We travelled to Passage West, Cork last Saturday morning to their Annual Under 10 Blitz. Over a 100 teams took part from all over Ireland and its a great credit to the Passage West club who put on a brilliant days entertainment for all the participating teams, with face painting, tea and sandwiches, finger food and of course games for all participating clubs.

It was an early start with the bus leaving the Strand Road clubhouse at 7.30am. We made great time on the journey to Cork and after registration got ready with our banners for the big parade with all the other teams through Passage West village and back to their club.

Our third game was against Erin’s Own and players who impressed here were Ella O’Connor, Donna Regan, Taylor Stack, Hollie Leane and Keelan Coffey and Aoibheann McCarthy. Our last game was against East Cork side Lisgoold and we were lucky as just after the final whistle the rain stared to come down. All the girls were presented with their medals and we headed for home stopping off at Supermacs Killarney for a meal .
