Under 8 and Academy.
Last Saturday we hosted Under 8s from Eire Og Nenagh in Pairc na nOg.  We started slowly against the eager Nenagh teams but after a while we upped our performance and we matched them in some very exciting games full of great hurling and skill.  Thanks to Nenagh for travelling and to all our club personnel for helping out. A special word of thanks to our caretaker Bill Dwyer for having the pitch in such wonderful condition.  

Training as normal next Saturday for Academy and Under 8 from 10.00 to 11.00.
