Well done to all our U8’s who over the past six weeks have played a blitz amongst themselves. Split into four teams, every Saturday morning saw teams go to battle where the standard of hurling on show was top notch. Over 3o children were given the opportunity for small sided games were touches of the ball were a plenty.
A sincere word of thanks must go to the coaches of Jody Sweeney, Bill Morrissey, Pat Blake, Aoife Campion, Marian Jones and Caroline Daly who organised the games and were at hand each Saturday morning to referee the games.
Saturday gone saw the final day of the blitz where it was all to play for amongst the four teams (All Stars, Tipperary, Tipp Top and the Killers) with the All Stars coming out on top. Each child was then presented with a medal kindly sponsored by Pat O’Connor to mark the end of the hurling year. The children were very lucky to have All Ireland Medalists Conor Bowe, Gearoid O’Connor and Roisín Daly present the medals to the children. Our thanks to Aoife, Marian and Caroline for providing the refreshments afterwards.
This ends the hurling for our U8s for 2019 however over the month of November the children will take part in a similar blitz this time with the big ball.
Well done to all the children who took part.
