It’s Championship season for sure and our u15s will travel to Freshford tonight (Wednesday) for a Qtr Final clash versus Galmoy/windgap. These teams had a good auld rattle during the league with the combined team getting the better of the Gaels. Our boys will be hoping to rectify matters here and will require your support. The match throws in at 7pm
SUMMER CAMP ‘18
Summer Camp ’18 is now in it’s second week and has been a huge success. Day 2 of this years Summer Camp revealed the brand new Summer Camp Jersey and it was a great hit with almost 240 happy Campers from week 1 brimming with excitement. Big players are expected to visit over the next few days and offer tips to our Gaels to develop their skills. St Johns Park will be bursting at the seams until August the 11th so plenty of action still to come. Please note the Summer Camp will end at 12pm on Saturday..plenty of guests and plenty of lovely hurling.
Junior B Hurling League.
Graigue Ballycallan 2-13 to 2-15 O’Loughlin Gaels
A good hard fought win against a very strong home side was just reward for a sterling effort by this group of players. The Gaels were always going to be up against it as Graigue top the table. With the Gaels finishing second however these sides will meet again in a week or so in a league final. Well done to all involved.
The u13s bowed out of the Lisdowney 7s at the qtr final stage when they were defested by eventual winners Clara. The boys did very well winning their first two games handsomely to compete in the prestigious cup competition. The boys train hard now over the next few weeks to get ready for their championships
Please support all out teams
