On Saturday we travelled to Killarney the Crokes in a friendly Blitz. When we got there, we split into two teams with Sean S, Calvin, Donnchadh and Cody showing great skill and tenacity to get the ball and get great scores. Ethan, Jack N, and Luke put their body on the line and made huge contributions to their team.

Well done lade it was great to see such spirit and skill and I hear ye were undefeated. The other team comprised of Sean M, Jack D, Tomas and Ronan all of whom gave great examples of how they have progressed through the year with great levels of skill improvement and great team play.

The rest of the team was Dylan, Darragh, Adrian and Rory and once again these boys showed a great level of skills and commitment to each other, they covered, harried, tackled, disposed opponents and kicked some great scores.

Once again we were undefeated. Well done to all the boys it was a wonderful display of skill and being great teammates to each other.

Thanks to the parents who came and gave great support it was much appreciated by all and finally thanks to Crokes for the invitation and the nice surprise at the end.

Next weekend, the Bank holiday weekend, we are off with no training but the weekend after in our own Silvy Mason blitz which signifies the end of the season and always proves to be a wonderful occasion, so until then keep kicking ball and wait for texts to let ye know what is happening.
