Now that the dust has settled on what could be called a successful minor football season even though we were stopped at semi-final we can look back and congratulate the management of Declan Kiely, John Paul Keoghan and Kevin Daly plus the players who gave their all in what was great display of heart and physicality during the Championship. Well done to all concerned. Last Sunday our minors travelled to Mulinahone to take on the local team in a Minor Hurling Challenge and came away with a good win with the score line of 2 19 to 1 12. Also our u 16 team had a good win over Cappoquin on Sunday in Clogherane well done to all concerned. PANEL C Flynn, S Dalton, E Fraher, M Power, T Murray, J Burke, M Mc Garry, O Morrissey, W O Donnell, C Coward, T Loftus, J Shaw, A Shanahan, M Mc Donagh, S Mc Grath, J O Callaghan, P Walsh, C Keoghan, R O Dwyer.
The next game for our Juniors is on Friday 14th of July at 7.30 in Colligan v Four Mile Water, we ask all our club members to support all our teams.
As the Munster Championships have now ended you would imagine that all the hurling experts that we have in the club surely someone would predict that Cork would win the Munster Hurling Final, someone, nobody did, Out of 100 people nobody came up with the Rebel Hurlers, well done to all concerned, as for Kerry well 96 people had the Kingdom on top in the Football. Next week we will be able to give the top 5 in the contest.
I have been asked by Niamh Harty to mention that this years Cul Camp will run from the 24th of July to the 28th. This is an ideal chance for children to have a week of specialised training in both hurling and Football and also have great fun with all their friends.
As I mentioned above we travelled to Mulinahone on Sunday last to support our Minor Hurlers and I saw this sign which is a reminder to all who support our Juvenile Teams.
