, great displays from Lara Phipps, Grainne NiFhaolain, Rebecca Walsh and Tara King driving the team on. In all, Gerry their manager was more than pleased with the performances, and the girls were a credit to their team, the club and their families. Take a collective bow girls, you are our Laoch Na Seachtaine.
Our minor boys had 2 big wins in the league this week. On Wednesday night they defeated Naomh Olaf with Kevin Staunton, Matthew Foye and Ozzy excellent while on Sunday morning, they defeated Naomh Mearnog with Ryan Murphy, Eoghan Wall and Eamon Hill all superb. Well done lads. And well done too to Gerry Staunton who had an exceptionally busy weekend!
Our 2 nurseries amalgamated into one big fun day last Saturday in Poppintree park. So instead of our 2 separate nurseries, we had one big outdoor event in Poppintree. Great fun was had by all, even coach Gerry who got wetter than most in the water balloon fight! Our nurseries return to St. Kevins and Trinity Comprehensive next Saturday at the usual times.
Lastly, don’t forget our golf classic on May 25th, all the details of which are on our various internet pages!
