On Saturday 14th October, 30 of our U10 hurlers accompanied by their coaches and parents set off for an end of season tour to Dublin where they first went on a Guided Tour of Croke Park, visiting Players Lounge, Dressing Rooms, Warm Up Area and exiting though the tunnel to climb the steps to the Presentation Area and the Ard Comhairle Section where they learned about some of the history of Croke Park and then on to a Corporate Box to see what that looked like.
They then took part in some of the interactive games in the museum before having a picnic in the Shadow of the Cusack Stand.
It was then off to Round Towers GAA Club in Clondalkin for two challenge matches, where we got a very warm welcome and in which our players played very well.
To round off the stay the players were treated to Supermacs on the way home.
This is the end of our training and games for 2017 and we eagerly await the start of the 2018 season. Photographs from the day are on our club website.
Our U-12 hurlers had 3 matches close to each other they played South Liberties on Monday 25, Croagh Kilfinny on Wednesday 27 and Killeedy in their last match on Friday 29. Although they were not successful in these matches they were however improving with each match as the experience they have gotten from playing these matches will stand to them as they prepare for the Liam O’Donoghue Tournament.
Well done to this great groups of players
Mungret St. Pauls 0-11 Kilpeacon 2-18
On Saturday 23 September the U-16 hurlers traveled to Mick Neville Park where they met with Kilpeacon. Kilpeacon started off strong while Mungret St. Pauls struggled to get going and this was the way for most of the match. Silly frees gave Kilpeacon their head start with 4 points. Mungret St. Pauls defense were worked hard with the forwards and midfield struggle to break through a sturdy Kilpeacon backline to score.
Our pitches were very busy Saturday morning 23 September as our U-10 hurlers played host to many teams who traveled to play in the Pa O’Brien Hurling Tournament.
Well done to all who took part and showed great sporting ability. Thank you to our coaches Kevin Dore, Alan Browne, Denis Galvin, Majella Ni Lonaigh, Dave Foley and Mary Lloyd.
Thank you also to our referees, stewards and caterers and to our sponsors who help make the day as successful as it was.
A very special Thank you to the O’Brien family.
