Under 8s - Since our last update in the summer the Under 8’s have had a busy few weeks. The team won their three matches at the annual Danesfort Under 8 tournament in Kilkenny in September, also in September we hosted Kilcormac (Offaly) and Emerald’s (Kilkenny) on another glorious Saturday morning. The following Saturday we had a football match away in Clonmel Óg and our two teams put in a strong performance. After the football the team went bowling and had lunch together in Clonmel, it was enjoyed by all. Finally in September we participated in the Dr Morris Park county hurling blitz series. Early in October we were invited in to Parc na nÓg for a hurling blitz with Durlas Óg, Upperchurch and Loughmore and again our two teams equipped themselves well. Our season will be drawing to a close at the end of October and we have one more football blitz in Dr Morris Park to come and a Skills Tournament on our final day where players will be competing for a host of medals. This season has been a busy one taking us away to play Holycross, Kilcormac (Offaly), Drom & Inch, Boherlahan Dualla, Emeralds (Kilkenny), Danesfort (Kilkenny), Clonmel Óg and Durlas Óg. At home we hosted each of the teams mentioned, with the exception of Clonmel Óg, and we also hosted Moyne Templetuohy. We had the Morris Park series of county blitz’s throughout the year and we would like to thank Andy Ryan and his fellow development officers for their hard work. The Cúl Camp and Easter Camp for the Under 8’s introduced new ideas and both football and hurling were the winners. We would like to thank the coaches of each of the teams mentioned for their welcome and hospitality and to compliment the fine groups of players that they are working with. We look forward to further competitive encounters played in a positive spirit in the coming years. The coaches would like particularly thank the parents who support the work done with the panel, ní neart go cur le chéile.
