Durlas Og - Tipperary Star Notes

posted May 20, 2017, 1:25 PM by John Smith
The following Durlas Og notes were published in this weeks Tipperary Star:

Under 8 and Academy
Training continues as usual on Saturday morning at 10.00.

Under 10
On Sunday May 21st at 11.30am we are hosting Cork Sarsfields.  All players are to assemble at 11.10 am.  If any parents can assist in the making and  distribution of sandwiches, cakes etc., after the game, it would be greatly appreciated.  They looked after us really well in the corresponding fixture in Glanmire two years ago  when our boys were under 8s. As they will be bringing big numbers we are hoping for a full attendance. Training will proceed as normal on Saturday 20th.

Under 12
Under 12 Team 1 football. We lost our county semi-final after extra time to a very good Nenagh side, on a score line of 2-07 to 2-04. Our boys played their hearts out and just came up short.  Congratulations to Nenagh. That completes our football for this year.

Hurling training times will be advised by team mentors.

Under 14
Durlas Óg u 14 Féile Fundraiser
We are organising a clothing collection to help fundraise for the Under 14s Feile Team.  We would ask that anyone who has unwanted clothes, shoes, purses, duvet covers and pillow covers, put the items in black bags and leave them at the clubhouse doors during training and match times. We are running this until June 1st so its time to do a big clearout!    Please support our clothing drive.

Under 14 training as advised by mentor.

Under 16
It was a busy week for our U16 panel. First up was the Mid A Football final in Boherlahan where we were beaten by an impressive Moycarkey side. Lady luck certainly did not smile on us as we lost Paddy Creedon through injury in the first few , and then Henry Fogarty had to leave the field half way through the first half after a clash of heads. Despite these setbacks we were still in the game at half time when we trailed by 3. Moycarkey were more dominant in the second half and ran out deserving winners in the end. It was a disappointing way for these footballers to end their time with Durlas Og, as they had won the U12 and U14 competitions as well as winning the Feile Peil two years ago. There was little time for licking wounds as we took part in the James Stephens Hurling tournament in Kilkenny on Saturday. We lost to Kilmacud Crokes but defeated Moycarkey, in the group stages and so qualified for the Shield Final where we overcame Mount Sion from Waterford in the final. Training continues as advised by mentors.
