The U11 girls Camogie machine rolls on with another great display on Sunday. We took a trip out to the seaside ... Well Naomh Mearnog really so we swapped the buckets and spades for hurls and helmets. We arrived out with loads of time so we decided to make full use of the facilities with a full hurling wall session utilising both sides of the wall. Naomh Mearnog were hit with the Spanish Flu which reduced their numbers considerably. We had to split the girls up and rotate them so that everybody got a fair run out. So it was like "Lannigans Ball" for most of the morning.... I stepped in .... I stepped out again. Those who weren't involved in the match played a camogie match between them selves on the other half of the pitch and once they were given the call up by The Director they were well warmed up and ready for action. A great display of camogie came from the Directors daughter our very own Sinead who linked up with Nicole Crowley and between the 2 of them ran the show for one half of a match. We had enough numbers out to have a full "Big Ball" training session on the other pitch to get the girls ready for their first official football outing. Lauren Robinson and Jennifer Bourke shone through with a fine display of dodging some big tackles and hand-passing skills that would put the Kildare backline to shame. Not so sure of "Tall Pauls Quiet drill" as that went out the window pretty quickly. We had 2 girls making their debuts. Mia Kirwan (after coming back from a broken arm) and Rebecca McMullan.


Mothers Day is fast approaching dont forget our ANNUAL MOTHERS DAY BRUNCH ON 18TH MARCH, GREAT CRAIC AND GREAT CAUSE. ALL MONIES GO TO TEMPLE STREET HOSPITAL.
