We had a great training session last Sunday with great numbers showing up on a cold day. With groups split up Dan was working on ball skills, Jimmy was doing ball control, Diarmuid was doing speed work and Martin was doing combination skills.

All those that took part gave a great effort and this really showed at the game at the end. There were so many players who did a great session that it would be too long to mention everyone, well done to all. Don’t forget next Friday is the St. Patricks day parade and it starts at 12.00 so we will meet at the old club house at 11.15 to 11.35 so we can get set up.
